What does your dream lifestyle look like? Are you living that dream lifestyle or at least working towards it? The I-Quadrant is the place to be in order to attain true fulfillment where you don’t have to worry about time or money when making decisions. This is the ultimate level of financial freedom which gives you total control of your life. Think about people like Warren Buffet, Strive Masiyiwa, Richard Branson, Oprah Winfrey, Mark Zuckerberg and all the other wealthy people of this world. They are living the lifestyle that most people only ever dream of.
One of my goals in life is to travel all over the world to see different places and learn about other cultures. There’s a quote by St. Augustine that goes, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” I figured very early that I was never going to realize that goal by remaining on the left side of the quadrant and so I have been working to move towards the right side over the last few years. I am not yet where I want to be but at the same time I’m not where I used to be. It is a process, it is a journey. It’s also important to remember that the journey is the prize.
A key factor to keep in mind is that time is the greatest resource you have at your disposal. Avoid procrastinating by all means because the longer you put off doing what you know you should be doing the harder it may get to actually get started. As you grow you begin having additional responsibilities which may make it difficult for you to get going. Use the time you have now wisely to avoid carrying regrets later on in your life.
Sometimes you may be in the right place at the right time. However, it’s more imperative to BE THE RIGHT PERSON in the right place at the right time. Take action, no matter how small or insignificant it might appear. Think about what achieving financial freedom would mean for you. Some of the common motivators I’ve come across include:
- Being able to spend more time with family without having to worry about income
- Having an income to take care of retirement needs
- College education fees for children
- Leaving an inheritance for generations
- Traveling the world
- Contributing to the less privileged and noble causes, and more
You owe it to yourself and the world around you to pursue financial freedom. It’s not just about you but also about helping the people in your life that really matter.
