No Limits| The Freedom Blog

"Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one's thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.                                                                                                      Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

FINTILOC= Financial freedom, Time freedom, Location freedom.

Is your business or profession structured in such a way that you can manage it from anywhere and maintain it with a minimum of time? 

Can you restructure your business life in such a way that you spend only 2-3 hours per week running it?

If so, could your business produce enough net income to allow you to live anywhere?

FINTILOC at first is an idea, then it becomes a practice, then it becomes a state of mind. Soon the idea permeates your life and living in freedom is your reality.

For most of us though, we have been programmed from childhood to get a good education, get a good job, build a family, work hard, build wealth and when the time comes, retire. The white picket fence syndrome...

The truth is that we spend our lives working to support the lifestyle, instead of the work/business supporting the lifestyle. No matter how you slice it you are trading your time for money. Time is one commodity you can't afford to trade!

Are you truly living the life you originally dreamed of or have you merely convinced yourself that you are happy because you are "successful" and reward yourself with vacations and possessions?  Vacations were invented for factory workers. The whole idea of vacations comes from management’s need to keep the workers satisfied. And give them time off to spend their money....

Your life should BE a VACATION. Why is a vacation a  reward? This is your life, live it as you choose!

We are upside down on all of this because we have become so needy and impatient that we were willing to enslave ourselves to banks and lenders to fund the lifestyle we think we need now. And if you look really hard, it probably isn't actually the life you wanted....

The years we should have spent with our children and family having adventures and creating memories are instead wasted on years spent in offices and cubicles or in cars commuting to offices.

We keep waiting for retirement and more time.... later. Meanwhile the years fly by and soon the children go off to college or start their own lives and you wonder where the time went.

Now you want to make up for lost time but your energy seems to have gone, your interest has lessened…… you’ve waited too long to live your dreams…..
