Promote Wealth through Simple Living
Have you ever thought about simple living as a way to achieve financial freedom? It can be an important tool for wealth building. Living a simple life allows you to focus on things that are important to you – like frugal living and building wealth.
If you practice something other than voluntary simplicity, then your life is likely to be more chaotic, more complex and much more demanding on you. It takes time, effort and money to manage such a chaotic life.
Choosing to live simply gives you more time and energy to focus - and focus is very important.
I sometimes sit in awe listening to Jose Feliciano play the guitar and sing. He is phenomenal. There isn’t another one like him. Do you think he is so very accomplished because he performs as a hobby?
Don’t kid yourself. No one makes it to the top of the game as a hobbyist. All successful people focus on building skills and experience like no one else. Jose Feliciano made it his passion to be the best nylon string guitar player, and that is why he is so phenomenal – he stayed focused on being the best.
This technique of focus will work for you as well. First get comfortable with living simply so you can eliminate clutter and distractions from your life. Only then can you focus on accomplishing your financial goals by following your strategies.
Think of life’s complexities and distractions as “tar babies” to steer clear of. You won’t be able to win the financial race if you get caught up in them. Keep it simple and let others lead that exciting, hectic and costly lifestyle.
You only have so much time available to you. You can only be in one place at a time. Your brain can only hold so much information. If you don’t know your own limitations, you can end up stretching yourself too thin.
Simple living allows you to have better focus on your frugal living goals. Remember: focus, focus, focus – it works, it works, it works.
