Never Give Up

The Sixth Step to Financial Freedom

The sixth step to financial freedom is to never give up and to be dedicated. Financial freedom is not easy. You can’t just join a get rich quick scheme or read a book and suddenly you’re wealthy. Nothing in life that is worth having is easy, but ask anyone who has achieved greatness and they will tell you it’s worth every ounce of effort. Financial freedom is however easier than what you might think it is and by following these 7 steps you are well on your way to achieving it.

If you really want financial freedom then be prepared to put in the work required to get you there. A professional sportsman does not just become the best in the world because s/he has been born with talent. Sure, talent plays a part, and a talented sportsman would be good at a sport, but certainly not the best if s/he did not dedicate hour after hour to learning and practicing and of course, they never give up.

The same applies to financial freedom; you’re not going to just wake up rich one day, you need to put in the effort to get there. "If you knew how much work went into it, you wouldn't call it genius." ~ Michelangelo (More inspirational Quotes here)

Accumulating unlimited wealth and never having to work a job ever again is a very real and very achievable goal. There have been many people worse off than you that have achieved it before and many more will in the future.

Unfortunately there are people out there that I like to call “Dream Snatchers” that want to rob you of your dream. They will tell you that you are being silly, or that you have your head stuck in the clouds and are just dreaming. These people will give you every reason imaginable why you will fail building a business or why property investment is bad or why you are a fool to be striving to be rich.

Sadly, these people are often the people closest to you, the people whose opinion you value and it hurts when they knock you, your ideas and your dreams down. These people could be your spouse or parents or children, heck it could even be you. They are not telling you this to be nasty, they’re trying to look out for you and they don’t want to see you disappointed and crushed if it doesn’t work out. The fact is these people could unintentionally put the seeds of doubt into your head where you start to question your dreams and ambitions and eventually you may want to simply give up. NEVER GIVE UP!

Another statistic that you might already be aware of is that nine out of ten new businesses fail. I am not bringing this up here to frighten you, on the contrary, to encourage you. If nine out of ten businesses fail, that means you only have to fail nine times before you find success! Would you rather never try a new venture and never have or would you rather try and fail nine times but on the tenth attempt succeed and have everything you have ever dreamed of? Even if it takes you ten years, surly that’s better than working a job for forty plus years only to retire with hopefully enough.

At times it is going to be difficult and you're going to want to give up, but never, never give up! Persevere through, learn from your mistakes and try again. I promise you will find success. There is a lot of wisdom in the lyrics below, read them and remember them.

"We'll be singing
When we're winning
We'll be singing

I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down

I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down
"
