YOUR ROAD MAP TO
ACHIEVING FINANCIAL FREEDOM
AND LIVING YOUR DREAMS
Financial freedom is not defined by your net worth or your social status. It does not matter how much you earn – what matters is how much you can save and invest wisely. The secret to financial freedom is learning the basic concepts of planning well and adopting the right attitude. But how does one achieve this?
Written by a common man for the common man, this book will help you lead a financially independent and conscious life.
Everyone around us is trapped in a mindless rat race. If you’ve resolved to take control of your finances and construct a personal finance plan, From the Rat Race to Financial Freedom is a good starting point.
It is the sole purpose of existence and it’s what drives us in all that we pursue, achievements, wealth, professional or business success, love, relationships, a comfort-filled home, a happy family, or even in relatively smaller things such as a vacation, shopping, movie or a dinner outing. So, while we may think we want to be rich, powerful, successful, popular, or whatever, all that we actually want is to be happy. Always happy.
Yet happiness proves both transient and elusive.
That's because we seek it in the wrong places and pursue it in the wrong things. We seek it in the external world around us, in attainments, money, power, material things, people . . . .
In reality, happiness lies within each one of us. It is our true nature. We simply have to uncover it by getting rid of all the wrong notions and false assumptions about ourselves that we hold unexamined.
This book will help you do just that — discover your inner self and unlock the eternal happiness that lies within you. In doing so, it will transform your life forever.
The book also shows you how to make your own destiny by mastering your thoughts. It is packed with inspiration, practical steps and innovative Destiny Cards to help you take charge of your thinking.
