In my opinion, I may and may not enjoy life by having financial freedom, because money don't matter to you, you can buy anything you want, go anywhere you like and the best is eat everything you want, but do you think having financial freedom is enough to fully enjoy our life? Many rich people who already have financial freedom still don't enjoy their life they even more miserable than those less fortunate,and most of them has family problem, they are too busy to have a vacation or even a little bonding with their children, even the teens that already gain financial freedom because of their status in life, most of them don't enjoy their life, I guest money in not the answer to every thing, I think to fully enjoy your life you need financial and TIME freedom and also it is up to you how or in what way you truly enjoy your life, Me I enjoy life by playing online games, having a quality time with my friends, relatives, my girlfriend and with my pet cat, having a vacation, and many more I also enjoy posting discussion and reading some discussion here in mylot, making new friends online,

For my point of view, I rather have financial freedom than none at all. I know everyone experience problems even if we have lots of money or no money at all. The things is, it is lesser the problem with financial freedom than having a lot of problem with no financial.

you have a point, it is true that having a problem without money is more crucial than having a problem with money,

Financial freedom means not to be in debt, not to have mortguages and to have enough money and be self sufficient and not depend on anyone.Money is not bad in itself ,it is our greed that makes life miserable for us. Most rich people whohave lots of money to spare still feel that they don`t have enough since everytime they make more money they raise their lifestyle a notch above. for eg if thay had only one car or house once more money comes in they buy another car or even one more, they go in for another house, they buy more jewellery for their wife, their children want the latest clothes, mobiles, etc and so it goes on and on. the more money theu make the more their wants increase and it becomes endles.In their craze for riches they lose their health, have no time for the family and end up making a mess of their lives. When one has sufficient money one should become contented with what one has and then relax for the rest of their lives. Once the children are settled they should retire and live happily and a healthy life.

In my opinion I will say that 'Yes', I will enjoy my life if I have financial freedom, because with financial freedom at-least I would be stress free. Now a days people like me are stressed about making living of his family, if I have lost job, how I would make my living? This question keeps roaring in the mind. By gaining financial freedom at-least this stress would not be more. Ya, there are many who has financial freedom but there's lack of peace. I think this is natural, more money you have, more you want. But you can live life peacefully if you do something like charity and other things, like Bill Gates. This is up to you.

you do have a point, it is stressful when we don't have enough money for our needs and also it is up to us how will we use our money, helping others with your excess money will really make others happy as you also be touch,

I agree with you. I don't think I would really enjoy life just for financial freedom because sooner or later I will get used to it and get bored with having all the money, being able to spend freely, and then I would look for another thing that can satisfy me.

Hi, Yes,that is what i aim for and that is my goal in life to have financial freedom so i dont have to worry about everything in my life.I always wanted to have savings on my bank for the future but until now still not lucky.I always do my best to find good paying job to meet my needs and to help my family and siblings and to give my kids a good life.Im trying to do my best in everything and do anything i can to have multiple jobs or extra income like what i do here in my lot and some other sites too.I was born poor and we always have problem in money since we are big family and my fathers job is only driver and he is not earning big money on his work.I DIDNT FINISH COLLEGE BECAUSE I CHOSE TO STOP AND JUST FIND MY WORK AND ITS GOOD THAT I CAN FIND GOOD JOB AS WELL BUT STILL NOT ENOUGH FOR A BIG FAMILY AND A SINGLE MOM OF 2KIDS.mY GOAL AND AIM IN LIFE IS TO SAVE AND EARN MONEY HARD SO I CAN SAVE FOR MY FUTURE AND CAN PUT UP A MSALL BUSINESS ON MY INTEREST LIKE PUTTING UP A SMALL BAR OR CAFE AND OR A SMALL SUPERMARKET.sO I WILL KEEP TRYING HARD AS LONG AS I AM STILL YOUNG I WILL DO MY BEST TO EARN AND TO SAVE SO AFTER YEARS AND YEARS FINALLY I CAN HAVE FINANCIAL FREEDOM.

no, i cannot enjoy my life by just gaining financial freedom alone with myself, but if i will share it to all my family and friends, in that case i may say already that I'm enjoying my life gaining financial freedom. I don't want to be hypocrite if i say that i don't need a financial freedom yet it is my goal in life. All the things that we have like money and the success of life are God's entrusted to us we just don't know His purpose, which is, He want us to share to others all the blessings we had.
