Your personal life, work, familial and friendly relationships - everything will be at stake when you do not enjoy financial freedom . It's payment reminders all around and you find really hard to straighten up things . It's all a mess. Wouldn't happiness be destroyed if you enjoy little freedom over your finances ?

Yes, certainly, financial freedom is the need of the present day! Without it all modern methods of living has no or least utility. It is we, to plan, prepare and achieve this valuable asset that few people only have cherished an achieved for ages. Since tehnology has made a lot of advancements, financial freedom I think is more achievable on the part of a common person, if there is real desire for it. Amongst all worldly freedoms, I think 'Financial Freedom' is the best one that can never be compared with any other type of freedom and it requires the base of open-mindedness from all. Thanks.

For the most part we have control over our finances. We can control how many hours we work to make so much money. We can decide not to use credit cards and spend more money than we have to pay out. We can turn that extra light off so that our bills will go down. We can buy things that we need on sale to keep our finances down. We can refinance our homes for a better rate. We can save money if we choose for later in life. We may not have any control over prices going up but we can make good choices so that we can afford the things we want.

I have a good friend who is poor and she has a happy life, she had good friends, her happiness is not destroyed. I think you have to learn who to juggle what is on your plate, money problems, friends and family obligations.

Yes, when one has financial freedom, one can do what one wants. Does that equate to happiness? I am not sure. In my opinion, one can be happy as long as one is not financially burdened, it need not be financial freedom. What is important is one must be healthy in the mind.

You are equating fianacial success with happiness. You can be happy first and that can result in increased financial success. Happiness is not destroyed by outside forces such as fianacial disasters. That is unless you make that choice. Happiness is an inside feeling which you can create for yourself beyond what the outside world brings to your life. Give up your inner pains and fears, let them go, and happiness comes to you.
