Take a moment to think about the things you hate doing in your life.
What are they?
Why do you do them?
The things we hate doing are usually the ones we do only for their money.
It feels awful because working for money is going the opposite direction of our quest: to be a child again!
Yes, our aim in life is to become a child again.
Think about what we’re doing when we attend school, get certificated, send resumes, secure a job, save money, invest, save up some more.
We’re amassing a fortune so we don’t have to worry about the money part and just focus on having fun.
What do people do when they retire (assuming they reached financial freedom)?
They play! Do the things they love! They pick up new hobbies, travel and explore new places!
Isn’t that what children do?
Ironic, isn’t it? We use our entire adulthood to get back our childhood.
But who promised you that you’ll reach retirement with enough resources? Who told you you would even have enough time? What if time ran out for you at 32?
I once read on the news that a family saved money throughout their lives for an overseas family trip. The family planned the trip, bought the tickets, and got on the plane.
The plane crashed. None of them made it.
It’s been many years since I read this tragedy, and it still sticks in my head.
You don’t know when time runs out for you.
Be a child today. Do what you love.
Learn to make money as a child.
Don’t die an adult.
We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
