Why your financially secure job may not bring you financial freedom

Mind KEY / Career  / Why your financially secure job may not bring you financial freedom
Financial freedom does not always come from the simple idea of money
There comes a moment in life when people realize that the old saying is true—money doesn’t grow on trees. Depending on money to give you safety and freedom is not a sustainable mindset to achieve your happiness. Art by Kerstin Zettmar

Why your financially secure job may not bring you financial freedom

By Wendy Watson-Hallowell

How many of us have gone down a career path we didn’t care about, stayed in a job we hated, or worked for someone where we could not be ourselves with the idea it helped us to stay safe and somewhat free? Happiness and financial freedom are a tricky combination. I have compromised many of my own dreams and personal values to make more money, and to ensure more money would come. However, I was always driven by a subtle fear of not having enough money, and felt like I was constantly jeopardizing my safety and freedom.

Many of us have given up on our passion, pleasure, and self-respect in the ongoing struggle to make the almighty dollar. We feel we have to pay a price to have the money required for safety and freedom. What if there is another way to look at the situation?

Transforming beliefs to achieve financial freedom–Personally and professionally

Growing up with parents who were children of the 1920’s depression era taught me that money didn’t grow on trees, was hard to come by, and took incredibly hard work to attain. It could be taken away in the blink of an eye, and only a few lucky ones ever ‘made’ it financially. I learned that money was touted as the source of our safety and freedom and I had better figure out how to make some and save some if I wanted to be safe and free.

What if our belief that money equals our safety and freedom isn’t true? I’ve learned that the energy of money is the same as the energy of our unique authentic expression. When I’m doing what I love, things are easy, I’m in the flow and I feel good and money comes easily.

What if our safety and freedom come from our ability to choose what feels best for us, moment to moment? CONTINUE READING
