Amazing things you can do if you’re Financially Free

To become financially independent requires a level of focus and determination over many years. It can mean that you are not spending as much on certain things as perhaps you would otherwise. You might begin to ask yourself is this worth the effort, should I just live in the moment? Whether this is already a goal of yours and you need a motivational boost, or perhaps you’re thinking about going on this journey, we thought we would help inspire you by sharing with you some of the amazing things that you can do if you were financially free.

  1. Stop working or work less– the biggest benefit of being financially free is not being tied to a 9 to 5 job and being part of the rat race. You now have the freedom to choose how you spend your time. Whereas previously you may have worked because you needed the income, now you can work on your own terms. This may mean working part time, it may mean not working at all or perhaps even changing jobs to something that you would enjoy a lot more.
  2. Travel the world / plan your adventure– the world has so much to offer, whether it’s enjoying breath taking landscapes, enjoying different cultures or going on adventures that you will never forget. We asked our team at Sprive, what their dream adventure would look like and here are some of their top picks.
  • Visit Antarctica
  • Go to 5 different volcanoes across the world
  • Climb Mount Everest
  • Bungee jump in every continent
  • Trek through the Sagano Bamboo Forest in Japan
  • Go on a 3 month safari trip
  • Move to a foreign country for a year
  • Swim with dolphins
  • Scuba dive
  1. Look after your wellbeing– you have worked hard to get to this financial position, whether it is working long hours to earn your income or the days spent researching which investments to make. Now is the time to look after both your mental and physical well-being. The immediate benefit, is not having to worry about money and the stress relief that comes with it. You can spend more time relaxing and keep your body active by doing activities you enjoy.
  2. Volunteer work– often many people look back and contemplate whether they made a real difference in the world. Have you done anything to materially change someone’s life for the better? Being in a financially strong position will give you the ability to donate some money to charity. You can even use your time and skills to help a charity and make a real impact to a cause you believe in.
  3. Spend time on your hobbies– are there activities that you really enjoy doing but never really had the time? Whether it’s playing golf, squash, creating music, wine tasting or cooking, doing something you enjoy as much as you want is the dream. Who wouldn’t want to spend time doing the things they love? You can also try new hobbies that you would have never otherwise have tried. Again, we asked the team at Sprive, what new hobbies they would try and here are some of their thoughts.
  • Martial arts – try to get a black belt
  • Photography – being able to take amazing pictures
  • Brew beer – love to make beer that tastes good
  • Play golf – be good at it for once
  • Antique collecting – maybe I could find that one-of-a-kind
  • Painting – create my own art work
  • Learn to dance – maybe a bit of Salsa or the Tango
  1. Relationships– spending more time with the people you care about most in the world. This may be family members or friends who you were never able to spend as much time with as you would like. With you having more control of your time, you can spend it making new friends or even reconnect with old friends who you have lost touch with.
  2. Coach others– one way you can give back is by mentoring others on how you’ve been able to achieve financial freedom. It can be very rewarding to provide your experience to make others successful too.
  3. Grow you money– you’ve reached financial freedom, but why stop there? You can continue to spend your time to grow your wealth and further improve your lifestyle.
