Today we observe Philippine independence day. On June 12, 1898, the Philippine declaration of independence happened at the ancestral home of General Emilio Aguinaldo in Kawit, Cavite. I would like to greet all fellow Filipinos a happy and meaningful Independence Day!
How about our “Financial Independence”?
Much the same way as a declaration of independence was done in Cavite more than 100 years ago, I believe that we should also declare and proclaim to the world our goal of achieving financial independence. I would say that this is a defining moment in our quest for financial freedom. Without the declaration, we are not really clear on what our objectives are. After we declare it, the more we can focus on it.
This again is another insight from watching “The Secret” as mentioned in my previous post about achieving financial freedom. Following the Law of Attraction, declare and radiate to the world what you really, truly want, and the world will give it to you (assuming you are willing to pay the price to achieve this). And yes, it is possible…
My declaration of financial independence and financial freedom
“I declare that I shall be financially independent by building at least Php60,000 in monthly passive income before my 40th birthday through multiple streams of passive income from foreclosure investing, internet marketing, and other passive income opportunities.”
I really can’t remember when I started to declare this to myself and to the whole world. I guess what is really important is that I made the declaration, and doing so has left me no choice but to achieve it!
Now it’s your turn
How about you, have you declared your financial independence? I invite you to share them here for all the world to see through the comments section below. Wouldn’t it be nice to come back here someday to make a follow up comment saying “I did it, I am now financially independent…”
Happy Financial Independence Day!
To our financial freedom!
