If you ask a random person how much money they would need to live their ideal life they’ll probably give you a huge number without even thinking about it.
You see, I believed for years that in order to be happy and live life on my own terms I needed to have dozens of millions sitting in my bank account.
After talking to truly wise people (way smarter than I’ll ever be) I realized that this was a big lie I was telling myself, an excuse to postpone my plans. If you first design your ideal lifestyle and then do the math you’ll be amazed by how little you actually need to live a happy life.
Enough fancy cars, expensive watches, designer clothes, modern apartment complexes. Why not go and live in a beautiful coastal town with great people and delicious food? Why not optimize for those things that truly matter to you?
Don’t take anything I share too seriously. I’m just a young creator figuring things out. Everything I share is a reminder to myself.
