As a thinker and an experienced procrastinator, I end up thinking a lot about a lot of things. The downside, of course, is that I tend to spend more time thinking than I should and less time doing. One day I’d like to write a book, so instead of talking about it, I’m getting on with it.
So I have started writing these articles on topics that I have first-hand experience of, have worked for me and that I think are worthwhile sharing. I have so many ideas and plan to get them out of my head and onto this blog.
The tagline for my blog is Healthy Mind Wealthy Life
For me, a healthy mind is the start and comes from having a positive can-do outlook on life and being motivated to take ownership of your life no matter how it turns out. My experience is that once you acknowledge and own it, then you can start to steer it and achieve your dreams. It took me a while to work this out but my lessons in life are teaching me this.
That’s a good start to a wealthy life, but wait there is more. Wealthy life can mean many things to many people. For me, it means having the freedom to spend your time how you choose and do whatever you want to. In my mind to achieve that wealthy life you need to have a healthy body and financial freedom.
An active lifestyle and love for adventure sports have given me a healthy body, but as you get older the challenge gets bigger. Financial freedom, on the other hand, that’s another story, nowhere near it at this stage but I have a plan and it is working. Had I started sooner I would have been typing this from under a palm tree on my personal island.
So you can look forward to my experiences in finding my path in life and track my progress as I chase FIRE (financial independence to retire early), only just but early never the less. That path is littered with self-reflection, personal growth, motivation, frugal lifestyle, understanding personal finance and investing to grow wealth and other random lifehacks that nobody taught us at school.
