“Financing your passions – we will be speaking about retiring too early.
Retirement – all it means is leaving your job when it should be a point in your life that you are relieved of your job and now you can follow your passion – your purpose. You finally get the opportunity to live that purpose, the one you had decades ago before a job got in the way.

To defend it, you might say that you needed that job. After all, you went to college so you could get a better job and make more money. That’s when you got off-track.
You thought that the job, the money, and the stuff you bought defined who you are. After all, that’s how others judged you by having things like a new car, the nice clothes, the Rolex, and the big house. Then, you got married and had kids and now had to buy stuff for them as well as yourself. Worn down from it all, you may have even used this as an excuse to buy yourself more things. Buying stuff became a way of rewarding yourself for the little time you had left. The consumption addiction continued to run your life.
Now that you finally get to live your passion, how do you go about financing it?
That’s easy, you sell all the stuff you have accumulated. Get rid of it all. Keep a little bit of furniture and a bed for yourself, but most of the other stuff can go. But wait, some of it’s not even paid for yet! Your priority now is to find your own way out from under that burden so your life can begin.
Some people have a lot of money, but no passion … no purpose. These people wake up each day and count their money. They do this by making sure they didn’t lose any overnight, or that someone didn’t steal any of it, or to see if their investments went up or down. They hope to have enough money for when they get sick someday. After all, they’ll need all that money for their care. These people have money, but no purpose. They are already insolvent because everything they are focused on lacks passion. They are not living, they are existing.
If you live to count your money instead of your worth to the world, you have already gone spiritually bankrupt.
To avoid this you must find your passion, which contains your purpose and a way of financing that, free from the former trappings in your life.”
How It Works: When are you going to get around to living the life you intended before you got here? The life that contained all those great ideas and passions. So how do you get around to financing your purpose? Remove the obstacles, the distractions, that stand in your way. Go back to living as you did, or would have, in those old college days when you were in your prime. That’s when what you were doing and learning was more important than what you had. Lighten up and return to that freedom. After you do this nothing can stand in the way of your purpose. However, beware of how others will judge you. That’s what got you off-track in the first place. ~Linda Deir
