Can Attaining Financial Freedom Make You Happy?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

A lot has been written about true happiness. One of the main keys to unlocking of happiness is the understanding that it arises from inside you.

True, financial freedom is essentially an inside job, alas how does that sit with the many of you who have struggled financially for a long time and feel that the holy grail of financial independence is but a far away goal never to be reached? Not very well I guess, and quite right too.

Let us take a look at what happiness is all about:

First and foremost happiness is about being in alignment with yourself and that means that you understand what makes your heart sing. Your heart sings when you know what you want and make no excuses for your desires. In other words, you are fully congruent with your goals and desires without the burdens of conditioned gilt, feelings of inadequacy and feeling unworthiness.

Happiness knows no judgement

Nobody can tell you what makes you truly happy but you. You alone are the designer and author of your happiness. And here is the first big obstacle: We are conditioned beings and function for the most part on autopilot.

Our conditioning, which derives from centuries of programming basically has us believe that money is not important. After all many of the great saints lived in poverty. Christian religions raised the idea of spirituality over financial freedom to an ideal worth aspring to if you truly wish to become a good and worthy person.

Sadly these old ideas have led to many misunderstandings about the value of financial freedom and your right to achieving financial freedom as a valid goal to a happy life. I cannot stress the point often enough: Happiness has no judgement.

The only person who judges your right to let financial freedom make you happy is you.

What if the old ideas about what makes you happy are incorrect and of no relevance to you today? How would your life be transformed if you were to rid yourself from the shackles of your old conditioning?

It is a known fact that one of the best ways to attain financial freedom comes through happiness. Does it therefore not make sense to let it be okay that making lots of money would make you happy and be happy with that feeling? If you change your mind about what makes you happy once you have financial freedom you can always find something else to make you happy.

This is not pie in the sky talk, but simply applying evolutionary principles in your life. God, the universe, the cosmos, call it what you like wants you do define your own happiness by your own values. Evolutionary law is about changing,experiencing, growing and expanding.

If you truly believe that achieving financial freedom is your path to happiness that is cool and nobody but you can stop you or spoil this idea for you, so, go for it.
