A subject titled “ financial freedom for young adults” is never seen in the high curriculum, unfortunately, and it is far away from how to manage their money and stay out of debt.
Before earning, we all know much about how to save money.
Financial management is one of the crucial jobs for young adults but if you can do this, definitely it will give you financial freedom at a very early age.
In this growing inflation and unstable economic conditions, financial management is vital for everyone.
What we have seen in the past couple of years can not be forgotten and we all learned a lot about savings, reserves, and emergency funds.
August month we celebrate International Youth Day so today our duty is to educate young adults about financial freedom.
1. Greater Savings Than Spends
Your saving must be higher than your spending and you should always aim to increase your income and savings because the more the savings, the greater the freedom! so start saving early to retire early!
Your target is to save more and spend wisely and avoid unwanted spending.
How you invest your savings is as vital as saving money itself and buying the right income-generating instruments or property and appreciating assets is crucial to have a steady passive income.
Prudent investing means you must know the future scope of your investment and how it will grow in a long-term perspective.
You can invest in shares, bonds, debentures, mutual funds, and other marketable security but for this first, you educate yourself.
3. Financial Discipline
Financial discipline is the process of setting specific monetary goals and periodically measuring performance against set goals.
Financial discipline enables you to utilize your money efficiently and spend it only when necessary.
Financial discipline is a step toward financial freedom and making your life secure and leisurely.
While it is essential to cut costs, do to forget to enjoy the journey toward financial freedom, not just the destination.
4. Build Passive Income Resources
You must develop additional income resources so that you can save more money and achieve financial freedom.
Now the time has been changed and the young generation quickly moving towards freelancing and entrepreneurship to enjoy the life in best possible ways and achieve financial freedom in the future.
People are developing multiple income resources and making their life financially sound.
5. Guard Your Health
An old saying but still relevant, Health is wealth and we all have to be very much serious about a healthy life.
You need a healthy life to work hard to achieve your goals and enjoy every moment of life.
Spend time for your better health and do some morning Yoga, Meditation, and exercise to keep yourself fit and active.
Your routine practices will give your motivation, happiness, and cheerful life.
6. Avoid The Social Media Hoax
Social media and influencers showoff off their luxurious life which can raise the question of what you are doing wrong with your life.
Your analysis, understanding, and experiences come first, and You must know yourself and try not to get tricked by these facades.
Social media influencers are renting houses and vehicles to showcase luxury lifestyles, you must be careful about fake shows off.
Educate yourself, be committed to your goal and do not follow them, and use your money wisely.
7. Learn About Taxes
You must learn about taxes through online available materials, expert consultation, and acquiring knowledge through your own research.
You must know major deductions so that your hard money can be saved.
Your knowledge about taxes will give you a better insight to design your budget.
There are many tools and programmed software that can make your tax filing process incredibly streamlined and painless.
8. Keep Your Credit Score High
As a young adult be serious about your credit score because it counts much for applying for credit cards, auto loans, home loans, and other short-term loans.
A low credit score affects your creditworthiness and you have a lower chance get approval for any loan.
Pay your debts on time, avoid taking a load just on buying smartphones and build a healthy credit score high that can help you with any financial needs.
9. Start An Emergency Fund
Emergency funds count much in our lives and we have seen in the past couple of years how the world became stopped and we all stay in our homes at that time we all realized the importance of emergency funds.
You must prepare for a rainy day and start transferring the possible amount of money to your emergency fund.
As we all know, we must have saved 6 months’ worth of income to fight any financial crisis.
10. Negotiate Salaries
Mostly when peoples think of ways to save more money they have only two options one is to increase their salary and minimize their monthly expenses.
The first option is often tough but the second option can be possible when you are switching jobs and negotiating with employers.
Salaries negotiation can be very serious because this is the only situation where you can increase your earnings and become financially sound.
When you are going to change your company and join a new company strategically work on salary negotiation so that your earnings could improve and more savings are possible.
International Youth Day
12 August is international youth day so today my advice to young adults is to be serious and earn to manage your funds and acquire knowledge for self-betterment and growth.
Enhance your digital skills, build your passive income resources, self-affirmation, Visualization, and commitment towards your goals.
We all crave financial freedom, the freedom to spend time as we wish, and to do things we loved!
While there can be different paths to financial freedom, the basic mantra of Financial Independence is to retire early and remain the same.
Earn more, spend less, invest the surplus, and build an endless passive source of income so that you do need not to work a job just to earn money!
Learn about taxes, avoid social media hoaxes and know yourself in better ways.
Acquire skills, spend time to make yourself fit and healthy, and do your job in the best possible ways.
You must have clarity about your investment plans and never leave any passive income opportunity.
Learn much about tax experts, and government regulations like assumptions and deductions.
