Financial freedom isn’t a matter of sprinting to the finish line at the end of the race. It’s more of a long, methodical strategy consisting of good habits, discipline, and determination. It takes years and years of consistent saving, investing, and oftentimes sacrifice.
Just as you can’t expect to go from your couch to completing a marathon the next day. You can’t expect to go from a modest savings account to a fully funded retirement portfolio within a year, 5 years, or even longer.
So stick to your training regimen, and if you don’t have one make sure you reach out to a professional who can help you develop one. After all, slow and steady wins the race.
