These three things normally pops up on our mind when we hear the word retirement: vacation trips, the liberty from working, and old age. The very first two are just sensible. Long getaways and pursuing the things that they like to do are what retirees usually do if they've saved more than enough. It is different when someone retires because of old age. Whenever a person retires old, they're just too old to enjoy anything. They were deprived of making the most of life since they were young and it's too late for them to do so because they are old. It is really sad that they were not able to do what's necessary to alter that and retire early in life considering they had all the opportunity.
This may happen to you and that is the reality. You have better question what your life priorities are if you are 40 and has not done anything to secure your future. The main problem is, people get scared to venture out of their safety bubble. The uncertainty these adjustments could bring are troubling for many. People would rather work in a measly compensated job and count on their 401k or Roth IRA in their retirement which isn't a good idea in my opinion.
It is really not difficult to understand that if you start saving young, the better things will be for you later in life. Explore and try different investment options to increase your income. Once you have the money, the most awful thing that you can do is to leave it rotting and let it sit there in the bank. A thousand dollars in 10 years will definitely have a lot less value compared to a thousand dollars today. Invest it into something and let your money do the job for you rather than the other way around.
I am a real estate investor by trade. In my experience, real estate and income properties are the most effective form of investment rather than buying bonds and shares or making an investment to gold and silver. I pushed myself to determine the system when I started as a real estate agent. The instant I got hold of a great deal of cash from saving, I started to learn how to invest and buy properties for flipping or leasing. The process has given me a continuous cash flow and revenue stream. I can only wish to have began earlier. Retiring by 40 or even younger sounds really nice.
I'm happy with what I have now. Saving up early and investing it is definitely the key to retiring early. As well as living frugally. If you're unable to purchase something with hard cash, avoid the use of credit cards to buy it. You really don't need a new bag or pair of shoes every month. Every small thing counts when saving. From little things such as making use of discount coupons for groceries, to big things like not shopping for a brand new car when your old car is still functioning good. All of these are the fundamentals of saving money to retire early. In order to retire early, you need to be smart with every single financial move you'll make!
