Welcome to the Financial Independence UK podcast! Join your hosts Tom and Alex as they talk about the motivation and discipline required on your FI journey.
Initial motivation can make starting any new venture seem easy, the enthusiasm can enable you to throw yourself into a new project. But how long does it last? It is the discipline that keeps you on the right path. Especially when this sort of idea goes against what everyone else appears to be doing.
The learning curve is steep, there is a plethora of information out there, it can be hard to filter out the less useful information. Our reading list can help with this, we did the research, so you don’t have to: https://fiuk.org/reading/
What can keep you optimistic?
1) Having more than one method of earning money, the choice, the different challenges and other social circles can help keep you motivated.
2) One page financial plan for you to read back to help keep you on the right path when life gets in the way and it will.
3) Celebrate the smaller milestone. Hit a figure on the way to your FI number? Celebrate it. Made a positive change in your life, celebrate it. Worked smarter to get promoted or new idea becoming profitable, celebrate it!
