Would you like to have more money in your life? And would you like to have more freedom in your life?
The answer to these questions is probably YES. Of course, most people dream of basically, living the magical life of their dreams. But in order to have a lot of money, you have to work hard, right?
”85% of the people don’t feel happy or fulfilled at their jobs.”2017 Gallup Poll
They don’t look forward waking up, knowing that when they wake up, they have to go to work again. Every single day. Again and again.
”If you have no vision of yourself in the future, then you have nothing to live for.”Les Brown
On our way to financial freedom, we came to know many things are actually different from the things we learned at school, from our parents, our family and friends.
Most of the times, we heard from the people around us, that we have to work hard to earn a lot of money and succeed in life. Work hard, play hard, have you heard the phrase before?
What are some of the challenges you face today? And did you ever feel, like you were meant for something more?
We actually like to say something else, namely:
Work Smart, Play Hard.
And maybe even better: Work Smarter, Play Harder. How does that sound? Quite strange right? Even a bit unrealistic, maybe?
In the old days, going to school, study hard, find a good job and get a good salary was basically the key. That what our parents told us usually.
However, if we study successful people like Warren Buffet, Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos. It’s quite obvious they own a certain knowledge or skillset causing them to be so successful.
And if we knew how to become a millionaire or even a billionaire, we already would have been there, right? Yes or no?
”If you don’t find a way to earn money while you sleep, you will work until you die.”Warren Buffet
This means, that making money can be learned. People like Warren Buffet mastered certain skillsets to become wealthy. They actually like to call it financial intelligence. But by definition, skillsets can be learned. Yes or no?
We from Celebrate Forex, like to share with you one of the most beautiful, attractive and easy vehicles to this type of (financial) success. But before we dive deeper into what we exactly do, we would like to explain some more details.
”Life is more meaningful when you are always looking to grow and working toward a goal.”Les Brown
Because what’s the reason that you’re still reading this. What’s actually one of the most important things in life? Of course, everybody likes to be happy and fulfilled. But what do we need also in life?
Think of the time you were a baby and used to crawl over the floor. At some point, you decided you wanted to walk. So you started trying, felt many times. But you never gave up, and ultimately you could walk! Your were free!
Go back to the time you were young and wanted to cycle. Could you cycle already the very first time? No! But remember how proud your parents were when you could? And how did you feel? Great, right!? Why? Because you were free!
When we learned to swim, that gave us the freedom to swim when and wherever we want. During our holidays, we can swim in lakes, in the sea and have some water fun. Do you start getting the point?
Last one: the moment you graduated for your driver license! The moment that you were able to drive anywhere you want, on your own. How did that feel? Quite free right? Well, we think we made the point clear by now, but one of the most important values in our lives as humans beings is actually…
But how free are we actually? Do we have to work a 9 to 5 job? Do we have to pay for our mortgage? For our bills?
Did you know that 1 out of 5 families can’t buy a new fridge when the old one breaks down? Did you know that the average family in the USA doesn’t have more than $1000 in their bank account?
How free are we really? And what does freedom means to you?
For us, freedom means being able to do the things you want to do, whenever you want to do, wherever you want to do, with whoever you want to do.
The Cashflow Quadrant
Did you actually know that 95% of the people on this planet, only make 5% of the entire financial market?
And did you know, that just 5% of the people on this planet, make 95% of the financial market in this world?
Just think about that for a second. On which side would you like to be?
60% percent of the people on this planet are working for someone.
They have a job.
– Work Hard, Play Soft.
35% percent of the people are self-employed.
They own/create a job.
– Work Harder, Play Softer.
Only 4% of the people are business owners.
They have a system working for them, that brings in money while they sleep.
– Work Smart, Play Hard.
And only 1% of the people have the investor mindset.
The have their money working for them, it grows automatically.
– Work Smarter, Play Harder
Employees and self-employed people are changing their time for money. But they don’t make money while they sleep.
Business owners and investors us their money to generate more money. With that money, they can buy back their (future) time.
Just think about that for a while. Very easy to say that you should be on the side of the business owner or investor, right? But how?
Nowadays, it’s not super hard to become rich. Compared to the old days, the internet offers us endless opportunities.
In order to achieve financial freedom, we have to earn money passively. Basically, without even have to work for it. Once we automated a system, the system will bring in money for us. But how do we do that? And didn’t we speak before about growing our money automatically? Almost automagically.

The 5 Pillars of Financial Freedom
We like to state there are 5 basic pillars to establish financial freedom:
When you personally are an skilled artist, expert, specialist or authority in a certain field, you can make pretty good money out of that.
Having a system working for you, that brings in money while you sleep.
- Trading & Investing
Letting your money work for you.
Buy and rent out real estate.
Specialize in assets like affiliate marketing, dropshipping and private labeling.
However, none of above will work if you don’t have a fundament of well established mindset and psychology.
Assets vs. liabilities
Create more assets and less liabilities, is what smart people like to say. Assets put money in your pocket, liabilities take money from your pocket. A job is an asset, a business is an asset, a money making system is an asset. On the other hand, your house and car are primarily liablities. Your spouse? That depends ;).
