In my course of life, I witness one funny phenomenon:
class striving for financial freedom and condemn the rich that they are lavish n
not frugal and that is incorrect. Imagine even stepping into a condo can be a
crime because later u may be attracted to buy and can never achieve FF.
Ultra hi net worth people looking at the middle class saving every
single cents n yet still struggle in life. UHNW strive for more business success
to earn more money (not to be lavish) but to have self-fulfillment in “earning”!
Sometimes I really wondered if both belongs to the same mindset
category, just wear different clothings.
The one that beats both
category is those who truly know themselves and what they really want in life
and strive towards it. In the process creates value for people around them.
His GCTO: "I 67 still working. You 60 want to retire?"
Uncle8888: "The difference is I am sick man and not much time left!" :-) Giving his GCTO a politically correct answer. LOL!
Actually, an honest answer to his GCTO should be. "How can you retire? Once you retired you won't be surrounded by many Yes Men supporting whatever you said!" LOL!
I am 60+ yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has retired @ 60 on 30 Sep 2016.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 and now becoming full-time retail investor. So I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I have two sons and one daughter; two working adult children and the youngest son is currently in his 1st year SUTD.
I am currently executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038
