Fuel your wealth-being journey with FIRE… but don’t stop there

Being financially independent means being able to enjoy your desired lifestyle without having to work to support that lifestyle. The FIRE movement – or Financial Independence, Retire Early – is a paradigm shift that challenges the conventional retirement timeline. The FIRE movement encourages individuals to save aggressively, invest wisely, and reduce expenses to attain financial independence and have the option to retire early. While this is a good practice, at Amida, we encourage our clients to live their life path more broadly, shift their relationship with money, and reimagine traditional approaches to financial well-being. Read more about Our Guidance.


We appreciate the tangible way that The Fioneers suggest five steps to financial independence. With a quick look at the descriptions below, it’s likely you will have a good sense of  where you are

  1. Debt Freedom: The foundation of financial independence is breaking free from debt. Whether it’s student loans, credit cards, or other financial burdens, eliminating debt sets the stage for building true wealth and financial security. 
  2. ‘F You’ Money: This level empowers you with the financial stability to say ‘F You’ to situations that compromise your values or well-being. It’s about gaining control and confidence in making life choices aligned with your principles. 
  3. Coast Financial Independence: What you’ve already saved will grow to provide you with a comfortable traditional retirement. 
  4. Semi-Retirement: The journey continues with semi-retirement, offering a flexible work-life balance that allows you to pursue passions and interests without being tied to a traditional 9-to-5 job. It’s about crafting a life that aligns with your values and desires. 
  5. Full Financial Independence: The pinnacle of the FIRE movement, financial independence, grants you the ability to retire early and live life on your terms. It is the point at which your assets produce enough sustainable income to cover your living expenses. 


How much is enough? And what if financial independence is not limited to only your wealth or income? Could financial independence be about your relationship with money? About releasing the power money has to determine your path in life?  


As we navigate this journey towards financial freedom together, it’s essential to address limiting beliefs about oneself, others, and the world that may impede your progress. Let’s take a sample of some wealth-related beliefs our clients have struggled with.  


On a scale of 0 to 10, how true do each of these statements feel to you? 

  • Wanting to make more money is selfish. 
  • I’m not talented enough to make $____ a year. 
  • People from my background don’t make the kind of money I dream of making. 
  • In order to make ___________ a year, I’d have to work so much that I wouldn’t have time for anything else. 
  • I’ve never been good with money, and I never will be. 
  • It’s not spiritual to make a lot of money. 
  • If I earn more than my mom/dad/husband/wife, it will put a strain on our relationship. 


Did you notice that even though you disagree with a particular belief, it resonated with you emotionally? If that happened, that’s an indication that the belief is your emotional truth. 


If your answers were anything other than 0, you believe the statements to some extent. And if you believe them, they are likely to have a detrimental effect on your well-being potential. Read about 5 Habits That Will Make You Feel More Confident.
