How to achieve financial freedom

It will always be a sad fact of life that financial freedom is never given the attention it deserves.

“So you want to achieve financial freedom, do you?”. How everyone laughs.

There are no classes at school on financial freedom – and there’s a very good reason for that. School teachers haven’t achieved financial freedom themselves so how the heck are they going to teach you how to achieve it. The same can be said of university professors, all your close friends, your work colleagues and of course your nearest and dearest.

Even your IFA cannot show you how to achieve financial freedom.

So what are you going to do?

Five things you need to know if you want to achieve financial freedom

If you want to achieve financial freedom it is clear you need to have a plan. Here’s five essential things the financial freedom seeker needs to know:

1. Surround yourself at least twice a month with people who have achieved financial freedom or are well on their way to achieving financial freedom. Their thinking will rub off on you and that is essential when you are normally surrounded by people who are more broke than you are.

2. Buy books, DVDs and go to seminars held by people who are genuinely rich themselves (good ones are few and far between but you will find them if you are persistent).

3. To achieve financial freedom you will need to change your thinking and some of the beliefs that have been ground in over the years. Your ‘conditioning’ and mindset must change because if you keep doing what you have always done you will simply keep getting what you have always got.

4. Financial freedom comes from “owning something”. Rich people own things, poor people don’t. I’m not talking about owning worthless consumer junk here, the sort of stuff that most people waste their money on every month. I’m talking about owning a business (no matter how small) or owning a property.

5. Financial freedom is also closely connected with your spending habits. Despite what everyone thinks, rich people don’t waste their money – whereas poor people are totally taken in by the idea you are only rich if you are spending. When you are taking your first few steps on the journey to financial freedom it is vital you understand the difference between “becoming wealthy” versus trying to “look wealthy”.


  • At £100 to double-you’re not really competing with large scale seasoned professionals.

    Once you go down the doubling numbers you begin to compete in effect with institutions and or Goverment policy etc(as that kind of continual doubling becomes an Intrest to the other 7 billion people and stated Goverment)

    As a result-after a handful of these ‘doubling’ moves…the ability and time and competing positions from other investors and said governments etc just make the ability a compounded hardness.

    Hopefully as we become more sophisticated we can enjoy these posts but realise they are like any other headline….attention seeking!

    • I’m afraid that none of that is even remotely true, Gerry. Remember, DYWTAM was written by not one, but two, multi-millionaires using these very techniques. I suspect that you’ve been ripped off in the past by the many “get rich quick schemes” that are out there. That’s a real shame. Having done all of the fourteen levels myself, (and I watch others do the same every week), I feel highly qualified to disagree with every single one of your comments. If you’re not rich now then you have to change your thinking if you want to make serious money. Here’s the thing; “If you keep doing what you’ve always done – you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got”. Stop and think about that for a minute. I don’t know if you live in a two million pound house but if you don’t, here you are telling someone who does that this won’t work. Really? The DYWTAM Programme is a genuine no-nonsense guide on how to become a millionaire – and absolutely anyone can do it.

  • Barry, is it only 10 issues of Double your way to a Million? A friend of mine who is interested wants to know, thanks.

  • hi barry i am interested in your horse racing course and your recommendation of using isiris,i understand kevin booth has resigned from isiris do you still recommend we use this company still thank you,and also i notice on your websitethat it is still dated 2017 .

    • Good question. I have not used the Isiris service recently. I had a brilliant 11 year run but eventually I got closed down by all the bookmakers. I guess that’s a real sign of success but it was fun to do and I actually miss it. I did not know that Kevin had actually retired but I understand that the results this year have been extremely good. Maybe regular readers who still use Isiris can update me on that one and let me know how they are doing.
