Let me tell you a story. 🥃
This is my lola, Lucina Pangilinan. She's 91.
This is one big reason why I work hard for generational wealth.
Growing up, I didn't realize how hard my lola's (grandmothers) life was. A little while ago it compounded when she got Alzheimer's Disease.
My dad found out she had shoddy care in the Philippines. She was brought back and lived with my parents. Every morning she would wake up very early and my dad would take care of her. Then go to work for 8 hours+ and THEN still take care of her with very little sleep because he wants her to be around family on these late stages of life.
For the longest time - he's received nearly ZERO help from anyone else.
Because of residual/passive/royalties i'm able to come back and spend a month to see my lola. I have no idea when she may end up with the Lord.
I don't have to ask a boss that I need to ask permission to tell me when I can spend time.
Never had a job, never wanted one. No time freedom.
Those who say money doesn't matter is missing a big chunk of reality. What happens if a disaster happens or you need to take time to be elsewhere?
What's the point of 6/7-Figures and nice things if you cant get to the point where you can walk away if you need to care of your loved ones?
Residual/Passive/Royalties gives you TIME and MONEY. Work hard now and you get the option later to do whatever you want to do.
Here's to the entrepreneurs who wants to leave a legacy. I feel you, it's not just for big houses or exotic cars. It's the ability to spend life on your own terms.
The below average mindset fight over small materal things. Don't be like that.
Fight for a life where money is the LAST priority.
