Mostly, the advice we all receive is to get a job and save up.
Do you have a specific plan directed towards personal freedom and service?
Here is one.
With your job, live as frugally as possible, and save everything up toward:
1) a tiny house
2) land to put it on
3) training to build earthships
4) land to put it on
With this kind of goal, you can create your first step towards freedom, not ever having a mortgage.
Learning to live without stuff, with just the essentials you need, allows you an amazing amount of freedom.
You can live in the city, near the city, in the country.
Various laws will guide your choices.
In order to make it even better, cultivate skilled people to join you, or cultivate people who are willing to learn skills of self-sufficiency as you are learning them.
They can join you and help build the tiny houses and earthships and help pay for the land.
Learn about Intentional Communities as a possibility.
In these ways you can take conscious, active steps towards your freedom and not be tied to a job and heavy expenses for all the years of your life.
This is a better dream than the one promoted by the media as the “American Dream” of lots of stuff.
This is a dream which no economic structure can take away from you.
This is a dream which will allow you the time to discover your true gifts and allow you to share them.
