Transcriber: Annet Johnson
Reviewer: gaith Takrity Do you ever dream of retirement? What’s your retirement dream? Is it pure bliss and relaxation? Can you almost feel that warm wind? Taste those fruity umbrella drinks? Lounging by the pool, endless games of golf,
walking on the beach? I’ve always loved vacations, haven’t you? So I think we’re really going to love
this constant vacation space in retirement too, right? It actually reminds me of a couple I know. Let’s call them, “Jeff and Jenny.” They’ve dreamt of retirement for years. Jeff had worked at the same company
for over 30 years. He knew everybody. He was the life of the place.
And Jenny, she’d often worked two jobs
so they’d have enough. They finally did. They moved to sunny Florida, of course. But something strange started to happen. Jeff seemed lost, lonely. They started to nip at each other. They started to quarrel. And Jenny, although she was
beginning to make community, really didn’t like to golf. She’d never been that sporty. She missed her long-time book club. She missed her best friends, her kids, her soon-to-be grandchild. What was going on? Had they not done everything right? They’d moved to sunny Florida. They’d worked with
a smart financial advisor. They’d saved enough. I ask you, if this is the dream vision
for retirement – You see it in the adverts. Why is it that so many are
dissatisfied at this age? Why is it that depression
increases by 40%? Why is it [that] substance abuse,
divorce rates are climbing? Why is everyone lonely? And people’s self-worth is low? Surely we can do better than this. Look, I’ve spent many years consulting and coaching and researching
the ideas, tools, and frameworks that best support us
during times of transition, like retirement.
Look, I’m not here to tell you
whether you should or shouldn’t retire, because maybe you should
or maybe you shouldn’t. It is up to you to design and discover. But I do want to share with you
what I know about these life changes, these life quakes, these life disruptors so we don’t end up
in a situation like Jeff and Jenny. Look, we know that transitions
are a regular part of life. They can be trying and triumphant.
They can be predictable and unpredictable because life often
doesn’t follow a straight line. But my research and others’ shows us
that if we bring our intention and attention to them,
we can improve our well-being. And we can improve our well-being
in retirement too. I like to think of it as an ROI,
a return on investment. But this time for our well-being. Think of it as the “ROI”
beyond our bank account, an investment portfolio
in human flourishing, your flourishing in retirement.
Where “R” is where we reframe
our current definition of retirement. “O” is where we optimize
the well-being in retirement. And “I” is where we ignite
our way forward. So let’s “ROI,” Reframe, Optimize,
and Ignite, your retirement. Let’s start with “R”: reframe. Let’s reframe your current
definition of retirement. Look, even the word retirement
sends shivers down my spine. I really don’t like that word much.
And when I look up the word “retire”
in a thesaurus, I see the strangest words: retreat, remove, exit, my personal favorite, “go to bed.” And, although I get it – It is very, very tempting
to go to bed sometimes, it does imply that we are
fading from life when in fact these years can be
some of our best years, some of our most flourishing years. So then, how did it start? Well, historically, we never
abruptly retired. We gently moved from one stage
to another in life. And then rumor has it, this gentleman – I think he looks a bit scary, actually, German Chancellor, Otto Van Bismarck,
in 1889, created this idea, this invention of retirement
when he put in place disability insurance for those over 70. This idea was radical. But other countries followed suit,
making retirement age between 65 and 70. But what’s interesting about
this time period of 1889 was the life expectancy
was less than 44 years. A far cry from our 80′ish years today. So to be clear, this definition
or invention of retirement is over 100 years old and we have almost doubled our lifespan.
So surely, can we not all agree that
we need to reframe, rethink, redesign … our retirement definition? Next, let’s “O” of the ROI, let’s optimize. Let’s optimize our well-being
in retirement. And it’s here we can learn
from some great science and research. Edward Jones asked over 9,000 retirees, “What gives you fulfillment
in retirement?” Their answers: being authentic, spending
time with those they care for, they love, doing interesting things,
things that help them grow, and being generous, giving back. Interestingly, money was
at the bottom of the list. And, look, we know that money can
bring us freedom and flexibility. But research consistently shows us
that above a base level, money is not the secret ingredient
to happiness in life or in retirement. It’s also interesting to examine
the disconnect between what retirees are thinking about – connection, contribution, community, and pre-retirees are thinking about, which is pretty much their bank accounts
and this vacation view of retirement. And when we look at
this vacation view of retirement, we find that over time it becomes the norm and starts to lack the joy it once did. It’s probably why
Berkeley researchers found that we have a sugar rush
of well-being when we first retire and then a year or two later
a fairly sharp decline.
Behavioral economists might call it
hedonic adaptation, where one more umbrella drink, one more golf game just loses its sparkle. We can also look into the world
of positive psychology as we continue to “O”, optimize. We can examine the science of
what makes for a good life, a happy life, a life better than fine. And it goes by the acronym, PERMAV. I like to think of it
as my well-being playbook where “P” is positive emotion,
feeling good, hopeful, inspired, loving. It’s like a micro moment of joy: a good laugh, a good meal. “E” is engagement. Having interests in pursuits that fully
captivate us and take us away: help us grow, our relationships, having loving and authentic relationships
with another, with groups, with communities.
“M” is meaning, that sense of purpose,
something beyond ourselves. “A” is accomplishment, having positive progress in life. And “V” is vitality, investing in our bodies, in our minds,
because they both matter and they work together. Look, these elements collectively
make up our well-being. They matter, they work together, and we have to bring our attention
and intention to them because they can change. So it’s super important
in retirement to focus on these. We can also learn from the
blue zones of the world, those zones where people
fully embrace the PERMAV elements. They live flourishing lives and they live
an extra 10 to 15 years than most of us. The word retirement doesn’t even exist. Take Marie, for example. She’s amazing. She's 101, has her own garden. walks over a mile a day,
volunteers five days a week, and spends a lot of time
with her great friends and her six great grandchildren. She is thriving. She is optimizing her retirement years. Next, “I” of the ROI. Let’s ignite our path forward. Let’s take action. Let’s explore ideas. Let's sneak up on the future.
We know that life is not
a fixed destination but rather a continual design project. There’s not one best option for us. There's many great options
for us in retirement. We also know to break down
our ideas and our actions. We break them down small, so we feel comfortable taking action. We have a conversation, we explore an idea, we learn something new, but in a safe way. So we take some action. We adjust and edit and we take a little more action
as we ignite our way forward. So in closing, I invite you, all of you, to have a conversation
about your retirement. But maybe a little differently this time. It is never too early
and it’s never too late. Let’s create a retirement canvas full of the colors and
textures of well-being and ignited by our boundless
designs and imaginations, like Jeff and Jenny did. They moved back from Florida. They still vacation there sometimes. They bought a smaller condo,
two doors down from their best friend. Jeff decided to go back to work part-time, and he’s taking improv
classes twice a week. And Jenny, she’s enrolled
in doing a Masters in English and still loving her long-time book club.
They are prioritizing their friends, their family, and their new grandchild. They are thriving. So … what about you? Let’s begin to ROI
your retirement chapter. Let’s start with “R”, refrain. What does retirement now mean to you? And what beliefs are
no longer serving you? “O”, optimize. Who and what will you prioritize and how will you use your many,
many strengths and skills? And how does this compare
with those you care for? And “I”, ignite. What is one small step
you could take today to better understand
your “retirement act,” knowing the best can be yet to come. Thank you. (Applause).
>>> > MAT: Hey every person in this video, we'' re conference a pair from Vancouver BC who are intending to retire by age 35. They'' ve adopted an incredibly prudent minimal way of life and for the previous 7 years, they'' ve been able to save over 65%of their yearly earnings.'They ' ve been carefully spending their financial savings and they intend to live off the passion when they do retire. Although very early retirement isn'' t obtainable to everybody, we do believe that what Stephanie and Celestian are doing is actually intriguing because economical way of life options might aid make some financial goals like getting out of debt, as an example, much easier to achieve. We'' re truly excited to share their tale. Let'' s go fulfill up with them. >> > > STEPHANIE: So basically concerning seven and half years ago, we chose to go after very early retirement. We identified a system including lowering our expenditures a lot, so we can obtain our cost savings rate truly high approximately around 60, 65% and just investing that and afterwards just gradually the cash simply kind of collects and currently at this factor we'' re possibly concerning 2-3 years away from having simply sufficient in investments that we wear'' t requirement to function anymore.So at this moment, we'' re nearing completion of the trip we started. [Music Playing]>> > CELESTIAN: What early retired life suggests to us, is being able to retire at a fairly very early age but still have adequate cash to be able to sustain ourselves via our financial investment income without needing to work. We may function if we desire however we wouldn'' t be compelled to function in order to spend for our costs and such. [Songs Playing]>> > STEPHANIE: The biggest things we do is make our huge expenditures rather a little bit lower. We lease a very inexpensive apartment or condo. We wear'' t have a cars and truck. I do all our food preparation from scratch. I do bulk meal prep. Typically, you recognize, we'' re extremely minimalist. We put on'' t really buy points. There are all these groups for a lot of people that simply don'' t exist for us. I suggest, we don'' t have a restaurant spending plan'; we put on ' t have an alcohol budget plan; we put on ' t have an auto budget. Most of those categories are$0
invested in those categories.So, it simply indicates our price of living is extremely, extremely low which allows us to … you understand although we don'' t make that much cash, we are still able to conserve regularly 65%, 70% of our earnings annually, in spite of making just extremely ordinary earnings for our city. [Music Playing] I'' m an assistant at an accounting firm and Cel is a freelance editor. >> > > CELESTIAN: So I primarily do novels, like people self-publish books on the Amazon Kindle Shop and similar markets. Those are the major people that I work with. >> > > STEPHANIE: Typically, our mixed revenue is around $80k/year. We spend regarding $9,500 on traveling, about $9,500 on housing, and regarding $2,500-$3,000 on food annually for both of us. To maintain our costs down for grocery stores, it'' s actually just an issue of food preparation everything from the ground up and not acquiring icy dishes or points like that, yet simply really cooking and baking every little thing from square one. It drives the expense way down. We invest much less than $300 a month on food for both of us, and that'' s no difficulty because we shop at the kind of areas that are very cheap.We buy a huge sack of flour on a monthly basis. That ' s at Costco, a$'6 sack of flour. That ' s all our bread, pizza dough, cooking, you know, muffins … I buy huge sacks of rice. >>> > CELESTIAN: We purchase like cases of soy milk from Costco which'' s a bit less costly too. So there are some points that we purchase wholesale that are less expensive and afterwards we likewise go to a neighborhood market and acquire
quite cheap vegetables.It ' s called Sunrise Market. That'' s component of it. And we try to obtain produce that'' s pretty economical and in season. We take 2 big worldwide holidays a year, usually one in the summer and one in the winter season and after that we do a couple of little journeys to neighborhood areas occasionally. It'' s something that we truly appreciate just going to new countries, new cultures trying brand-new experiences, trying brand-new food. >>> > STEPHANIE: I think every journey we do is actually just inspiration towards layoff because it'' s like a taste of it! We invest near to $10,000 a year on travel. So it'' s not like we do a traveling budget plan. A great deal of it is just we do the very same kind of things when we take a trip that we do in the house. We have a tendency to head to the food store, obtain active ingredients and cook. When we travel, we tend to go to perhaps a local market or the outdoor markets or something obtain ingredients, bring them back and cook or in your home we put on'' t use an automobile, we walk areas and bike places.When we travel, we do the exact same. We take public transportation or bike or we walk locations. I assume there'' s simply a great deal of it is just living the same way of living that we live at home, certainly reduces into the cost of taking a trip a bit. So our transport costs usually would be about $40 a month that would be with recompense, however it can frequently be much less than that, particularly throughout the summertime, where we would certainly just walk and bike a lot more. We really obtained major concerning it, once we understood layoff was even an opportunity which had to do with 7 years ago. So we'' ve been type of taking it a lot more seriously and servicing it and really concentrating on spending a whole lot and obtaining our high savings price and making development simply for around 7 and a half years now. When we initially started, Cel had a little web well worth. He was simply completing up institution. I had concerning seven thousand bucks of debt.I did one year of post-secondary before deciding I didn'' t intend to do anymore of that, however that was gone truly swiftly. We purchase index funds. We simply have extremely simple portfolios through a robo-advisor. When we make money, we transfer money, it'' s handled, and we wear'' t consider it and it just sort of grows behind-the-scenes. Annually, we obtain our tax slips and file our tax obligations. That'' s the level of what we pertain to our investments, however we don'' t truly do any kind of kind methods or psychological stuff to spend less. We just really check out our costs all at once and kind of determine exactly how we feel about that and we'' re either pleased with this amount or we'' re not and if'we ' re not, we would certainly simply >>spend much less. > > CELESTIAN: We attempt to set it up such that saving is much easier than not. Due to the fact that individuals just have so much psychological power therefore much technique they desire to make use of daily, right? One example is that we do bulk meal prep on the weekend breaks and afterwards we just put all of our food in the refrigerator therefore then after work with the week days, instead of eating in restaurants and mosting likely to the dining establishment or obtaining takeout, we can most likely to the fridge and put something right into the microwave.Not only is it the even more inexpensive alternative however it ' s the easiest choice. > > STEPHANIE: I would certainly claim in regards >>to that I assume an additional among things people face occasionally is they make this plan and they say day-to-day i ' m gon na go home from job and I ' m gon na cook a healthy and balanced supper. I suggest maybe for some people that works. For me, it doesn ' t. For me, when I obtain'home from job I ' m kind of weary.'I intend to just consume something. You understand, I don ' t desire to cook a meal. I might be able to maintain a system like that possibly I can manage it for a week, possibly 2 weeks, but after that, I wear'' t assume I might do it every day. So I intend around that to make sure that I have food prepared to go, prepared to simply essentially reheat during the week which makes a big difference. >> > > CELESTIAN: There are drawbacks, but it depends on … they are sort of subjective downsides.It depends on your values or your preferences like your individual preferences. A lot of people would certainly see not consuming alcohol as a significant downside. For us, it'' s not because just we wear'' t wish to drink it. Some people would see that not having a vehicle and not having the flexibility to drive, any place they desire as a big drawback. For us not having a vehicle and not driving, are not drawbacks, that'' s simply how it is. > > STEPHANIE: We have a blog. We'' re not incredibly energetic, however we have a great deal of details on there. It'' s called Incoming Properties. It ' s pretty very easy to discover. We have kind of updates in our lives, areas we travel, type of just how our total assets is going, and after that a little bit concerning spending and self-employment and penny-wise living as a whole, type of several of the important things we do.We want to do things like possibly longer-term traveling. We'' ve spoke about possibly relocating to an island, constructing a cabin and type of doing a bit of a homestead point. There are great deals of various things we'' d like to do or simply having the versatility simply to to relocate to various areas and not have to think “” Well, what about getting a job there or whatnot?”” Simply have the ability to kind of have that freedom to do type of some unconventional way of living options. I think that'' s among the real allures of early retired life is to have that flexibility to primarily live your life the means you desire.
[Songs Playing] As for how our way of life will look when we retire contrasted to exactly how it is now. It really depends. I mean if we make a decision to remain in a city, it would certainly be similar. If we do make a decision to relocate to an island and construct a cabin, there would most likely be some relatively significant distinctions. I think at the core a lot would remain the same. >> > > CELESTIAN: Without a doubt we have no intents after retirement instantly spending a great deal of money on dining establishments, acquiring lots of things on Amazon. It'' s certainly still going to be a prudent way of life blog post retired life. [Music Playing]>> > MAT: If you wish to adhere to Stephanie and Celestian'' s trip in the direction of layoff, you can have a look at their blog which is called Incoming Assets where they share all sort of information concerning their economical lifestyle and traveling adventures.Please share this video clip if you liked it and thanks for seeing.Read More

hi i'm clark and today i'd like to talk to you about money goals and little everyday choices that can help you lead a successful life for those of you that aren't familiar with our channel we normally do videos on how to sail and uh wonderful places that we go to my wife and i sail a 50 year old sailboat we travel all over the world this video is going to be a little different this is a little more personal this is me kind of telling you my story of how i was able to retire young and lead this life i hope it could be inspirational to you even from a very young age i have wanted to live an intentional life i didn't necessarily have the name for it back then but i wanted to live honorably i wanted to live on my own terms i wanted to live in a way that was right but not in a way where i was following the herd not in the way that i was doing what other people wanted me to do lately there seems to be a trend for people to live a little more frugally a little lighter on the world uh you see that with tiny house people my wife used to do that you see that with us cruisers we live out here uh quite lightly um it's and i see that with a group that's referring to their idea as fire f-i-r-e stands for financial independence and retire early it's kind of all the same thing make some money don't spend everything you make don't live paycheck to paycheck so that you can be free and not live a life where you're just accumulating stuff to to impress others or impress yourself the minimalists are kind of doing the same thing though maybe they're not working so hard to retire young but they're still kind of trying to spend less and not accumulate stuff as their personal badge i've been living this way for a very long time if you're contemplating a lifestyle change in this direction i thought it might be helpful to see what happens when you've done this for like 30 years let's start out with my story i grew up in a farming town in northern new york state my dad was a barber my mom was a secretary when i was first born and became a stay-at-home mom later on she got a degree and became a school nurse we didn't have a huge amount of money we had enough though we always had food we always had shelter we never had worries but we just didn't have enough to have that new fancy car and trendy clothes and it just wasn't our thing to try to keep up with the joneses i'm really glad i was raised that way after i finished college i found a job locally in northern new york it wasn't a great job it's not a really industrial or technological part of the world and i do tech and also it was the middle of the recession in the 80s this recession was bad the unemployment numbers were worse than the 2007 recession that well wiki calls the great recession so it was the job i could find i um was a little bored with the job and it didn't pay very well because that job was so boring um i started uh consulting during the day i started meeting with local businesses and uh showing them how to use a pc pcs had just come out i mean they were the first ones uh but right along with the first pcs were the first clones so i would show them they could save a lot of money by buying a clone i'll help them buy them i would write custom software for them sometimes sometimes i just show them how to use word processors but anyway um it taught me that i could be a consultant basically i didn't have to necessarily work for a company with a paycheck i did a little better i bought a sailboat i bought a 25-foot sailboat and i i never owned a sailboat before i'd only been sailing like twice in my life at that point i worked at a kids camp and found some sailboats and ended up teaching sailing that was the first time i ever did it but sailing really intrigued me so i bought this boat and i'm sailing it around lake ontario and one day i found myself out at some little island on lake ontario alone uh no friends came that day and i'm reading a magazine cruising world i think it was and it had an article on the economics of well living the lifestyle i have now and i realized it's achievable it you know it's it's a big deal but it's not something that can't be done i knew i was gonna have to work hard i knew i was gonna have to take some risks but i became kind of a goal for me to try to retire young and get out and see the world on these terms it was it was really important that article changed my life so pretty short order after that um i found a contracting gig in austin texas i helped ibm develop os2 i quit my day job big risk there because i was just hired to come and do if they didn't like me they would kick me out but there was more money and it was a much more interesting project that one went well um i started doing some other projects and next thing you know my client list was ibm boeing starbucks uh a t a bunch of other ones you haven't heard of but doing interesting things i was successful by basically anybody's standard and i didn't quite live like other people who were doing what i was doing i was still a barber son i really didn't have this concept that money was happiness that stuff was happiness for me money was uh freedom chips a way to to not have to work later i had this saying that if you make more than you spend you're rich and if you spend more than you make you're poor and the scale of it doesn't matter this is before donald trump was president or anything like that he was like my poster child of how not to live to be in bankruptcy every five years you know it didn't matter if he was doing it at the million dollar level as far as i was concerned he was poor i tried to be rich so i lived on the rich side of that i put money away and i invested it and i set myself up to be able to retire young but not to say i didn't spend anything when i was 27 i sold my 25-foot boat and i bought a larger one i bought the one that i'm well sitting in right now uh i spent 55 thousand dollars on her uh she's um she can cross oceans she is a very sound hull but she was in bad shape so i had to tear her down and build her back up it took about eight or ten years of work while i was working and during those eight or ten years i did a lot of work on myself too i prepared myself for this long voyage one advantage of buying a boat as your well obsession or hobby is it can be home so i did save some money uh by not having an apartment anymore i just moved right aboard the boat of course the boat and its slip cost what much more than the apartment but i was gonna have the boat anyway so i tried to save money any way i could in 2000 i was 36 years old and i realized i had enough not enough in frustration i loved my job but i had enough money put away i had enough to achieve my dreams and i wasn't going to just keep chasing something uh so the right thing for me to do at the time was to close down my corporation right at the height of my income and take off sailing it was a wonderful time to be an engineer there was the tech boom going on it was really great closed it all down got in my boat and went south literally within months the tech boom bubble crashed the market dove i lost so much money in the market but since i had this minimalist mindset and since i really was living on very little money before when i was saving i just tightened my belt stayed at this lower income level as it were and wrote it through since i didn't spend spend my principal it came back it took a while but it came back the point is i was able to live on very little and actually out sailing was easier because there weren't commercials in my face saying buy this be happy buy this be happy i had a beautiful dive to go down and look at fish that costs nothing over the next 20 years i sailed this boat twenty thousand ocean miles i visited fourteen percent of the world's countries i had some amazing adventures uh because of the decisions i made in my i've been able to live a life sailing i've been able to visit the warm parts of the world get close and personal and meet other cultures hang out with some really cool people now in 55 um i've got friends who are still working and hoping to retire i've got friends that didn't make it to retire they're dead they're never going to have these adventures i'm so glad that i made those decisions in my 20s and i stuck with them in my 30s and 40s and it's given me such such a wonderful life i want to encourage you regardless of your age to live your best life come up with a plan and stick with the plan i can tell you that little everyday choices can make a huge difference in adding up to a wonderful life how do you do this where do you start i started with something that i call the economy of enough the economy of enough boils down to two things number one understand your goals what makes you happy what will make you happy you're thinking about your whole life here for me it was having financial independence and having the freedom to go off sailing for you it's going to be something else but decide what that is you have to choose something that's actually achievable if it's not achievable you're never going to get there and you have to find it exciting if it doesn't excite you there's no sense living a life without passion choose wisely you only get to make this choice once it's just not going to be time to restart once you have an achievable exciting goal that's your definition of enough it's enough to make you happy it's enough to give your life meaning and it's enough to keep you going most importantly it's a point that you can reach if you don't have a definition of enough you're cursed to chase more and more is just never achievable without that definition of enough knowing and knowing that you've succeeded to get to it a million isn't enough 10 million isn't enough the whole world wouldn't be enough you need to have your own definition of enough to find happiness number two commit to making daily choices that will let you get to your goal this is how you're going to use a little of that chasing more to get to you're enough if your life goal requires any money at all and let's face it they all do you're going to need some money achieving my goal of retiring young and finding financial independence had a lot to do with my saving and spending habits most of what i'm going to talk about now is about saving money how to build wealth through delayed gratification what do i mean by that let me first tell you about marshmallows there's a really well known and simple psychological test that's given to kids and it's like the best indicator of how well they'll do in later life it's called the marshmallow test and how it works is the the researcher gives this little kid a marshmallow and he says you know like this is your marshmallow you can eat it you can do whatever you want but if you don't eat it and i'm gonna leave the room for a bit and if you don't eat it when i come back if you still have the marshmallow i'm gonna give you another marshmallow now this is a really cool test you can just google it look it up on youtube and it's fun to watch because it's little kids trying not to eat marshmallows the point is though that the kids that can delay gratification the kids that don't eat their marshmallow are the kids that later on in life can like not have that five dollar starbucks coffee because they can know five extra bucks in my schwab account it's gonna mean like ten thousand dollars when i need it it's just the way you should live life it's so telling of a test if i had kids i'd give the kids the test and i'd use it as a training thing i'd just give them the test occasionally until they got it until they realized hey if i don't eat the marshmallow i get two marshmallows i think it would train a kid later in life i think in our society most people eat their marshmallows right away and i'm gonna teach you or tell you how i anyway got to financial success by saving marshmallows by putting off these instant gratification purchases and saving the money for when i can do really cool stuff with it and have freedom let's talk about the way to save up some marshmallows number one we're going to talk about work when it comes to work choose a profession that you're good at but choose a profession that is something people want and choose something that pays well many minimalists think that money just doesn't matter and they go into jobs that just don't pay well it's important to actually make money if you're going to follow this model while you're young in a small amount of time or you're not going to be able to retire young so again find something that people need do it really well and demand a fair payment for your efforts the world basically doesn't need another waiter what we need is a welder there's always a demand for welders you put six months into learning to weld and you're gonna get paid well bottom line understand the economy of what's valued out there and pursue a career that will let you maximize your income early the next topic is savings you need a long-term savings account for your retirement and you need a short-term working savings account just to live off of whenever money comes in pay yourself take some of that money and put it in that long-term savings once it's in there it's invested it never comes out again until you are retired you don't say there's a big expensive toy i want it i'll use that nope that money is is just locked your short term account is what you need to live on you shouldn't be going paycheck to paycheck you actually should be moving using money in that account that's a little bit old uh if you're spending everything in that account you're doing it wrong you you should have enough left over in this account to actually slip some more into that investment account when you do write that check to yourself because you save some money on not buying a latte or whatever you should feel really good the brain chemistry you make in this is an important part of it you should celebrate when you're able to put more money in that long-term retirement account let's talk about spending you should decide what you can spend based on what you need not based on how much money is in your account you want to avoid lifestyle inflation especially when you're 20s and your 30s your peers are going to start spending a lot of money around you you're not keeping up with them you're living a different life avoid the temptation to spend that extra money to show your success live below your means you've got a longer goal in mind let's talk about skills our society spends a lot of money on convenience basically paying for other people's time part of saving money is learning how to do stuff for yourself for example your car needs an oil change you can pay someone to do it but you can do it yourself and once you've done it you now know how to do it trust me it's trivial brake pads same thing really really easy job you can do it in the driveway someplace once you've learned to do that you've kind of got the confidence to start learning to do other things the more things like this you put in your belt the more things you know how to do yourself the more you can save keep this up and eventually your collection of skills become vast you can take better care of yourself with less money let's talk about food you can save a lot of money by eating cheaply i've done it to get through bad times but it's no way to live life what i'm suggesting here is just don't blow money on food you can save a lot of money by learning to cook yourself it's another skill just like your car and it'll save there's a lot of other ways to save money pack your lunch don't order coffee on the way to work don't go to restaurants as much buy a steak at home learn to cook it well when you do go out to a restaurant order water instead of some crazy drink and whatever you do don't buy bottled water if the restaurant's water isn't good enough to drink why are you eating their food it was made with that water emily and i love to throw dinner parties and that's kind of how we get that food being better feeling not going out to a restaurant and paying someone to carry food to our table but making food for friends and sharing it with them and then they reciprocate and we have much more intimate wonderful evenings that way bottom line is you eat three times a day it's a really big opportunity for savings even saving a dollar a meal adds up a lot over the long haul let's talk about housing housing is a really major expense it's probably your largest expense and because of that it's an opportunity to save a lot of money there's a lot of people out there that kind of organize their whole life around owning some big crazy expensive house they spend 30 years paying for it and it owns them because housing is such a big expense it's your biggest opportunity for savings i saved a lot of money by living on my boat i was going to own this boat anyway it was my obsession if i had this boat and tried to keep a house or an apartment that's that's a lot of money so i lived on the boat emily my wife uh she did it a different way she's a tiny house person so she lived in well tiny houses you probably know what those things are if not look them up that's pretty cool she minimized her housing expenses by like literally minimizing her house and she had the advantage of just not having a lot of room to collect stuff much like on the boat it's liberating probably those two approaches aren't right for you but there's going to be something that's right for you some way of savings living a little bit outside of the city can save a lot of money or even living in a in the city but in a less expensive neighborhood without hoa fees or a bunch of joneses to keep up with you can save a lot of money in your housing and if you live outside of the city you avoid the temptation of spending money on nightlife there just won't be as much out there emily and i live on a boat anchored in a beautiful natural bay and that decision has turned our living expense at least the housing part of it to zero bottom line rethink the size location and format of your housing you might be able to save let's talk about cars cars are like the most rapidly depreciating item you'll ever buy it's a big opportunity to save money buy an older car and learn to maintain it yourself buying a brand new car is just throwing money down the drain that doesn't mean you can't drive a nice car i drive what is probably one of the best luxury cars ever made and i bought it at 65 000 miles for four and a half thousand dollars emily has a car that's older than her but it's a really cool car and it's it's fun to drive if you want to know more ask in the comments i won't get into the details on the cars here bottom line don't buy a new car buy something that's like 5 years old but make sure it's a really good quality car nobody wants a 5 or 10 year old kia but an old mercedes or a porsche that's still a really good car and there's a lot of good choices in the middle also learn to maintain your own car we talked about that in the skill section there's a lot of opportunities to save money taking care of your own car if you stick with an older inexpensive car you really don't need to carry collision insurance i mean you can literally just buy another one for what the collision would cost in like two or three years just stick with the minimum liability that your local government requires and you're going to save a lot this list could just go on and on but there's one more thing i want to talk about that's relationships it's very important that your long-term relationships are compatible with your goals if you live with roommates or have a lot of friends that don't share these goals it's going to be difficult to keep frugal likewise if you're in a relationship with someone that finds joy by spending and chasing more it's going to be doomed to failure either you're just not going to make your goal or the relationship's going to suffer emily and i were both married before and probably the biggest problem with both of our relationships were our partners didn't understand enough they were still chasing something they didn't understand when at least we felt we had found enough so bottom line try to find someone to share your life with that understands and agrees with your idea of living frugally it can make life a lot better and of course when you get to the point of deciding whether you want to start a family that makes a huge difference financially you can live frugally with kids but understand whatever you do your costs are going to grow and you're going to lose a lot of control over your life in the u.s it cost a quarter million dollars to raise a kid to adult age and our population is booming the planet is full take that into consideration if you do decide to have children have a small family and by all means give those kids the gift of letting them understand enough and find joy in enough the biggest thing about the concept of enough is this one day if you do everything right and you meet your goal you'll be there realize when you're there stop just don't keep striving for things and position when you've got enough you've got enough now it's time to live for yourself this sounds trivial this sounds like duh you know but it isn't um i know the stress i went through when i retired i couldn't identify because it seems like everything was perfect but society had raised me to keep wanting to keep striving i stopped and it took a couple years to feel good my wife emily is running a corporation right now she does management consulting she's not going to be doing that forever and she's starting to think about shutting it down and she knows and she also knows because i've told her it's going to be stressful uh prepare for that achieving is addictive you're going to want to continue to try for more it's like natural probably the human condition but when you're there take some time to [Music] to live for yourself and you can always go back to work you just really deserve to try the other way for a while once you've achieved it let it feel good everyone should have their own philosophy if my concept of enough rings true with you use it it's yours if not try to find something else but leave that leave that intentional life have intention and how you want to live i hope sharing my experience has allowed you to feel maybe a little less alone and more inspired to lead your own better life thanks so much for watching if you enjoyed this video please hit the like button share it

there are a great deal of complex strategies available when it comes to withdrawing your cash in retired life we'' ve currently looked at some of them such as the Guyton clinger rule however not all techniques need to be that complicated to function well sometimes the most basic method is the most great of all and today that'' s what we'' re gon na speak about we ' re gon na be speaking about 2 of the most basic retirement investing strategies available we ' re gon na discuss their benefits and drawbacks along with'who need to be using them let ' s begin however prior to we start make sure to LIKE this video clip if you haven ' t already as it truly does help out the channel a lot as well as subscribe with notices on for more cash related video clips similar to this one each and every single week so the strategies that we'' re gon na be covering today are very similar to each other because they are both called repaired withdrawal strategies they are the set buck withdrawal technique and the set percentage withdrawal method let'' s begin with the simpler of both the fixed dollar withdrawal technique the fixed dollar withdrawal method is precisely what it seems like you begin by withdrawing a particular dollar amount from your savings each and every single month as well as maintain that quantity continuous throughout your entire retirement it essentially doesn'' t obtain any kind of simpler than that state if John were surviving this strategy in retirement he has a 1 million dollar nest egg and also wants to be able to reside on $40,000 a year he withdraws $40,000 in that first year of retirement does the same point in the 2nd and so on etc to put it simply there are no adjustments for rising cost of living utilizing this method to examine this technique let'' s take a look at the 4 factors of retirement which for those that are new to this network our income threat security as well as getting power income gauges just how much money is can be found in the door monthly along with when that money is being available in its measured in this manner because not all retirement investing techniques are systematic as well as straight with their earnings development as well as none people understand how long we'' re gon na be in retired life so we have a tendency to place more of a concern in having abnormally high revenue years in the earliest section of our retirements because we don'' t recognize if we ' ll ever reach the later sections threat is the chance of outliving your money stability is rated by exactly how typically you experienced anything that would be considered an unfavorable change in your revenue from one year to another this could be available in the form of a freeze on the growth of your revenue or simply a decrease in your earnings from near to the following and also acquiring power is specified like it always is it'' s a measure of just how much your cash can in fact obtain you at any given time as well as is mainly tied to rising cost of living the set dollar approach is normally taken into consideration to be a little stronger on revenue and threat in comparison to various other popular methods like the 4% guideline however it does experience in terms of stability and also buying power the reason for this is straightforward as long as your initial withdrawals aren'' t too expensive you ' re relatively not likely to outlive your money using this strategy and you might in fact have the ability to live at a greater requirement of living a minimum of at first than you would certainly have in other comparable approaches like the 4% policy in reality going all the method back to 1950 if John had actually had that one million dollar nest egg invested in something like the S&P 500 he would certainly not in fact outlive his cash during any type of 20 30 40 or half a century retirement as long as he would certainly real no even more than fifty four thousand bucks a year or forty five hundred a month so also points like the real estate dilemma in dot-com collision didn'' t reason him to lack money so this does provide John a higher requirement of living at first than the 4% guideline would have due to the fact that of course with a 1 million dollar nest egg the 4% policy would just enable him to draw $40,000 a year to survive though ultimately like I stated the rising cost of living effect would certainly capture up with him making use of the fixed dollar method which'' s where this method does often tend to fall short it'' s not indicated for longer retired lives because while John might be able to deal with surviving $54,000 a year particularly if he'' s retiring financial obligation totally free with a paid off home it comes to be progressively challenging to do that as the years take place due to the inflation effect historically talking rising cost of living has averaged somewhere between 2 as well as 3% annually in the USA if we think that our individual average rising cost of living rate in retired life is nearer the top of that range well at 3 percent annually after that John'' s$ 54,000 a year revenue will get him the matching of what $40,000 would certainly get him today in simply 10 years time in 20 years his money would just have the ability to acquire him regarding what twenty nine thousand nine hundred dollars would certainly get him today as well as his cash would deserve the equivalent of twenty two thousand two hundred and also fifty bucks sixteen thousand five hundred and also fifty bucks and twelve thousand three dollars a year in 30 40 as well as 50 years respectively just due to the fact that of the impact of inflation so simply for a minute allow'' s visualize that John had actually decided to adhere to the economically independent retire early activity but rather than utilizing the 4% guideline which helps to shield your purchasing power over longer term retirements like those in the fire neighborhood are going for John makes a decision to use the set dollar withdrawal technique assuming every little thing else stayed the same John would certainly retire at the age of 30 with a $54,000 a year income as well as a 1 million buck nest egg once again at the age of 30 that would be perfectly great for him nevertheless the average life span for people residing in the u.s.Is regarding 79 years old since 2019 and it'' s feasible that that number will remain to expand as innovation as well as medicine continues to advance so presuming he doesn'' t die young it isn ' t out of the inquiry that he would have a close to 50-year retirement and also be surviving on the equivalent of concerning $1,000 a month when he'' s maturing and his medical expenses go to their highest possible as you can imagine that wouldn'' t be an ideal circumstance for John as well as that ' s why this strategy usually isn ' t the best suggestion for longer term retirements but for the appropriate individual in regards to the 4 aspects of retirement the fixed dollar method is above average and earnings and risk but second-rate instability and also acquiring power in contrast to the 4% rule the fixed portion technique works really in a similar way to the fixed dollar method other than that you'' re taking out a certain portion of your savings annually instead of a specific dollar value this strategy also doesn'' t readjust for rising cost of living yet it does at the very least adjust with the worth of your portfolio as well as depending upon what you'' re bought and also what preliminary portions you pick this method may exercise all right state John simply wanted to withdraw a 4% of his investments annually in retired life given that the value of his investments were $1,000,000 when he retired he would certainly withdraw $40,000 in his first year that would leave him with nine hundred and sixty thousand bucks left over if his investments went up by 10 percent that year the value of his profile would certainly be someplace in the community of a million as well as fifty 6 thousand dollars at the begin of his 2nd year of retirement since he'' s taking out 4 percent of that he would certainly survive on forty two thousand 2 hundred and forty bucks because second year thinking inflation was three percent during that very first year of his retired life his buying power would have really gone up if he had actually simply changed his withdrawals for rising cost of living like he would certainly have if he were utilizing the real 4% rule he would have taken out 40 1200 dollars in his second year or concerning a thousand and $40 much less than he did using the set percent withdrawal technique in this situation the disadvantage that I'' m sure a great deal of you currently see is that the opposite can additionally occur claim that the list below year john'' s investments dropped by 20% bringing the worth of his savings down to about eight hundred as well as eleven thousand bucks and forcing him to withdraw thirty 2 thousand 4 hundred and forty bucks in the 3rd year of his retired life that would certainly be considerably much less than the forty two thousand four hundred dollars that John would certainly have taken out in that 3rd year making use of the actual four percent policy so as you can see relying on the circumstance security is something that this strategy can have a very low score in offered that the worth of a savings particularly if it'' s bought something like stocks can expand or shrink by 20 30 and even 40 percent from one year to the next the brilliant side naturally is that you have an extremely low danger of lacking cash in theory it'' s actually no if you'' re able to follow this strategy to a tee and also I especially say theoretically since like numerous points it'' s just gon na hold true as much as a certain factor if we take it to a sensible extreme we can break this down claim if John had $10,000 in his savings as well as he intended to survive on half of that nest egg for the following 5 years theoretically he'' d be'great as well as he ' d never ever lack cash since he'' d always be withdrawing fifty percent of whatever that savings is yet the amount of of us are gon na be able to survive on 5 thousand dollars a year that would be what he'' d be taking out that initial year as well as naturally it would be even much less the 2nd year if his financial investments stayed flat his 2nd years withdrawals would certainly be half of five thousand dollars or twenty five hundred bucks and also I put on'' t recognize lots of individuals that are residing on two hundred bucks a month yet the factor is if you'' re happy to take the hit to the stability of your income in retired life you can typically securely squeeze out a bit even more than four percent of your nest egg each year in a regular retired life using this strategy you just need to be prepared to see the ordinary raw dollar revenue that you obtain shrink as you go additionally right into your retired life to illustrate this allow'' s say that John took out 10% of his savings every year assuming he had that a person million-dollar nest egg he would certainly begin with a six-figure revenue nevertheless if he finished up living longer than he prepared on he might eventually find himself living on what would just be generously referred to as a small allocate instance in the simulations I ran covering the numerous retired life sizes beginning with 1950 forward presuming John had invested in the S&P 500 he would certainly have had a mean month-to-month earnings of about $6,500 a month in 20 as well as thirty years retirements which when changing for inflation would certainly be around $3,600 a month in twenty years scenarios and also twenty seven hundred bucks a month in thirty-year situations however that number did reduce a great deal as the retired lives obtained much longer for instance in half a century retired lives his average median monthly income had to do with forty four hundred bucks which again doesn'' t audio negative yet when we take a look at the final few years worth of his month-to-month withdrawals we find that it'' s really regarding$ 2,300 a month on standard which is substantially less than the six-figure earnings he started with and also of training course that $2,300 a month was what he was actually taking out almost half a century from now as soon as we change for inflation over that time it might not even get John what $1,000 a month would certainly buy him today so comparable to the fixed dollar withdrawals your purchasing power can be taking a substantial hit if the first portions you establish in this method are expensive in summation the fixed percentage method ratings fairly well though not elite when it comes to income specifically when used in early retired lives it does wonderful in terms of threat again thinking you'' re not as well aggressive with your first portions however is questionable with stability as well as poor in terms of acquiring power so in the long run who ought to make use of these methods currently I'' ll admit I am directly biased here I think there'' s extremely few people who need to genuinely be using these methods as their key technique it'' s mostly restricted to those with really short anticipated retired lives to make sure that their getting power doesn'' t ended up being also harmed gradually as well as even then ideally just by those that are likewise coming close to that very same retired life with little to no financial obligation since especially with the set percentage approach you'' ll frequently require to be quite versatile with your costs from your year but for those that aren'' t retiring very early as well as will run out than 9 or 10 years that they anticipate to be retired they have little financial debt to mention as well as want something extremely straightforward to comply with when finding out just how much of their money they must take out each year among these techniques might exercise well it offers you some benefits in terms of revenue without considerable boosts in risk but what are your ideas do you concur with my assessment of the method or do you believe that I'' m missing out on something do you believe an additional strategy would work better for

Today I want to share with you exactly how I retire at the age of 27 how I did it and maybe how you could do it as well you see I started very early at a young age the path of entrepreneurship I started my first business when I was in high school just with a couple of buddies mowing lawns for people in our neighborhoods that's my very first business there are three things that I did during this time that allows me to retire young and with higher rich so the very first thing is this I focus on developing what I call high income skills my high income skills skills that allow me to bring value to the marketplace in exchange of money now I define high income skills as skills that could make me $10,000 or more per month you see the first five years of my business career when I was getting started the first five years I didn't take a single day off I was working 12 to 14 hours a day seven days a week for the first five years while all my friends they were out there drinking drinking and having parties and chasing girls I was fucking working I sacrifice I made a lot of sacrifices I believe if you don't sacrifice for your dream then your dream becomes your sacrifice so I made a decision I pay the price early on I spent a few years of my life working on myself working on my business doing the things that most people are too lazy to do not willing to do so I could have what most people cannot have the very first high income skill that I develop was copywriting now you might wonder what that is well it's simply the skill to use words to sell that's it Prine persuasion or persuasion in print and our words running a one-man advertising agency myself if you watch the TV show man man that's kind of what I was doing without all the smoking and all that bullshit but I was basically a cocking gun in my early 20s working with companies working with entrepreneurs and I was making 10,000 a month $12,000 a month in my early 20s and at the time I thought he was it was like I felt like a million bucks I thought it was the most money I've ever seen and I did that then later on I took that money the income did I earn I put that aside and I started coin called a scalable business now if you want to retire early and retire young one of the most important things that you have to know is noticing identifying trends at a time I went onto the internet I saw this trend on the Internet we're talking about back then remember Netscape dial-up modem I'm talking about overture for pay-per-click you know good old days you're watching this young young guys you may or may not even know this but I'm talking about Yahoo for search engines okay Facebook and then later on Google but I'm talking about that so when I got started back then early and I noticed a trend on internet and I was importing collectibles from Hong Kong Bruce Lee collectibles actually and I was flipping them on eBay I was doing affiliate marketing I was doing digital marketing online I was selling digital products before PDF before all these things were even popular software all these things and that's how my first bucket of money then I took that money and I saw some of those physicists I cash out and I took that money and invest in real estate then my investments are able to support my lifestyle and that's how I retire at the age of 27 but here's one thing I've learned through that experience at the age of 27 I thought this was my dream I thought I want to get to a point where I don't have to work anymore I'll sit in a beach all day and that is going to be it and I did that the first month first 30 days I was sitting on a beach on English pay just to be there every single day right looking at a beach looking at the ocean I thought I have made it you know what all I got was sunburn that's it you may dream I'm sitting on a beach every day I'm telling you when you could do it I was bored out of my mind I thought this is fucking stupid I work so hard to get here and now I'm sitting on beach doing nothing this is dumb like did I work all like this heart and may all that sacrifices for this like come on because you've got to understand when you're entrepreneur I was going like this every day go go go go go suddenly when you have nothing to do when you cash out when you have investments you're like okay I guess what else do you do right after 30 days of that I was sick and tired of it I'm like this is a dumbest thing ever so the second month I did something different actually thought you know what I'm gonna I'm gonna watch the movies so at a time I rendered a lot of movies a lot I was watching six seven movies the DVDs stack of them every single day let me tell you something I love movies don't get me wrong but when you're watching six seven movies every fucking day you don't like movies so much anymore believe me okay after 30 days of that I'm like this is again the dumbest thing ever i I just felt like I so lazy I felt like I wasn't doing anything with my life then I went to talk to my mentor and he said okay Dan he's what I want you to do I want you to start in other business I said no no I'm not gonna start another business I was killing myself all these years so I could retire you don't understand I'm not gonna work he said no you're gonna start outta business I said no I am NOT gonna start down to business he said you're gonna start another business I said no but this time he said you're gonna start a business from a totally different place because now you're made it you could start your business coming from a place of strength coming from a place of abundance coming from a place of something that you want what do you want to create build it around your wor strength build it around your passion because now money's not an issue you're not just doing to make money what could you do how could you use all the skills that you've accumulated you've developed all the business acumen all the knowledge that you have how can you use that to do something great and I thought that I could do so that's my story that's how I retire at the age of 27 I don't know where you're at in your journey maybe you want to retire young maybe you want to retire at age of 45 55 65 I don't know where you're at but what I do know is it's possible and what I also do know is once you get there there's always an other step there's always an other level so don't wait don't feel like you have to get to a point where hey you know what I'm gonna spend my whole life doing stuff that I hate so I could get to a point where finally I could do some stuff that I love No enjoy the journey success is a journey not a destination

Is it possible in this day and age to become a millionaire? Or perhaps the better question is why would you want to become a millionaire? I mean in media today Millionaires and billionaires for that matter are often not depicted in the best light. Characters like Scrooge McDuck or the always supremely evil C. Montgomery Burns come to mind here. And of course right now in real life we have the ever-present Donald Trump as one of the main poster boys of the super wealthy. So I suppose with that kind of media influence hovering over us our entire lives it's not surprising that most of us have a fairly negative view of the super wealthy and many really do not want to become a part of it. Especially since the majority of us don't personally know anyone who's Super Rich so we don't have anything to really balance the scales, and that's all we can really draw upon is what we see in the media.
And that's really unfortunate because there's a lot of really great wealthy people out there. But most of them are not in the public eye and even the ones that are in the public eye like Bill Gates don't get as much media attention as someone like donald Trump does. And as a result there are a lot of misconceptions about millionaires and the wealthy in general. Hey guys, Daniel here from Next Level Life and it recently occurred to me that I’ve been neglecting a huge part of what it takes to have that next level life that we all dream of… because whatever your dream life is, you need to have the finance resources in place first to be able to live it.
So with that in mind I’m going to be starting this new series on my channel covering various topics in the field of personal finance. And as you can see by the title for my first video of the series I wanted to talk about a simple plan that, if stuck to, will practically guarantee your future millionaire status as well as take a moment and really define what a millionaire is and is not. Because believe it or not even for the average American it is possible. No you know what possible is too soft of a claim because it's more than possible. In fact if you follow a few simple steps it's almost guaranteed. Don't believe me? Well hopefully over the course of this video as well as the rest of my personal finance videos that will be coming out soon I'll be able to convince you. So without further ado, let's get started. What is a millionaire? A millionaire is simply someone who has a million-dollar positive net worth. Meaning after subtracting debts and other liabilities and expenses they have a million dollars worth of stuff leftover between their cash their house and all their other assets.
That's really all there is to it. It has nothing to do with how much money you make. It has nothing to do with what type of person you are or how well-known you maybe, it simply means that your assets are valued at least 1 million dollars greater than your liabilities. But how can the average American get to that $1000000 positive net worth in their lifetime? I mean $1000000 that's 6 zeros, i'd imagine that most of us have never written a check with more than three zeros. Unless of course you bought a new car or house with cash and if that's the case kudos to you, you may not even need this video because you're already probably well on your way to that million-dollar net worth. Now I said that if you follow a few simple steps it's not only possible to reach that million-dollar marker, it's almost guaranteed.
Let's find out how. Well I did a few calculations and found out that over the course of the last 40 years the S&P 500 has returned an average of percent per year not including dividends. Now technically speaking past results are no indicator of future returns, but until we see the future returns this is the best we've got to go off of. So assuming that over the next 40 years the market does roughly the same as it did since 1978 you could invest $2per month over the next 40 years and become a millionaire. Again assuming no dividends. Now 261 dollars may seem like a lot but when you break it down it's not even $10 a day, and there are lots of ways to save money. You can cut cable, or go down to a lower internet speed, or not eat out quite as often, or use coupons when you're shopping for groceries, or you can do none of those things and instead find a way to make a little bit of extra income.
Maybe you start mowing lawns or shovel and driveways on the side, maybe you start selling old clothes that you don't need anymore online, or if you're young you might be able to start teaching people how to use social media better. You'd honestly be amazed at how many people would pay you to do that. There's a ton of options out there, all you have to do is pick the one or maybe few that work out the best for you and start your own Journey on the path to becoming financially independent. Now there's a couple of things that I want to clear up before ending the video for those of you who are a little bit more Analytical in nature. That percent is the geometric mean rate of return that the S&P 500 has had since 1978 according to Yahoo finance. All I did to get it was go through each year and look at where the market was in September because as of the recording of this video September just ended.
Then I put them all into the Excel spreadsheet and calculated the return. And I think the reason why we hear so many different rate of returns thrown around by Financial gurus is because of the inflation effect. I've heard gurus say that you can expect to earn anywhere from 6 to 10% per year in the market. And depending on what time frame and type of average you use any of those numbers could be true. For example if you go from 1978 and use an arithmetic average the average return on the market would be about percent per year. Inflation is generally assumed to be about three to four percent so if you adjust for inflation your realized return would be somewhere in that 6 – 7% range. If you don't adjust for inflation of course you're at nearly a 10 percent return. So there you go there's a simple formula to retiring with the amount of wealth that most of us would consider to be rich.
