The concept of retiring early is not viewed by society as normal, so it’s nearly impossible to find mainstream support for your goal.
How do you push forward and keep on track? Tune out everything and anyone who doesn’t provide positive encouragement. In fact, it will usually be best to keep your ideas and plans to yourself. It’s not worth having to justify your goals to people who are willing to slave away at jobs they hate until they are in their 70s. They can’t imagine a different life. Their attachment to the illusion of security that they believe the job provides blinds then to the possibilities that exist.
Shut off the TV. Read only news or websites that support your goals and vision. This is a lifestyle that most can’t imagine so don’t waste your time with critics. Stick to the plan. Keep saving. Invest more.
