Grant Sabatier of Millennial Money retired early at 30 years old as a millionaire. During early retirement, he’s realized that success doesn’t come from achieving financial independence or external factors.
“On my own journey I’ve learned that success doesn’t come from money, or a promotion, or the next big project, or that new car,” he wrote. “It doesn’t come from outside. It comes from within.”
Now that money is no longer his goal, he realized how unimportant it actually is.
“To me, success isn’t about money, it’s about peace,” he wrote.
“I just want to feel a peace. I want to feel calm and present. I want to feel alive. I want to feel at one with the world and myself. I don’t want to be shackled by worry about money or the future. I want to feel at ease. Like I’ve found my rhythm. Like I’m in the right place. That ‘peaceful easy feeling.”
