Below are 3 important factors to retire early:

Monthly Expenses below Income

Your monthly living expenses should be low in order to successfully retire early. Higher the expenses, more time it will take you to accumulate the amount needed to retire.

Ideally your monthly expenses should be lower than monthly income so that you save some amount every month. Higher savings rate is crucial right from the start of your career to retire early.

Increase your Monthly Income

You can try to increase your monthly income in order to reach your financial target before time. If you get the chance to switch your jobs, or get promotion / bonus, every addition of income will count here to increase your savings rate and at the same time controlling your monthly living expenses.

Invest your Savings

It is very important that you invests your savings resulting from low monthly expenses. Higher savings rate can help you to achieve retirement early.

Do not keep money idle in Bank Savings Account that gives around 2.5% to 3% annual interest rate. Instead, start a Fixed Deposit in order to keep emergency funds for next 3 to 6 months and remaining amount should go in good mutual funds for long term to help you retire early.

4% Withdrawal Rule

According to 4% Withdrawal Rule, you should be withdrawing maximum of 4% of your accumulated amount for your yearly expenses.

The idea is to withdraw the amount (4%) lower than the expected returns (10% to 12%) based on the mutual funds selected. This will not only help you cover your monthly / yearly expenses, but also will help your accumulated amount grow with time.
