Don't Be A Slave To Your ThingsWritten by Steve Gillman
Do you have things like a bicycle, jetski, or swimming pool that sit unused? Is it that you don't have time to use them because you have to work so much just to pay for them? Sometimes it seems like all things we own somehow own us.
The bad news is that it's often true. We have to arrange our lives around our things. You get a new truck that can go anywhere, but you're too busy working to go there. Someone is out fishing while you are putting in overtime to pay for your fishing boat. You use your large-screen television a lot, but does it sufficiently reduce debt-stress that came with it?
Break The Chains!
The good news is that there's a better way. Actually, there are three better ways. First, know what you really value. Second, use cash instead of debt. Third, learn how to look at costs and benefits.
Will you really enjoy that $2,000 mountain bicycle enough? Maybe. This isn't about right or wrong desires. It's a question of truly seeing your own values. Think back to things you've bought but not used, or not used enough. What truly enjoyable things could you do with that money if you had it now? You've got to be self aware and honest.
The Key is In Your HandsWritten by Kenia Morales
People have a natural tendency to: Complain about others being self absorbed. Complain about living in a materialistic World. Complain about having dishonest friends and blah, blah, blah! Seriously, if I keep going It will never come to an end.
But, are you any different? Do you seek out to make changes in World? Do you lend a hand to a friend in need?
Mahatma Gandhi said “You must be change you want to see in world”.
The same principle can be applied to your goals. If you are not exactly were you want to be in life; then it is time you take control and make some changes. Do not wait for external sources to handle anything for you.
