Don’t work for stuff or let things on you. I was talking to some of our clients on our VIP call. And one of them was expressing frustration with how large his overhead is. And we do. I do this. I mean, you know, I’ve done this in the past and it’s a continual struggle that I have fight with. But you know, it is so important that you set yourself up so that you’re living below your daily or your regular income. If your budget uses 100% of your income, then what happens when a surprise bill comes up? You go into debt or, you know, this stuff starts to crumble. I don’t want that for you. That’s so stressful. Forget that. Don’t let these things on. You don’t let debt on you. A lot of times you get into debt because of stuff, whether it’s a car or a house, etc.. I would encourage you to live below your means. It will decrease the amount of stress in your life, which will have the effect of increasing the amount of joy and fun in your life, and you’ll just be better off. So don’t let things own. You don’t work harder for stuff that you’re just going to toss out in a couple of years. I’m all about putting in extra effort to make more money so you can go on fun vacations and have cool experiences, even buy things for others. I love that, but don’t work for possessions. It is so empty.
