Many people are convinced that treating yourself with a splurge here and there will motivate you to accomplish your goals. I get it, everyone wants the LV on their belts and everyone wants to spend money on nice things. But this habit is not going to get you anywhere.
In fact, treating yourself can actually detriment your progress towards financial freedom.
Is Treating Yourself REALLY Helping?
Now, I’m not going to stand here and say spending money is a bad thing. You need to spend money to take care of yourself and your family.
But when you keep making excuses to
- Spend more money on things you don’t need
- Call out of work
- Stay in bed later
All you’re doing is justifying behaviors that are doing nothing but hold you back from your highest potential.
When you do have cash that you’re just itching to get rid of, don’t use it on an exotic car because guess what? It doesn’t matter.
NOBODY IS GOING TO CARE IF YOU HAVE THE MOST EXPENSIVE CARS AND CLOTHES. THEY WILL CARE THAT YOU HAVE CREATED A LEGACY WITHIN YOUR COMPANY AND YOUR FAMILY.
Instead of spending your hard-earned cash on things that are going to do nothing for you…
Utilize those funds to create a steady cash flow and invest in yourself.
Treating yourself is nice when it’s your birthday, but I’m going to be honest with you…
If all I cared about when working was how I was going to be treating myself next, I definitely wouldn’t be where I am today.
When you keep making excuses to relax…
Or put money towards things you know you don’t need…
All you do is rob yourself of future opportunities for wealth, connection, and mobility.
PAY THE PRICE NOW TO PAY ANY PRICE TOMORROW
We all want to get rich quick. However, creating your legacy means hard work and sacrificing short-term satisfaction for a lifetime of success.
So… do you still need that watch? Or are you finally willing to make that sacrifice and start setting up the life that you know you’re meant for?
Just a fair warning, the latter option might include less “treating yourself”.
