And instead invest in yourself.
Experiences are expensive. Just like things. And sometimes those experiences are a lot more expensive than the things you would have bought otherwise.
But you might think, “yeah it's an experience and everybody says to buy experiences instead of things.”
Buying experiences is the new thing.
But here's the truth...
If you keep spending all of your money on things or experiences you'll never be able to buy yourself some freedom. Some freedom from having to show up to a job you don't really enjoy that much. Some freedom to live wherever you want to live.
And that freedom is expensive. Simply because it takes a hell lot of time to get there. To build up that side business. To build up those multiple streams of income. To become free.
It doesn't happen over night. It takes a hell lot of time.
So instead of spending all your money on things or experiences to reward yourself for doing things you don't really enjoy that much, why not start investing in yourself?
Why not start investing your time and energy into things that will help you to get there?
To get to where you really want to be. Where you have to be.
Will it work out? Will you ever be able to buy yourself some freedom and do more of the things you want to do?
I don't know. Maybe it will. Maybe it won't.
It worked out for me. Sort of.
But it took time. A lot of time. And a lot of sacrifice.
A long time without buying stuff or experiences.
Again, freedom is expensive. And you need to be ready to sacrifice a lot.
Some people sacrifice their entire lives for freedom. For their own freedom. For other people's freedom.
What are you willing to sacrifice..?
