In society I have witnessed many examples to question the satiation of people. When is enough really enough? I ask this every time I come across a perfect example of people wanting more. Why the thirst is never really quenched, I often ponder. Is it an environmental issue or an individual issue based on upbringing? I am ready to give you a few examples of people who do not know the word enough or the feeling of being satisfied with what they already have in life.
When is Enough really Enough:
People taking vacations every year while still in debt. (Hey didn’t the vacation you took 6 months ago satisfy you enough – guess not)
People finally paying off their cars, then immediately running to the dealership to upgrade the paid for car for another car payment. (Why must you be so smart with money- Sarcasm?)
People getting 8 running shoes or high heeled pumps to really impress the masses. (I believe two to three sneakers or shoes is sufficient for your wardrobe needs)
People expressing discontent with money issues, but continue to open a 12th credit card. (They want more stuff or they might be using credit cards as an emergency fund-HUH?)
People constantly going to the Mall to kill time. (If you don’t want to be tempted, why hold hands with a temptress)
People desiring the newest gadgets. (The iPhone 8 does exactly the same thing as iPhone 7, except for one “I must have it feature”- Really?)
People Leasing away their cash flow because they can’t afford a car – (I can’t understand why anybody would pay for something for 4 years to then give it back)
People continue to set resolutions and never complete them – (Complete goals to get ahead)
People continue to play the Lotto, when they really know they won’t win. – (You have a greater chance of dying while driving-Sad but True)
People can’t hear your advice, because they know so much. (They have never read any PF finance books, Umm so tell me again how you know so much)
These are a few examples of the personal finance smarts roaming the blogosphere and everywhere in modern society. I am guessing the fast paced world with “super marketing tactics” influence to a degree these individuals to never grasp the enough mantra. I am ready to happily provide these folks, who do not know their own limits, the tools to break the damaging personal finance cycle.
The secret is simple to have patience and will power with the ability to read a few personal finance books.
