Valuing the Resources that You Have

Before the day ended, I was able to reflect upon the recent successes and failures I had in my life… and then I worried. We know we tend to worry about our our current situation in this modern world at times. Whether it be our family, career, business, finances and what-have-you.

We may tend to worry much about the future. We might let scarcity get in our way of thinking and make us unwise decisions. One thing I’d say to you: don’t be. I came to this conclusion on our way to a party with friends (Oh, these stretch Lincoln limousine we rode on was perfect!).

If we have something, we must be happy that we have it, we must give it importance because not everyone is given the chance to have what we have now. There are important things in life that make us happy and it differs in each and everyone of us.

Count your blessings!  do believe that we are blessed and we are very fortunate if we have something, and that this is because of the level of being fortunate that we should feel the value of  things and feel gratitude among ourselves, because gratitude is the one which brings in good vibes to us. It makes us feel happy and it keeps us motivated to go through life.

Valuing the resources that we have is also one way of saying to yourself that you are happy with what you have now, and that you would surely be doing good because of  the your resources, because you’ve worked hard for it, you spent energy and time doing it, and now that you have these resources, you then reap what has been sown.

I do think that gratitude (like what this video I just watch points out) plays a very important role in the valuing process because when you have gratitude, you become thankful, you become the person who is willing to look at what he  or she have now and gives himself or herself a break, a reward of some sort, because you value your hard work, as well as your resources.

Valuing your resources, your things, is also one way of saying that you care for it, and that you also care for your own life. You do not just treat your things as garbage, because you love it, and you know that this is yours, so why would you treat your things as garbage?


Removing Luxurious Wants

Luxury is good, it makes your homes look wonderful, it makes you look wonderful, it makes the world look wonderful. They add aesthetic value.

But this I tell you, luxury only makes the world a place which is more inclined on the unneeded things, on the nonsense things in life, on the stupid things. It just sucks the money out of us, leaving us broke, leaving us with no room to spend money on the more important things in life. It makes us disabled, disabled in a sense that we cannot have the things that we want, as a result of us spending money on the unneeded  things in life.

Most people don’t know the difference between needs and wants.

Remove your luxurious wants, because these luxurious wants are the things that shows to us that the important things in life become unimportant.

You need to remove your luxurious wants because this is the thing that makes you bankrupt, this is the thing that sucks the money out of you, as well as of course, the energy, and the positive vibes, because once you get hold of these luxuries, you feel happy, but this happiness is only temporary.

This is what makes luxurious things different, it is because they only serve happiness to us in just a very short span of time,  because they make us feel that we need to have more. Through time we become sick of them, and so we wanted to have  more, and when we wanted to have more, we wanted to have something which is better, and better means the things which have a higher price.


Prioritizing Your Needs

There are needs and there are wants.

These needs and wants are two separate parties of which we need to know thoroughly.

I do believe that we need to prioritize our needs instead of prioritizing our wants, because the needs are what make sus survive, and living a life without needs would surely not be a life because life would be impossible if we cannot have our needs, because it is our needs. We need it. It is not just some thing that you  want to fancy on and put as a decoration in your horse, it is  your need. You need this  to have life. You need this.

Prioritize your needs over your wants because these needs are the basics of life, these are  the fundamentals of life, these are the building blocks of life, these are the vital things that makes life form out of the void.

Samples of our needs are our food, our water, our shelter. That is what we need. We do not need to have cars, to have airconditioning units, to have gold nclaes, diamond neclaces, bracelets, to have chocolates, to have marble floors. What we need to have is to have that something that will fuel us that will support our lives, that will push us ever closer  to our dreams, to our goals, and in the future and in the process become a successful person.


Rewarding Yourself

What you need to when you have worked hard for something, is to reward yourself, treat yourself, and make yourself feel happy with what you have accomplished, because you have succeeded in doing it.

I do believe that we need an inspiration, we need a motivation that will drive us towards our goals, and the thing that will push us forward is the rewards that we need to give to ourselves, because we move through a process in our lives, and it is through this moving process that we need the fuel that would propel us forward.

Of course, when we do something, we have breaks, we have stops, and when we have these stops, we might see that we have certainly and surely have come a  long way, and because of this, we see the pride in ourselves and we become happy and satisfied. We become like this because we are proud of ourselves.

Treat yourself, give yourself a break, a relaxing moment, a leisure time, so that you will be fueled more to pursue it, because there is never an end to something. There are times that it seems that you have already mastered something, there are times that seems that  you have already given it your best shot, and that you may think that you have mastered that specific something, but in reality you still have not. Perhaps you have, but you need to not stop, you need to find other ways that you can use for your potential.


Knowing the Limits of Your Wants

I do believe that we all have limits, and that these limits are the ones that gives balance to our lives, and to the world. It is these limits that shows to us that we cannot have everything, because when we do, then that would mean total chaos and complications would arise because of this.

Know the limits of your wants, because when you have much more wants than your needs, then you are surely going to go bankrupt and you will lose all of your money, your wealth. I do believe that you need to take care of them and learn how to save, because that is what you need to do for you to know the limits of your wants.

Do not succumb into the wanting obsession of something, because this is irrational, this is illogical. What you need to do is to know  on how to know the limits and know if it is worthy to be bought, or worthy to be called yours. If not then might as well do not have it or own it, because it is not too much useful  to you.

Which is why you should know on where to stop, where to put yourself, and put a stop to your shopping spree, because when you go shopping, what usually happens is that you just go  out there, look and  search for something, and when it pleases you, you put it into your shopping cart, and you buy it, without the thinking process if you really like it, because you are overwhelmed with your wants that you wanted to have.
