Living a materialistic lifestyle is not the way to go through life. That is, do not let simply your possessions be the things that make you happy. Rather, allow yourself to be happy through the meaningful things that surround you like your family and friends.
Today’s Tip of the Day: Find a way to reduce your attachment to your possessions. The more attached you are to the things you own, the harder it will be for you the day they are no longer there. Let’s say you were hired as VP of some big company and were granted a hefty bonus along with a sharp company car. Two years roll around and the company is not where they want to be and they decide to let you go, taking your car back and ceasing all payments they were making towards you. You’re going to find yourself in a rut rather quickly.
Being a needy person is not the way to go through life. Many of us (myself included) are used to receiving things that we want and expecting them to continue to happen. Minimizing your affection for materialistic things like clothes, cars, houses, and more can be a good way to find positivity in the things in life that will truly make you happy. I am confident you will discover what these naturally spirit lifting things are when you grow further from the money oriented pleasures.
