This is a question that comes up all the time. How can you save the money that you want to save in order to do the things that you have always wanted to do. It is both a problem and something that most people just do not know how to accomplish.
Well why is it that most people make the art of saving money to do the things that they really want much harder than it actually is? You really have to sit down and ask yourself the question what is it that you want to do with the money that you want to save. There is absolutely no point in saying that you want to save $10,000, and when you accomplish this feat you just do not know what to do with the money. Saving money for money’s sake is pointless and something that you should waste your time on. The first thing you need to do is to define what you want to do/experience and how much that is going to cost you.
Once you have defined what you planned to use the money for and how much you actually need, then you can start to design your life in order to get the money that you want. The next thing that you have to do is to really look at the lifestyle that you are currently leading. You have to look at where you are currently spending your money on, and really where you are wasting your money on. This is crucial. You have to analyse why you are spending money on things that you don’t even need. Things that are not making you happy, but just getting you to waste your time and getting you further away from ever being able to achieve the goals that you have set out to achieve. How are you ever going to be able to save $10,000 if you keep on spending money on junk that you do not care about? Something that you really need to think about.
So to really be able to save the money that you want to do to accomplish life long dreams such as travelling around the world you are going to have to start to de clutter your life of all the things that are holding you back. You are going to have to really start to look at your life from a new angle. You are really going to have to become a minimalist. This is the only way that you are ever going to be able to save the money that you want to save.
