We looked last week at some of the simple pleasures in life that come with a price. That was to check where your prosperity consciousness was at. Now let’s take it a little deeper…
Most people can justify some of those simple pleasures. Especially the ones that are about helping others. But what about the more expensive stuff? The stuff for YOU?
The difference between the bath towels in a Holiday Inn, and the Sheraton on the Park in Sydney would seem to be inconsequential. Until you experience them.
The average person would say that a pair of Bally loafers cannot be worth the price jump over regular shoes, but that’s because they never wore the Bally’s.
Can you justify spending $3,000 for a suit made with the finest wool, versus a cheap one at $800? And what about $3,000 more for a bespoke suit? If you saw the way you looked in each, you wouldn’t quibble on the price.
Now of course everything is relative. If you can spring six grand for a pair of hand-crafted shoes from Lobb’s of London, I say go for it. But if it takes you three months to make that $6,000, you could probably best use that money elsewhere. Like investing in something that will teach you how to make more money.
Then the issue comes of whether you can spend money like that on yourself, without feeling guilty or trying to justify it to the herd.
Could you spend $5,000 for a pair of shoes? Ten thousand dollars for a purse or a coat? A couple hundred thousand on an automobile?
Would you feel guilty? Would you think the money had to come from “good” things like charity? Would you feel you had to justify this spending to the people around you?
How you answer these questions will teach you a lot about your ability to manifest prosperity and abundance in your life.
