In today’s article, I’m going to share with you the one skill which is important in order to become RICH.
Becoming RICH is a subjective matter as there are hundreds, if not thousands of ways to achieve it in these modern days. However, many would agree every success comes down to one important quality which is ‘Sacrifice’.
To put it simply, without ‘sacrifice’, ‘nothing’ can be ‘achieved’.
Without ‘sacrifice’, no ‘budget plan succeeds’.
Every ‘budget’ plan requires you to ‘cut down spending’.
So , say goodbye to those ‘expensive Starbucks’ drinks. Or to that delicious and healthy ‘Avocado toasts’.
Without ‘sacrifice’, no ‘investment’ can bear ‘profits’.
Every ‘investment’ begins with you having to ‘put aside money’ which you ‘don’t have access’ over a period of time.
Without ‘sacrifice’, no ‘self-discipline’ can be achieved too.
Every ‘self-discipline artist’ knows what it takes to achieve a ‘higher state’ of being able to ‘control’ self from ‘spending’ unnecessarily.
So, you’re probably wondering “How can one achieve a higher level of ‘sacrifice’?”
My short answer is to ‘Travel’.
When I say travel, not jet setting in ‘first class’ seats, or staying in a ‘5 star hotel’.
What I mean is to travel to isolated or remote areas where access to modern world is limited.
You see, the problem with human beings these days is not because we can’t live without technology.
That’s completely untrue.
Human beings have been living without much technology for most of our history. We have strive in wilderness back then, so why not today?
By exposing ourselves to such difficult conditions, we can learn to rely none other than ourselves. We learn that it takes some level of sacrifices to go through the day.
We start gather wood for fire & cooking. We gather water early in the morning to stay hydrated throughout the day. We even begin to forget the access to internet.
Guess what happens when you return? You’ll no longer see the benefits of owning things which are no longer essential to your survival. You’ve become accustom to it.
Personally, this is the best way to learn.
MY TWO CENT
While some argue this method is unnecessary. I argue, unless you’re a natural frugal person, I believe practical experience matters most and that some times, drastic actions are necessary to achieve higher level.
Once you’re accustom to a higher level of sacrifice, you’ll start living differently. You spend on things you only need & skip unnecessary spending without hesitation.
With such quality, any budget plan becomes easy to follow. And any investment becomes easier too as you are able to put more money into it.
That’s it from me. I hope you guys learn something from this. Let me know what you think in the comment below so we can start a healthy conversation about the topic.
