I’m an engineer and I want to build a house. I’m excited. I want to do this. But I’m scared. I’m scared I don’t know anything about what I’m building. I’m scared I won’t have enough money to do it right. I’m scared I will ruin my life and the lives of my family. I’m scared I will be so happy I don’t even notice when I don’t do it the way I want to do it.
Im scared, but I know Im a good kid. Even if I didnt have any money to do this, it wouldnt be too bad.
I also have a project for which I don’t make much money. I have a project for which I do nothing. And I’m scared. I want to do something else. I want to build a boat structure.
It’s pretty sad that the majority of our life’s greatest joys (and our goals) are tied up with our money! We need to stop thinking about money to achieve all the things we want to achieve. We need to stop thinking about money to pursue the things we want to pursue.
Not to be a downer, but when we stop thinking about money to achieve something, we become less likely to pursue that thing. It’s like the movie “The Sting.” When the character played by Tom Cruise goes to the dentist, he says he’s going to save money, but he doesn’t. He’s not going to spend his money on other dentist’s work or on a “good” or “bad” cleaning. He’s going to save money to buy a better dentist.
We like to joke that we’re going to save money to buy a better dentist and use it to pay off our debts. The problem with this is that we don’t actually save any money. We spend money on our debt, but because we don’t save any money, those debts become more important than we are.
This is one of those classic ideas that goes over like a lead balloon. What do you do when your debt becomes more important than your health? I have trouble seeing how anyone could say that they are doing anything but buying their debt.
While we’re on the topic of debt, I think it’s important to consider how debt actually impacts our lives. It’s often the debt that eats into our savings, and it’s just not worth the risk. So why are we still doing it? I think it’s because it’s such a fun game to play. The debt game is so important because it’s the only game we have, and in most cases, we don’t even know the rules. It’s just fun.
In this game, debt is just one of the options available to you. You can buy your debt and then spend it on anything and anything else. This includes stocks, shares, etc. These same people will be willing to sell you debt if you choose to sell your debt. You can also get debt from other people, but they are not required to help you out when you choose to sell your debt. The only requirement is that you must be interested in selling your debt.
