The Intrinsic Propensity To Spend Money

in LeoFinance2 years ago


Spending is inevitable because living is a certainty. Some of the things we have to do in life to survive are mostly influenced by the need to keep living. Either we live well, lavishly, or meagerly, we still need to spend. Even if we decide not to work, we'll still need to spend.

So, the main reason why we're working irrespective of career, profession or passion is to spend. It's the ultimate endgame to every one of our strivings in life.

However, no one likes to admit that they love money and this is simply because we like to think our passion is fuelled by a greater cause in life. Nevertheless, we cannot attribute our drive to the ephemerality of money, else we'll tire.

Too little, Too Much

We like permanence, consistency, and solidity and this is why we often place passion before money.

Nevertheless, spending money isn't a bad thing, however, it makes us feel bad because we're giving out too much and taking in so little, things like inflation or the diabolic of marketing can make us feel bad about spending, but the most important thing that makes people feel bad about spending is not having enough.

Everyone in life wants to attain a stage of affordability, a stage where they don't cringe when they hear or see figures ($$$).

This means that one's financial strength is proven by how much one can afford. There's joy in spending only if there's the guarantee that you can still afford another endless spending.

Attaining The Peak Of Reasonable Affordability

However, we become apprehensive, scared, or jittery when we begin to see red in our reserves. In reality, financial freedom is about attaining the peak of reasonable affordability while giving in less and getting more. In the world at the moment, the people who are earning less and putting in more effort are more than those who are putting in little and earning more.

The percentage dwarfs themselves. So when effort supersedes reward it's hard to attain mental satisfaction even if we've gotten value from our purchase.

This means that people need to have more money to be happy spending. There's the satisfaction attained when we spend, but the world isn't tailored this way because the system is unfair.

Passion & Reward

It's always difficult to see passion over reward and this is because passion is fuelled by reward, we might not be making money from a venture but having the belief that the future might be slightly better is a non-monetary incentive we gain by having passion.

Constant failures might affect the zeal for passion and this is why we need small portions of success in a pool of failure to make us continuously see light at the end of the tunnel.

Like I said earlier, everyone should naturally love the idea of spending, because spending rightly forestalls accomplishment and progress. But in a world where more people are unemployed, hungry, and wrecked by broken dreams spending money to live is a nightmare.

Happiness: How Much Is It Worth?

The happiness or sadness of many people in the world is tied to their monthly income, it goes ahead to affect their productivity or drive towards life.

Our lives are hugely affected by how much we make because how well we live proves how far we've come. While people do not like to express their love for money, it's inbuilt, like a demon within. A fiery monster with a crazy desire to make money by all means.

However, this feistiness might just be driven by a harmless desire. For example, to feed one's children. At the end of the day, the urge to spend is there, because when we cannot, we stand a chance of extinction. So, we often quell or take care of this by doing some of the most questionable things in life

Too me lack of money too spend is the root of all evil, never heard of already rich people doing money rituals which is predominant in nigeria

Well, that's why we need to establish a balance between lack and plenty.

Having power to spend as much as you can always good but will know is not possible and that’s why balance is very important

No human should even get enough money to spend as much as they please because human wants are insatiable. Thanks for coming through bro.

I strongly agree with this because it makes them look like God

Thanks for the curation

It's hard to stop spending and money can't guarantee you happiness. However, money can help when it comes to certain goals. I think the way to avoid impulsive buying for me is to write it down and check back in a few days if I still want the item. If I do at that point, I will buy it.

You're right about avoiding impulsive spending. One of the things I've learned is that keeping records is something that keeps us tethered to balance. Well some people have tailored their lives to inevitably find happiness when they have money, I wonder how they do that

There's joy in spending only if there's the guarantee that you can still afford another endless spending.

Nobody can afford endless spending - but some can definitely afford a lot more than others. It's all about not spending too much on anything.

Well, some people can afford endless spending, very few people in control of the world's wealth can, but basically for us that cannot it's important to create a balance. Thanks a million

This is so true @josediccus
The scale is imbalanced when it comes to passion and money….. but I believe when one channels passion right and put in structure, wealth is attainable but then again it’s hard sha.

Haha thank you, I think till eternity, that scale will always remain imbalanced and we'll keep being in denial when we say we prefer money over passion. Deep down it's complicated

Excellent! Thanks for this beautiful post.

There is this natural joy in making money and even in spending it. That's why you see people spraying money in the air in occasions and they are very happy and fulfilled because they can afford it and still have more in reserve. People only get scared of spending when they don't have the guarantee of making another one or when the reserve is almost empty.
