Feel uncomfortable at least once a day: Widen your circle

Ever hear that if you want to improve your life, you should review your circle of friends and acquaintances and widen the circle?

So let’s say you want to make more money, but all of your friends pretty much make the same amount as you, and you all spend the same way.

What you have to do is not give up your current friends, but widen your circle to talk to people who make more money, or have more interesting ideas on how to get money.

It can be anyone, such as reading about …

The point is not just to encourage you to read their blogs (they may not all be to your taste), but it is to make you feel uncomfortable.

If they make you uncomfortable with your situation (the way that I feel when I read what they’re up to), then it’s a good thing.

You don’t need to copy them at all, you can find your own path while copying their (good) behaviours to help you change.

It makes you realize that even the most so-called impossible things are possible, and it pushes you to do something different with your life if you are unhappy with it.

The greatest thing of all, is that these people are so accesible online — they can interact with you at any time you want (and they want).

You don’t even have to necessarily interact with them either if you don’t want to.

Just read their blogs and read comments from other equally-as-inspiring readers, and you may realize that you’re more interested in than you gave yourself credit for.

This doesn’t even have to apply to money, it can be career-related, artsy blogs, travel blogs, food blogs, anything that makes you think: Hey.. she/he did that, that looks cool, I wonder what I could do!

In fact, it doesn’t even have to apply to talking to people per se.

Read biographies of interesting people, read their works, watch films from other countries in other languages, or watch documentaries on how other people live in other countries.

Widen your circle in any way that makes you feel uncomfortable and be challenged a little.

If you always stick with what’s safe and comfortable, you’ll never know what you can achieve.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using TheBudgetingTool.com. I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
