One of the best things I love about meeting people are the stories they have to tell and the fact that there is always a lesson to learn from their experiences.
Whether that’s getting an insider tip from the taxi driver picking me up from a foreign airport on the best place to experience some local cuisine or hearing the inspiring journey of how someone built a small side project into a money-making passive income stream!
The content of what many people tend to share with others however, often revolves around something materialistic.
That ultra HD TV or latest electronic gadget you recently bought in an online sale.
Your ever growing collection of clothes and latest designer items.
Expensive accessories such as your new flashy car or jewellery pieces.
There’s nothing wrong with this stuff (especially if you’ve got the spare cash to splash out!), but immediate gratification from the purchase of material things only lasts so long and I believe there are much better ways to spend your hard earned cash.
Ways that will be meaningful to the wellbeing of your existence and see you collect memories, which in turn, will provide you with some incredible stories to share with the world.
You don’t have an infinite amount of money, so here are a few areas where we should spend more money on:
Life can be filled with a collection of materialistic things that you inevitably become attached to…
packed with endless and lasting memories, which are colourful and bursting with feelings of joy and gratitude.
Remember… a mountain of experiences is infinitely richer than a mountain of stuff.
What will your life be a collection of?
