It is very easy to get excited about something. In the moment you can be all about it. Whether that is buying that brand new car, or switching jobs, or really anything else that you might do on your impulse.
But that is something that must be controlled.
Sure, the idea sounds great now, and of course it does because you are thinking about the best possible scenario about how the thing in question is going to benefit you. But it really might not be so. That car actually might be overpriced, and further you will probably get bored of it soon anyways, even if it is nice, and that new job, well it also might turn out to be stressful or worse, it might actually pay you less!
Trust me, the grass is not truly always greener.
But we are always going to think it is. That is just how humans work, myself included. Recently I almost bought some in game items actually (yes I play video games as a hobby), and they were going to be decently expensive, but I had friends of mine that really checked me. They said,
“Nolan don’t buy anymore skins, they aren’t necessary. Save your money.”
It was nice to have some friends give me some feedback. That’s when I thought, man this is really something that is healthy to do. If you are really interested in something, and certainly not just for smaller purchases like mine, but for big changes like a new car, a new house, or a new job, definitely go ask a friend or someone you look up to as to whether it is a good idea.
I’m not saying that you should necessarily listen to what they say, because your friends are human as well, but I do believe that it is valuable to run your ideas past at least one person first before you go through with them. It can serve as a little check to your impulses, and this could really save you a lot of money, time, and stress.
So run your wild ideas past someone.
Maybe even a stranger. Sometimes they give the best advice too. Chiefly because they don’t know you so they don’t care about hurting your feelings.
Think about that.
With that, I am off for the day and it’s out to work for me. But I will end the post on the note of hypocrisy. I still actually bought the in game items after my friends told me not too.
lol. (laugh out loud)
But hey they were right, and I should have listened. Run it past someone.
