Are you satisfied with the Basic Needs in Life?
If you sit back and think about it, the basic needs in life are
1. Food & Water
If you find a homeless person living on the streets and study them, they can have their basic human needs met each day. They can go to a homeless shelter so they can sleep, they can go to the salvation army or another place that takes clothing donations and get clothes and they can stand in line at a soup kitchen and get their food & water.
Many people live in a place in their life where they are completely happy with their daily grind, they work at their job 9-5 and more than likely hate going to work because they are just meeting their Basic Needs in Life. Sometimes issues may arise which can be completely beyond their control where these Basic Needs cannot be met in their situation they are currently living in (which is when people become homeless.)
9 years ago, I got into the Network Marketing industry because I ‘wanted’ more than just my basic needs in life met. I wanted to not have to worry about a disaster that may happen (like losing a job or a spouse) when you live paycheck to paycheck you may be having your basic needs as a human met but you never plan for a disaster…
I ‘wanted’ to have my wants for once, I grew up in a very poor household my whole life, we lived paycheck to paycheck and all my clothing was hand me downs or donated. We ate Spam for dinner and this chipped chopped beef thing I will never forget. My mother even went out and got a job to help support the family after my father was laid off from the Cleveland Press where he was a typesetter. (he never worked again after that). We had 2 parents, 5 kids living in a 3 bedroom apartment. When my parents finally were able to buy a house, they bought a 3 bedroom house with no basement. My only brother decided to join the Navy at 18 and was gone for 5 years, I think he only came home to see us once or twice in those 5 years and when he did, he slept on the couch.
Wants and Needs are 2 very different things. I ‘wanted’ to be able to take my kids on a vacation at the drop of a hat, I ‘wanted’ to be debt free and not have to live paycheck to paycheck. I ‘wanted’ to have a beautiful home that I could be proud of and have people be impressed (my ego of course). I ‘wanted’ to start charities or donate to charities because I could and I wanted to not have to worry about where the money was coming from.
Understand that you work at a JOB to meet your basic needs in life, you work at a business or investments to meet your wants. You can NEVER meet your wants by just working at a job. You cannot become independently wealthy working at your 9-5 job.
So are you going to live the rest of your life just having your Basic Needs in life met? Do you want something different? Do you want to start meeting your wants?
I know I want to have my wants met again (I was able to meet some of them last year) then things changed and now I have to start all over again. Which I am WILLING to do because getting your ‘Wants’ met in life is going to take hard work, dedication and commitment. Anyone who tells you there is a shortcut is simply lying to you!!
Have an awesome day!
