“Learn how to pay full price for everything.”
I read this recently and haven’t stopped thinking about it since.
If I’m always looking for a deal, clipping coupons, or waiting for a “sale”, my brain literally rewires itself for SCARCITY (there’s never enough!).
If I learn to pay full price, my brain operates from ABUNDANCE.
Further, paying full price REWARDS the service providers and businesses I choose to invest in. It tells them, “I value what you do and want to acknowledge it.”
(In a few cases, I’ll even pay MORE than what the service costs because the person providing it did such a good job.)
That’s not to say I want to pay EXTRA for everything.
It just means I want to come to the market from a place of ABUNDANCE, rather than scarcity.
ALWAYS ENOUGH vs. NEVER ENOUGH.
Two very different ways of living.
