Even if you think that the accumulation of material things adds no value to your life, follow a very simple rule: disconnect from anything that you do not use regularly or that does not enrich your life.


The environment also changes with the lifestyle

Listen to the well-meaning Criticism but don't let it pull you down just because the others don't (want to) understand your unconventional plan. Because one thing is very clear: as soon as your lifestyle changes, your environment will change too. New People come into your life and long-term contacts break off. This is the natural course that changes bring.

Jim Rohn put it aptly:

"You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." – “You are the average of the five people you are closest to.”

Adjust your consumer behavior

It is the cycle of Income and consumption that ensures you never have enough to earn can. You will not break this cycle with more and more work, but with conscious consumer behavior. As much as you like to give in to your short-term cravings for consumption, you give up a little bit of freedom with every purchase, because you expenditure have to earn again.

The following advice should help you to resist your consumption cravings:

Fixed monthly debits

Besides the one-time purchase of things, there are those nasty amounts that are regularly deducted from your account. The Problem it is that these are mostly long-term contractual obligations.

Contracts are the absolute epitome of dependency. Whether a contract of employment, an insurance policy or a telephone contract - what you are sold is a supposed security, which usually has to be bought at a high price.

Examine the edition carefully

An often wrong assumption is that a service becomes cheaper the longer the contract runs. This has changed in recent years, not least because of greater competition in many markets and in Internet changed drastically. In many areas you can use a service on demand (if required) or at least as a subscription model that can be canceled monthly.

With a look at your account statements from last year, you can see which fixed amounts are regularly withdrawn from your account - contracts for mobile phones and the Internet, memberships in the gym and tax aid association, subscriptions, insurance, account fees and credit cards.

What do you really need?

Think carefully about whether you really need and want to continue to make these long-term financial commitments, and stick to the following two principles:

  1. Benefit before ownership (on demand instead of permanent availability)
  2. Flexible solutions before long-term contracts (independence instead of supposed security)

The same applies, of course, if you are thinking about concluding a new contract. Sometimes it's just small monthly amounts that aren't just big in the long run Costs cause, but bind you to a place or mentally burden you.
