Spontaneous purchase: the way to overcome it
One of our great goals is to enjoy a powerful financial freedom, which allows us to enjoy an opulent life.
Millions of people around the globe have achieved that desire and we can achieve it too. The problem is that sometimes our daily behavior delays the achievement of financial goals. Having a SPONTANEOUS PURCHASE is a very frequent behavior, which can seriously harm us if it extends through time. Worst of all, we can behave well with money all month long, but all of a sudden we buy something we don’t really need. Fortunately that behavior can be controlled through easy and realistic ideas.
Tips to control the way you buy
The mood is directly related to what we buy and how we do it. The key is to control the compulsive behaviors that lead us to make a SPONTANEOUS PURCHASE that only makes us lose money.
-The first thing you should do before acquiring something for which you don’t feel safe is to seriously ask yourself if you really need it. If the answer is No, don’t do it.
–Never buy anything if you feel sad, anxious, discouraged or nervous. Do something else like visiting social networks, going for a walk or listening to music.
–Follow a strict budget. It will be hard at first, but then you will get used to spending your money responsibly. This behavior brings you many benefits, because you have control over your finances.
-Go shopping accompanied by someone who knows you well. Choose a family member or friend who knows about your behavior and can “control” you when you feel like making a SPONTANEOUS PURCHASE.
-Try to detect if you have a cumulative behavior. This happens when someone buys many products in the same category, never uses them but still keeps them over time. It is very likely that these people will make an illogical and irrational SPONTANEOUS PURCHASE.
-Seek professional help. If you have been having financial problems for many years due to your spontaneous purchases, do not hesitate to consult a psychologist who knows how to guide you in this problem.
SPONTANEOUS PURCHASE can become a serious problem if you don’t take control of your behavior. Keep in mind that you must work on yourself to find out what drives you to buy in this way.
Once you detect the reasons for your conduct it is easier to find the solution. Recognizing this problem is the first step to the solution.
