If you decide to buy cheaper products or services or not to buy something because you cannot afford it at the time, it is understandable. One should have priorities given their other needs. I somehow notice people who decide to rarely buy regardless their actual needs and capacity to afford some important things.
They see any expenses or extra expenses as losses, instead of an opportunity to contribute to economy, to help build others’ ventures or to simply build and strengthen social relationship.
And funnily, these people start a business! Or sell something. Hoping that others would buy. Do you think people like this would gain any success in selling? I do not think so. For example, if you do not like to buy (and collect glasses), it’s hardly to imagine that you will succeed in selling glasses.
I myself personally love and enjoy buying as much as I do selling. Both comes naturally for me. So my input and output so far is in balance. What about you?
