You’re Broke Because You Want to Be

So the self-help junkie strikes again.   I got this book (the post title) from the library by Larry Winget.  If I ever want to get back to Miami I have to cut my out of control spending habit.  I stumbled upon this book, while working at the book store— Side note, normally I would have purchased it, (with my 30% discount) but that book convinced me that I shouldn’t be buying things…  So off to the library I went.

That book really made me think about all the horrible decisions I’ve made, all the money I’ve spent that I have to work to repay.  Now I feel like I don’t deserve to spend money on all the crap I usually spend money on.  I have enough stuff. I’m starting to feel overwhelmed with “things.”  Tons and Tons of useless things that are taking up my space.

Any way, if you are broke, I really think this book is a great help.  I have a new light on my financial situation.  If you really do the exercises in the book it’s the most beneficial.   I still feel like crap about having do make all these sacrifices so I can have money and live the way I want to live.  And he says I should feel like crap because of all the horrible decisions.  I should feel bad enough to want to make changes.  By golly, I think its working.
