Money: The Consequences Of Making The Right & Wrong Decisions

20221204_053558_0000.png



There's no way we can correctly spend money and this is because irrespective of our financial situations, we're always left with the consequences of opportunity costs in our lives.

This means that there are still consequences to making the right and favorable choices and this is a perfect explanation to the fact that we cannot 100% spend correctly as our inactions will always be the consequences that we might eventually suffer.

When we choose to secure tomorrow Instead of today, we might tailor all our plans and goals to make sure that the future is secured, howbeit at the expense of today. Now one might think these choices are rather illogical but the truth is that people make choices based on their knowledge, fear, and experiences and because everyone has a different financial background, experiences, and knowledge of money.

Choices Made On Sentiment Are Not Always The Best

Why?

It's difficult to make logical choices because the Sentimental aspects of our reality blind us to logic. Now when people choose to either secure the present over the future and vice versa, we cannot exactly say they're wrong, because there are still consequences to choosing one and forgoing the other.

I know it's quite true to think that we can easily choose the two, this is true, but sometimes we're never in the right capacity to do so. The truth is that even wealthy people have their limitations, we might even begin to think, it's only the consequences of being monetarily limited that are the biggest issue in life. Some people have to choose marriage over career or vice versa.

Commitment Or Money

An endless Cycle?

Whatever choices anyone decides to make, it doesn't make them foolish, but rather choosing to live in consequences of what we're always tasked with doing and sometimes we choose the bigger consequence not knowingly but because we've been wrong in our deductions and assessments.

Now, whenever people draw a scale of preferences, they're left with the opinion that they're making the right decision of course this is obviously true, but this doesn't mean that the choices we forfeited wouldn't bring their consequences. We live a life of choices and consequences. Choosing to buy an iPhone over an Android or vice versa, for example.

A Life Of Consequences

Paying The Price For Satisfaction

Now people can comfortably spend on the two flagship devices and have all their desires and fetish in one click. But the reality is that having money as the right enablement to pull this move doesn't still mean that one can split their sim cards into two. We're limited in every aspect of life. Sometimes we have to choose lesser salaries to enjoy more quality of life even if it's at the expense of a sophisticated standard of living.

So we're all making sacrifices on a daily and this is simply because we cannot have it all, irrespective of our expertise and exposure, sometimes our financial decisions tend to contradict our knowledge and this is because we might know what's right but choose to do what's favorable, because what's right might not be favorable or suitable.

Need Over Want

Stability Vs Desire

As a person who has suffered numerous limitations in life, I've discovered that I have to adjust to seeking what I need rather than what I want, this isn't because what I want is overrated or too much, but the reason is that I'm not really equipped to have what I want. Now the aspect of sacrifices comes when we go for what we need over what we truly desire.

Because since what we need would get the job done we have to live in the reprisal of knowing we never got to have what we truly desire. Money is blind, we're the eyes that (money) it sees with, this is proven in how we tend to fail or succeed despite being given a clean slate in life. At the end of the day, no one can say they've completely made the right or wrong choices because we're silently going to live with the consequences of our opportunity cost.

Economics Of Scale, Overtime

The only thing is to hope we can live with these consequences, hoping it wouldn't the degree to which these consequences are things we can live with, in the hope that we attain bigger wins.

This is to say that we should thrive or take comfort in our accomplishments, no none is ever meant to spend money 100% correctly, I think as shouldn't try hard to because we might end up missing out on the really important grey areas. No matter our enablements in life, we'd eventually suffer some limitations which might come naturally and not be dependent on our efforts in life.

I admire your analytic mind. The openness you present has a liberation quote that can serve us forever.
Choice, need, time they are all passing by.
It is up to us to decide the one that can bring a sense of unity in us.

Thank you sir, yeah, I think all of them are entwined (choice, need, time and choice) these are some of the most challenging aspect of our lives and sometimes we miss what matters most which is going for stability and what makes a mark

Now the aspect of sacrifices comes when we go for what we need over what we truly desire.

Because no one can spend this money 100 % rightly, spending on our needs rather than wants should be the greatest priority.

Our wants should be secondary...of course we can still get what we want but in my own view, it should always come when the needed things, things we cannot do without has been taking care of especially in our harsh economy today.

Have you Wondered why some rich people suddenly run into financial crisis? To some, it's because of placing their wants in top priority... and as humans, we can't ever get satisfied...we will always want almost every thing that comes our way when the money is there , both relevant and irrelevant things especially for my gender 🤦

Hahaha, well I think I completely understand you. One of the things I fear is having today and not having tomorrow, so I try to never overestimate my wants. Believe me, as a man there are lots of things I want, but trying to achieve all that would take away my position. So I think part of growing up is doing a scale of preference and actually choosing the things that would guarantee us stability.

Hehehe, you're full of wisdom ma'm. So full of it.

Yessssss....I don't joke with scale of preference. You know what? In my case, parenting taught me this 😂

When I am faced with lots of responsibilities..oh boy ..I think twice before spending.. lolz

Having today and not having tomorrow is also my greatest fear...but it's well, we will keep working hard.... believing that God will bless our hustle

you're full of wisdom ma'm. So full of it.

Hehehe, I am blushing 😂👍
Thanks for the compliments 🥰

Haaaaa, I won't wait for parenting though, this is because I think I've experienced having now and not having again with my late parents. It's a thing I'll never wish anyone. I also wish to build my own family with goals and discipline as this. E no easy.

We can't really control everything and the best we can do is take control of what we can. In my case, I can control how I spend my time and how to spend my money. Everyone has different opinions on what works best for them.

You're right, everyone has different opinion on what works best for them. I believe it's mostly about controlling what I can control as well too.

And then... They hide the tech that would make accounting for Our energy added into the system pointless. For at the foundation, money is accounting for the energy We add. If We could get the tech out of black projects, We can remove the accounting, eliminate the need for money.

I offer here what I know of one such technology:

Just playing to the same tune of my stand during a little argument with a friend yesterday. People's opinions and decisions are functions of their experiences. Just as my friend would say, "doings no get manual"

I just have a question.

Like is there any way one can spend money correctly??

Okay my point is with the rise of things I hear people say let me buy this stuff and keep for "future" use.. it's definitely not there immediate need but it's certainly going to be a need.
Will it be said as not spending correctly?😒😒

Another instance is some one picking a stuff because of the discounted rate.
Is it wrong spending?
