Stop Spending Your Money Without Thinking

My favourite phrase in life use to be, “I can’t afford it.” It did not matter what the request was or how much I would have enjoyed it, I was conditioned to just blurt out, “I can’t afford it.” It was kind of a knee jerk reaction, someone would invite me on a trip, and I would just say, “I can’t afford it.” Regardless of whether or not I could afford whatever was being presented to me.
