Ah, the luxury handbag. It’s a total status symbol. It’s a way to make your outfit instantly pop – even if you’re sporting sweats and a cat t-shirt. Fancy handbags announce you’re there and you’re there to be counted. They say power, they say respect, they say style. They fill the room with words while you remain silent. It’s a total lifestyle design accessory.
Want one? Right, you’re saying. Five thousand or so dollars for a bag just doesn’t make sense when you’re trying to design your life. We get it. So, does that mean you can’t ever enjoy going out on the town with a little black purse in tow? Nope – not at all. Sure, there are always those knock-off bags available. But, come on. When it’s a knock-off, you wear it knowing it’s a knock-off. You slump more. You don’t command respect. You’re somewhat embarrassed. Guess what?
There’s a different way to get your hands on a luxury handbag. These days, you can rent them online for a week or a month. You can enjoy all the status of a luxury handbag for a fraction of the price. Granted: you’ve gotta return your bag and say goodbye. That’s sad. But still, you can have the experience of sporting a $5K handbag around if you want.
So, is this a post sponsored by these handbag rental companies? Nope, not at all. What this is all about is thinking differently. Approaching things with a different frame of mind. Maybe there’s something you want that you think you so can’t have for whatever reason. We say: if there’s a way to sport a designer handbag around town without paying the full price, there’s a way to get what you want even when you think there’s no way you can get it.
Think about one thing in your life that you really, really want. Now, get out a paper and pen and start writing down some ways you can get it, or part of it, soon. You’ll be surprised by what you find. You know that expression, “shoot for the moon and you’ll land in the stars”? People say it because it’s true. Go after what you want. Why? The results are a whole lot better than shrinking back and taking no for an answer.
Key Takeaway for Everyone:
We waste so much time not doing things when we could be going after the things we really want. We fool ourselves into believing things aren’t possible when they absolutely are. Put in some elbow grease and start enjoying the awesome results of your hard work and creative thinking.
Key Takeaway for Real Estate Investors:
Think you can’t invest in real estate? Think you can’t buy a certain property? Think you just don’t have the cash or the credit? Think again. When you have the will, you can find the way. Get creative. Talk to experts. Talk to friends. Read. Learn. Shoot for the stars.
