For example, you find a specialized training or service that really fits your needs. It may be exactly what you need to succeed. You sign up for a free trial but then can not resist the urge to cancel before you're billed. You might be right on the cusp of a break-through with this information, but you'd rather not pay a recurring fee - even if it's only $27 to $49.
Instead of giving the program a chance to see if it will work for you, you drop out after 6 days because the 7 day trial is about to expire.
Then you go out and spend $100 that month on shiny "Flavor of the Month" WSOs that each take you in a complete different direction than what's right for you. Or you go to the bar and drop $100 on beers and shots of Tequilla.
Some people will spend money on everything else, but the temptation to drop out before being charged is too strong to resist.
It's completely irrational. You're not getting over, you're cheating yourself. You will never succeed if that's your mentality.
You're not being "slick" by signing up for the trial period and then dropping out. You're not saving any money, you're just wasting your time. You're jumping from one thing to the next without giving yourself a chance.
Now, I'm not saying this about every program out there - I'm talking about the good ones that really fit your needs.
You could be making far more than the small membership fee, but you prefer to be cheap just to avoid any recurring charges.
That's just dumb.
