Let's say I'm aiming for $5,000. I tell myself I'm going to buy myself a new TV when I get there. When I DO get to $5,000, I'll say to myself "No, I'm just wasting money. I'll put myself under $5,000 if I buy a new TV" (something like that) and I'm already half way to $10,000, so I'll think to myself "Hmm.. maybe I'll just wait till I get to $10,000 before I consider wasting money". Just the look of 5 digits in my bank account gets me going. And when I do get to $10,000, same thing happens, I'll have the urge to get to $20,000. I want to SPEND money, but I can't seem to STOP SAVING. I want to treat myself more often, take my family out to dinner, things like that. I'm at $xx,xxx and I can't even "afford" to take my family out to dinner! What's wrong with me, lol.
I feel one day I'll even reach $100,000 and STILL not be content. I'm going to want to keep saving, and still for no apparent reason.
I think it's unhealthy. I can never really feel content with what I have. I hate spending. I only spend if I feel I really need something. The only thing I feel that's worthwhile to buy online is a domain name, so I can make a site that will make me more money. I never have money with me when I go out too, usually just enough money for travel and for some food. I just take my card with me and withdraw from my bank account when I REALLY need to (short on travel expenses, need food, etc.)
Sorry for the long post. Does anyone else feel this way? How can I get out of this habit?
I'd love to spend money on say, getting a product created and setting it up on Clickbank, but I just can't get around this state of mind. I need help.
