Increasing your frugality can get you to a life you want to live! Be happier, more successful and satisfied with these 7 tips from a popuar book "7 Habits of Highly Frugal People". It's all about chaging your outlook and attitude!
Be proactive. Blaming external influences for your problems is immature, and will not get you anywhere. Instead take responsibility for your actions and feelings. That will get you to look reality in the face, and take control of your finances and life overall.
Adapt a Win Win mentality. Don't compare your life with others. If your friends bough an expensive car, or went on a Euro trip, they've either earned it or are hiding behind a mountain of debt. You win by being financially smart, and there is always time to do and get the things you want, later. There's enough for everyone to go around (win win)!
Sharing ideas with like minded people can help you get to your goal faster and easier. Befriend successful people and learn from them, or join a frugal living blog, for example.
Communicate. You have other people in your life such as family and friends, so you have to consider their place in your mission to frugal living, talk it out in order to not have misunderstandings and to have everyone on board.
Begin everything with the end in mind. This technique is a helpful motivational tool. Imagine where you're going with a certain task, action, and why. After having a clear picture of what is the end result, it will be easier to prioritize your budget as well as other things in your life.
And finally, increase your overall health! In order to have a clear mind and a strong body to keep up with the above, you need to take care of your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.
