The 5 Things You Actually Need and Deserve in Life

What we want, and what we actually need.

Taking full advantage of Money Earned through Money Saved requires you to go a step further by learning how to shift your mindset from consumerism to frugalism. You see, it is only through largely letting go of consumerist habits and attitudes that you can begin to find more satisfaction in what you save than what you spend.

Work hard, spend smart

We are also not saying that you can’t indulge in luxuries and your wants, we are simply saying if you want to reach financial freedom you must work hard, spend smart, and live within your means. So, what are the 5 things you actually need and deserve and why should you care?

1. Food/Water

When you are hungry, or do not have easy access to water, all other desires tend to fade into the background. You don’t just need food and water to live, you need it to develop and thrive, and to allow your body and brain to work to its fullest. You need these things first if you want to partake in other pursuits.

2. Shelter

The next thing you need/deserve is shelter. Here we define shelter as a place out of the elements where you can call home. Somewhere that you can stay warm and dry and be comfortable.  Again, there are a great number of people within our own country who cannot say they have access to consistent shelter.

3. Safety

Exposure to consistent violence and uncertainty literally changes your brain. Children learn skills necessary to survive their unsafe environment, and translate those skills into other situations as they grow up.

4. Healthcare

This one is a controversial topic in this country. However, no matter what your stance is on who should pay for healthcare, if someone is sick then they deserve to have access to treatment options. Healthcare is something that is a need and is deserved by all.

5. Worth

Worth refers to having a meaning in your life, feeling like you’ve accomplished something, and having a reason to be here.  Worth is fulfillment. People obtain feelings of worth in many ways. Some feel it through religion. Others, through their work. Typically, worth is the feeling that we are making a difference in the world, no matter how small.
