But, how else are you going to start your dream?
Money flows, comes and goes. You have to direct it towards the things that you want in order for them to give back.
Sometimes, things only have value when you have put your money towards them. You can make your lazy, stubborn lizard brain care about things by using your rational human mind to put your money where your mouth is.
Spending money means commitment.
Spending money is only a waste if you quit.
Spending money is only a waste if you never intended to chase what you send it towards.
Spend your money.
Then chase it down again.
