Written by Ashton Deroy: The worst thing I hear people express is “I am too lazy to do that.” It is especially concerning when these people move in to commitments, spending money & setting up goals. If you are one of those people who think it is a miracle just because you got out of bed this morning, then this blog probably can save you a lot of pains in the A**. Here are some things for you to avoid spending your $$$ on dumb***!
The nature of a gym membership is you pay a bi-weekly fee to gain access to a gym, their services and exercise equipment. Anyone who works in this industry will tell you the fitness life style starts in their facilities! “What a load of crap!?!” You don’t pay for the gym membership and magically become motivated to workout.
Deadly Appeal: Sales reps act like a gym membership is a cure for obesity & laziness.
When I had one of these memberships it was literally because working out at home after work would wake my entire house up. Exercise begins with self-management. Doing push ups, sit ups, squats and yoga. All of which you can do aided by a video, not expensive gym equipment. If you can’t even hit play on an exercise video though… Don’t bother with the gym membership!
Avoiding this will save you about $70 a month or a $100 cancellation fee.
It doesn’t matter if you are starting an E-Commerce shop from home or signing to work with Avon. Selling takes a lot of work, rejection & motivation! So maybe a home business is not for you… The facts are most of them do not break even, create web presence & connect with contacts.
Deadly appeal: It is appealing to think you can make $$$ from home before you even get in your morning shower.
Sadly though if you don’t intend to create an aggressive sales or marketing strategy you are better off not doing this. So much for opportunity, when it comes to sales based businesses. You are way better off sticking to needs based products like Insurance, Web design & graphics.
Avoiding this could save you $30 a month minimum.
Why does smoking come in this list? Well what this doesn’t share with the others is this is one thing you don’t usually approach to make your life better! However the deadly appeal greatly targets sedentary people.
Deadly appeal: Smoking does not require a lot of effort & comes with social acceptance.
The really bad downside is,
According to the open U.S. Medical journal smoking & a sedentary lifestyle is linked to cognitive deterioration as well as a great deal of medical issues. However there are no long term benefits to smoking so why start? Or why continue? This is the one thing on the list you rarely approach in an effort to make your life better. Unless you are one of those idiots that believe they are treating their mental health with a bong!
(despite evidence piling up that smoking adversely affect cognitive function.)
Quitting smoking could save you $1,500 a year.
