Desires Help Highlight Your Consumerism

Every day we are inundated by our money enemies. It can be surprising how insidious they are and how deep they burrow into our psyche. So, how do you measure their incursion? You do this by asking yourself, "What do I want?"

For example, take a few minutes and describe your ideal home. What did you describe?

Was it made out of brick? Did it have 4, 5, or 6 bedrooms? Did it have a big back yard? Did it have a dinning room? Did it have a large kitchen with an island in it? Was it 2 stories? Did it have a large master suite? Did it have a jacuzzi? Did it have a 2 or 3 car garage? Did it have automatic garage doors? Did it have a family room?

Now that you have your ideal home described, let me ask you why you did not describe a cave? Or a tree house? Or a boat? Or an RV? What has driver who says what your ideal house is?

This exercise can be applied to all sorts of things. What is your ideal mode of transportation? Did you happen to describe a fancy name brand car? Or did you come up with something new or different?

Remember, your money enemies want to make you desire things that they sell. When you want something, be sure to check deep inside to see if it is something you want, or something your money enemies want you to want.
