Perception of Money

I’ve found this crazy thing that has happened to me over the years.

It’s really weird.

It’s hard to explain but I’m going to give it my best shot.

You know that little dot that we put in between the dollars and the cents?

That little dot called a decimal point?

Well I think that it moves.

I know, I know It’s crazy!

You see, the more money I seem to be able to make over the years the more it seems to move.

Year ago before I worked for someone else, when I was just an employee, for me to spend $50 on something was LOTS of MONEY!

I may have even put that certain item off for a few weeks to buy it.

Then when I became a salon owner I was handling a lot more money and bigger volumes of it, so $50 wasn’t as big as it once was.

I now saw $500 as something that I may put off for a few weeks, but that $50 item I probably wouldn’t think twice about purchasing it.

Then as time went on I started noticing that the damn little dot was moving again – this time I’d spend $500 on a something for the salon in a heart beat, but might take a bit more time to think about that $5000 item.

It’s really such a bizzare thing to notice.

Now I bet you think that I am going to say that I would spend $5000 in a heart beat. But I’m not. I might spend it in 5 heartbeats, though! Joking!

(Not Joking…with certain items, anyway)

But now I see $50,000 and it’s just another number.

I can make a decision over a $50,000 item pretty damn quickly.

Especially when it comes to diamonds – one time when I was in Vegas (that sounds as thought I was about to say, “this one time at band camp..”) I walked into a jewelry store just to “look” and an hour later ended up walking back to my hotel with a $2000 deposit put down on 2 diamond rings to work out how to get the other $30,000 transferred from my Australian bank account to the USA so I could purchase these rings.

Two hours after that I walked out of the store with over $60,000 USD of new Diamonds on my fingers!

They were on sale and I couldn’t help myself!

If you’ve read my other blog post about me being a tight arse – I know that this totally contradicts it, but you’ll also notice that I said in there that jewelry wasn’t something I was tight about.

But anyway, my point is that the more money that you make the more you are going to start to notice that little decimal point move over to the other zero’s.

What would it mean for YOU if you could be making MORE MONEY so that YOU start to see the decimal point move?

Would it mean that you could purchase certain items in a heartbeat, that you have been saving up for recently?

I know some of my students have been able to purchase things for their salon that they never dreamed of.

Some have been able to renovate their salon and pay cash for it.

I know others have finally been able to go on the holiday they have always wanted to.

One of the biggest things that I have helped a few students with is being able to buy their first property, buy a farm, buy an investment property – all of which seemed like it would NEVER happen.

It did happen because for them, that damn little decimal point moved over to let the extra zero’s into their bank account.

So, what would that mean for you, if you were in that position?

Feel free to comment below with your answer as I would love to read them.
