I'm sure you've been there before and maybe even done that without money. Don't get me wrong, it's a great feeling to be able to do things on your own and do them well, but sometimes you really need some help if you want to do it the right way.
Let's say you've been dreaming of going to Disney World for years, but have never gotten around to doing it because of cost or because you just don't have the funds. What would you do? Well, you could find some ways to pay for it, but chances are you're not going to find a way to pay for it unless you actually know what you're doing.
Would you find a way to pay for it if you knew you had this dream? Probably not. So you're probably going to have to make up your own dream and use your own creativity to make it happen. Here's a couple of ideas:
Spend your money on friends and family members- One of the best ways to put money in your pocket is to give gifts to family and friends. This way you don't have to spend money on an expensive gift. You could also buy a car for someone else, put a down payment on a house, pay for a trip to an international event or anything else you can think of. There are thousands of ways to put money in your pocket.
Keep a journal-Keep a journal and fill it with fun and interesting things that you like to do. If you write about it, you'll have a visual of what you've accomplished in your life. It's like the saying goes, you can't see the forest for the trees. Sometimes it takes images to remember the exciting parts of life.
Teach someone how to do something- Another great way to make money is to teach someone how to do something. Not only does it give you something to do, but it gives them something to do as well. For example, if you want to learn how to play an instrument, you can teach a friend or a family member how to play it. If you teach someone how to ride a bike, you make two people happy and you make money from that as well. Even though you may not get rich from teaching, it's something you will definitely enjoy doing.
Buy a special occasion gift-Just because you're spending money doesn't mean you have to spend it on what's expected by society. For example, do you have a college birthday coming up, an anniversary, or an anniversary of your birthday? You can still go with something that's great for yourself and someone special.
