No one can deny that the lifestyle of the rich and the famous is appealing to all. Unfortunately, not all of us are rich and famous. It is a common misconception that in order to live a luxurious lifestyle, one has to have a luxurious income. While a luxurious income would certainly help, it is not necessary in order to live luxuriously. By that I mean that while your income may not reach six or seven figures like you might prefer, you can still live luxuriously on your income. How is that possible? Think about this: you can have anything you want, just not everything you want.
So, let’s say you make $30,000/year. You can choose to allot a certain percentage of your income towards getting anything your heart desires. You’ve seen the people who live in a shack but have the most gorgeous camping RV you’ve ever seen. Those people understand the concept of not having everything, but getting the one thing they do want. They, in their own way, are living luxuriously and doing so on a modest income. The same can be true for anyone.
Perhaps living luxuriously to you suggests travel. Well then, that’s your something. The one thing that you want is what you can work toward and get-even on your income. There are beautiful options for getaways in many cities, states and countries. Perhaps you want to travel to beautiful golfing communities. So maybe instead of having a really nice car, you take a trip to a beautiful Utah golf community a few times a year. Or, if living luxuriously to you means having a nice car, perhaps you cut back on the golf and put that money towards car payments. Indeed, living luxuriously has a different definition for everyone. What is important to some is not that important to others which is why living luxuriously is really a matter of finding out what that means to you – and making it happen.
Traveling to a Utah golf community or driving a really nice RV are only some very basic examples of the idea of having anything, just not everything. Many people believe that eating at nice restaurants is the most luxurious way to go through this life. If that is the case, more power to them. You may not need an incredibly nice house or the most fabulous car in the world, but if you get the one thing that brings joy to your heart, then you will be living luxuriously-regardless of your income.
