This short episode is all about why it’s so important to invest in yourself, especially when it comes to anything that’ll make your life easier, eliminate friction or help in your personal growth. And how to recognise the difference between impulse buying that gives you short term pleasure and spending on something that’ll keep you happier for the longer run.
A few months ago, I invested in a ring light. It wasn’t even expensive, but I had kept putting off the purchase for the longest time because I kept wondering if it would be a “waste”. But when I finally did get it, it helped me create much more video content than I had before because I was not dependent on daylight anymore.
Whenever inspiration strikes now, I can just sit down and start recording. The quality of my IGTV live videos and online workshops have also gone up noticeably, and this motivates me to do them more often.
Now looking back, I’m like, “duh! why didn’t I buy this gadget sooner?” Haha
This is just one example of the things I’ve hesitated to invest in at first, but after I did, it contributed to my life in multiple ways and paid off significantly. Mindfully investing in yourself creates a domino effect of opportunities and opens up your world. And I just had to talk about this on my show!
Bottomline – if it will bring you more peace of mind, give you more time freedom, make your work smooth, result in self-improvement and knowledge upgrade, help you build meaningful connections to benefit you in the longer run…don’t hesitate to spend. Investing in your present life, your present self is just as important as saving up for your future.

“Holding on to money that tightly, with fear that more will not come, is as unhealthy as just impulse shopping or impulse buying. Just splurging, splurging, splurging on unnecessary things which are only going to bring you joy for a moment. They’re both equally unhealthy. So be mindful… It’s a very empowering, freeing feeling because you’re not stuck to that fear anymore.“Susmitha Veganosaurus – The Feel Good Factor Podcast

I taught this online workshop a few weeks ago for the first time and the response it received was so fulfilling that I got super inspired to create an even more in depth version of it.
