Most personal development teachers, including Gary Vaynerchuck, agree that unmaterialistic people have high chances of succeeding. This idea made me think deeply and research about materialism. I then realized that becoming unmaterialistic is beneficial because of the following reasons.
- You stop being scared to follow your passion
There are high chances you’ll be broke for a while if you follow your passion because it might take long before you monetize it. For this reason, it will be hard to follow your passion if you are materialistic as you won’t withstand being broke and unable to buy things.
However, if you become unmaterialistic, you will bravely follow your passion because you can afford to be broke, and you can also live with little material possessions while monetizing your passion.
- You invest in productive ventures
A lot of us claim we don’t have money for investing, but the funny thing is that we have lots of money for buying expensive gadgets. Our obsession with material possessions has resulted in us prioritizing them. Today, people can spend $ 1,000 on a TV set but still claim they don’t have money for starting a business.
If you end your obsession with material possessions, you’ll realize that you have a lot of money to invest. Trust me, the money you spend on buying the latest gadgets is enough to start a million-dollar company.
- You stop comparing yourself to others
People who love comparing themselves to others are materialistic because their main basis of comparison is usually material possessions. They compare their friends’ stuff with theirs to determine their social positions.
For this reason, you’ll lose interest in comparing yourself if you are not excessively concerned with material possessions.
- You become less worried
If you become unmaterialistic, you worry less because you won’t be attached to too many temporary things. The temporariness of material possessions makes materialistic people worry about their possessions becoming obsolete. Besides this, materialistic people worry more because they often think about the possibility of losing their possessions.
- You become grateful
Materialistic people are seldom grateful because they are never satisfied with what they have. They are so busy looking for the next thing to buy that they fail to be thankful for what they have.
Therefore, if you become unmaterialistic you’ll always be thankful because you’ll focus on what you have, and not what to buy.
Avoid prioritizing material things and you’ll be one step ahead because you will bravely go your own way, and you’ll have extra money to invest in your dream. Besides this, you‘ll attain inner peace because you’ll stop comparing yourself with others, and you’ll be less worried. Lastly, you will be happier because you’ll be grateful for what you have.
‘If I convince you that you don’t need shit, you will be off to the races. If you could unmaterialistic yourself, you will be fu?king far.’ – Gary Vaynerchuk, American Entrepreneur, Author, Speaker, TV personality

The Top 6 Powerful Meditations of the Unbounded Thinker
I love spending my time meditating on life, and I often note down the thoughts that pop into my mind while meditating. Today, I’ll welcome you into my meditations by sharing some of these thoughts with you.
1.Meditations on Thoughts
The first thing that created everything was thought. Creation could not have happened without the ability to think. Our thoughts can thus create worlds, and we should master them to ensure they only create good worlds for us.
2.Meditations on Infinite Intelligence/God as Our Father and Mother
As the mother, she is constantly providing all creatures with everything they need to survive, and as a father, he hardens all creatures by giving them challenging situations that force them to grow into their full potential.
3.Meditations on Suffering
We suffer not because of our experiences but because of our thoughts regarding our experiences. A thoughtless person – if he exists – seldom suffers because he focuses on the awareness of the experience instead of what he wants or doesn’t want about the experience.
4.Meditations on The Lack of Inner Peace
We seldom attain inner peace because we are always thinking about the future. We never relax and focus on the now. When we focus on the now, we’ll attain inner peace because the present moment is always okay.
5.Meditations on the Intuition
Ancient folks knew many things without researching. They knew about poisonous, medicinal, and edible plants. They knew about the stars, energy fields, the third eye, how our emotions affect the body, and so on.
Their primary source of knowledge was their intuition. We, the modern people, have lost our intuitive powers because we over-focus on acquiring material possessions. This focus results in the attachment to our possessions hence causing emotions, such as fear and worry, which suppress our intuitive abilities.
6. Meditations on Our Short Term Existence on Planet Earth and What We Must do About It
I just realized that time is flying. Soon we’ll all leave the earth and allow other souls to experience the physical universe. Soon, our bodies we’ll decay, and we’ll be bones. We’ll be gone forever, and we’ll never experience our current life form again.
For this reason, we must appreciate all our moments and everyone in our lives. As well, we must use the only opportunity we have to exploit our physical powers and live to our full potential.
These are some of the things I often think about when I am alone. I believe deep thinking is more reliable in providing us with enlightening knowledge than reading books written by mainstream historians, scientists, and philosophers, whose main aim is to drown us into delusions and prevent us from knowing the TRUTH.
The Statistics of the Dead and Why I Choose to be Grateful
If more than 150,000 people die every month, and today none of your friends or family members is dead, then you have a big reason to smile.’ – Sadhguru, Indian Mystic.
Before falling in love with esoteric philosophy, I used to be sad and angry about nothing. My focus on material possessions and the social status prevented me from noticing the infinite blessings I had.
I worried about not having more possessions than my friends, and I was angry at life because some people – who I thought were happy – despised me. This crap ended after I stumbled upon the above quote, meditated on it, and researched about the world’s death rates.
I discovered that more than 2,000 people die every day in car crashes, and about 1 million people die in road crashes every year. Besides car crashes, more than 2.5 million people die from diseases every year, and in total, about 40 million people die every year.
Moreover, I realized that the world has lost about 30 million people from January 1st, 2019 to July 15th, 2019.
These statistics enlightened me that more than 5,000 people die every day, and therefore, more than 10,000 people mourn every day. It then dawned on me that I am a blessed person who must be happy every day because all my family members are alive.
Again, the death statistics reminded me of how stupid I had been: I always worried about lacking replaceable material possessions instead of being thankful that the most precious people in my life were alive. People who are more willing to help me than the rest of the world
I thus shifted my focus from worry to being grateful for the amazing irreplaceable people I had; the only magnificent beings who can go out of their way to help me.
For this reason, I smile every day when I wake up in the morning and fail to receive death news about my family members. I know I will lose my loved ones one day, but in this period that they are alive, I know I have a BIG reason to be happy and thankful for the mysterious grace that keeps them alive.
May the Infinite Intelligence bless all your family members, and enlighten you about their importance in your life so that you love and be grateful for them.
May Peace of Mind be With You.
