I often find myself overvaluing the things that worth quite a bit in terms of the price I paid. The more money and effort I need to acquire those things the higher it is in my list of valuable things and because of this I find it hard to part with things that are expensive even though they don’t bring me any more value or joy and that’s when this 10/10 material possessions Theory comes in let’s start the exercise and it’s gonna be practical so these down ten of the most expensive material possession you purchase from the last decade so these are my personal examples and they’re arranged based on the price I paid from higher amount to lower amount number one will be my university degree $28k even though knowledge or education is not really a material possession but if you’re kind of like buying the certificate then it’s pretty much tangible and the cost a lot number two will be my camera gear they cost $1.9k third would be my laptop at $1.5k.

It’s a place for me to learn and grow with you at the same time. Number seven will be the trips with my friends to Vietnam, Krabi, Phuket and Langkawi. Number eight will be exposing myself to miracle morning routine and doing it almost every day. Number nine will be discovering minimalism which led me to what I am doing currently spreading what I’ve learned to you guys. Lastly will be all the knowledge I learned from the books that I’ve read, whether is it self-awareness, self-reflection, marketing or even building a business.

You can see they are mainly travel or event experiences because that’s what I truly cherish the most spending time with my loved ones and the only physical things that I can say will be the books. Just like what The Minimalists mentioned, both lists might not even overlay with the same things if you are someone who likes experience more than owning things you will start to realize that the things that bring you the most value are not the most expensive things you own and they might not even be a physical item itself. In fact, for me I realized that I don’t even enjoy owning those expensive items because they kind of make me want more instead of feeling satisfied with what I have but luckily I managed to sell most of them away because I see no point hoarding them just because they are expensive however I still have to give credit to some of the stuff I own for example my camera gear or my phone they definitely give me a lot of value documenting precious moment in those various experiences. The same thing goes for my laptop by creating those videos on my channel and spreading values to you guys it’s easy for me to say that I enjoy experiences more than material possession but I believe that many of us to enjoy buying the things that we always wanted I totally understand how it feels because I do have a list of things that I want buy and I think it’s fine if it’s done deliberately within your means and align the goal that you’re trying to achieve and this theory can be explained with the help of the overrated phrase “less is more” for example I’ll ask myself is it worth 40 hours a week slaving on things that I’m not passionate about sacrificing the opportunities I can do or have just so I can buy another expensive luxury that can give me a short, ephemeral happiness if you think it’s not worth it why not have less expensive luxury so we can have more valuable experiences some I think it’s a poor man mentality while I’ll say it’s knowing our own priority. Like I said despite being a minimalist I still have a list of things that I want to buy for example let’s say I love to get certain watches and they are rather expensive I’ll use it to set a goal for myself to achieve by doing what I love building a business and I will not sacrifice what I value the most and my priority we shot anything found in my second list just so I can have a quick shot of dopamine.

At the end of the day, I might not even feel the need to purchase the expensive things even if I can because I realized that is the journey that makes things beautiful I might not even need the actual thing to feel satisfied with life so it’s a quick 5 to 10 minutes practice that will put you into perspective know more about yourself and what you truly want it helps a lot when it comes to purchasing new things into our life and even help us get rid of those expensive material possessions and of course with the help of 1-in-1-out rule and the 90/90 rule it can help you simplify your minimalism process.
