Your Needs and Wants

What is the difference between Needs and Wants?

We all mix them up. Imagine for a moment you’re looking to buy a new car. What do you need? Something reliable, decent gas mileage, seats one, or maybe 4, what else? Do you need it to have fast acceleration? Do you need it to be a color you like, maybe even bright red? Do you need a snazzy convertible that makes you feel on top of the world?

So wants and needs get mixed up in our head.

A need is something that must be fixed, a problem that requires solving, a pain that requires fixing.

Wants are desires, preferences, attractions.

And if you can satisfy both your wants and needs at the same time, do it, and be aware of the difference and the double win.
