Why Upgraded My New Car – Jerry Fetta
My BMW upgrade could have been a 1 or 2 but I made it a 5. When I purchased my BMW x6, which I have named Jumbo, it was so that I could generate more income. Here is why (I’ll tell you why I named it Jumbo as well).
- By leveling up into my dream vehicle I am invalidating scarcity mindset in myself. I have a rule that as soon as I feel fear surrounding a purchase, it is an indicator that I must do it now. This forces me to attack my problems and think bigger.
- Driving better car is a form of improving my environment and my positive experiences which enhances my energy and increases my production.
- Because my x6 weights over 6,000 pounds, it was purchased by my company, deducted as a business expense, and will be also written off as it depreciates over the next 7 years. Taxation is theft. BMW’s are better than being stolen from.
- The main purpose of this upgrade was to get attention and promote. Last weekend I watched the new movie about JP Barnum. What I learned from that movie is that I must promote more. There is a scene towards the end of the movie when Barnum rides an elephant to pick up his wife and children. Barnum realized the importance of promotion. When the movie ended, all I could think was “I don’t have an elephant”. The BMW x6 I’ve upgraded to is my elephant. I named it Jumbo because that was the name of Barnum’s controversial elephant. Promotion is a key to wealth!
