Life is simple, amazing and full of mysteries. There are 7 billion people in this world and each person is unique in his own way. But we can all decide to live a simple life. Yes, it’s a choice, irrespective of your money…
To live a simple life saves money, time and energy. It is not about being stingy or narcissist. We came to this world with empty hands and in nakedness. In the same way, we shall return. God in his own wisdom made our basic needs available to us. Without much stress, we can have access to the most important things in life. Yes!, and these are absolutely free.
Science and technology are doing their best to provide the fastest, simplest and convenient means of living life. But you have the power over what you want to use and what you don’t want to use. Let me take you straight to the facts.
Simplicity Is The Best
Life is beautiful and simple and so there is nothing strange to prevent you from knowing how to live a simple life. In this post, I will discuss with you how to live a simple life and feel happy as if you own everything in this world.
A couple of months ago, I felt the need to make it known to everyone, how to live like a millionaire/billionaire without being one. It is as simple as ‘A, B, C.’ Look, one of the stupidest things a human being can do is to live life to impress someone.
If you fall into this category then it is time to turn on a new leaf. Living a fake kind of life makes you lose real friends, opportunities and even your blessings.
Today’s social media, for instance, has become the platform for people to showcase their crazy fake lives in grand styles. Fake slay queens everywhere, fake Pastors everywhere. Other guys (la-borrows) showcase wealth and money they don’t own. Can’t you live a simple life and feel happy?.
The Most Important Thing
Without knowing how to live a simple life, you will find yourself in troubles. It would be a shame for you to buy things you don’t need or things your marginal income can’t settle because there is someone out there you want to impress. Ain’t you being a fool?. My teacher used to say:
“Outside gentility, home cry.”
According to the Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, the most important things everyone needs are classified as “Physiological and Biological Needs.” These include the air you breathe to stay alive, the food you eat, water/drinks, shelter and rest. In all, the theory highlighted 5 different stages of human needs. You may visit “SimplyPsychology” to educate yourself on how to live a simple life according to your needs and the available resources.
“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”
— John Burroughs
If you really want to live simple, then you must first be contented with your physiological and Biological needs before you move to the next level. You can even decide to stick to it and you would still live happily with your family and friends.
This world has a larger percentage of poor people. It doesn’t mean they live a simple life because they can’t afford to buy cars, houses, and spend money on luxuries.
Living a simple life is a choice and I challenge you today that even most of the world billionaires in our 21st century love to live simple lives. You, therefore, need to learn lessons from them. Don’t forget to read my article on “lessons to learn from millionaires – how they live simple lives.”
They can live extravagantly but have decided to live a simple life. The inspiration behind this is about humility. Just like how the ex-president of Uruguay(Jose Mujica) chose to live a normal life. He is the perfect example for anyone willing to live a simple life. Probably, he is the simplest man to live in our generation. He is not moved even when people call him the poorest president in the world.

Advice On How To Live A Simple Life
To live a simple life, it will differ from persons to persons. We don’t earn the same amount of monies, we don’t share the same ideologies, interests, lifestyles, and cultures. Despite all the differences, we can all minimize our abilities to do things which might be more than usual(excess).
The bottom line is to live simple. Don’t compare your life to anyone. A rich man may live a simple life by buying the simplest or cheapest car in the automobile shop. Though you can’t buy it. There is something else you can buy according to your capacity. It is your life so know what will really make you happy and satisfied.
