Updated on January 25, 2016

We all have a desire to improve, gain more knowledge on things we are passionate about. We want to spend more time on self-improvement and fight for our dreams. But there are a lot of factors that encourages many people to give up, for example – money! We all know that seminars, books or other things associated with self-improvement requires a lot of money. Don‘t be sad. There is always a solution to any problem. This article introduces 3 ways on how to spend less money on self-improvement!

1. Watch free videos on YouTube or other social media channels


Nowadays we have a lot of opportunities to improve and learn new things. The most important thing is that there is no need to invest a lot of money! Firstly, we have to choose what skills we want to gain or improve in order to implement our goals successfully and then search for a source that will give us that kind of knowledge. There is no question that spending a huge amount of money on self-improvement is not an option for most of us. We all know that books, seminars, conferences are luxury things. But we have to be grateful that we live in the internet era! Now we have the possibility to watch free videos on different subjects. Take for example, YouTube, it doesn‘t require you to have any money, you only need to be willing to spend some time and aim at developing yourself. Watch those videos, learn from them and save your money for other things!

2. Wait for discounts


Some people don‘t like to reading books via the internet. Bookstores have a huge stock of books, but it requires you to have stable income to allow yourself to buy books often. If we want to improve and read books on self-improvement often, but we also want to save our money, it is important for us to wait for discounts. Then we will have a chance to buy not one, but two or more books from your favorite bookstore for the price of one. It proves that it is useful to wait for discounts. You win by doing so! When a new book appears on the market, sometimes we have a desire to buy it at once! We have to remember that it is always a good idea to be patient and wait if we want to save our money!

3. Search for seminars that are free and attend them!


There are various seminars on different topics all around. Maybe you want to be an excel expert or have a better understanding on SQL or WordPress? Or maybe you want to learn how to control stressful situations without huge efforts? Those people whose salary is not huge also have a chance to learn what they love without big investments. Everyone can observe social media channels, for example Facebook. There you might often find notices that a new lector or organization is planning an event for free on a subject you are passionate about! Or you might notice an event that is organized with a huge discount! That‘s why it is useful to spend some time in social media channels in order to save our money on self-improvement!

We can achieve our dreams. We can improve, learn new things and still have money to spend elsewhere. Those ways prove it! Try to include those practices in your life and you will be pleasantly surprised. Spend more time on your self-improvement and save your money rapidly! Remember, sky is the limit. Learn to sing, learn to dance, learn to meditate, gain charisma or other traits you are passionate about!

      Very good advice. I have found free classes online as you suggest. We're alive because we have something more to learn; if the tutelage is free, why not take advantage of it?
