Searching for Luxury

Throughout the ages, people of all races have desired, and searched for, luxury. Whether they seek the more simple, sensual pleasures, or desire a deeper intellectual stimulation, people always try to surround themselves with something they enjoy.

The quest for luxury is completely natural, and people have found many ways to pursue it. The most obvious, of course is to surround yourself with it- luxury apartments, luxury cars, luxury yachts, even. Whatever you can. However, these can be hard to find, not to mention expensive.

Although you may be inclined to go out and buy whatever you want, when you want it, this impulsive desire is inherently self destructive. You will often experience buyers remorse, where you later regret buying something, not to mention quickly building up a mound of debt. It’s much better to spend a while looking for what you want, so you can be sure that what you are getting is worthwhile.

With this in mind, you may want to take short time to note down exactly what you are looking for. Your ideal apartment or house, your car, what you want to do with your time… Then, once you know everything that you want, you can go out and find it all.

Look around the shops in your local town. See what they have to offer. It’s not too difficult to find them, and it will give you an idea of pricing. You can also check out the different versions of whatever it is you want, for example deciding just which of the many brands of luxury yacht is right for you.

Once you have decided on exactly what you want, you can then decide where you are going to get it from. For this, the internet is an excellent resource. For example, take a look at There you will find links to hundreds of sites that sell every possible luxury, from horses and houses to tailoring and jewelry.

You can even buy online, ordering directly through a businesses website, or second hand through ebay once you know what you want to get. You may find that once you know what you want, it is easier to get then you thought it would be. If you concentrate your efforts on working through a list of everything you want to get, you could have it all in only a few years.

That’s right. What you may not realise, is that you spend tens, hundreds, even thousands of dollars each year on various short-term pleausures, that you really don’t need. For example, a night on the town could easily cost you a hundred dollars. If you spent that money on something else instead, something long term, you could be building up your collection of luxuries.

What would you really rather have, anyway, a beautiful painting or a few nights of fun? To me, the answer is obvious, especially when you consider that this is only a few nights. After that, you can go back to your old habits, and still keep the painting. Whereas all you get from your night out is a headache. So go on, make a list of what you want, and then go out and get it!
