Importance of the Low Money Tolerance Limit

The low money tolerance limit is one of the two goalposts of your idea of "a lot of money".

Spotting the high money tolerance limit is easy. How much is "too much"? (This is a BS story you're telling yourself, installed by parents, family, friends and other authority figures, and reinforced over the years). The high limit of your money tolerance has far-reaching effects: if $4000/month in apartment rent is "too much", it's unlikely you'll ever live in certain places like stylish Manhattan—and it's unlikely you'll ever qualify for the jobs that would pay for it. You wouldn't let yourself in.

But the low money tolerance limit will mess things up for you, too.

Money Tolerance Frames Your Life

In my case, for example, anything under around $1200 is "dumb". A "waste of my time". Difficult for me to get excited about.

This means I am not your guy to sell candied apples.

I don't see myself as a fit for that role...and my money tolerance as an indicator has a lower limit to demonstrate it.

I have a tough time selling things at what I consider low prices.

You do, too.

Awareness of this criteria is really important if you want to do well in sales. Without awareness, you'll continue to be bumped around like a pinball, bouncing off things emotionally and neither knowing nor caring why.

But you ought to care.

Work On Your Awareness of Your Money Tolerance "Goalposts"

Let me ask you this:

Wouldn't knowing what your money tolerance goalposts are immensely help you with understanding why you do the things you do? And don't do the things you don't do?

Why living in a particular place is "impossible", or meeting a specific person "could never happen", or selling an individual item is "dumb"?

Knowing what game you're playing is a big key to success.

Awareness of where those goalposts are is even more important.
