Has debt got you down?
If so, you’re not alone. These days getting into debt is easy. Getting out is not. Buying lottery tickets and hoping to “win the big one” is not the answer.
No matter how much money you owe, and no matter how tight money gets, remember that life is too short to spend time worrying.
Therefore, the real “secret” to getting completely out of debt is actually very simple:
Make the commitment, then take action!
If all you do is sit back and talk about getting out of debt, and just complain about how hard it is being stuck in debt – and never actually do anything about it – an amazing thing will happen… NOTHING!
You won’t get out of debt overnight – after all, you didn’t get into debt overnight, either.
But you can change the way you think. Our mind is very powerful. And when life seems to be out of control, the simplest thing you can control is how you think!
There’s an old saying:
“The definition of insanity is doing the same things over and over again, but expecting different results!”
That’s especially true when it comes to getting out of debt!
You need to start with small steps. Take out a notebook and write down your goals. Write down the small steps you will take to reach your goals.
• Cut out unnecessary expenses
• Think of inexpensive ways to have fun
• Consider selling valuable items you don’t need
• Get a part-time job
• Start an online business
Think hard, write down everything you think of, then decide which steps to take first. And most importantly, go ahead and do them.
Nobody every got rich by sitting on the couch and thinking!
Without making the commitment to getting out of debt, you never will.
On the other hand, you CAN live the life you’ve always wanted. And if you make the commitment – and don’t let ANYONE or ANYTHING get in your way – you, too, can live a life without debt!
