“The only impossible journey is the one you never begin.” Tony Robbins
Once all the Christmas decorations are put away we humans have a tendency to look at the prospect of a fresh year and wonder what we can do to make ourselves better. Lose weight, start an exercise program, eat better, you know the drill! Most of these resolutions are made with the best of intentions but if you wait until February, you will usually have no wait to get that treadmill at the gym. Resolving to improve your lot in life is easy-doing the actual work can be a bit harder to achieve. If your New Year’s resolution is to clear your consumer debt and start living more intentionally with your money, I’d like to help you achieve your goal.
Last year my New Year’s resolution was to clear all of my consumer debt. We had 3 vehicle loans and a home equity line of credit-all told, it was just north of $18,000 we owed to our creditors. By September, that debt was GONE! Since I started this journey I’ve also taught myself to say NO to frivolous wants and seek out bargains for what I need for myself and my family. There’s nothing special about me that I was able to do all this except mindset. If I can do it, so can you!
Beginning next week I’ll be bringing you a series of posts showing you how to get organized so you can get started on your debt free journey. I’ve put together a workbook you can subscribe to here. Download the sheets, work through the exercises, and get your debt free journey started!
I’ll also be sharing some thoughts and strategies for staying motivated through the journey. It’s not always easy, especially in the buy Buy BUY society we find ourselves in today, but it IS worth it in the end. I’d love nothing more than to escort you on your way to debt free freedom!
One last thing-join me January 2, 2019 at 6pm EST. I’ll be launching the Debt Free Challenge on a Facebook Live! You can join the live broadcast on the Older Wiser Money Miser Facebook page.
Be well and God Bless-see you in the New Year!
