We feel like this debt is just getting higher and higher, we need to START now. The debt snowball is something that grows just like investments grow, but the other way around. When we feel like we can never get ahold of anything like our debt, everything becomes effected by it. We thought we were the only one, but reality is our neighbor, our family, our best friends are in the same situation as we are.
Every family is unique. We all have our problems especially financially. If you are one of the few who are married into money send some to your fellow believers. It is no excuse to handle your earnings poorly due to family situations. You clock in and out for the shift or work on a salary, it is time to put your budget to work to earn an increase your net worth!
We all have different triggers and motivators, but the underlying catalyst is YOU! It is not a chore to manage your finances it is a commitment. It will take work just like when you lose weight, quit smoking, and some days will feel like nothing is going your way. This is where you and if you have a financial partner or spouse need to sit down, dig deep, and discover what is your motivation and your why you are beginning this journey. Write it out!
As much as we do not like to admit it, we worry what others think of us. How do you want to be remembered by your family and friends? Believe in you and believe you can do anything you put your mind to. Life is not all a facebook feed, you effect many people around you. Money is not everything, but having balance and responsibilities goes a long way. LEAVE A LEGACY of yourself for family, friends, and loved ones to remember you as.
