They Can't Take it from You - If You Own it!
Ready, get set, pay it off!
I don’t care what it is…If you owe money on it, this blog is For YOU!
Want some good news during a turbulent economy? Hint: Look at the title again. Once you set your mind to paydown, chunk-out, and eliminate your financial obligations, there is nothing to stop you.
“But wait. What about my condo, or house?” You might say.
Unless it is otherwise stated in your promissory note, there is not one item that cannot be paid off early with dogged determination and a good strategy. You do not need to win the lottery. You do not need to work five jobs. However, you will need conviction and a determined heart.
You will also need a plan. A strategy. A way to get from here to there. Right now, you may be saying, “With this economy, I’ll never get out of debt!” This is where I would say that you are mistaken. I would also advise you to take those words out of your vocabulary. Treat them like poison and do not let those words cross your lips ever again.
Speaking of words, another thing that can help deliver you from debtor to ownership is your good attitude. Make it a great attitude. A great attitude at a high altitude is hard to shoot down. Think about it. Look at all the inventions that have come about over the years. Those inventors are living, breathing human beings just like you and me.
"But I've made some dumb mistakes with my money..." you may say.
That is perfectly fine. I am here to help you get the debt off your back - and put you in a position of ownership of those things you have in life.
Go back as many or as few years as you like. The model A Ford. The airplane. The personal computer. The iphone. Artificial intelligence. You name it. The witty inventions that people take for granted today, exist because some inventor had a dream and never let go! You can do the same thing with your financial obligations.
Even if you do not have much confidence in yourself today, you can get your attitude to take flight. Start right now. Imagine yourself debt free. What would it feel like to have that car or motorcycle paid for? No more gigantic credit card balances. You have got a $1,000 emergency fund, so the next time your son goes to the ER, you can pay the bill without worrying where you will get the money.
Success breeds confidence, and that confidence leads to more success. Think bigger. Now that those credit cards are down to zero, how about paying extra each month on the condo or house you live in?
Some may say, “Oh, with this inflationary economy, that’s impossible!” But not you. You say, “Why not? Why not me, and why not now?”
Consumer debt like yours is being paid down and paid off during this economy. Be a winner. Let your imagination take you to places you have never been before. See yourself paying down financial responsibilities right now. Stop reading for a moment and just let your imagination soar!
Norman Vincent Peale one said, “Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture.” You might think this a bunch of hooey, but real people have done this and succeeded. You can too.
To begin, you will have to face yourself in the mirror without condemnation or shame. You’ve got debt. So do millions of other people around the world. Admit it, then get to work. “I got myself into this financial mess, and I can get out of it.”
Do not worry about the math. The calculations will work themselves out just fine, without you having to bend your brain. Plus, I’ve got a FREE Debt Relief Workshop that you can download to help you get started. We will talk more about that later.
Take out every bill and obligation where you owe money and spread those statements or bills out on the table, countertop, or floor.
Gather the family. Spouse, children, parents, grandkids, and dog or cat.
Discuss the goal. We are going to work together to get on top of these bills. We are going to pay them down, chunk them out, and be done with them. This may mean that we have to do things differently than we’ve done in the past. But we can get through this, because we are strong and we are family!
Determine how much money is flowing out every month (food, clothing, shelter, necessities, ect). Next, look at your income. Pull all paystubs and deposit records. Add the numbers. Next, subtract the money that flows outward from the money that is coming into the household. The answer is often called discretionary money. The dictionary calls this the money that is left up to the individual or family, to decide where it goes.
May I tug at you like I tugged at myself numerous times?
When you decide where that money goes…be ferocious about 2 things:
One) Build that emergency fund
Two) Pay extra toward your bills.
(I’ll show you how to figure this out in the FREE Class).
Next, download the Free Workshop.
Watch it and get to work creating your own plan to pay down and pay off those bills. If you need more help, I offer a one-time, low-fee, get-it-and-it’s-yours-forever! program called:
Here, we take a deep dive together into formulating a plan to pay off financial obligations.
The fact that you are doing this as a FAMILY will make all the difference. Once everyone agrees to the plan, things will go much smoother than if you were trying to do everything yourself.
Yes, some things will need to be postponed
eliminated until most bills are paid in full.
Yes, you may find you need to do more home-cooked
meals instead of eating out.
Yes, you may have to brown bag it to work instead
of eating lunch out every day.
(No worries – it won’t last forever!)
Yes, you may have to prepare your coffee/soda at home for a while.
Yes, you may have to find other forms of entertainment instead of participating in expensive outings. Work together as a family and you will figure it out. Follow the workshop and the deep-dive class that I offer.
