Is your debt holding you back from the life that you want? Do you want to finally start saving more money?
It’s time to take a step back and look at crushing debt. I enjoy writing about making more money, starting a business, and working on cool projects. The thing is that many readers are in a position where they’re still stuck with debt and can’t make too many moves for the time being. I totally understand that. This is why it’s important to focus on getting rid of that debt.
I wanted to put together a primer on crushing debt to help you get started and build some momentum.
How can you crush your debt forever?
Do you know how much you exactly owe? The first step in dealing with your debt is to figure out how much money you owe in total.
When looking to see how much money you owe, I recommend considering the following thoughts:
Once you figure out how much you owe in debt, you can move forward. You just need to know where you stand.
Which debt are you going to deal with first?
There are two schools of thought here.
It would be totally helpful if you found a second gig to help you deal with the debt. The more money you have coming in, the more you can put towards your debt. Thus allowing you to become debt-free much quicker and ahead of schedule.
The hidden benefit of working extended hours is that you can prevent yourself from spend money by being at work. It’s tough to spend money when you’re at work. Whenever I want to get hardcore about my savings, I pick up the amount of hours that I work.
Setup your bank account so that your debt payments are made automatically. You don’t want to be the victim of a simple mental error. This is why I believe in automation. Once you set your payments up, you can forget them.
This is the least fun part. You just have to keep on going. There are no shortcuts here. Just repeat. Viciously pay off your debt with your eye on the prize. Don’t forget to still have some fun (without the plastic).
I don’t want to see you snap on your road to becoming debt free. This is why I recommend that you reward yourself after a small win or when real progress is made. A reward doesn’t mean that you put yourself into more debt. It can be something simple like a night out or a dinner at your favorite restaurant. I want you have to fun and feel good about what your doing. Burnout can be avoided by simply treating yourself when you deserve it.
I have more on this in my premium guide, Completely Conquer Credit.
That’s how you can become debt free. You won’t be debt free today or tomorrow. If you stick it out you can have a credit card balance of zero in just a few months.
Once you’re debt free you can quit your job, build your savings, go on more trips, and live the life that you want. It all begins today with the first step of your journey. I hope you’re ready.
