A quick little post from the road today. Let's talk setting your goals.
How many of you out there set yourself goals? With timelines, and specifics? How many if you start that, get about 70% to them and find life hands you something that derails you? I believe that this derailment is actually a test to see if you really want it as much as you say you do. What if that derailment is the thing you are to handle AND STILL hit your goal rather than abandoning it?
Let's explore that thought.
We say we want to be debt free. Then we get our plan set up and we start down the path. Then temptation appears and we cave. Then life hands is stuff and we jump ship. What if we said no to temptation? Or readjusted our plan to accept a deviation that is planned for?
I'm guilty of this too. It's why I've started again with a better plan and am working it out more soundly and matching more purposefully than before. Plastic by the wayside. Needs first, planned milestones with rewards and the odd temptation built right in.
This is a goal I WILL meet and achieve. This is a goal that is worth the effort and time. It means a richer, better life when it is conquered.
What does debt free mean for you? What does your life look like without the debt in it? Start dreaming of it. It helps with the planning, gets the fire going and kicks in beast mode to get there.
