We’re all busy.
Rushing from one thing to the next. Go to work. Take the kids to school. Meet with friends and family..The list goes on!
And most of it all costs money too. Gas money if nothing else. But usually much more than that.
Sometimes, I feel like I need to be a SUPERHERO to make it all happen.
*As a kid, I watched the Power Rangers and always thought it would be amazing to be the White Power Ranger! So when I think of myself as a Superhero, I think of myself as a White Power Ranger
You just need three things:
1) A realistic goal
2) Plan to make it happen
3) The strong desire to achieve your goals
Think back to when you really wanted something. Maybe it was to be the first in your family to graduate college. Or maybe it was to join a sports team in High School. Or maybe it was to land your first job at the best company in town.
What did you do?
How did you achieve your goals?
With a plan.
Getting out of debt in the same. Similar to some of our life goals, getting out of debt can seem overwhelmingly difficult.
So let’s start with the goal.
Setting a Realistic Goal
I completely agree with the concept of setting a realistic goal. Because if you set a goal that’s not achievable or is basically impossible to achieve in the timeframe that you’ve set, you are setting yourself up for failure. And you will lose confidence in your ability to achieve any goal.
So be specific, set a set that could be attained, and set a specific timeframe (we all have the potential to procrastinate without set deadlines).
If you’re trying to get out of debt, Set your debt free day and count down to it.
Use a debt free calculator and calculate exactly when you’ll be debt free
Plan to Make it Happen
Be optimistic and sit down with a clear, well thought out plan to make it happen.
If you’re trying to get debt free, make an excel spreadsheet with a detailed budget for each month. List every expense and find ways to dramatically cut your spending to pay off your debt each month.
The Strong Desire to Achieve Your Goals
A goal and a plan are great but when it really comes down to it, you need to make it happen. And excitement is absolutely critical to achieving your goals.
If you’re trying to get debt free, think about how amazing it will be! This will inspire you to make your dream a reality.
Do you ever feel like you need to be a superhero to achieve your goals?
