Flashback: Dream big!

Make Love, Not Debt hosted Carnival of Debt Reduction #36, and this week’s Flashback from that carnival is from Blogging Away Debt: What hit me like a brick yesterday.

What hit Tricia like a brick (not yesterday, but a couple of years ago) was that she wasn’t thinking big enough. Up until that point she felt that she was sabotaging her efforts to become debt-free by telling herself that she didn’t want to be a millionaire.

If the thought of money leaves a bad taste in your mouth, it’s probably natural to not want to have to deal with it, let alone deal with a lot of it. Or it’s also natural to just want to get by rather than really succeed. But it’s not the money that’s the problem, it’s the way it’s used. Becoming debt-free involves all kinds of transformations: financial, habitual, relational, and even spiritual.

Don’t be afraid to think big!

According to Tricia’s chart over at the No Credit Needed Network, she’s more than three-quarters of the way toward killing her debt! Woohoo!

  1. You are very right. Its not the money thats the problem but the way its used. People tend to spend more than they are bringing in, and when the expenditures are more than the earnings, they are unable to balance the check book.

  2. Whether paying off debt or attempting to earn more money, thoughts can be a big obstacle. But dealing with our emotional and thought-life is worth it. Just look at Tricia. She’s made awesome progress!
