Have Fun

IMG_0903

Now that you’re seeing great results in eliminating your debt load and building your savings and retirement, stay focused on your overall goals. Keep living within your means and spending less than you earn. Before you make any impulse purchases, ask yourself “is this really worth adding to your debt?” Instant gratification is never worth it when it comes to your financial future.

Don’t forget to treat yourself! The most important part of living a financial stress free life is getting started, so don’t worry about doing it perfectly. Celebrate your efforts as you check in on your progress toward savings, retirement or a rainy day fund! Give yourself credit where it’s due. Small celebrations can be great motivation.

Financial planning is all about discipline, and often the first steps can be the toughest. Once you get a good routine going, you’ll start to reap the benefits in all aspects of your life. This will lead to a stress and anxiety free financial life.

When you’re debt free, have a 6-12 month emergency fund, paying off your house, and saving for retirement, it’s time to have fun!

Now is also the time to boost your generosity! Give to your church, give to your favorite cause!
