The financial coaches all possess great traits and are all very good in doing their job but to the surprise of the Southbourne team, a few of those experts hit rock bottom already, but their ability to bring back again their personal finance on the right track is really admirable.
Getting your way out of debt requires commitment and dedication. And to spur people to reach their financial goals, those experts The Southbourne Group converse with decided to become financial coaches, so that they could beget inspiration to other people by sharing their own stories and struggles as well.
Bear in mind that you need to take control of your finances not tomorrow, but today. Don’t wait for your rock-bottom moment, but instead try your best to avoid it each day. Even if it seems everything is fine now and you can pay all your debts, does not mean you should ignore the possibility of falling hard on your finances. Always follow a strict budget and manage your money properly with a disciplined attitude.
If there are certain changes in your life like your partner losing his or her job, or from having a full-time job to a part-time job, you must conduct some changes as well on your part and adjust your financial lifestyle.
If you notice you are being out of control on your personal finance then you should face the problem instead of giving it a cold shoulder. Don’t blame others for facing financial challenges in your life because you’re the one responsible for it, but instead, start turning your financial life around.
Aim for financial freedom
Each of us holds different meaning to financial freedom, but let’s just say financial freedom entails “earning enough money and building the mental discipline to keep that money from controlling you” as Scott Young said. Those who are having a hard time on their finances should begin their journey to financial freedom today.
Examine your attitude towards money and begin from there. Don’t make huge spending then only depend on your belief that if you win the lottery, you could pay all those expenses - don’t make such excuses. When you find yourself trapped, avoid having a negative mindset and telling yourself there’s no way to solve your problem. Get up and find a solution because “there was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope.”
As mentioned earlier, don’t think negative thoughts if you are currently having a bad financial situation because that could only worsen the problem, but have an optimistic mind instead. Start turning your personal finance around by planning and setting a good budget because it is imperative to know exactly where your each cent is going.
Money isn’t everything
Yes, you should be responsible for reaching your financial goals but at the same time, you’re a human being that also needs to build good relationships with other people and create wonderful experience and memories with your family. Don’t be a money-machine that forgets how to love and live.
Don’t add more debts
Always remind yourself not to incur any more debt, which can later develop to a mental discipline to keep you away from debts. Be committed once you start your journey to be debt-free since there’s always this “temptation” to add more to your debts. To avoid this, you need to have a stronger disciplined mindset.
The Southbourne Group needs you to remember that “there’s no easy, magical formula when it comes to getting out of debt. It takes a lot of time, hard work, and discipline.”
