Not Despair Over It Be Monies Boss Not Monies Servant

By Ange Fonce

One of the greatest obstacles to living life fully is money. 

While happiness and contentment definitely cannot be bought it is also true that a lack of money can have devastating effects on anyone and not having sufficient money can cause extreme levels of stress... work problems... marital problems and problems with the rest of the family and so much more. 

How many people are not living full lives because they have to work two or even three jobs just to make ends meet? 

How many people are miserable because they do not feel that they are providing their children with enough of the basics or any of the luxuries of life?

As the societies of the world become more and more materialistic it is more and more common that people base their happiness on possessions. 

How many possessions... what brand names you have or how expensive they are... all become very important to you because you are trying to win the approval and respect of other people. 

This materialism though often leads you to spend more money than you can truly afford and you often end up finding yourself in debt... making large payments on credit cards and not having enough money to do anything today because it all went to make payments. 

So what do you do? 

You charge something else today thus ensuring your future lack of financial security.

The arguments start when one spouse buys something that the other spouse knows they cannot afford or when someones not able to buy new clothes for their children or when payments are being made late and the late charges are piling up or the creditors are calling. 

The stress comes when you look at a pile of bills and have no idea where the money is going to come from to pay them. 

The despair takes over when you start to feel that you are trapped in an inescapable abyss that is eating you alive.

Escape from this sort of situation may look impossible and it is not. 

It does take an investment of time... commitment and patience and you have to realize that from the start and it is possible to stabilize your financial situation. 

There are a number of steps that you can take to fix your finances and each step takes a bit of work and with personal discipline and dedication if you are going to be successful in your attempts to reach financial stability.

Taking Control

1... Knowledge... 

More than anything else you need to know your financial situation intimately. 

You need to know exactly what you owe to whom and how much you have to pay each month in order to meet your obligations. 

You simply will not make any progress if you allow your situation to be unclear and confused. 

You also need to know exactly how much money is coming in and if the amount going out is higher than the amount coming in then something has to change. 

2... A Plan... 

Once you know your financial situation then you need a plan. 

What are you going to do in order to lower monthly bills? 

How are you going to spend less and how are you going to get more money coming in? 

Some people take a part time job and use ALL of the money from that job to pay off debt. 

Others search out help from a debt counselling service where they can help you to lower the payments that you have. 

Most end up having to adjust their spending habits... like buying supermarket brands which are just as good as the brand name products or making lunches for their kids instead of buying lunchables and other expensive products. 

Do you really need those lottery tickets? 

We all have to make choices when we are taking control to stabilize our financial situations.

3... Personal Discipline... 

Once the plan is in place... stick to it no matter what. 

That does not mean that you have to stop living life what it means is that you are doing with less for a while in order to ensure a future that is much less stressful and harmful than the present. 

Make sure that an evening out for dinner every other week is in the plan or even a Saturday morning out for breakfast or a nice weekend lunch out as it is cheaper and you tend to get more food for your money at breakfast and lunch. 

Plan this because your goal here is not to make yourself miserable by depriving yourself and to improve your situation by sticking to a financial plan. 

A day out every once in a while helps to raise your spirits so that you can deal with your struggles more easily.

4... Education... 


And do not just learn about money... learn about yourself and your attitudes and your perspective and find out which parts of yourself may be contributing to financial problems. 

Are you spending too much on your car because you feel insecure and you want acceptance from certain people? 

Are you not looking for a better paying job because you lack confidence in your own abilities? 

The fear of success holds many people back. 

Learn how to make more money with the resources available to you now...

What skills and abilities do you have that will help you to earn money in different ways? 

What skills can you learn to help you earn more money?

5... Action... 

Once you learn act on it. 

Nothing is ever accomplished without action. 

Some things may happen by chance and that is not an accomplishment. 

Your goal is financial stability or affluence and one of the beauties of the world of today is that such a financial situation is available to all of us.

You just have to act and work on your plans.

The pain of financial problems is one that never goes away as long as the problems are there. 

If you begin to work on your problems systematically you will find a sense of peace and satisfaction settling down on your like a nice warm blanket on a cold and rainy day for you know that no matter how bad the situation looks at least you are doing what you can to fix it. 

It takes patience and discipline and it often takes asking someone else for help... such as a debt counselling service and the action you take now can help you to pull out of the desperation you feel and it can ensure a future free from the awful feelings that your present situation is causing. 

That vacation that you cannot take now may be easy to do three or four years from now and you may be ensuring your childrens college educations if you take control now. 

So instead of being a slave to money and letting it stress you out... take control of your finances and be a money Master.
