Finding Inspiration for your Debt Free Journey

Deciding to get out of debt is not easy, but it is easier than actually putting in the work to be debt free.  Most have a long road ahead of them with the average American in 2018 has $38,000 in debt with ages 25-34 holding the highest amount at $42,000.

Good Debt vs Bad Debt

Inspiration is transportation for motivation.  When you are feeling like you are tired of the sacrifices and the work that it is taking to get out of debt, get inspired. Debt free inspiration is two-fold.

Good Debt vs Bad Debt

The internet is full of great blogs and articles to read when you need a little debt free inspiration and motivation. But everyone has an opinion on how to do it.  I suggest looking for debt-free stories, advice, and inspiration from those who are (or almost are) debt free.

Create a visual of your money goal. This could be a money jar printable, a thermometer, a jar of marbles that you transfer to another empty jar as you pay off $10 at a time.  Whatever you can come up with to SEE where your money is going will only benefit you.

Debt Free Motivation

Be open to trying new things. When you want to make a change in your life, you are going to have to try new things to get you there. There’s a lot of resistance when it comes to trying something new, but knowing that to get where you want to be you have to push through it, will keep you going and learning.

I found myself $68,000 in debt a bit over 2 years ago, and I live in high cost of living area. Moving/selling wasn’t an option. When it comes to reducing debt, you have 2 main levers to pull – 1) save/reduce costs and 2) earn more income.
