When it comes to your financial goals, do you think BIG? Do you allow yourself to dream about the possibilities that are out there when the debt is paid off or your income has increased?
Or is the road that leads to the forest too daunting of a task to tackle?
It's sometimes hard for me and my husband to allow ourselves to think big. But what happens when we don't allow it?
If we want to be debt free, then we have to live like we want to be debt free, not just think "oh that would be nice some day".
Our financial goals might look like yours: pay down the debt, increase our emergency savings, save money for short term goals, save money for retirement, set aside money for our kids' education, travel, renovate the house, blah, blah, blah...and buy a camper...that last one might not be on your list ;).
Our list is large, long and intimidating, but if we don't have a plan, it will just stay at what it is...a list.
What do we need to do to get to the forest ahead of us? Action steps are needed and a plan needs to be developed. We need to tackle one tree at a time and maybe the forest will be ours.
Oh honey, I know you are reading this...are you in???
