It is important to have a dream. When you feel like you cannot dream anymore, that is the point where you are defeated. On the Debt Free Living podcast I always ask what the guest’s long term dreams are and I have gotten some great answers. I truly believe that those who are debt free are able to dream better than those who are not debt free.
Debt makes it harder to dream because with debt you are always thinking in the moment, wondering how you will pay your bills and not able to think about the future. Another way of putting this is figuring out your “Why.” Your "Why" will keep you going through the hard times and enable you to accomplish your dreams.
If you would like some help developing your dreams, I am offering my two hour financial checkup coaching package for only $99 in the month of January. I would love to sit down and work with you on developing your financial dreams and figuring out how to accomplish them.
In addition, my friend Deacon Bradley from lifestoked.com is offering his CRUSH2012 course starting soon. I took it back in December and it really helped in developing some goals for my life- not just financial, but also other areas such as spiritual, relational, physical, and career goals. To register please visit Deacon’s site. If you use the promo code ‘ThanksJon’ you will receive 25% off!
If you have any comments, questions, or ideas for future shows you can send them to me and I will integrate them into a future show. Email me at JWFinancialcoaching@gmail.com - Please put “podcast” in the subject line and keep your questions brief so they are readable on air.
