I was thankful this month to be able to travel up to Delaware to meet my wife’s grandfather. Unfortunately, he couldn’t attend our wedding, but I enjoyed getting to meet him and see how everyone interacted with each other. I did end up using the Barclay’s Mastercard, and with Christmas approaching, I feel like I’m going to end up using the cards. If you don’t have money in savings, you may end up falling back into the cycle of charging things on credit. My advice is if you must do it then, make sure you can pay off what you charge. If you can’t then be willing to sacrifice a Christmas where you can’t buy gifts. The holidays should be about spending time together, and not about spending. If you’ve used the self-lending principle, then you’ve had the opportunity to build up your savings account at an accelerated rate.
It’s important to make small and measurable steps, and celebrate the small victories.
If you want to learn more about how I’m increasing my income, while reducing debt or if you want to have someone to discuss your debt reduction strategy with, or if you need a financial check-up, contact me.
Also, learn more about how I use the self-lending principle through Mustard Seed in the mustard seed section.
“The LORD will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them.”
