When people have money issues what is the first thing that they do? They try to save money. It’s an exhaustive task. There are men and women who clip coupons, cut cable and take public transportation, all in the name of saving a few dollars. While that’s a noble effort it seems like a tough way to live a life because you have debt. There is a better way to get rid of you debt without having to live like a pauper forever. It’s called “earning more money.”
No, that isn’t sarcasm you are detecting, it’s the truth and instead of trying to figure out a way to live on less the best option is to find a way to pull in more. The truth is that it probably takes just as much effort to get a part time job or to get a certification so you can get a promotion at work as it does to thumb through endless ads trying to save 59 cents on a bottle of shampoo. There is nothing wrong with taking advantage of these coupons but there is something not right of going into saving mode rather than earning mode.
The key here is that the more money you have the more options you have and the better you will feel psychologically. There is something about increasing your options that will help you feel much better than painting yourself into a corner and feeling like you have nowhere to go but to cut back more and more. It goes against the basic human principles of survival mode but it’s what will end up empowering you to be better. This kind of forward thinking is something that many people are latching onto and it’s really turning their lives around.
