Financial Friday: Fighting Debt Is Like Fighting A War So I Read
with an introduction by Alice Shaffer
As I was preparing this Financial Friday I sat beside a stack of my bills and an unfinished budget for the month of September. The holidays are almost here! It is 113 days till Christmas. Insanity! It was just here it seems! This year I add a brand new nephew to the purchases. I decided to look at some of the financial blogs I frequent for inspiration. I ran into The Financial Samurai, one I have never been to before, but the title of the guest blog was Sun Tzu’s Art of War Applied to Your Battle Against Debt . I was hooked into reading the post. Now let me tell you history has never been a subject of interest for myself, but I wanted to know how my personal debt was like a battle in a war! Simon Zhen from The Realm of Prosperity was the guest writer of this awesome post.
You may be questioning my reasoning on sharing this with you all. Here is why I wanted to share this post with you debt isn’t all about the dollars and cents, it is mental as well. This post really opened my eyes and my thinking up to how debt is a mental game. We don’t want to lose battles we want to win no matter the battle or war. I am in the process of preparing my 4th quarter war of my debt for 2010. This has helped me get “mentally” in the game of my debt to finish out the year on a solid good note. I hope it speaks to you as well in some fashion.
