How to get out of a financial mess


I have only myself to depend on for my financial stability. ~Marie Helvin

It’s very easy to get yourself into a financial mess. You want it all and you want it now. It’s not unreasonable to want some fun, is it? And you want to spend your money on lots of new clothes and exotic weekends away with your friends too. As a result, your money’s spent before it’s earned.

No worries. There’s always your flexible friend to pay for everything. Well there is until you hit your credit limit. Then your wardrobe is cluttered with clothes you never wear but you’re not sure how you’ll pay off your credit card debt. And soon a small debt becomes a large debt and you’re in the financial mess you were confident you could avoid.

Does this sound like you? If it does, you’re not alone. However if you’re in a financial mess and you’re not sure who to blame, take a good hard look in the mirror.

It’s not the fault of the government. It’s not the fault of your current or previous employers. Your parents are not to blame either.

You are captain of your own ship. Start taking responsibility for yourself and your financial well-being. Stop wasting your money. Being sensible with your money might be boring but it’s less stressful than the alternative.

If you’re in a financial mess, don’t moan about it. Do something about it instead. And that starts with paying off debts and spending your money wisely.
