We asked owners of several top debt reduction blogs why it’s important to be proactive if you want to reduce your debt and become debt free. Here is what they had to say:
“We can’t fix a problem without acknowledging it first. When it comes to tackling outstanding debt, many times we address the symptoms instead of the cause. Getting to the root of the problem, and making changes to how we think about debt, will allow us to truly be proactive and make great progress towards financial freedom.”
“If you want to get out of debt for good, you’ve got to be proactive. That means changing your behavior for good, which starts with only spending money you already have. By paying down what you already owe, preparing for the future, and tackling the past, you can live the life you really want to live.”
– Jackie Beck
“Hiding from or ignoring your debt will only make it worse (trust me, I ignored $100,000 of debt for 4 years in college). The first step to getting out of debt is to know what you owe – how much, what type, and to whom. Then, get really clear on how getting out of debt will get you closer to your ideal lifestyle. This vision will keep you motivated during your debt-payoff journey.”
– Becky Blake
“For my family, the biggest factor in actually eliminating debt has been prevention. It doesn’t matter how much you pay off if you keep tacking on more debt every month. A lot of times, I think this happens out of necessity. You wouldn’t be in debt if you had the money, right? A $1,000 emergency savings fund is a good start, but it’s not enough. When we started living on last month’s income, we created so much breathing room.”
– Mrs. P&P
“The #1 reason we paid off our debt early was because of cash flow. There wasn’t enough cash to go around each and every month. Specifically, there wasn’t enough money to travel. That is what we wanted to do was travel. So, we made a plan to pay off our debt ASAP and each time we said “NO” we were saying “YES” to our celebration. Our celebration was taking our family on a beach vacation (paid in cash of course).”
“Compound interest is either going to work for you if you’re investing or against you if you’re in debt. Tackling debt is the first step towards any sort of financial freedom. Once you’re out of debt and you free up that cash flow, the possibilities are endless.”
“The thing about getting out of debt, is that it’s not just about money. Debt freedom creates the ability to make better life choices. Your family, career, stress levels, and even your spiritual life improve in a huge way because you don’t have to worry about a massive pile of debt dragging you down. Debt freedom creates life freedom!”
– Dr. Jason Cabler
“Debt is a bondage that can creep up on you slowly. So slowly that you don’t realize its hold on your life, your freedom or your ability to make any choices concerning your future. Debt can steal your happiness, your peace and your hope. Don’t let your desire for stuff bring you into this kind of bondage.”
– Becky Heptig
“Your debt is more than just another bill! Treating it as such will hinder you from reaching your financial goals. Coming to this realization was paramount in my journey working towards financial freedom. Changing your mindset towards debt, can change your life!”
“Debt steals your dreams and puts a pause on some of your biggest life goals. Making a plan to pay off debt is one of the best things you can do for your future. Being debt free eliminates extra spending so you can focus on what really matters – your goals, values, and priorities. When you acknowledge your debt and make a plan to pay it off, you naturally become more intentional with your money. This shift of values based spending can change your life. My tool of choice for eliminating debt is a debt snowball spreadsheet.”
– Jamie Griffin
