Generally, people love the spending power of money but don’t like the possible consequences of irrational excessive spending. Regardless of various opinions about money, in the modern world, money is necessary for survival.
Financial peace isn’t the acquisition of stuff. It’s learning to live on less than you make, so you can give money back and have money to invest. You can’t win until you do this. Dave Ramsey
Irrational Excessive Spending Of Unearned Funds
Irrational excessive spending of unearned funds is the act of overspending on unnecessary items using credit as a method of payment. As long as credit payments are made on time there is no problem. However, a loss of income can affect the ability to repay credit, thereby creating a personal financial crisis where debt cannot be repaid. As terrifying as the situation may seem it isn’t the end of the world. Here are some strategies to overcome a personal financial crisis and regain financial stability.
Stay Calm, Relax and Handle Debt Before It Gets Out Of Control
Always handle debt before it gets out of control. Don’t wait until your financial situation is unbearable to start making changes. The earlier you start dealing with a financial crisis the less impact it will have on your credit score. It’s easier to panic in a personal financial crisis, but by staying calm you can properly analyze the situation to make better financial decisions moving forward.
Make Better Purchasing Decisions To Eliminate Debt
Audit expenses monthly to spot unnecessary purchases then stop purchasing these items. Keep a record to track your progress – this will require self-discipline and determination. However, when your level of discipline and determination is tested, remember your ultimate goal is to get out of the financial crisis. So get out of your way and use your mind to get out of the financial crisis.
Reduce and Eliminate Debt and Reallocate Funds
The freed up cash available due to making wiser purchasing decisions can now be used for eliminating debt. Fortunately, eliminating debt can single-handedly free up more cash that could be reallocated towards paying off the larger debts. For best results, it is recommended to eliminate debt from smallest to largest.
Invest Freed Up Cash To Help Prevent Future Personal Financial Crisis
With the freed up cash, investing is a great decision. However, before making an investment decision, research potential opportunities extensively to help avoid investment scams and most importantly, to ensure you are aware and understand the risk to reward factor.
Save Money For Life Up and Downs
Life has up and downs – the ups are great and the downs sometimes are absolutely terrible. Develop a habit of saving money for rainy days by creating an emergency fund.
Have Fun, Live Life And Stay Positive
Dealing with a personal financial crisis can be stressful. However, have some inexpensive fun, live life and stay positive, because a lot more can be achieved with a positive mindset.
