There is life after debt—and it’s fun! No, seriously it’s great! Come over to this side of the fence as quick as you can.
After you get out of debt there is a ton of cool stuff you get to do (you could do it before, it just wouldn’t be the best choice)
Life After Debt: Who Are You?
If you’ve been struggling to get of debt for a long time, and then one day. BAM! You’re done, the last check is mailed off and you don’t owe anyone a dime. You’re debt free!
It could be surprisingly anti-climatic at the end of the debt-free road. You’ve fought the dragon so long that your identity is tied to that stupid dragon. Your identity is no longer dragon debt slayer. It might be hard to put down your sword, but it’s time–the dragon is dead.
Without the dragon who are you? It will be a time of redefining yourself, your priorities, and your goals.
The next day the sun will rise and you’ll trot off to work, just like when you had debt. Life will be surprisingly the same, but with a sense of freedom. You’ll have a new swagger in your step.
Life After Debt is Awesome
Debt has forced you to do things you didn’t want to do at times you didn’t want to do them. You’ve got new goals now. Time to work on your 3-6 months of emergency fund and save for annual expenses.
What can you do after you’re out of debt and have savings? There are countless possibilites, but you have a choice.
You have a choice. Let those words sink in.
- You can choose where your money goes, rather than having been predetermined by your debt.
- You have a choice how to spend your extra money. You can choose to have fun.
- You have a choice to give more when you’re out of debt.
- You can choose where to invest and what items to save for.
- You have career choices. If you have $0 debt and 6 months of savings, you could start your business (I did).
Life after debt is full of choices. Choose wisely.
