Ever feel as though you aren’t getting anywhere and paying into that debt and it isn’t going anywhere? Do you feel as though you are never going to get out of the bondage of debt that gives you sleepless nights on how you are going to pay for groceries tomorrow? Times are definitely tough with high gas prices and the temptation to use credit sounds as an easy way to get by, but you must resist. You must stay focused on paying down those debts with any available funds you have. You might say, “Money is tight, and I don’t have extra for that!” but this attitude will only dig you deeper down and cost you big bucks if you don’t do this now. Find the money. Disconnect that cable, get a second job and skip out on that Starbucks coffee every morning. I know it seems tough but if you don’t get it under control, you will only be rolling that boulder uphill only to have it roll right back to the bottom.
Sisyphus was a King in Greek mythology that was punished for his deceitful acts towards Zeus and others. His punishment was to roll a huge boulder up a very steep hill only to watch it roll back to the bottom and forced to do it all over again for eternity. Can you imagine the frustration?
When you are trying to eliminate debt, sometimes it can feel like that boulder is getting bigger and heavier with every trip up . There are times when those balances just don’t seem to be lowering. Stick to it and keep your eye on the prize of financial freedom. The good news is that your days of pushing a boulder don’t have to be an eternity. The choice is yours on how many trips up you will make to the top. Keep in mind that one day you will push it up and over for the last time, then you will look down and celebrate a victory which very few will ever achieve.
