With large changes that happen over time, such as my journey to Total Debt Freedom, sticking with it is one of the larger challenges.
When things get tough or you just get a bit down, it is far too easy to just give up and end your quest. For me, staying motivated involves a few different strategies.
One method is what you are reading right now. I started this blog to publicly state the lofty and seemingly unobtainable goal of Debt Freedom.
For me by standing up and telling the world (or at least the five people who read this blog) what I was doing it is a way to force me to keep going (public humiliation and all that).
Another way that I stay focussed is to take time now and again to remind myself of how far that I have come, of what I have achieved. (In order to gain confidence not arrogance.)
The other way is to look up at various motivation sayings and try to remind myself that I can do this, because of all of the things that I have done.
Yet another way to stay motivated is to look up at my goals all of which are posted above my fridge with a deadline date.
I see my step by step plan to move myself towards my goal of not just Total Debt Freedom, but moving and living beyond Total Debt Freedom.
I know that with each low point that I get, that this too will pass, and that I must keep going for the sake of myself and all of the people I hope to help after getting my land.
That is a story for another blog in the future, for now I will just keep trudging forward down these last number or months towards my next milestone: Total Debt Freedom.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
