Twisted Message from Credit Card Commercials…”You Can Have It ALL”

Despite what credit card commercials tell you and I, you CAN’T have it all. And here’s an ironic twist for you and I: the harder we try to “have it all”, the more we will end up losing in the long run.

If we focus the majority of our time and energy on getting more and more or reaching a certain income level, we can expect to have less of other things.Have your Cake and Eat it Too

You may experience significant losses in your relationship with your family, your health, your free time, your peace of mind. You and I CAN’T put a price tag on these things. But you can bet that we will appreciate them a lot more when they’re gone.

Let’s all try to focus on a Quest for LESS stuff and MORE quality of life by investing in what’s most important: Relationships with our family and friends.

No one has ever said on their death-bed, “I wish I had worked more.”

Take action TODAY to get on the path God intended for you and I in living a Debt Free Lifestyle. Change your behavior and you can change the world! Don’t believe me? I DARE you to try it!

Are You a Toxic Person?

Have you ever been around a TOXIC person who complained and made excuses about everything in their life?  How did you feel after being around that person? My guess is that you couldn’t wait to be free of them. No one in their right mind enjoys being around a negative person. They are TOXIC and they bring you down.  Now a Personal question, ARE YOU A TOXIC PERSON?

The person I would much rather choose to be around is the individual that has a positive outlook on life. They have an “Attitude of Gratitude”. This person makes the choice to be joyful, even when times are tough. They live by the principal of being “Thankful” rather than “Toxic”.

My mother taught me early in my life how to develop an “Attitude of Gratitude” by following these life principles :

1. Don’t Worry.  Worrying doesn’t change anything, but the acid level in your stomach.  It’s counter-productive and a BIG waste of time.

2. Pray about EVERYTHING.  Instead of worrying, use your time for praying.

3. Thank God in ALL Things. It’s extremely hard to be “Toxic” when I am giving Thanks to God. Did you know that the healthiest human emotion is not love, but gratitude. Studies have shown that being grateful makes you more resistant to stress and less susceptible to illness.

4. Focus On The GOOD. The best way to reduce the level of stress in your life, is to change the way you think. The way you think determines how you will feel. And the way you feel determines the way you will act. This involves being INTENTIONAL in making a conscious choice to FOCUS on the GOOD.

What are you worrying about? Talk to God about your worries and concerns. Confide in a close friend that will not judge you because you are struggling with some “Tough Stuff”. Think about this: If you had an “Attitude of Gratitude” as much as you worried, how do you think your life would change? Yes, times are tough, but only you and I can make the choice to turn our Lemons of Life into Lemonade. No one else can do that for us.

Take action TODAY to get on the path God intended for you and I in living a Debt Free Lifestyle. Change your behavior and you can change the world! Don’t believe me? I DARE you to try it.

Pass on the Debt Free Lifestyle Message!
