Christian Debt Reduction Tips and An Action Plan
There are many ways to reducing your debt using a Christian debt reduction plan. Here are some tips to help you get started.
Tip 1 – Start to understand your expenses. Write a budget of your current income and expenses, yes all your expenses. Look for expenses to reduce. Take the extra cash you found and save it instead for your Emergency Fund. This will defiantly help you with your Christian debt reduction plan.
Tip 2 - God Loves a Cheerful Giver - 2 Corinthians 9:7. Be thankful for what you have and don’t forget to give. Replace fear with Faith. Remember, what Jesus said about a mustard seed of faith - Matthew 17:20
Tip 3 – Start making goals to get out of debt. See Debt Options for more information about getting out of debt.
Tip 4 - Start with an action plan. Read more about this information below.
Action is something that happens, it does not wait or procrastinate, and you just have to make it happen by taking action. This is especially true when you start to set up your Christian debt reduction plan. Without action do you think anything in this world would come to pass? If people do not take action on what they want or need, they will be getting back into the procrastination mode of life.
When it comes to taking action, write down what you need to accomplish. If you are at your job and a great idea comes in your mind that will help you in life write it out. Ask yourself this question when an idea comes to mind: “Can this great idea that came to me help me financially?” If the idea could help you in life, measure the risks (the pros and cons) and then decide if you are willing to pursue the idea by taking action.
Implementing an Action Plan
Here is an example of an action plan that you can accomplish.
1. Think about what you want.
2. Write down how long it will take to obtain this (guess at it if you have to)
3. Think about what you need to do to get the task done.(measure the pros and cons)
4. Take action and start to make it happen, DO NOT procrastinate.
5. Do not think about doing everything perfectly either, this is a learning process.
Concentrating on getting things done and doing them one step at a time is crucial when taking action. Once you get the wheels in motion, repetition will make life easier by taking action. This repetition helps a person through the trial and error of life. Habits also help people and great things happen when we have good habits.
Do not be afraid of stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something new when it comes to taking financial action. The more a person thinks about what they want to do with their money and over-analyzes it, the more potential ACTION goes away. Then you have to be careful of laziness. It is a pain to get out of the lazy mode of life and onto taking action again.
Taking action is just a simple matter of getting off the coach and stopping laziness. Laziness is what leads to procrastination which later becomes the object of not getting anything done. Thinking and thinking about the same thing again and again gets a person nowhere fast. Getting nowhere fast on something in life in not what life is about. Therefore, implement your action plan when the time arises. Just make sure you measure your pros and cons before hand to be wise in your ways.
