At FIRMS we are aware that most you are probably still trying to get used to the fact that a premier debt collection agency, such as FIRMS, would actually want to help you get out of debt. Well, trust us when we say that a major part of our pride is helping people just like you learn to better manage your finances and become financially healthy so you can avoid going into unnecessary debt. While most debt collection companies might try to intimidate you and remain focused on simply collecting your money, FIRMS is dedicated to helping you learn to get out and stay out of debt.
One of the more serious factors in the life of someone stuck in the debt cycle is their mindset. It is not just the mindset of finances and understanding money but the mindset of negativity that keeps us outside the place of growth and change. One of the most important aspects to getting out of debt and making better financial decisions is staying positive in your thinking and your views about where you are going.
FIRMS has developed three changes you can make starting right now in your life to help you get out and stay out of debt.
- Stay Positive in your thinking. NEVER allow your thoughts or feelings go to a negative place concerning your finances. If you currently have some outstanding debts, don’t have negative thinking keep you in the debt cycle. Change your thinking to be positive. Tell yourself that yes, you do have some debt, but you are going to have everything paid off soon and you are making better financial decisions.
- Set a goal and complete it. Start with something simple like you are going to cook dinner at home more often rather than eating out. Don’t start with your first goal being something along the lines of paying off your home. Sure, you can pay off your home but that could take a long time. We are looking for short term goals that you can complete soon and get some momentum going in your favor.
- Set a savings goal. Set out to save $100 and then take that $100 and put it towards one of your outstanding bills or debts. Write your goal down on a piece of paper and set it somewhere you’ll see it often. Maybe tape it to your refrigerator or inside your car where you can see it. Now work towards saving that $100. Look in your house and car for spare change, maybe make your coffee at home instead of going to Starbucks. Once you have saved your $100 go and put it towards an outstanding debt.
These are three actions and changes you can make RIGHT NOW that will help you get out of debt and actions that will make you much better and managing your personal finances and having far better financial health.
