If you are reading this, congratulations! You are making progress along your journey to financial freedom. Century’s team is working hard to obtain the best settlements for you and to relieve you of your financial stress.
One of the most important things to us here at Century is to ensure that you are able to live a debt free life and avoid falling into debt in the future. There are many things you can do that will help you design a debt-free lifestyle. The great news is that you can start today!
While we live in a country where consumerism has run rampant, making a conscious effort to be frugal with your money can help eliminate your debt more quickly. With the money you save, you can deposit additional funds right into your Century program, which could speed up your program. You will also get in the habit of cutting costs and saving money. Not sure where to start? We can offer you some tips beyond the norm to help you make a lifestyle change and step towards a stress-free life.
Live In a World Which Supports Your Goals
The people, places, and things that you live around can often be a big influence on your thoughts and your actions. One of the best ways to make progress in life is to surround yourself with a world that supports your goals. Some ways to do this are through learning and association. Spend time with people who are living a debt free life and learn how they are enjoying life without burdening themselves with debt. Another way some may reduce their urge to buy is to avoid temptation. Skip out on lunch with friends at an overpriced restaurant and skip annoying TV commercials that are meant to pry at your wallet. Associate yourself with others who understand your goals of saving money and who may also be trying to save money and spend smarter. Great support can be found within your circle or through participating in numerous online groups of like-minded individuals.
A few other things you can implement in your life is to learn new skills, such as cooking from scratch and doing your own mending. Look for free and low-cost entertainment opportunities for those date nights, including free outdoor concerts and free passes to local museums. Look over bills and cut expensive cable packages as plenty of entertainment is available online and outdoors.
Think of it this way – The savings that you obtain by cutting costs and skipping out on expensive luxuries can be put towards settling your debt. In return, your debt will be settled faster and that will ultimately accelerate you towards your goal of financial freedom more quickly.
Stick with the Plan
Not everyone will agree with your newfound lifestyle. And that is perfectly fine. It might hurt a little to have to turn down an expensive dinner invitation and some friends may not be into potluck dinners. However, those friends and family members who are supportive will try to understand and respect your efforts. Stay strong and keep going. You may be surprised to find that you become a source of inspiration to those around you. Have a plan and stick to it – the reward will be priceless.
Your efforts to stay out of debt don’t have to start after your Century program is completed. The steps you take now can have a massive impact on the progress of your settlements and ultimately your time on the Century program.
We encourage you – start your new lifestyle today and prepare to live debt-free in the future!
