1st Admit there is a problem. The boat keeps filling with water, you keep bailing incoming water but accomplish nothing more than frustration. You have to run a diagnoses to find the problem in order to fix it. If you are in debt and can't get out of debt there is a PROBLEM. Identify the holes and plug them with sound, sustainable financial principles.
The Basics (principles 1 to 7) Most of us spend the majority of our formative years hearing, seeing, learning and eventually making disastrous financial decisions based on what we learned through example as we matured in to adults. And as adults the results of the paradigms we have created about money are detrimental throughout our lives and passed onto our kids unless you and I decide to begin today to learn and apply some of the principles found within the financial fitness program
Principle 1. Pay yourself 1st, then save what you pay yourself.
I know what you are thinking Pay yourself 1st? Theres nothing left.
I promise, when you understand the thinking, and the psychology behind principle #1 you will understand why you will do it and why you haven't in the past.
Your offensive play
Offense (principles 8 to 24) Having the mindset and money view of the financially fit. The literally means going on the offense going on the attack, taking action to increase your current level of income by first investing your yourself with personal & professional development (feeding the brain) while applying principle 15 concurrently.
Principle 15. "Own a business, even if you start out working on it part-time"
There are two main approaches to building a successful business: Build a system or Buy a system. Robert Kiyosaki best describes the importance of having a system to create income.
Your defensive play
Defense (principles 25 to 41) Adopt habits of saving and budgeting. We spend the majority of our formative years hearing, seeing, learning and "maybe" starting the defensive part of finances. By the time most have left home theres nary a $1000 in the savings account. By the time people hit their late 30's to mid 40's most wonder if they will ever get out of debt, if they will have anything left over to save for their retirement. Is it too late for you? No. With the Green Box you will win.
Principle 25. "Get rid of debt."
There are many solid techniques and strategies to paying off debt that you will learn and apply as you study the financial fitness program. Most in the first days while going through the program discover gaping holes in their finances that they can immediately fix.
Playing field (understand the rules or lose the game)
Playing Field (principle 42 to 47) Government, and big banks were not created by accident. They were created by design to siphon from you through taxes and massive fees your after taxes dollars. Principles 42 through 47 will help you understand the vast underlying negative impact that government decisions, banks and the monetary system has on your ability to put food on the table, save and protect your family financially.
