I’m currently a high school math teacher and I recently paid off US$25,000 in 15 months.
Yes, you read that right.
I put a lot of work into it, and did some crazy things to pay off this debt...
In an ideal world, money shouldn't be able to buy us good health. We would all have access to health care and healthy food at affordable rates or even free of charge.
But we don't live in an ideal world…
Why do we find it so difficult to move ourselves beyond survival mode and into full on financial abundance?
Why do we constantly find ourselves on the financial edge?
Sometimes it seems like no matter what we do - we always find ourselves back in debt or with a zero bank balance or just dealing with the same old financial drama as last year or 10 years before.
Our minds are constantly growing, constantly evolving, and there's enough proof to believe in this theory.
Not just regarding physical size, even the basic functionality of the mind changes and evolves as we grow older.
So how can we change our mindset?
People usually use their lack of money as the primary excuse for not investing.
But when will money ever be enough? When you reach 45? 50? 60 or too old to count?
Investing while you’re broke is possible; you just need to make that mindset shift.
When I started tantra yoga, I'd only done vinyasa yoga and ashtanga yoga and was focused on being in the poses and looking awesome as I do them.
I'd force myself into poses and now I have to challenge myself to relax in a pose and feel into my body, which changed my life.
But not before I almost lost my mind crying everyday when I was getting my yoga teaching certificate in Goa, India and then had all sorts of ancestral and deep childhood memories surface.
In the last 4 years I've paid off 2 student loans (undergrad and an extra loan for grad school), 3 credit cards and several loans from friends and family.
In total, I’ve paid off USD60,000 (R600,000) and in this vlog I'll be sharing how I did it and will also be teaching how to create a step by step debt repayment plan or debt elimination strategy.
Do you have a debt elimination plan?
What would you do if you were debt free?
