This question came in from last week’s Success 2.0 Webcast
“How do you keep pressing through when things look the worst, and your financial situation is moving in the wrong direction?” Chris
There are several things you need to do when things look very bleak and seem to be getting worse.
Start by stepping back and realizing that you may not know what the future holds for you, but that you do know Who holds the future. Knowing God is in control and having faith in Him gives us hope, and hope gives us power to take action.
Stop digging! Take a reality check on your situation and do everything you can to dump the things you cannot afford. Dave Ramsey has a proven formula for this and I recommend you check out his program.
Create a plan of action and work it. Do everything you can every day to reverse the trend. Have a garage sale, deliver pizzas, whatever it takes.
Fill your mind with the good stuff every day. Read or listen to encouraging and positive messages.
Draw your loved ones close to you. Tell them you love them and that you are doing everything you know how to do. Encourage them, and ask them to encourage you.
At the end of the day, ask yourself, “Did I give it 100%?” If you did, then sleep well knowing that you have done all that you can.
