The biggest benefit of debt settlement is the feeling of control. For the the first time in 3 years, I feel like the captain of my ship.
In an earlier post, I mentioned the concept of passing the threshold of caring. You convince yourself its okay to spend more money by saying, “I am already $100,000 in debt. What’s another $1200?”
As of my phone call to CRN on July 2nd 2009, I went back into the THRESHOLD OF CARING!
This was a HUGE step in my personal recovery from debt. I immediately felt better. This is an important point and a big part of why debt settlement can be successful.
Even before I removed a penny of debt, I felt like a new person.
I had taken back control of my life
Debt had been running my life, or should I say RUINING my life. Now that was going to stop. I had committed to change. I had talked about my problem with someone, WHO I TRUSTED, and that person knew how to help me.
WITH DEBT SETTLEMENT, I STARTED CARING AGAIN.
The minute I started caring, I stopped spending. Instead of ignoring my debt, I was focusing on eliminating it. I could envision a life of being debt-free. I could see the path to freedom.
Debt settlement was my slingshot to kill this Goliath.
Up until that point, I was in a tailspin and couldn’t see a way out. Now I could see a clear path to recovery. Because the program made sense, I was able to fully engage and get excited about it. Based on my situation, using the DIY debt settlement program with CRN, the dragon would be slayed within 12 months (or less)….and I could see it.
Debt settlement isn’t for everyone. Among other factors, you have to be willing to face your problems head on; you must get honest with yourself; and you must be tenacious.
The benefit of debt settlement goes far beyond getting out of debt. It is really about taking control of your financial life. Once you decide to take control you will IMMEDIATELY feel better. Trust me.
After committing, I asked myself:
“If I feel this great by committing to this program, what will I feel like when I actually settle my debt?”
Freedom was in my future and that future was NOW!
TAKE CONTROL. TAKE OWNERSHIP. BE THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR SHIP.
WEALTH AND FREEDOM ARE IN YOUR FUTURE!
