Almost Out of Debt: The Fear

Sounds backwards, right? But fear is oh so present. Here are 3 examples:

  • Fear that I am 1 week away from completing a journey I have been on for years and something could go wrong. Something catastrophic could happen and trip me up mere moments before crossing the heavily anticipated finish line adding possible years to the debt fight.

  • Fear that I will be debt free then end back up in it down the road. Although I have taken the necessary behavioral steps to ensure this doesn’t happen, you never know what could shift.

  • Fear that even if I do not end up back in debt, I will not win with money in the long run because I will misplace money along the way. Not choose the right options in stocks, a Roth IRA, investments, etc.

These may seem a little silly, and I haven’t put much thought into those 3 things over the years; however, now that I am about to step into the bright light at the end of my dark tunnel, these are my present fears. I’ll keep you posted as always, but for now, I’m simply keeping it real J

A bite of food to chew on:
“If you live in fear of the future because of what happened in your past, you’ll end up losing what you have in the present.”

  1. Hi Jessica

    Congratulations on getting rid of student debt at an early age. seems most people will end up still paying it into their 40s and 50s. I think as long as you take the monthly payments that used to go towards the debt and put them into a savings account or investment account you should start to lose the fear you're talking about.

    1. Thank you! That is indeed the plan; I just hope to move the needle with investments and not lose my money or merely let it sit. The fear comes from the place of staying average even after debt. Gaining wealth is most definitely the goal.

  3. HOW EDWARD LOAN COMPANY GRANTED ME A BUSINESS LOAN!!!{jonesloaninvestment@hotmail.com}

    Hello everyone, I am Oliver Johnson Moore from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to EDWARD JONES for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 28hrs just like my friend Lisa, i was also granted a loan of $387,000.00; So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces. You can contact them via email on {jonesloaninvestment@hotmail.com} or Text +1(240) 686-5090
