Debt–the other ugly four-letter word. It’s time to take a look at your finances and see where to declutter. Here are some questions and answers with Dawn Starks from SimpleMoney to help you on your path to debt elimination.

How do you define debt?  

Debts come in all shapes and sizes. People like to characterize debts as “good debts” and “bad debts.” To me, no debt is good. But certainly, some debts are better than others, and knowing the difference can help you prioritize debt elimination.

You are where you are in life because of what you believe about abundance. You created the financial reality you’re experiencing now with your thoughts and beliefs.

Your mind got you here. And your mind can take you anywhere from here.

You probably say that you want to be rich, but is that your current situation? If your bank account doesn’t scream RICH, then there are money blocks you need to clear.

If you knew you could have all the money in the world, you wouldn’t refuse it. But because you set limits on what you’re capable of (for whatever reason), you put limits on what you can have.

That’s a money block.

You’d only say you don’t want millions because you’re scared to be humiliated when you don’t get it.

In other words, you don’t believe you can have it. That’s a scarcity mindset.

I decided my theme for the new year was Abundance. I wrote it on every mirror everywhere. I stuck a fortune-sized paper of it in my wallet. I adopted the mantra in my morning meditation, “I love money and money loves me.”

I was excited to trade in lack and limitation for abundance and prosperity. Finally! This was my year!

Not even the first week of March and I’m already falling into old patterns and scarcity thinking. This will never work. I can’t afford to xyz. I need to get a second job.

Even with the best intentions, I still struggle to maintain this new idea that I can live abundantly. It’s one thing to “know” I can, it’s another to live as though I can.

It is a new idea for me. I’m not around “money” every day. I wasn’t raised with a silver spoon in my mouth. Both of my parents worked hard to create a middle-class existence for us 5 kids—and made sure we knew it.

All influences considered, my default (unconscious) state is that money is hard to come by. I have to work hard for my money. Money doesn’t come easily. A salary job is the only safety net.

Pretty limiting…and completely not true.

When we think of something and anything, long enough, it becomes a belief. But just because we believe something doesn’t make it real. It just makes it our belief. An arbitrary thought pattern until you tell yourself something new to believe. My belief can conflict with your belief and your belief can conflict with my belief, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. It won’t even matter either way. Why fight over beliefs when they are just what we habitually told ourselves? I can just as quickly change my belief to match your belief and vice versa.

Who began to put so much meaning on it in the first place?

We did.

We became identified with these beliefs.

Sing. Praise. Love. Share. Vent. Boast. Brag. Breathe.
