21 Days to Financial Freedom

Day 1: Breaking Bonds

Start this day by putting yourself on a spending diet. You can’t shop for anything except necessities. You can’t use your credit card for 21 days. You should limit or eliminate the use of your debit card – just for the 21 days. You should use cash for purchases. This financial diet can help you break the bonds that are keeping you from achieving financial freedom. At times, you may want to quit. You may want to scream. You may even break the fast at some point during the twenty-one days. But no matter how many times you falter, make the commitment to get right back on track.
