They say, whoever THEY are “high stress people have more health problems because stress lowers your immune system which lets disease sneak in.” I think there is truth to that. I know a lot of people who never have had heart attacks; they never worry about money or where life may take them. In addition, they don’t overwork, love to lay on the beach and don’t let other peoples’ actions affect them. Many of them avoid over-eating which they use to do to escape, like any addiction.
This mentality is not how we have been programed. Society says work hard, get rich and be happy. Isn’t it the opposite that’s true? Some people say “Get rid of all your bills and your possessions that you don’t need and true happiness will enter your life.” Would you rather have no money or no debt? Remember, the goal is stress level zero.
I’m not talking about getting rid of all your possessions, but can you imagine having no debt? Along with that comes a guarantee of no stress. Now let me describe what debt does. If I owe someone, what if i can’t pay? Oops, up goes your stress level. What if I can pay and can’t buy something i need, oops again. Does that bother you? For me, it creates doubt which causes an uncomfortable feeling in the stomach to follow. The pressure of CAN I or CAN’T I arises as a result.
Remember there is one goal here, “Having fun with your life, that’s it.” So if something is keeping you from that, this has to be the first thing on your list of things to change. I want that new car so you will like me, respect me; That’s EGO. Ask yourself why can’t I be happy with just myself and not even care what others think about me? No I said that wrong, I do care what others think about me, but do I have to have their approval for me to be at peace? That’s wrong. What you think about me is none of my business. Please understand, I want others to love me but if you don’t its OK , really its OK.
This is the beginning of stress level zero. So now think about buying things you NEED not WANT. It’s not as bad as it sounds. By the way, this could also be the answer to a rocky relationship. What we’re trying to do is not blame anyone or anything. How can you get stressed out if its no ones fault? It’s just that easy. So lets all start thinking about living a “No Problem Life with no Debt, no Blame that equals no Stress.”
Now if you have money to buy things go for it. Just don’t put that debt notch in your belt. That notch always has a price and it far exceeds money. JIM THE IDEA MAN firstname.lastname@example.org
