  • Ha! Yeah, I’ve seen that sketch. Tough concept to grasp! 🙂 Thanks Kevin.

    Simple but creative – I like it so much! But without a joke, it should be true, shouldn’t it? If everybody could understand this simple thing, they won’t be trouble because of their debts.

  • Kevin,
    This is great yet little amount of us will take action and do it. It feels like we deny ourselves if just be responsible and only get what we can afford. Now, this is too easy.

    The mental concept is great. Yet, the person will not give in to it based on excuses. I believe nothing is not affordable yet that takes years of experience with preparing for that rainy day.

    There has been times when I was young to make sure bills due are paid. Now, I use leverage and save the money yet pay with credit. Everything is paid off and life is good. It may have taken time yet well worth the sacrifice. Hey, you only need water, air and a roof over your head. A way to produce revenue that is ethical. Surrounded by love.

    Now, everything else is just things desires and hopes. You are only limited by your thinking and must be accountable for all your actions.

    You want something get it. Do not limit your thinking. Yet, be smart and make sure your being realistic with the timing.

    Kevin, thanks for this share. It was a great way of making an important point we all should visit in our life.

    That’s true. Buying expensive thing are one way of making yourself more elegance on the negative ways because you start show off on your friends.

  • Buying expensive thing are not the only way to look successful and elegant, but if you consider that is your only advantage make you go the negative ways because you start show off on your friends and believing you are something different. Nice video!

    Self-discipline is easy to say, but hard to do when it comes to buying stuff that one can’t really afford. I think that by setting your priorities straight first (like setting money aside for basic necessities such as food, shelter, mortgage, etc), you can truly buy things that you want (even if you still opt to use a credit card to pay for it), even if some people think that you can’t really afford it in the first place.

    It’s hard in this consumer geared US economy, with all the iPhones, iPads, flat screen TVs… the list goes on. The best thing to do is not to buy until you have the money set aside for it, and the set-aside money should be a small portion of what you actually save.

    Now, if only our government can learn this grade school level principal.

  • Trying, trying, trying to stay in that mode. It is SO true. Our biggest issue is that before Dave’s job came to an end, we could use a credit card for house repair or a trip and pay back shortly. NOW? We try to make sure the money is available OR God has told us to do something when all of the money is not on our plate at the moment [yes, He has and then He has provided quickly]. Otherwise, we just sit and wait. I’m the budgeter and Dave is cautious, so we do OK. One of the hard bits? We’re both “givers” and love to help others… and can’t now, except for basic offerings. Makes us struggle a bit. If nothing else, Dave fixes computers for free and gives free piano lessons for certain people. I take people on errands, etc. So, we are still able to give, but it’s not quite the same as the 20-plus past years. But, God is BIGGER. And we can trust HIM more than ourselves. DUH!

    • God will definitely provide for His work to be done. I believe a big way through which He provides is by our active surrender of all that we have and our good management of it.
