“If wealth is defined as what you keep and not what you earn, then surely letting your hard earned money fly out the window to service debt cannot be conducive to accumulating wealth. How do people get to a stage where they have enough cash to actually start investing and accumulate wealth?
Wikus Olivier, Debt Management Expert at DebtSafe shares a few pointers on how to stay out of debt, for your wealth’s sake.
Try to stay out of debt to boost your chances of becoming wealthy. Not being overburdened with debt means that you will have real cash to invest and your net worth will not be in the negative as most of your fellow citizens’ are. People who make use of debt to maintain a certain lifestyle will never become truly wealthy.
The most important thing to remember is that debt will not disappear overnight. Getting out of debt will require a medium to long-term strategy, and discipline.
