We all have a bad habit (or three) we’d love to kick to the curb.
Maybe we smoke, maybe we drink a little too much. Maybe we stuff our faces full of too much processed food. The habit of not hitting the gym plagues most of us.
Or we just don’t save any of that paycheck that deposits into our bank account every few weeks.
But none of our habits are going to just “fix themselves”, we have to take action if we want to have a better life based on good habits.
Bad Habits Promoted by Excess Financialization
Our habits are often formed in early life.
While our parents usually have an outsized influence on how we act when we become young adults, the role society plays in our habits cannot be understated. What are we seeing when we look out at the propaganda being pushed at us at every turn?
Money habits are formed when most everyone in society seems to be doing the same thing.
Society teaches us very bad financial habits.
Need a car? Get a loan
Need a new couch? Get a loan
Need a vacation? Take out a loan
Emergency car repair? Charge that credit card
Want an education? Take a huge loan, with zero clarity about your future income
The debt-based economy thrives off of borrowing and lending. And it is only continuing to grow larger as time ticks by.
Our habits continue to be formed by what is promoted by financial corporations and the incentives offered by governments, like absurdly low interest rates.
A Debt-Based Dollar Economy Leads to Unintended Consequences
All of this leads to a system of DEBT SLAVERY for those who are influenced and become trapped in the spin cycle.
As people rely on debt instead of savings, their freedom slowly erodes.
Instead of working a regular 40-hour work week, they take on a side-hustle to make their payments. If that doesn’t work, they take on a second job. If that doesn’t work they have to get a roommate to help pay the bills. Next they have to move back in with mom and dad, dedicating all of their income toward their debt. Or they may even have to file bankruptcy and start over.
All in all, its a giant hamster wheel and they don’t want you off of it! You become their moneymaker!
Thus, a savings habit must be developed!
