The biggest and most important goals you set for yourself take time and effort to achieve. Many goals take more than just the hard work you put towards them, most goals take commitment of time and at least some money. If your finances are not in control, then they may be holding you back from putting in the time and energy to do the things you really want to do. For example if you want to run a marathon you need to have time to train, but if you are stressed about your finances you may be focusing more on getting extra hours at work and you put training at the end.
A financial plan, a budget and getting out of debt will make it easier to achieve your dreams. It takes the pressure off reducing your stress allowing you to focus your energy somewhere else. Although it may take work and sacrifice to get things under control in the beginning, it is worth it. You can find the focus to get your financing under control, especially if you realize that it will help you achieve your other dreams.
