We live in a society that values material things.

People end up getting into debt so that they are seen to be successful.

We are constantly under pressure to keep up with the Joneses, we end up getting into debt, not knowing that the Joneses are bankrupt.

The Joneses filed for bankruptcy. It seems, like everyone else who tried to keep up with them, they were living above their means.

The big house, new cars, endless trips and toys, all of that “stuff” ultimately turned them into a textbook case of a broke family.

Nothing is more draining and humiliating than being in debt.

There is nothing successful about getting into debt in order to look successful to other people.

Don’t look successful, be successful.

Live within your means.

Save money.

Live free.
