What makes you afraid?  Fear of not being able to pay your bills on time?  Fear of lack; of not being able to find a job or simply worrying about what to do?  For many Americans in today’s uncertain times, this is true.  Worry creates fear, which can feel like a spiral into a big, black hole.  The whole Universe seems to suck you in as creditors call and mounds of debt pile up faster than a corn harvester on a Kansas prairie.

I have heard many people in despair over these dilemmas, and they are definitely valid.  People who are facing foreclosures, losing their cars, jobs and material possessions.  This is caused by living outside of your means.  It is an endless funnel that only leads to despair.

Yet, the more we fall into the dark abyss of despair, the worse the situation gets.  This I know to be true, because that is the way it always goes.  No matter how many people tell you to be happy or how many things you try to do to get happy, those looming bills and the threat of the power company turning off the electricity will definitely cause depression, despair and fear.

Out of fear, into joy is about turning things around.  And debt is on the top of the list of fears of thousands – even millions – of people in the world we live in.  Not just here in the US, but in many countries where politics and corruption have caused economic disparity.  First of all, you do not have to succumb to the world’s attitudes regarding debt.  No matter how bad it seems at this very moment, you can begin today (or sleep on it, if you want a fresh start tomorrow) to bring joy into your life.  Feeling joyful will cause prosperity to return and new hope to come alive.

Even if your debt is compounded by many other problems, the root of the fear was initiated by you, and only you. Blaming the economy, your spouse, your boss or any other people will only make you feel more depressed and will certainly make your other problems worse.  You could risk sabotaging any chance of joy if you dwell on blame.

So when you wake up tomorrow, start with small steps.  No matter how foolish it feels, throughout the day you should begin with a few simple exercises.  Take a look in the mirror and say; “I’m going to have a great day and things are going to go my way.”  Then, put on your clothes and get out of the house, whether it means going for a walk, going to grab a cup of coffee, dropping your children off at school or going to work.  As you drive or walk, say; “I am prosperous beyond imaginable expectations.”  Or something similar, in your own words.  Say these things often, and throughout the day. 

At first it will seem contrived, but after a few days you will start to notice a few differences, namely in your attitude.  You will begin feeling better.  You will start to walk with more pep in your step.  Your head will begin to eradicate the negativity and instead you may feel more confidence within yourself, which will enable you to manage those things that often brought the fear into your life in the first place.

With a clear mind and a positive attitude, you may begin finding a way to dig yourself out of the black hole and find a ray of light.  The debt will not disappear instantly, for that you cannot expect. You will probably not win the lottery (although it would be fun to dream about), however you may find that with a clear mind and positive feeling in your heart, those good things that you crave and yearn for will begin to reappear.
