Missed Fortune – Learn Now So You Don’t Have to Pay Later

Posted on | March 2, 2010

Take the money now, pay later.

This is exactly what millions of Americans have hungrily done for years.

Consumed with consumption, they were lulled into a sense of entitlement and security, believing they’d always be able to pay it off down the road.

Then the economic crisis hit.

Since then, jobs have been lost, homes have been foreclosed on, and nearly everyone has had a hard lesson in the dangers of reckless debt.

American consumers aren’t the only ones whose poor financial habits have had to be accounted for.

American financial institutions have had their day of reckoning, and many long-revered companies have been shaken – some, like Lehman Bros. – to their very foundations.

But news of poor financial decisions and subsequent carnage hasn’t stopped there.

Just recently, Greece’s financial woes have rocked Europe’s economy, weakening the euro and threatening to set back the entire continent’s economic recovery.

What’s worse, American financial institutions allegedly helped fuel the fiasco. A New York Times article revealed:

“As worries over Greece rattle world markets, records and interviews show that with Wall Street’s help, the nation engaged in a decade-long effort to skirt European debt limits. One deal created by Goldman Sachs helped obscure billions in debt from the budget overseers in Brussels. Even as the crisis was nearing the flashpoint, banks were searching for ways to help Greece forestall the day of reckoning.”

Whether on a personal, corporate or government level, fiscal irresponsibility can lead to dire consequences.

Whether you’ve been above the fray or found yourself a bit unraveled by your own past habits, there is no better time to set a course for financial responsibility.

It’s imperative to learn to borrow to conserve, not consume, and to prepare for your own retirement so you can enjoy an abundant life now, and later.

Find out now how Successful Asset Optimization strategies can help protect you and your financial future. Because you don’t want to have to “pay later.”
