Being in debt is one of the biggest distractions anyone can have. Not having the money to pay our bills can be both stressful and take our mind off important matters in our life and business. Avoiding our financial obligations can be an enormous distraction and one that won’t go away any time soon.
When we think of distractions, we think of not getting our work done, but money is a major distraction if not handled properly in our lives. It can take over almost all your thoughts and energy because for many of us, our lives revolve around having enough money.
