On November 3, National Debt Relief revealed to readers the 4 financial fears that commonly plague consumers. The article entitled “How To Conquer 4 Common Financial Fears,” starts by discussing how consumers looking for financial freedom should seek out the right habits that will lead them there. These also include the financial fears that could be hindering consumers from reaching their full financial potential.
These fears, according to the article, can even paralyze those who have enough money to pursue their goals. It is difficult for a consumer gripped by fear to make rational financial decisions. So to pave the way clear towards financial success, the consumer must know what these fears are and what they can do to overcome them.
With that, the article enumerates the 4 fears that consumers commonly face when it comes to their finances.
1. Job security. The article states that there is always this fear of losing one’s job. But the article claims that more than losing the job, the consumer actually fears losing their means of income. That is because it will leave them with no money to spend for their basic needs. This makes them feel vulnerable and helpless in a consumerist world. What the article suggests is that the consumer must set up more than one source of income. That way, losing one’s job will not incapacitate the consumer’s finances entirely.
2. Theft. The second fear that the article discusses is theft. Identity theft is a rising problem and the article advises that consumers must be very careful in giving away their personal information. Taking steps to protect oneself is important - like credit monitoring, keeping credit cards safe, etc. It also includes knowing the latest tricks and traps of malicious criminals who get people’s identity to steal from them.
3. Debt. This is the third fear that the article points out to consumers. The article acknowledges that debt, when it gets out of hand, can dictate the life of the consumer in a negative way. To keep this from happening, the article encourages consumers to not fear debt but instead, learn how to master it. There are debts that are needed for financial growth and knowing how to manage one’s finances will help consumers keep these good debts from turning bad.
4. Bankruptcy. People are scared of bankruptcy because of how it will damage their credit score. The article advises consumers to consider their options carefully and if it is inevitable, to just go for bankruptcy. If the debt is hindering their financial goals, then the consumer must go ahead with it. They must learn the right lessons and work hard to rebuild their credit. It can be rebuilt. Even if it will take time, the damaged credit score can improve over time.
