National Debt Relief recently shared in an article published June 6, 2016 some of the pitfalls that consumers experience when they start to upgrade their lifestyle. The article titled “How A Lifestyle Upgrade Can Be Hazardous To Your Financial Health” looks at how this affects the financial goals of consumers.
The article starts off by emphasizing the fact that a person’s financial health is greatly influenced by the decisions that they make. The wrong ones oftentimes lead to less than a stellar financial position while the opposite can arguably guarantee finances that are healthy and strong and resilient despite less than favourable economic situations.
One of the most common problems people face is when they start to upgrade their lifestyle based on what they see from other people. They fail to recognize the fact that the income would never be the same. The people that flaunts their riches through flashy cars and huge mansions can actually be earning more money and can afford it.
There are a lot of factors to consider such as investments or retirement funds other people might have which allows them to enjoy the lifestyle they have at present. It is also possible that they worked so hard to get their reserve funds to a very comfortable level and that is why they can splurge a little knowing they have emergency money.
The article also points out that “keeping up with the Joneses” can put consumers into financial peril because they might start to overlook their own needs and requirement. They might have more kids than the family they are trying to financially keep up with or bigger debt amount that needs to be paid up first before buying a new car.
