Crossing a Psychological Barrier
It’s been our goal for a few years now to pay off our mortgage by the end of 2011. Realistically, the chances of us reaching that goal on time are looking mighty slim. There are only a few more months left, but I refuse to give up hope.
Meanwhile, we have something to celebrate.
Our mortgage is now officially under $50K. In fact, it’s under $48K now. Woohoo!
Somehow, owing $47,957.03 just seems so much less than owing $50,000. (And it’s certainly a whole lot less than what we started out owing.)
It’s funny how crossing a psychological barrier can make such a difference, but it feels like getting that debt paid off quickly has become just that much more possible.
And with each $1,000 and $10,000 we knock off from here on out, our progress will continue to snowball. Nothing breeds success like success, right?
So, tell me about something you’ve been successful at that was important to you. I think it would be cool to see what others have done.
