Uche Ucheka’s 101 Bucket List Series : Item 8 - Checked

I published my 101 bucket list   last year and really have not done anything about the list (guess I was taking my time knowing I have a lifetime to do them…) until most recently when my baby girl beat me to one of the items on the bucket list and in all honesty, that was a major wake up call for me. In doing that baby girl has unknowingly been able to catapult me to a place of plain realization that anyone can achieve anything at anytime. I believe it all depends on willingness to attain, readiness to pay the price of attainment and of course the undeniable factor of right opportunities that life and the big HE upstairs brings our way. From that time, crossing out things from my bucket list has been uppermost in my heart and in doing that I can say that this is me practically permitting myself to live out my dreams and I am really being intentional about it.

I must confess that I have been a bit too cautious about starting to cross out things from my bucket list and that is because I have this mindset that in order to prove that I am a wise and serious minded person I need to start from the most impressive items on the list…the ones that will bring me applause, change my social status and of course make my pocket happier…BUT in waiting to achieve those ones, I realize time just passes. I may think I have a lifetime to achieve the things on my bucket list but even a lifetime is timed! So there is really no time to waste. A lifetime does not have a measuring device as life in itself is transient. So I have decided to start where I can. To start with the simplest ones I can afford to close out at this point and then gradually work my way up the ladder to handle the tougher ones. After all it’s my life and my bucket list and the only person’s permission I need to live my dream life is me alone.

In this article, I am crossing out item no.8 Achieve zero debt
I am debt free and intend keeping it so till the very end of life. Indebtedness can be a great thorn in the flesh and a stealer of a man’s sleep and rest of mind. So I am eternally grateful to God that I am not tied down by such a menace. I am particular about this because I have seen debt ruin lives. My late mother’s horrible experience in the hand of money lenders is a life experience I can never forget. To protect myself from indebtedness I try to be content with what little I have per time, I discipline myself to live within my means, I borrow only when it is absolutely necessary and if/ when I borrow, I only take what I know I can pay back easily. I also always make a plan B for settlement of my debt just in case my first plan fails.

So there it is! Item no.8 of my bucket list checked…Others to follow shortly. Please hit the comment button and let me know your experience with indebtedness or your own method of protecting yourself from indebtedness.

Yours in the hustle,

Uche Ucheka

  6. I suffered stagnation and depression because of indebtedness. Sometimes I look back and see that some of those debts were really uncalled for. So I decided to live within my means and I can't a mantra daily that "I owe no man" today, what I have been able to pay off 95% of those debts and the remaining has been planned. I have not accrued any other debt yet I have been fine. Thanks be to God for breaking the yoke of debt from my life. Well done sis for this wonderful work God is helping you to do.
