Over at Money Smart Life, there’s a great article about personality traits and how they can help pay off debt. I particularly like Miranda’s take on the importance of patience –
Sometimes, it’s not about the impetuous and grand gesture. Sometimes it’s about patiently sticking to your plan for the next three years. It can be hard to keep moving forward when you want the problem to be solved right now… You need to be patient as you forge new financial habits, and get used to making your regular debt payments.
I would add that patience – a willingness to endure – can be coupled with persistence – a fixed determination – to produce amazing results!
