I think of debt the same way. When it comes to battling it, every man is for himself. Unlike the snowball wars engaged by playful college kids, debt plays with a very heavy hand that can leave you broken and financially scarred. But, just like I used the military tactics from school to beat the enemy, those same tactics can be used to defeat debt.
There are actual proven strategies that we can leverage to completely obliterate debt. It’s called the Infinite Banking Concept.
Tactic #1 -Know your Enemy:
Conventional wisdom says we should pay down debt that has the highest interest rate. That’s not necessarily true. You’re much better off paying down the debt that is the most inefficient. Look at the ratio of the debt balance versus the minimum payment.
Tactic #2 -Use Your Firepower Wisely:
When you know which debt to tackle first, it often times makes sense to take out a loan from your policy to accelerate the pay down of debt.
Tactic #3 -Remain Disciplined:
Paying down debt takes discipline, no doubt about it. Using your insurance policy incentivizes you to stick to the long term debt repayment plan knowing that all the loan payments are going straight back into your personal economy for long term growth and future utility.
