I know that not everybody loves Dr. Phil. His drawl is a little annoying, and his no-nonsense, take– no-prisoners style can irritate the most patient person. But, he is popular for a reason. Plenty of things he says make sense. In fact, I have even found myself saying on occasion “how’s that workin’ for you?” to people whose life choices have ended up costing them dearly.
Another phrase he uses that I like- when talking about bad relationships is this: “The only thing worse than staying in a bad marriage for ten years is staying in a bad marriage for ten years and a day.” In other words, just because you made a decision that is no longer working for you doesn’t mean you have to live with that situation forever.
The same is true for our relationships with how we spend our dollars. If a bank or investment company no longer seems like the right fit, it’s time to change. Your life changes over the years. Children arrive, or leave home. Your financial situation changes. Your priorities and interests shift. If a timeshare contract no longer serves your lifestyle or bank account, then why stay one more day with something that doesn’t work for you? Get rid of your timeshare Now!
