Using our financial statement template, you can quickly conduct a full financial inventory - identifying all assets, liabilities, sources of income and expenditures.
In Step Three of our 10 Steps to Conquer Debt eBook , you will complete a Personal Financial Statement.
Our free template provides more than a simple financial statement. We have created a unique format for organizing your financial information, which makes this a more valuable tool - more on that in a minute.

The most common obstacle people face in completing this step is... DENIAL.
"Your net worth to the world is usually determined by what remains after your bad habits are subtracted from your good ones."
- Benjamin Franklin

If you want your money problems to change; if you truly want financial help; if you wish to learn effective budgeting guidelines - then it's time to face your fears, right here and right now.

Once you have all the above information on one sheet - you will never again be caught off-guard about detail of your finances.
Imagine if your identification is stolen. By accessing financial account and contact information immediately you'll be able to quickly call creditors to close and re-issue your credit cards and financial accounts and minimize the monetary risk or damage. This benefit alone makes our personal financial statement an invaluable tool.
In addition, there is tremendous value in the confidence you gain, knowing that you are now back in control of your financial destiny.
By taking personal responsibility of your finances you are immediately increasing your ability to take full advantage of future opportunities as they arise. By having a clear picture of your financial condition, you will be better prepared to make thoughtful decisions regarding our finances.
- Brian Tracy
The purpose of completing a personal financial statement is to arm you with the knowledge you need to better manage your money; to expand your ability to overcome financial challenges, and improve the overall condition of your life.
Many highly successful people have said that the best thing that ever happened to them was "failing". Somehow these folks took what they learned from their failure and pushed forward to achieve amazing success.
Unfortunately, many people don’t bounce back from a major failure. They get stuck in their self-imposed prisons and continue to let failure punish be an excuse for more of the same.
The only difference between the successful and unsuccessful man or woman, is the CHOICE they make in how to respond to failure.
The successful person works to discover why he failed, and then takes a new approach to avoid making the same mistake the next time around. The unsuccessful person wallows in his failure and never works to identify the reasons why he failed.
"He who will not economize will have to agonize."
Being deep in debt represents a failure to properly manage your money, but that does not mean you are a failure. Whether you fail in life or not depends on whether you have decided to quit trying to achieve greater success!
Our personal financial statement tool will help you to identify financial shortcomings and assist you in learning from your past mistakes.
Hopefully, you are getting excited about changing your financial situation and are leaning into the first few steps.
Stay focused on the goal of conquering your debt and increasing your income. Making this one choice has the potential of changing your life, and the lives of your family members, for years to come.
