Financial sustainability is achieved when you are able to maintain a certain lifestyle and have the financial means to cover your expenses and have enough to save for later. In a financiallysustainable pocket, long term savings takes priority over any short term splurge. Does that mean you can’t have fun? Absolutely not, but it means that one shouldn’t use one’s saving as extra money for an unplanned spending spree (whatever that may be). The reason being that the short term spending spree pushes your goal post that much farther than you originally planned and thus may discourage you from attaining your definition of success.
What determines whether one is financially sustainable? The answer is simple, after one has paid all his/her expenses in any given month from whatever revenue stream that exist, does he/she have any money left over? If the answer is yes, let’s look at it from the business world, in which case the leftover money would be considered a profit. Profits are not spent, but saved for future investment either to acquire another company or expand. In your personal life, that is your savings and that saving should not be spent without thoughts either. If the answer is no, speaking with a financial counselor or advisor is the first recommended step to change the inevitable. That is consequences for not changing could lead to financial ruin personally or bankruptcy will be the ultimate end to this story. Of course we all want to avoid the worst case scenario, what we do in the meantime will determine whether we fail or succeed.
So are your pockets financially stable?

Just wanted to take a moment to recommend an outstanding real estate agent. About a year ago my wife and I looked into buying a new house. We looked at exit realty's website and the next morning we received a call from Joseph Schneider. He is a true professional with an outstanding personality he will instantly make you feel welcome as if you're working with a longtime friend. My wife had unusual requests for the property and Joseph listened and found the property meeting all our needs. He is patient and knowledgeable I would recommend him to all. We purchased our new home in August and since then Joseph has remained in contact, just checking in from time to time. You can look but I doubt you will find a better agent !"
