Global debt has reached about $51 trillion and that enourmous number keeps growing higher and higher everyday. Every second someone takes on more debt adding to the global debt number that will reach about $54 trillion by 2014.
Average citizens carry the burden of debt everyday whether it is from student loans, a mortgage or having too many credit cards. Millions of people everyday are paralyzed by their debt and searching for ways out. Many people choose to file for bankruptcy as a last ditch means to restart their finances.
However, it is possible to bounce back from heavy debt and return to a financially stable place but it does take some careful budgeting and sensible spending.
