Perseverance is actually the key to financial health. It's a matter of thinking about what you want to achieve and not stopping until you achieve it. Checking off smaller goals builds confidence and conviction.
If your financial goals consist of "pay off student loans" and "get rid of all credit card debt" you will inevitably become frustrated and overwhelmed. Those large goals are achievable, but they aren't where you should start. Break those hefty goals down into smaller, more achievable goals.
