Your Credit Score is Below 600
Your credit report is a running record of your routine payment history and outstanding loan balances The credit bureaus use this information to compile a credit score that may be accessed by anyone considering giving you new credit and, for that matter, anyone you do business with of any kind.
The three major credit bureaus differ a little but credit scores generally range from low of 300 to a high of 850. A score of around 670 or above is considered good. A score above 800 is excellent.
If your score is below 600, it's below the average and below the level that will make it easy for you to obtain additional credit at a reasonable rate of interest.

- Get into the habit of saving.
You are Saving Less Than 5%
If you are saving less than 5% of your gross income, you're probably in over your head. If you're spending more than you earn, you're definitely in over your head. (There's even a term for that: dissavings.)

You're not alone. The savings rates of Americans has been falling steadily since 1975, when Americans saved as much as 17% of their disposable income, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, which tracks the numbers. The trend bottomed out in mid-2005 at a measly 2.7%, and by late 2019 hovered around 8%.

In terms of targets, the rule most financial advisors suggest is at least 10% of your gross income. Beginning at age 30, if you were to save 10% of your $100,000 annual income in your 401(k), or $10,000 every year, and earn an annual rate of return of 5%, that money would grow to more than $900,000 by age 65.
Your Credit Card Balances are Rising
If you pay only the minimum due on your credit card balances each month or if you send in only a small contribution toward the principal balance, you are very likely in over your head.
The average annual interest rate on newly issued credit cards is now 19%, and the average on existing balances is 15%. It's easy to get sucked into an endless cycle of revolving debt.
"It's a goal that's right here and now and it's something that we want to experience," Curry said. "It'd be a huge accomplishment because doing something that hasn't been done in the history of the league is special. You never know if this opportunity will come back again. There are so many variables that go into winning this many in a row, especially the start of the season."

More Than 28% of Your Income Goes to Housing

Why is 28% the magic number? Historically, conservative lenders have used this threshold because experience has taught them that it is the amount that the average person can pay and still enjoy a reasonable standard of living. (Lending standards loosened considerably for a time. Then the 2008 subprime mortgage meltdown happened.)

James Gorman, a Times reporter, accompanied scientists who are trying to understand the genes that distinguish dogs from wolves. Humans who raise wolf puppies must spend 24 hours a day, seven days a week with them in order to socialize these puppies for scientific study. And while the pups may seem cute, they will grow to be predatory wolves, not humanity’s faithful companions. The researchers hope their work will help reveal the trigger that made some ancient wolves into the dogs we know today.
