If you want to get out of debt, you need a plan. This post is the first in a series that will show you the quickest way to get out of debt and get on with your life. You’re already off to a good start by taking the initiative to find this article.
Step 1 – Declare War on Your Debt
If you really want to get out of debt, you have to be committed all the way. It won’t be easy. It won’t be quick. And it probably won’t be much fun (until you pay it all off). To reach your goal of becoming debt free, you must promise yourself that you’re not going to give up until you’re finished.
Give your debt an ultimatum. Declare war! Proclaim doom and destruction on your debt. Write it down if you need to. This might sound silly, but my point is that you can’t accomplish your goal if you go at it halfheartedly. You need to be enthusiastic about your choice to get out of debt if you want to last until the end.
So that’s your first step. That’s all you need to do right now. Commit to getting out of debt. Declare war on your debt!
