Start by Setting Goals. People who set goals are remarkably more successful at anything than those that do not. They help assure success. Specific, measurable, and repeatable goals can help you accomplish a lot, fast. You can start by committing to pay off your lowest credit card debt in a certain time frame e.g., 6 months. Keep the card as closing the account will hurt your credit if you get the balance to zero. Just put it away, out of sight and not something you will use in the future.
