WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO START? TOMORROW? NEXT WEEK?
If you asked what the most common reason for failure is, a good answer would be “procrastination”.
Most of you know this. Yet, you often fail to recognize how often you make this mistake. Because you are busy with the everyday pressures of making a living and having a family, you feel it is only sensible to delay new projects until you have time “to do them well.”
Procrastination is expressed in many ways and has many reasons, but it all means one thing: “I don’t want to start now.”
THE REAL QUESTION IS, WHY?
If you are putting off doing something important, it’s almost certainly because of fear. It helps to identify what exactly you are afraid of. Ask yourself, is it a fear of …
facing your ignorance?
Or could it be a fear of succeeding? Some people procrastinate because they are actually content with their lives as they are and don’t really want them to change. They say they want to accomplish this or that because it seems like the right thing to do, but, in their heart of hearts, they actually don’t want anything to change (as it would if they succeeded).
The cause of failure is YOU.
The facts no one wants to read.
