Procrastination kills creativity, purpose and our dreams even before we give ourselves a chance. At the beginning of every new venture, business or personal goal, we are often filled with bright and beautiful ideas. However , these ideas are meaningless and can die a quick death if we do not take action.
Taking action requires us to overcome challenges such as laziness, self-doubt and fear, the result of which is procrastination. Most people have great intentions to take action, and many have no idea, why they even put things off to a later date.
Fear of failure is often one of the reasons people don’t even take action, don’t kill your dreams at birth. As a baby needs constant care and support so too does a new business or relationship. I am sure you will not abandon a baby for not being able to walk instantly, yet many people are ready to throw in the towel at the first challenge they face. For people who are afraid to fail, they should remember that all FEAR means is to Face Everything And Rise. As a child, everytime you fell you stood up again, why then is it so difficult to do it now, when it matters, when you matter, when your goals and dreams matter the most.
Self-doubt also is one of the reasons people procrastinate. Some of the most famous, wealthiest people in the world have had their ideas rejected, but that did not stop them from pursuing their dreams. The greatest reason for their success is that they had faith in themselves, and their idea. Even if nobody else believes in you, what matters the most is that you believe in yourself. Self-doubt can deny you the life you dream about. Your freedom lies in your ability to conquer your challenges, the biggest challenge for many being self-doubt.
Although almost everyone dreams of a better life for themselves and their families, not everyone has what it takes to manifest that better life. By putting off what we can do now, we are putting off what we can have now. We can make excuses that we do not have enough time, or play the blame game, but when we truly think about it, not taking action is just a sign of laziness. Everyone can stay the same and choose to live a mediocre life, but if you want to have a prosperous life you must be willing to do the things you haven’t done before, you must be willing to sacrifice your time and most importantly stop blaming.
In order for you to move from a life of procrastination to a life of prosperity, overcoming fear, self doubt and laziness is key. “There is no one in your way except you.”
