THE MASTERY OF PROCRASTINATION

The Seventh Step toward Riches

ACCURATE ANALYSLIS OF OVER 25,000 men and women who had 

experienced failure disclosed the fact that LACK OF DECISION was 

near the head of the list of the 30 major causes of FAILURE.  This is no 

mere statement of a theory -- it is a fact.

Analysis of several hundred people who had accumulated fortunes well

beyond the million dollar mark disclosed the fact that every one of them

had the habit of REACHING DECISIONS PROMPTLY, and of changing

these decisions SLOWLY, if and when they were changed.  People who

fail to accumulate money, without exception, have the habit of reaching 

decisions, IF AT ALL, very slowly, and of changing these decisions

quickly and often.

DEFINITENESS OF DECISION always requires courage, sometimes very

great courage .  The 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence

staked their lives on the DECISION  to affix their signatures to that

document.  The person who reaches a DEFINITE DECISION to procure

the particular job, and make life pay the price he asks,  does not stake

his life on that decision, he stakes his ECONOMIC FREEDOM.  Financial

Independence, riches, desirable business and professional positions are

not within reach of the person who neglects or refuses to EXPECT, PLAN

and DEMAND these things.  The person who desires riches, in the same

spirit that Samuel Adams desired freedom for the Colonies, is sure to 

accumulate wealth.

Thanks to Michael and Linda Dlouhy for providing this platform for all of

us to learn and grow into the people that we were meant to  be.

Love to all
