CHAPTER 8 DECISION: THE MASTERY OF PROCRASTINATION
The Seventh Step toward Riches
LACK OF DECISION is the major cause of failure. Procrastination is the opposite of DECISION.
Think and Grow Rich Lessons offer us the opportunity to test our ability to make quick DECISIONS.
Once we get accurate, truthful information, we must create a habit of REACHING DECISIONS PROMPTLY, and changing them infrequently. Napoleon Hill's analysis of several hundred people making well over one million dollars, revealed this to be true.
Henry Ford had this habit.
Most people who don't make enough money for their needs usually are influenced by the "opinions" of others. They let newspapers, neighbors, friends and family do their thinking for them. Influenced by others cause You to have no DESIRE of Your own.
You have a brain of Your own. Use it and reach Your own decisions.
Close Your mouth and open Your ears and eyes. Post the following someplace where You can see it daily.
"TELL THE WORLD WHAT YOU INTEND TO DO, BUT FIRST SHOW IT."
Courage is required to reach our full potential.
It took courage for Lincoln to issue his Proclamation of Emancipation.
It took courage by Socrates to drink the poison rather than compromise his beliefs.
Gen Robert E. Lee's decision to go over to the South took great courage.
It took great courage that was reached in Philadelphia, July 4, 1776 by those 56 men who signed the Constitution.
It takes great courage to stand up against friend and family who think You are crazy and totally wrong. If You make the DECISION to be here a year from now, regardless of the challenges, You will find the strength to overcome the "opinions" of others.
You have available, the tools needed to prevent PROCRASTINATION. It takes person who is COACHABLE to use those tools. When the do we can GUARANTEE their success.
I am grateful for Linda and Michael Dlouhy, for having created Mentoring For Free and the members who make up our 8 weekly calls, forming a master mind group in each case.
I am also grateful for the people who have downloaded my ebook and formed a master mind group with me.
