CHAPTER 8 DECISION: THE MASTERY
OF PROCRASTINATION

The majority of people who fail to accumulate money sufficient for 
their needs, are, generally, easily influenced by the “opinions” 
of others. They permit the newspapers and the “gossiping” neighbors 
to do their “thinking” for them. “Opinions are the cheapest 
commodities on earth. Everyone has a flock of opinions ready to be 
wished upon anyone who will accept them. If you are influenced by 
“opinions” when you reach DECISIONS, you will not succeed in any 
undertaking, much less in that of transmuting YOUR OWN DESIRE into 
money.

If you are influenced by the opinions of others, you will have no 
DESIRE of your own. Keep your own counsel, when you begin to put into 
practice the principles described here, by reaching your own decisions 
and following them. Take no one into your confidence, EXCEPT the members 
of your “Master Mind” group and be very sure in your selection of this 
group, that you choose ONLY those who will be in COMPLETE SYMPATHY AND 
HARMONY WITH YOUR PURPOSE.

How many decisions will a person make on a given day. Make a guess 50, 
100 or 1000. I have concluded that we are made some decision every waking 
second of the day, maybe some when asleep. How can I say this, because 
every thought, desire, dream or action is a decision? In fact, when not 
thinking or doing anything is a decision.


I have just spent 5 days with Connie in the hospital in Tennessee. I 
had no problems with making the decision to stop everything I was doing 
to be there. Due to her state of mind I had talk to the doctor and make 
decision for her health care. Many of the daily decision I would make 
were put on hold such those calls I would normally be doing, or those post
on Facebook or LinkedIn had to wait. This was a decision made from a deep 
love and commitment for Connie, and I would do it all again,

I have decided to disregard to “They Sayers” and their opinions, those 
know and have the answers of how everyone should think and act. They fill 
the airways and print words with fake news and hateful words meant to 
harm not build. As Michael Dlouhy has said “take about people and not dreams 
or ideas”.

I am regretful to Linda and Michael Dlouhy, your decisions to build the
Mentoring for Free mastermind continues to change lives as it has for me.
