After listening to and reading this chapter, I started remembering times in my life when I certainly procrastinated. I am a talker and definitely need to hone my listening skills. I have no doubt that I am a good person but realize that I have much to learn if I want to be successful in a non-conventional business, which is where I want to be.
Having said this, something must be starting to sink in as I go through these lessons as I have been dealing with a diverticulitis attack for the last two days and seen a doctor today. I did not feel like listening or reading anything today, but I did listen to a 15-minute meditation MP3 which calmed my body and despite my discomfort, I felt an urge to get this chapter read and get my lesson posted. I don't want to be a procrastinator, but someone who has the ability to make quick decisions and firm decisions like Mr. Ford, be able to make a plan and stick to it and get it done.
I have made a plan to pay my credit cards off by the end of this year and it is going to be tight budget wise to get this done, but I am determined to get this done. I have had trouble sticking to many decisions in my life, but I believe that sticking to this one will be a very good start to being able to make decisions and stick to them with respect to business once I accomplish this feat.
I am very thankful for this group and the fact that we do this chapter by chapter. I thought I had failed at many things I tried to do, but realize that it wasn't me, but the people who were mentoring me at the time. If they had taken time to work with me in a manner easier for my brain to understand and use, I believe things would have turned out much differently. Instead, when I faltered at building teams and building businesses I tried, my team just quit talking to me and I just fell into the shadows never to be thought of again. Because of this group, and Michael, I am feeling much better about myself and where my future can go with baby steps and more work on myself.
