CHAPTER 8 DECISION: THE MASTERY
OF PROCRASTINATION

"Accurate analysis of over 25,000 men and women who had
experienced failure disclosed the fact that the 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. Procrastination, the opposite of decision,
is a common enemy which practically every man must conquer.

A decision is defined as a choice, selection, option,
resolution, alternative
made after thinking carefully. You
could refer to decision as a leap of faith.

Remember, “Faith is blended with the vibration of thought,
the subconscious mind instantly picks up the vibration,
translates it into its spiritual equivalent, and transmits
it to Infinite Intelligence, as in the case of prayer.”
Napoleon Hill

“In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is
the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing,
and the worst thing you can do is nothing.”
Theodore Roosevelt

Procrastination is the action of delaying or postponing
something or the act or habit of procrastinating, or
putting off or delaying, especially something requiring
immediate attention.

“Procrastination is the art of keeping up with yesterday.”
Don Marquis

Standing in the center of the court are two 6’ 6” well
built young players. In the hand of the referee is the
basketball, this is going to be a jump ball. One player is
thinking, “Do I came off my right or left foot. I wonder,
how high will the ref throw the ball? I did not jump high
enough or fast enough the last time.” The other is only
thinking, “Go for the ball, go for the ball!”

Now, which player do you think is more likely to tip the ball
first. You are correct if you decided on the player who focuses
on going for the ball. Why? Because he of resolved to just go
for it, and not procrastinate by being lost in the “what ifs”.

We come to network marketing’s center court with a bucket full
of “what ifs”. I have never done anything like this before,
what if I fail? No one I know has done this either, what will
my family and friends think? “Only a few at the top make any
money, RIGHT?”

At Mentoring for Free, we are given the tools, support, a system,
and a harmonious mastermind to approach the center court with
confidence. We can be the decision-maker we were made to be.
Here we can “Go for the BALL”

Thanks to Linda and Michael Dlouhy for being the decision-maker
they are in building the system enabling us to grow into being
decision-makers. Bob Shoaf many thanks for being a friend and a
tremendous mentor. To each of you who decide each week to
participate thanks for your shared wisdom. My heart gratitude
to everyone who downloaded “Success in 10 Steps” and communicates
with me.
