Decisions: The Mastery of Procrastination

The Seventh Step Towards Riche's

Hill states:

 

PROCRASTINATION, the opposite of DECISION, is a common enemy which practically every man must conquer.

People who reach decisions quickly, know what they want and they get it.  Leaders in all walks of life DESIDE quickly, and firmly, that is why they are leaders.

INDECISION usually begins when you are a child, and will stay with you through your school years, and sometimes right up into collage, without DEFINITENESS OF PURPOSE.  The school system does not teach or encourage the habit of DEFINITE DECISION.

Every student who enters school should be required to have training in the HABIT OF DECISION, and made to take an examination before moving on to the next grade.

Hill states: "Generally, the youth just out of school seeks any job that can be found. He takes the first place he finds, because he has fallen into the habit of INDECISION. Ninety-eight out of every hundred people working for wages today, are in the positions they hold, because they lacked the DEFINITENESS OF DECISION to PLAN A DEFINITE POSITION, and the knowledge of how to choose an employer."

Keep in mind that most people that you come in contact with, are trying to accumulate money also.  Don't talk about your plans and goals because someone could turn around and PUT IT INTO ACTION AHEAD OF YOU, because you spoke unwisely.

"Let your first decision be to Keep A CLOSED MOUTH AND OPEN EARS AND EYES. You should print the next sentence out in capital letters and put it where you can see it every day.

“TELL THE WORLD WHAT YOU INTEND TO DO, BUT FIRST SHOW IT.”

"This is like saying that “deeds, and not words, are what count most."

"FREEDOM OR DEATH ON A DECISION"

We have to be determined to do whatever it takes, and at any cost.  We have the GOLDEN EGG here at MFF that is going to put Network Marketing on the map for many years to come, so why wouldn't we stake our life on it.

Our fore fathers did it for our freedom, now we have to do it for our children and their children and on down the line.

I truly believe in what Michael and Linda has done for us, and the whole Master Mind Team for what they do to help me.  We are where we are supposed to be. We are at the right place at the right time.  Come take a look at the Golden Egg that we have here at MFF, you WILL make a decision to stay. Like Michael says: be here a year from now or more.  I know I made the decision quickly, and I am sticking around for the long haul.  I know a good thing when I see it.
