Overcoming Procrastination

I am not suggesting that I will not procrastinate ever again!

But in this very important instance, I faced my self doubt, my fear of the unknown, and more likely, the worry about what others would think and just went ahead, put myself and all that I stand for on the line!

It was a revelation!

Such a sense of achievement!

And the overwhelming understanding (finally) that I am in charge of my own destiny.

That it is only my own programs and beliefs that hold me back from achieving all that I want to be and do!

How did I realistically think I would be able to get traction if I only sat and thought about all the things I needed to do instead of just taking that step!!

Sounds easy doesn’t it? How many times have we heard – JUST GET ON AND DO IT!

But we know that it isn’t that easy!

There have many so many times in my life I when I have been paralysed by procrastination.

Did I miss out on opportunities? Did I put myself under undue pressure before taking action? Did I stay in situations when I should have moved on?

Perhaps!

Who knows what may have been. All the “what if’s” however can’t change the actions of my past, but I can ensure that I continue to be the best that I can be today, that I do my best to take action and importantly, accept the outcome.

There is no good or bad, there is only learning!!
