Do you find yourself:
Constantly waiting for the right moment?
Making a vow not to buy new clothes until you reach a certain weight?
Waiting till the summer comes before you start a new exercise regime?
We all do these things and sadly none of us should.
The fact is that you really don’t need to wait. You don’t need to wait for the summer. You don’t need to wait for the new clothes. And you certainly don’t need to wait for the right moment or abilities. What you need to do is grab your CANDo attitude and boldly go-get or do it.
All this waiting comes from your Inner Imp Procrastination. Because those things that you’ve been putting off are making the likes of your Inner Imps Fear and Doubt squirm, Procrastination is employing delaying tactics. He has you distracted and is keeping you busy with anything and everything he can find that will stop you from doing this thing you’ve been putting off.
If there is something you want to do – and we all have something – you need to grab the reins back from Procrastination.
Despite what he’s telling you, you don’t need:
- the right moment;
- to reach the right weight;
- to be better at a certain skill;
- or particular weather conditions.
What you need, is to just do it!
Living a happy and successful life often isn’t so much about doing the “right thing”, it’s about doing “something” to shake things up and start travelling the road to where you want to be.
Go and do something today that you’ve been putting off.
It doesn’t matter if it’s buying a new dress, starting a new exercise class, asking out that cute guy at work for a coffee or calling the local college to find out about that evening class you’ve been toying with the idea of doing.
Stop waiting for the right moment and start doing.
