Is Procrastination Keeping You From Making Money?

Procrastination is the opposite of decision. How many of us actually have conquered procrastination?

According to author Napoleon Hill who wrote Think and Grow Rich, says that people who have accumulated fortunes well beyond the million dollar mark, have the habit of reaching decisions promptly and if necessary, changed those decisions slowly. People who fail to accumulate money have the habit of reaching decisions slowly, if at all and changed those decisions often and rapidly.

He goes on to say that a majority of people who fail to accumulate money are easily influenced by the opinion of others. How often have you set your goals on something, only to have someone else destroy your desire?

Everyone has numerous opinions and if you are willing to listen and accept them, it will change your thinking. Once you reach a decision, you cannot be influenced by someone else's opinion. If you do, you will not succeed in any undertaking nor will you have desire of your own.

Well meaning people that are around you may destroy your confidence or ridicule your desires without realizing it. Maybe they will voice their opinion, or use humor, but the outcome will be the same.

Once you reach a decision, don't share it with too many people. Make sure the group you do choose to share decisions with are those who will be in complete harmony with your purpose.

If your goal is to make money, keep in mind that others are looking for the same opportunity to accumulate money. If you talk about your plans too freely, you may find that if you procrastinate, someone else has beaten you to your goal by making a quick decision.

So, a decision to keep silent about your plans is a good beginning. Show what you plan to do to accumulate money, before you tell the world.
