Mastery of Procrastination

The seventh step tp riches that Napoleon Hill talks about is THE  MASTERY OF PROCRASTINATION. In his analysis of over 25,000 men and women who had experienced failure, at the top of the list was their lack of decision. Procrastination, which is the opposite of Decision, is common to everyone and something we all must decide to conquer.

A further analysis of several hundred men and women who had become multi-millionaires showed that these successful people made decisions promptly and changed decisions slowly. He goes on to say that people who fail to accumulate wealth, without exception, have the habit of reaching decisions very slowly, if at all, and changing these decision quickly and often. To me, this is such a profound statement and a huge insight on one of the attributes of successful people.

The majority of people who fail to accumulate money are generally easily influenced by the “opinions” of others. They permit the media and  friends and neighbors to do their thinking for them. Opinions are easy to come by. Everyone has an opinion about something but if you allow other peoples opinions to influence your decisions, it’s a pretty good chance you won’t succeed in your undertaking, much less turning your desire into wealth.

Procrastination will not be an issue for us if we strive to just make a decision. I remember my dad telling us boys to just make a decision and then convince yourself that you made the best decision. DON’T PROCRASTINATE.

Have an awesome day and live life with passion.
