“Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead NOW. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the “someday I will” philosophy” – Dennis Waitley
A year from now, you will arrive but the question is where. Every single day that passes is time and opportunity lost, which can never be regained. When you look back, you would wish you had started today. Some people are panicking today because they procrastinated yesterday. Procrastination is called the thief of time and opportunity’s assassin. Make a decision today that your opportunities in life will not be buried in one of those graves called procrastination. If you wait until you are ready, till all conditions are perfect, you might wait for the rest of your life.
