DO NOT WAIT
Every year around this time, I see a lot of people start to put off until next year the changes they need to make in their life. They wrap it up with a nice bow that says "New Year's Resolution", but really, it is simply procrastination.
Don't get me wrong, resolutions aren't a bad thing, but if you're not willing to do something now, you will not be willing to do something then. Here are a few interesting statistics.
· Every year over 65% of Americans make New Year's resolutions
· 49% of them have infrequent success
· 24% try and fail each year
· 8% are successful in achieving their resolutions
So, what this means is if you are in the roughly 208 million people that set a resolution every year, your odds of being successful are 1 in 13.
I believe more people would be successful if they developed a lifestyle of growth instead of aiming for a “one day, in the future” type of plan. If you commit to growth and to making the changes that present themselves to you on a daily basis, you will be successful.
We all have that thought that we can start later. We can wait for that perfect timing. We can have a new chance if we just hold off until January first.
I have an important question for you: What if your breakthrough was tomorrow, but you missed it because you waited to start? Some people wait their whole life for a breakthrough or an opportunity, but they miss it because they never actually get off the starting block. Procrastination is the thief of opportunity. We will never see what we need, because we still wait to start.
I encourage you to start today. This is the time to begin making the changes you want to make. The things you need to do are only waiting on you. Your opportunity could be right around the corner. Your breakthrough could be right after the starting point. DO NOT WAIT! The rest of your year CAN BE the best of your year.
