Did you like the Mark Twain quote?
If you think about it, this is what a lot of us do anyway, right?
We think about a project and keep putting it off each day.
We all know that it's really not going to help grow our home businesses, but we can putting things off.
Now ask yourself this question. How important is it for you to reach your goals?
Are you afraid that you will just waste your time trying to reach your goals?
Well either way you look at it, you're procrastinating. Procrastination is the killer of all businesses because you never start to begin with. How do you expect to get any type of results if you don't start?
This is a serious lesson that I had to learn.
When I first got into network marketing, I didn't do anything for 3 months. It's a coincidence that it takes about that amount of time for someone to quit their business if they don't see any results. But luckily my sponsor kept calling me and I got into action. And as a matter of fact, on that third month I actually made some money.
But what was I thinking during those months?
For starters, I really didn't take it serious. Although I wanted to make more money, I thought having a home business was a joke and the best way to get ahead was to either get a second job or do real estate.
I was also turned off by the word “leader”. I didn't want to be a leader. I just wanted to make more money. Why would I be a leader like a Martin Luther King Jr. or the President of the United States to make more money. I know, I know, I over exaggerated, but I didn't want that responsibility.
Also I just didn't have the confidence that I could do it, even thought I joined. Make sense, right? But I guess deep down inside I felt it was another way, another avenue that could possibly get me to the destination I wanted to get to.
Do your or have you ever felt like I did about home business? Lets see how we can get rid of procrastination so we can start growing our home businesses.
How To Get Rid Of Procrastination And Just Get Started
I've used this example before, but remember when you were a kid and your parents ask you to do chores that you didn't like. They would have to tell you over and over again, sometimes yelling at you, in order to get you to do them. But when it came to doing something that you really like, you were up and adam to go do it, right? It didn't take you no time at all.
But why is that?
Well there are certain activities that we love to do.
In fact we do them at will and no one has to tell us twice to do it.
So when it comes to our home businesses, if we were to find a certain activity that we love to do, do you think we will procrastinate? More than likely no.
When it comes to “The Right Moment”, there is no right moment when it comes to growing your home business. You just get started and make mistakes along the way.
These mistakes is what a lot of us are afraid of, but if you really find certain productive activities that you really like doing, these mistakes won't matter too much.
Because you'll be having too much fun and more focused on the activities within themselves.
