Some people need a wake up call to wake up! Why is it that so many people wait for a crisis to occur before they finally wake up? What is it about having to hit rock bottom to finally make a change? No one really likes to change but it’s the only really constant in life.
Procrastination only means that you do not respect and like yourself enough to do the things that will give you a life of a higher value. You might be afraid of the fear of failure, which is really the fear of being criticized, so you don’t begin and put it off. Day after day, you want to start but that fear subconsciously keeps you paralyzed. You make up all kinds of excuses why you can’t. Then before you know it, years go by and boom, some sort of crisis hits. It could be a financial, health, or relationship catastrophe.
At first the universe gives you a little nodge letting you know to start taking some action. Then, if you ignore it, you might get a louder alarm trying to wake you up. But if you continue to hit the snooze button, a crisis will interrupt your life. So, why wait? Action conquers fear. Don’t delay, start today! Need support? It’s advisable to hire a coach. who is your accountability partner and protagonist to guide you on your journey. I have a 30 day program that will jump start your life! Now is your time!

A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise man.
I think one of the biggest fears we have is looking like a fool or being criticized. We don’t like to look, act or be different. Most people like to fit in and conform.
I remember being back in school, I was afraid to ask a question because I didn’t want to look foolish. But then someone was bold enough to ask the exact question I wanted to ask and everyone was happy that they did because most of the students didn’t understand what the teacher was saying.
Now I have learned to step outside my comfort zone, have confidence in my abilities and know there are no stupid questions.
What is it about taking a risk to look foolish that we are so afraid of? People made fun of Karl Benz, the creator of the automobile Mercedes Benz back in 1886. He actually had to take out his car at night to test drive it so people wouldn’t laugh and ridicule him. Or Gugliemo Marconi, an inventor and electrical engineer who pioneered work on long distance radio transmissions. His friends had him institutionalized thinking he was nuts to think he could send messages through the air. There are many such stories of people who took the risk in doing something, if they believed strongly in it.
What is it that you would like to accomplish but are afraid to do. Take the risk, believe in yourself and you could be the fool laughing all the way to the bank. Go for it.
