The 7 Dream Killers Part 2: PROCRASTINATION

 

I¬†will do it-but not now! Procrastination is the habit of postponing to the future things that can be done today. People with great dreams have let them slip out of their hands because of procrastination. The procrastinator always sees tomorrow as the day to “finally get started”. In the end tomorrow becomes a week, a month, a year-and nothing has been done!

If you keep postponing your dreams they will never see the light of day. Whatever we have to do we must begin now. Why? Because tomorrow is promised to nobody. Don’t let procrastination steal your dream.

The 7 Dream Killers Part 1: FEAR

There are many things that hinder people from realizing their true potential, from achieving their goals and dreams. In this series we will look at 7 that are on top of the list of dream killers. Today we look at fear.

The fear of failure, fear of rejection, is often what stands between people and their dreams. If you are too afraid of failure, of being rejected, you will never take action to make your dream a reality. Your dream will die a natural death! You must love your dream so much that no amount of fear will be able to stand in your way. Your desire to succeed must be greater than your fear of failure.

You can be afraid of spiders. That is okay. But you must never be afraid of following after your dream. You need to master the fear. The people who make it in life are not those who don’t feel afraid, it is those who manage the fear. They do what Susan Jeffers says in her book: “feel the fear and do it anyway”.

10 Things to Do if You Want to Be Poor

1. Never wake up early: Keep stretching and turning in bed until you get too hungry to continue dozing. If there are no bedbugs, why hurry to get up?

2. Never plan how to spend your money: Whenever you get money, start spending it right away and when it is finished, try to count and recall how you spent it.

3. Competing: Make sure you wear the latest clothes among all the workers in your office. Whenever your neighbour/friend buys a new phone, car or dress, you get one that is more expensive.

4. Don’t think of saving until you have real big money: How can you save when you earn so little? Those telling you to save are not sympathetic to your burning needs.

5. Don’t engage in activities usually reserved for the ‘uneducated’: How can you, a graduate, engage in petty trade or home- based production? That is for people who never went to school.

6. Don’t think of starting a business until an angel comes from heaven and gives you capital: How do they expect you to invest before you get millions? Even though more than half the businesses in your town were started with a few dollars, you as a smart person can only start with millions.

7. Complain about everything except your own attitude: Blame the system, the government and the banks that refuse to lend you money. They are all bad and do not want you to get rich.

8. Spend more than you earn: To achieve this, buy consumer products in credit and keep borrowing from friends and employer.

9. Get yourself a nice second- hand car that costs more than three times your gross monthly pay: That will surely keep you in debt long enough to hinder the implementation of any plans that could make you accumulate capital.

10. Give your children everything they ask for since you are such a loving parent: They should not struggle for anything because you do not want them to suffer. That way, they will grow up lazy and hence poor enough to ensure they cannot help you in your old age.

If you diligently implement these 10 great rules, you will not fail to invite poverty in great measures to your homestead.
