By now I have come to realise that all of my dreams, my plans and even my goals, all is worthless without action stop procrastination
I will act now. No matter how many books I read or websites I visit, it is only by putting my plans into action that I will be able to breathe life into my dreams and plans and give my goals a living force.
I will stop procrastination and I will act now. There is a very true saying that goes “He who hesitates is lost.” Therefore, I will always act promptly and without hesitation. Another saying goes, “It is better to have tried and failed than not to have tried at all.” These two sayings I will bear in mind as I go about the tasks of today, as I know now that tomorrow never comes and I must not put off until tomorrow what I can achieve today. Let me act now, no matter whether my actions bring happiness or success or not. I will not be a procrastinator anymore.
I will stop procrastination and I will act now. Henceforth I will repeat these words each hour, each day, every day until the words become as much a habit as my breathing. Once I have these words firmly etched in my memory, the actions which follow will become as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. “With these words, I can condition my mind to perform every act necessary for my success.” Og Mandino
I will stop procrastination and I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again, and again. I will say them when I awaken and then I will leap from my bed, when a failure of a man will sleep yet another hour.
I will stop procrastination and I will act now. When I enter the market place, I will say these words and immediately confront my first prospect, while the failure ponders yet a possibility of rebuff. I will stop procrastinating.
I will stop procrastination and I will act now. When I face a closed door, I will say these words and walk up to the door and boldly knock, whilst the failure will only wait outside with fear and trepidation. I am overcoming procrastination.
“I will stop procrastination and I will act now. When I’m tempted to quit and begin again tomorrow, I will say these words and I will immediately act to consummate another sale.”
“I will stop procrastination and I will act now. Only action determines my value in the market place. And to multiply my value, I will multiply my actions. I will walk where the failure fears to walk. I will work when the failure seeks rest. I will act now, for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and will be lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the individual. I will act now and become the greatest salesman in the world!”
