Procrastination always stands at an arms length waiting for an opportunity to spoil one’s chance to succeed. It is because of it that many fail exams, or fail to marry when they should or fail to get opportunities or even miss heaven.
Many go through life of failure because they keep waiting for the right time. If there was a right time to do something worthwhile is now. Now is the right time to make decisions, to make goals, to make plans, to serve, to solve problems, to identify opportunities, to say thank you, to appreciate or even to call your lover and tell how you love her. Now is the right time. Time will never be ” Just right”.
Start with what you have at hand. Start where you are, start with the skills you have. If you know diffusion, mix chemicals and make soap, then commercialize, apply the think big rule and succeed. You will find better tools on the way. Do not stop fighting procrastination or else, failure will be a necessity.

Lack of persistence.
Most often we are good starters but the worst finishers. Many always start businesses, making plans, being quick in decision making, being time conscious but soon, they fail to persist.
When temporary failure come knocking at the door, they fly out of the window. Many are prone to giving up at the sight of defeat. Do not fear temporary defeat at all. Instead of quitting, change the plan and go on. Remember not to persist on a wrong plan.
There has never been a substitute of persistence. The person who makes persistence his friend will discover that his enemy, failure, will be tired and departs. Failure will never cope with persistence mixed with imagination. Failure is thus a necessity when persistence lack.

Lack of a well defined power of Decision.
Powerful and successful people in society make decisions promptly and take time to change if they have.
Men who fail, reach decision, if at all, very slowly but often quick to change them.
Most often, indecision leads to procrastination. We will talk more about procrastination in the coming articles. It is however key to note that the world always seem to aid those who have made a decision on what to do. If you want to drive, you must make a definite decision. If you want to live in a good country in a good city, in a good estate, in a good house, with a good wife and kids, then you have to make a definite decision.
Always remember it is better to make a wrong choice and fail rather than not to make one at all. Learn to be quick to decide. Pilate finally killed Jesus because he failed to make a decision quickly on what he knew was right. Decide what you want to do early in the morning, at the start of a week, at the start of the year and be slow to change your decisions.

A person who takes no chances has to take what is left after all are done choosing. This means he or she will never get the best. However, over caution is as bad as under caution.
If you are driving, then suddenly a lorry approaches, what do you do? Do you pull over and wait it to pass? Nay! Use the law of averages and assume it will stick to its track.
Many always fail because they are afraid to make a choice. They take long worrying and weighing. They take years thinking of a plan coz they are over cautious. Be ambitious enough so you manage to choose the best.
We all must have at one point fallen to the wiles of the devil and submitted into temptation. Why did you fall? Think of that day you fell into the temptation. Why did you submit? Is it true you had no ability to overcome?
There is no reason at all why one should fall into temptations. No matter how great the pressure is, there is no big reason as to fall. Not even one. Always remember Satan will use the least advantage you give to destroy and spoil you. Don’t let your mind wander on what will temp you.
It calls for high emotional quotient to win. Always aim to have the right emotions for every moment. When you are under high pressure of temptations, employ an equivalent emotion to say NO. If you want success, learn the art of saying a big No even to the slightest temptation.
SOMETHING FOR NOTHING.
There is a general increase in desire for ” something for nothing.” This gambling instinct is driving millions to failure and failure. Why would you desire to get something for nothing? Why would you gamble? Why would you participate in bet games? Why? Why?
Go on gambling, wasting time, decreasing your thinking ability, losing focus as well as ambition. Go on. But never ask anyone why you will become a failure. Let gambling be for the below average.
You are worth more than mediocre. You can achieve more. Lavarage the power of decision. Decide never to go for ” something for nothing.” Success if for they who solve problems and are kind, loving and helping.
