I have a Plan
Plans and ideas are a dime a dozen. Everyone can come up with plans and ideas. Quite often these are nothing more than wishful thinking. Not that there is anything innately flawed about the plans or ideas – but because, these people don’t go beyond grandstanding.
“I want to exercise.”
Then, they complain about not having the time. But it’s so easy to exercise. All they have to do is to use the stairs, instead of the elevator, to reach their apartment. Alternatively, get off one MRT station or bus-stop earlier and walk the rest of the way home. Once home, they cool down, relax, take a shower and they’re done!
“I have a plan to lose weight.”
Good idea but that never takes off. There are many reasons why one cannot lose weight. Lack of exercise. Too much intake of food and/or the wrong type of food. It could even be one’s genes or a medical situation. Check it out. Identify the root cause and you’re nearer to attaining your goal.
“I have an idea on how to do that.”
Okay. Do it! Do something – anything! Even if you fail, you’re one step closer to success. Every successful person had traveled the path of failure.
And yet, most people – the vast majority, the ninety-nine percent – do not work their plans. You know such people – people who always “plan” to do something “tomorrow” or “next week” or “next year”.
The root cause is Procrastination.
Procrastination has buried more great plans than bad luck, bad timing, or even incompetence. You see, even if a person is incompetent, if he did something and even if he failed miserably, he would still be one step closer to success than someone who never took that first step.
Here is a little secret.
Procrastination is not a disease – it’s a habit! It is a human condition born out of one’s environment, the company one keeps and one’s learned habits
Here is a second secret.
ALL of us can unlearn debilitating habits as surely as we can learn empowering habits.
You can discard the bad and acquire the good habits.
Moreover, ALL of us are talented beyond what we believe or even dare to believe. All we need to do is to discover what our talents are and exploit them for our benefit, our success.
