This Famous 'Success Roadblock' Is Killing Your Dreams

Aug 17, 2007
If you want to become a successful entrepreneur, you will find out sooner or later, that you must ask yourself this ironic question:

Am I afraid of success?

A very famous fortune 500 executive once said that "Some people are great at coming up with ideas, but they don't have the guts to try. It's like, they're walking on eggs, carefully, hoping to make it safely into death".

That is a very powerful image. Read over it a few times until it is etched into your memory permanently.

When you feel yourself starting to procrastinate, or worrying about failure, think about these very powerful words. Let them flow through your mind... then ask yourself, are you walking on eggshells and hoping to make it safely to death?

Is that how you want to look back on your life? That you where afraid to take chances, and it cost you your dreams?

I have always believed that it is better to regret something you have done, than regret something you haven't done.

Who cares if you make a mistake in your business? We all make mistakes, even marketers who make millions of dollars each year. No one is immune from making bad decisions.

Start focusing on what you DO want out of your life and your business.

Stop trying to find the perfect idea and pick the one you think is right for you. Trust yourself, believe that you are capable of making decisions on your own. Then pursue this idea until you have achieved success, or if you are certain it is doomed to failure, then and only then should you move on to your next idea.

You don't need a complicated 'system' to start 'focusing' and getting results in your new business.

Here's EXACTLY what I do (and it's ALL that I do) every day to fight procrastination:

1. USE A "TO-DO" LIST EVERY DAY and update it every day. List your 'to-do's by priority (A, B, C, etc). Check off the one's you accomplish each day and add the one's you didn't complete to tomorrow's to-do list. Keep doing that for 30 days and you'll see how much more focused you become.

2. Before doing your to-do list ask yourself this question, "What EXACTLY do I have to do today to make $x today. Then make your list accordingly. Focus on the tasks that will help you to make money and grow your business. You must learn to prioritize the tasks that are most important to your business.

That's all you need to do. Choose to do something today, no matter how small it might be. Whatever it is, it's one step closer to your goal. Then do something tomorrow that will take you one step closer - and the day after that- and the day after that. All the little things you do will add up and you will have battled procrastination and won.
