The only thing I hate about my financial consulting business is feeling like I'm freaking begging people to act in their own best interest. Don't get me wrong. As an entrepreneur, I do not mind asking for money. The sales process doesn't bother me. I know that it is about helping people and being honest with them if you can't help. No worries. I do mind feeling like I'm begging, however, and I refuse to do it any longer. It's ridiculous.
One thing I've noticed from people in various walks of life is those who succeed (achieve meaningful goals) develop the habit of taking massive action quickly while those who fail have the habit of waiting, waiting and then delaying some more.
"Have a bias toward action - let's see something happen now. You can break that big plan into small steps and take the first step right away." - Indira Gandhi
I get excited when I see people move. It breaks my heart to see people delay and delay and refuse to do even small things that could change their lives. You could set aside $5 or $10 a month towards something important, but won't give up Starbucks. You could start a college fund for your kids but won't turn off the cable for a few months. If you're a parent, you're teaching your children poverty and mediocrity by your inaction. Teach them a better way. Do something! If not for you, then for them.
