Procrastination. It is soooo human. It is sooo seductive. If we just put something off, we feel like we don’t have to stress about it. But, if we delay, dawdle, postpone, ignore, we actually deceive ourselves.
Why? Procrastination is magic. It is based on illusion.
Yes. Because you think that it costs you nothing to drag your feet.
But procrastination is amazingly costly!!!!!!
The longer you wait, the more you lose. The longer you dawdle, the more you squander your self respect.
This is especially true if you put off focusing on your money and its role in your future. The longer you wait to take steps to improve your finances, the more money you lose.
Good news. If you stop procrastinating, you could have your money working for you. Your Hot Flash Stash of Cash could be building up for you.
Bad news. If you continue procrastinating, for instance ignoring your credit card debt, you will squander amazing amounts of your money on interest payments and fees.
Sooooooo………….Stop procrastinating. Start to take control.
If you, yourself, can’t get past the seduction of delay, (and can’t DIY within a month of reading this), consult a professional.
Conferring with a professional should not be a strange idea. After all, you turn to a professional to cut and style your hair, or paint your toenails. You go to a professional to take care of your teeth…….So, if you don’t floss daily, that dental professional can help you, no matter how challenging the problem.
Your money challenges, right there on your procrastination list, can be deftly handled by a trained, experienced professional. S/he can clarify what you need to do, give you a set of steps to take, and support you while you get you get your finances under control. And s/he can help you with that huge challenge– having enough money to pay for everything you need for the rest of your very long life. If you want the dignity and self respect that financial security brings, it is time to consult a professional.
So what are you waiting for?
