Words of Wisdom

I'm a bit of a procrastinator ... okay I'm 100% a procrastinator. I rarely have any sense of urgency and I'm always of the "it can get done tomorrow" mindset. Unfortunately, that state of mind has allowed me to become stagnant and I'm not happy with that. Some time ago a soror of mine sent me this inspirational quote. I now take it with me everywhere and recite it daily as my new mantra. I hope this inspires you as well!

"I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labour of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person." - Og Mandino
