Procrastination does more harm than good, if at all. When you procrastinate, you’re purposely pushing back something you’re supposed to do now to a later time.
It could be because your deadline’s still a ways off or the task is too difficult. So, you’ll do the task later when you’re feeling up to it.
While these are all perfectly valid reasons, it still doesn’t excuse the fact that we often tend to forget and therefore run out of time. You may end up turning in some rushed, poor-quality piece of work that will only make you hate yourself.
When you’re reaching for your goals, you need to get rid of procrastination. Do what you can when you can. Don’t wait until the deadline’s close or your back’s against the wall. Don’t procrastinate until you’re left with no other choice but to work on your tasks.
Pessimistic people are toxic. When you’re pessimistic, you only forecast the doom and gloom, you don’t see the light in front of you. It’s like you’ve lost all hope for your dreams – and you haven’t even begun yet!
If you truly want to succeed in life, then you need to get rid of your pessimism. But how?
For starters, you should learn to start thinking positively. Then you should surround yourself with positive people who will egg you on and motivate you to reach for the stars. You’ll then have a supportive cast of friends who will share your excitement and will genuinely root for your success.
When you’re insincere, you come off as a deceitful person. Because that’s what you are – a deceiver. Sincerity comes from the heart. Insincere people will eventually get exposed either through the words that come out of their mouth or their actions.
Either way, you don’t want to be labeled as someone who’s insincere. When you’re chasing your dreams, you better be sincere about it. Otherwise, you’ll only be fooling yourself, and you’ll only be wasting your time.
