The Procrastinating Perfectionist

By Pete Grand

Are you a procrastinating perfectionist? I once read an article dealing with the fear of failure and success. The author described it as the following: "The curse of the procrastinating perfectionist". Boy did I ever associate myself with that statement. I was the kind of guy who would always wait around for the perfect opportunity to come by without attempting anything less than perfect. Did that opportunity ever come by? Not at all... In fact only once I realized what I was doing did opportunities start appearing in my life.

Are you someone like this? Do you wait around hoping to achieve something perfect? Let me tell you a little secret. It's never going to happen. We simply do not live in a perfect world. Let me tell you something else to try to motivate you.

Imagine the following: you are an old, crippled, lonely man. You have been waiting around almost a century for your dream girl to walk into your life. You are still dreaming of her because she has of course, never showed up. The saddest part is that it doesn't matter anymore. You'd be too old to make love to her anyway.

Wake up! You're still reasonably young! Don't wait until you're 90 years old and unable to do anything. You need to realize this today!

Don't let your procrastination stop you from going after what you want. And especially do not let any fears stop you. The sooner you face your fears, the sooner you'll improve yourself and eventually get what you want. You need to go out there in life and realize that if you want to achieve any success you're going to have to experience failure. If you don't believe me then read the following quote:

"I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. And I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is precisely why I succeed." -- Michael Jordan

Failure is not final. So stop waiting around for that perfect opportunity to come by your way. Stop procrastinating! Go out there, face your fears, and go after what you want. If you need more tips visit my website to read more of my articles.
