Zero Hesitation

day15The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.

~ Amelia Earhart

Today’s inspirational quote speaks to me about the draining effects of procrastination.  Delaying a need.  Putting off the achievement of a goal.  Avoiding a problem.  Each one of these acts stalls our lives.  At least it does mine.  Even worse, by postponing a dream, a goal, or even a problem, it forces us to dawdle through life, sitting on a bench as a spectator.

Some 20 years ago, I decided that I wouldn’t put things off anymore, and to date, I don’t dilly-dally when I need to get something done or if I want to pursue a goal.  Nope.  I just jump in with both feet and get that shit done.  How, you ask?

Tenacity.

No matter the hurdles laid out in front of me, I persistently follow my dreams, my goals, my aspirations.  Sometimes I fail, which forces me to pick myself up and try again.  But more times than not, I succeed.  By sheer doggedness, I push through until I’ve attained what I want most.

This equally applies to problem solving.  Faced with a dilemma, I dig my heels in and fix it.  I don’t hesitate.  I don’t ponder how terrible things are.  I don’t worry that the quandary I’m in will never come to a resolution.  Nope.  I put on my big-girl pants, and push through, head on.  Stubborn.  Determined.  Resolute.

Don’t hesitate in your life.  Grab hold and take yourself to places you never thought you would go.
