Procrastination is the thief of time, the thief of happiness and the king of self-sabotage.
I was given a great lesson from my cousin Jermaine when we lost him to cancer two years ago. We would have been the same age. What I learned from him was the power of living and doing NOW. His cancer diagnosis taught him to do what matters, to travel and experience life in a way he hadn’t before. To stop putting things off. To live a life with purpose. He was one of the reasons I chose to quit my job and spend my energy and time nurturing my own business and doing something that makes a difference to others.
There will always be a million reasons why you can’t. Sometimes we simply have to step outside of our exhausting internal debate and just do it. To go with our gut, to live in the moment. To seek what we need, want and what we deserve.
We put off to next time so frequently, we outsource our happiness to the future to next year. What if that time doesn’t come? What Jermaine’s premature death taught me is that WE have to start living; Right now, in the present moment.
Take risks, do things outside of our comfort zone and stop outsourcing our happiness for the future. Stop procrastinating. I have 2 last spots on my Marrakech wellness retreat for those who are ready to stop outsourcing their happiness and health to the future. Link in profile 👆🏾#livenow
