You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) American Poet and Essayist
When you feel enthusiasm to do something, it means you’ve lined up the Energy, and you are being inspired to take action from that point of alignment. When you don’t feel like doing it, don’t push yourself, because your effort is not worth it. But, when you line up the Energy, the feeling of procrastination goes away.
Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in San Rafael, CA on July 31, 2005
He who deliberates fully before taking a step will spend his entire life on one leg.
How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it's afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?
When resistance is gone, the demons are gone.
Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.
What is the definition of procrastination? It means: I can feel within my Energy sensor that this action is not in perfect alignment at this time.
Abraham-Hicks, from a workshop in Boston, MA, USA October 10, 1999
Procrastination is the thief of time.
You may never know what results will come from your action. But if you do nothing there will be no result.
In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing. After all, if we do the wrong thing, at least we can learn.
Some people are making such thorough preparation for rainy days that they aren't enjoying today's sunshine.
We cannot put off living until we're ready. Life is fired at us point blank.
Jose Ortega Y Gasset (1883-1956) Spanish philosopher and essayist
Hesitation is based on our desire to make the right decision. When we hesitate, we must ask ourselves: “Am I hesitating because I am afraid to be wrong? Or am I hesitating because my intuition is telling me to slow down?”
There is a big difference.
The first is based in fear, the second in fearlessness.
from Fearless Living, by Rhonda Britten (about Rhonda Britten)
Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.
Mother Teresa (1910-1997) Albanian missionary
The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.
I have spent my days stringing and unstringing my instrument, while the song I came to sing remains unsung.
Waste your money and you’re only out of money, but waste your time and you’ve lost part of your life.
