The Cost Of Your Procrastination Is Your Future Wealth
I was talking with a friend on the phone the other day. She was telling me that she is really afraid to make a wrong choice in regards to her money. Even though she knows that she’s smart and makes good life choices, she also has a certain hesitation in regards to her money. Like maybe she really doesn’t really know what she’s doing. Maybe other people are actually better at their money than she is with hers.
She mentioned to me that she’s been dragging her feet in regards to a particular investment decision. She wants to invest more, save more, make more advanced investing decisions, but instead she’s stuck and second guessing herself. She said very matter-of-factly, “the cost of my inaction is my future wealth”.
Can I get an amen?
The more conversations I have with women about their money, the more I find out just how scared they are. Not only are they scared to make financial decisions, but they’re also scared to make a wrong decision. Here’s the thing, you are an amazing woman. You know how to do a gazillion things. When it comes to things like money and investing, you don’t know what you don’t know, and that’s ok. At some point in time you have to trust that you have the ability to make good choices.
Your procrastination is not only costing you precious time but also money. The opportunity cost to NOT investing pays a heavy price as well.
The next time you waffle or procrastinate over a financial decision, ask yourself what it’s costing you. Is it costing you precious that you could be investing? Or maybe it’s costing you the money that you could have saved?
With all the love in my heart I say to you… Stop friggin’ stalling, because it’s costing you your future.
