If you find yourself stuck in the waiting game and not achieving your goals as quickly as you like, this is for you!
I’m the child of a constant procrastinator.
Through the years I have come to realize that waiting for whatever reason can very well be a sign of procrastination. If you wait long enough, of course something will be newer, better, different, cheaper, whatever.
However by waiting is an act of stillness in the decision process. You never get to the next goal because you’re so busy being stuck where you are now.
I have made it a point to recognize the “procrastination” signals in my life. This way I can (do my best) to break through the frustrating stillness and achieve my goals faster.
It’s the only way I can get to the next level in my business and be the catalyst to give you the kickstart to get you going to where you want to be.
Are you self-sabotaging your success?
While I’m hanging in my husband’s waiting room, the bigger picture idea of waiting to make a decision came to mind.
This is something that so many entrepreneurs struggle with: they’re always waiting.
Waiting for, “well, I’ll do this when…”
It’s so easy to put things off by making excuses for yourself. Unfinished ideas of what’s not going to happen because, “maybe this time, maybe if I wait two more days or another week…”
The more you wait, the more you put things off in your business, the more you make excuses, the more you’re never going to get to that next level that you want to get to.

End the waiting cycle and start the doing cycle.
The next time you feel stuck, ask yourself, “Is what you’re waiting for legitimate? Or is it just an excuse to not move forward?”
It could be an excuse for something you really don’t want to do or something you are afraid of doing.
Unless it’s legitimately something that you’re not making an excuse for, you need to sit back and realize, “why are you waiting to do this?”
Are you trying to lose 10 pounds?
Let’s use weight as an example because it was something that I was struggling with.
If you really wanted to lose 10 pounds, you would go the extra distance to make an effort. You would join and stick to a weight loss program, use a food tracker to check calories and carbs, exercise more, cut back on calories… be more proactive in your action plan.
If one or more of anything you tried and didn’t work, you would investigate why it didn’t bring the desired results, determine what you need to do going forward, and stick with so you can drop a size.
None of the action steps to really losing 10lbs involves waiting to see what happens.
So you gotta do what you gotta do.
The same thought patterns of procrastinating at a half assed pace can be your excuses for not taking the next step in other areas of your life or business.
Is “waiting” the excuse for not growing as a human being?
Is “waiting” your excuse for not making the extra money that you want to make so you can start living the life that you’re dreaming about?
You need to really go back in there and realize what’s holding you back.
Usually, the more you hold back, the more times you wait on opportunities in your business or any kind of thing, the price goes up. So now you’re not only waiting but you actually end up paying more. So you’re losing out twice.
There are 3.48 billion people online right now in 2019.
That is freaking insane, right?
3.48 billion people online (according to Datareportal).
So if you’re waiting to…
- Get your message out there
- Show up more by being more visible
- Start to work on whatever you need to bring more your client to you
You are getting buried in the noise of the other 3.48 billion people out there.
And that’s just silly, right?
There’s no time better than now to stop making excuses so you can try to switch things out for what you want to do, right?
I can probably help you position yourself to be seen so that you can attract what you want to attract.

Hello hello hello, I am coming
in from my husbands office,
from his waiting room.
And I thought waiting,
waiting is a great idea
to talk to you about right?
So if you guys are new
to me, I’m Sharon Haver
and I help other talented,
smart, savvy entrepreneurs
get to the next level in their business.
I am definitely a catalyst
to give you the kickstart
in your tush or whatever
you need to get you going
to where you need to be.
So right now, I’m in my husband’s office.
I’m actually helping him
out today because the person
who usually works here didn’t come in.
She was sick or I think she
had a party or something.
So anyway I’ve been helping out here
and I’m sitting here in
his waiting room which
as you can tell, it’s a really,
it’s kind of pretty office right?
Some of those magazine racks.
So anyway, and I started
getting the idea of waiting.
Because this is something
that so many entrepreneurs
have a problem with is that
they’re always waiting.
They’re waiting for
well I’ll do this when.
I’ll do that yeah, I’m
not sure it’s right.
I’m not sure, you make so many sort
of unfinished excuses for yourself.
Unfinished ideas of what’s
not gonna happen because maybe
this time, maybe if I wait
two more days or another week.
Or maybe next quarter,
next year, I don’t know.
So what actually happens
is that the more you wait,
change hands here, the more you wait.
The more you put things
off in your business,
the more you make excuses,
the more you’re never gonna
get to that next level, to that next stop
that you wanna get to.
So what you need to start doing is really
questioning yourself when you’re waiting.
Like is what you’re
waiting for legitimate?
Or is it just an excuse?
An excuse for something you don’t wanna do
that you are afraid of doing
that you don’t wanna get in touch with.
We had a funny thing here
today, there was a patient
who my husband said can
you follow up on her,
can you give her a call?
And I said sure, so he
said she has a tendency
to forget her appointments.
And I would look and he
pointed at her chart.
And I’m like what is that?
I was like she’s 98,
going on 99 years old.
Woman has every reason in
the world to forget right?
So I call her up, she’s totally lovely
and she’s like I’m really
sorry, I completely forgot.
I would like to come in next week.
I said okay do you want to
make another appointment now?
And she said, well I’m
an old lady and I forget
so I’m gonna wait until it’s a couple days
before I’m gonna make the
appointment then, is that ok?
I said sure, that is a
totally legitimate reason
for waiting, the woman
is almost 99 years old.
So, unless you have something
that you’re not making
an excuse for but you’re
actually putting off
for some dopey reason.
You need to sit back and
realize, are you waiting
to lose 10 pounds?
Are you trying to lose 10 pounds?
Because if you really
wanted to lose 10 pounds,
and I’ve just lost double
that, you make an effort.
You really as much as you want to do it,
you cut back on your calories.
With me, I really cut back on carbs.
Which I wasn’t eating a
lot of but I completely
obliterated them and kick started it.
So you gotta go what you gotta do.
Is that your excuse for not losing weight?
Is that your excuse for not taking
the next step in your business?
Is that the excuse for not
growing as a human being?
Is that your excuse for
not making the extra money
that you wanna make so
you can start living
the life that you’re dreaming about?
So you need to really go
back in there and realize
what are you holding back on?
Because usually the more
times you hold back,
the more times you wait on opportunities,
your business or any kind of
things, the price goes up.
So not your waiting and you
actually end up paying more.
So you’re kind of losing
out once on stuff.
And what’s happening now is there’s
3.48 billion people online right now.
That is freaking insane right,
3.48 billion people online.
So if you’re waiting to
get your message out there.
If you’re waiting to show up more.
If you’re waiting to
really really go in there
and work on your branding,
work on your appearance.
Work on whatever way
you think you need to be
to bring your client, your best clients,
your most profitable clients to you.
You are getting buried in the noise
of the 3.48 billion people out there.
And that’s just silly, right?
So I want you to do two things.
One, I want you to write
in the comments below
what are you waiting for and why?
