Take Action Now and Get Rid of Shame

It is magnificent to take action now and stop being ashamed. People are often embarrassed by the fact that they make plans but never accomplish the things on their to do lists. It is particularly embarrassing to make one’s plans public and not follow through with them. To save yourself from this embarrassment, take action now.

Take Action Now is a powerful idea. It means whatever your plan is, whatever it is you are supposed to be doing, start doing it, now. Once you have gone through the trouble of formulating a plan, figuring out what you need to do, the next logical step is to get to the doing. Interestingly, the taking action now is the part that freaks out most people. When it is time to actually start working the plan and doing what needs to be done, people get scared and don’t take action but make excuses to justify procrastination.



Often people who have a problem with stopping procrastination have broken their word to keep deadlines to friends, family and co-workers on more than one occasion.

  1. I have that same problem. I was supposed to make a trip last year that never happened. I hope we both get our trips in this year.

  2. I am glad to hear taking action worked for you. It is funny, the more we avoid problems the bigger they get in reality adn in our minds. Taking action gives us control, power and often peace.

  3. This post is talking to me. I have a financial situation that I’m dealing with now that I was so ashamed to tell anyone about. Once I opened up…I was able to get help I need to TAKE ACTION and resolve the problem.

  4. I like what you say is the key, being accountable and then starting again. We cannot change the past, it is done. But we all have the power to make changes so tomorrow will be different.

  5. Thanks Janeane. This is definitely something I am working on. It’s interesting when you get rid of the shame and share your challenges, that some folks look at you like you have two heads. 🙂

    But the key is being accountable and picking back up and starting again. Most appreciative.
