  1. Procrastination is a hard one for me personally. Some people fear success because success may bring more things to procrastinate about. So, procrastination has to get solved!

  2. Fear of failure is a big one. But, failing and getting back up and trying again helps us get over that fear. When we succeed and learn how to succeed, we get less afraid of failure.

  3. I am glad you liked the post! BTW, love your name “CrazyMom” because I feel like one most days!

  4. Procrastination is my hard one. I don’t worry about fear of failure because if I fail, I just get up and go again.

  5. Procrastination is still hard for me. The fear of success is better because I like making my husband and children proud.

  6. Procrastination is definitely my thing. I have gotten better at not procrastinating {procrastinating on procrastinating?} over the years, but I still need to work on it more.

  7. I’m definitely a procrastinator, and honestly, I think I might have a little fear of success because the thought of a greater workload is just too much.

  8. I’d say fear of failure is probably my biggest reason for not taking action.

  9. Great book recommendations.. SOoo need to check them out… I usually don’t like to wait till the last minute either, but lately I need a little motivation… thanks for a great post and a great reminder

  10. Great post! Procrastination would be my main problem, I tend to be a procrastinator.

  11. I am glad you liked the article. The only one I am still working on is procrastination, but, I am getting better.

  12. I think one more reason should LACK OF FUNDS. For me that is why I need to wait to open my pet treats etsy store. I need to wait til Nov. 1st when we will have put away enough money to start taking orders. I love the other four: procrastination fear of failure fear of success
    and lack of experience
