When something as intimidating as erasing your criminal record is on your to do list, the immediate response can be to procrastinate. Data shows we do this as an unknowingly way of self-sabotage. When things feel uncomfortable or uncertain, our coping mechanisms kick in. The doubt and not knowing can be paralyzing.
Working towards removing your criminal record leaves many procrastinating, oftentimes for years. When folks put off something as important as removing their criminal record, it comes back to haunt them 90% of the time. All that time spent thinking about it is wasted if you don’t act on it.
How do I know if I qualify? What if it costs more than I can afford it right now? It’s embarrassing to dredge up the details again. I haven’t looked into it, maybe it’s just gone away on its own.
These are some of the questions and comments I hear all the time. Not knowing what to do or where to get started is the worst part. But, it’s also the easiest part to get over once you have the right help.
After 20 years in the Pardon industry I’ve heard countless stories. Remember, there are thousands of people in your shoes (10% of Canadians have a criminal record in fact). You set good intentions the last time your criminal record came to mind, but then lie to yourself about it not being the right time. Trust me when I say that it’s better to get started now. Who knows what life has in store for you?
Maybe your spouse asks about taking a holiday. You hear of a promotion opportunity coming up at work in the near future. Your kid’s soccer coach is seeking an assistant and would love for you to be involved. And then it hits you. This is going to require a Criminal Record Check, one which you cannot pass because you still haven’t taken the steps to remove it.
So, here’s the thing. Statistics show that 85% of people are more successful when they ask for help with something they are not familiar with. We all also do better and are more productive when we are held accountable.
