Laziness can cause procrastination but few will admit this. Not having a big enough “why” is a major component and a success killer for sure! Simply feeling too much pain associated with the task is yet another way we are hindering our success.
There’s nothing like a little pressure to get a person moving. Becoming involved in a mastermind or support group is ideal for accountability. When you get other people involved to keep you accountable, it will add some pressure to get you moving!
Here are a few habits you need to kick to create more success that will help you in overcoming procrastination.
- Self doubt
- Loss of focus
We can begin to procrastinate when we don’t have a strong belief that we can do something. Having self-doubt is a sure-fire way of creating procrastination right?
Analyzing WHY you don’t want to do something is helpful if you are of a strong enough mind to face the truth. Ask yourself a few questions.
- Is it because you don’t have the skill?
- Is it because you need more education?
- Is it because you are not prepared?
Be serious about the success you want to achieve. Make it one of your priorities. Are you simply focusing on something else that you deem more important? I was talking with someone in my exclusive Abundance Seekers Facebook group, who was telling me that she felt like there wasn’t enough time in the day. This is her limiting belief. She’s simply NOT doing things because she is giving certain task a higher priority.
The truth is, she isn’t organized and doesn’t have a strong enough reason to do certain tasks. In this case, it was making time for fun. That’s right, she is putting self-love LAST on her list of “to-do’s”.
There’s nothing that can get in the way of you being a success story! All you need to do is adopt an attitude for success. Start with throwing away any negative habits that hinder your journey to success.
Begin to evaluate what’s getting in your way, what your WHY is and if there is a pain associated with the task. Find a reason to PULL you in the direction that you want to go in. If you truly want to learn how to overcome procrastination, you need to associate a positive outcome to it.
