Can’t Overcome Procrastination?
Procrastination is the result of lack of clarity. You are having a disagreement between your head and your heart about what you REALLY want to do. Your body is probably getting into the mix, and giving you a sign, such as a stiff neck, a tension headache, a “gut feeling”, that is a symptom that you are conflicted in what you REALLY want to do. The fact is: You don’t KNOW what you want, and so you don’t proceed. That is the definition of procrastination!
Procrastination is the result of stress, AND it can cause more stress! It becomes a vicious cycle!
You aren’t sure that you WANT to proceed; you lack confidence in your choice, and don’t know what to do. You are afraid to make a decision, and so you are stuck like that deer in the headlights! You afraid to go forward, backward, just transfixed and stressed out where you are. It’s not safe there either!
What’s holding you back from making a decision and getting into action? Fear is preventing you from even making a change. Furthermore, if you make a decision from a place of fear, it’s probably the WRONG decision! If you follow the fear, you’ll be moving in the wrong direction!
F E A R = False Evidence Appearing Real
There are lots of “buts”, excuses, reasons why you “should”, “can’t” and “don’t” change. However, when you are in an stressful situation, your brain isn’t thinking properly. It’s hard to even assess your options. You can’t think clearly. Your mind is wrapped up in the reasons “why you can’t”, while your heart saying: “follow me”. You are out of alignment!
