So, last week I shot a FB live video, you can see it here (scroll down to October 16) , where I talked about procrastination and how you can defeat it once and for all.
I wanted to expand a little on what I talked about in the video.
Procrastination is a behaviour not an identity, so the first thing you must do is change the language you use to describe your actions.
- I’m a procrastinator
- I procrastinate on these things
- I’m always putting this off so I’m a procrastinator.
Reinforcing this langage only programs your unconscious mind to validate the belief, and then you get more of the same.
On thing that people who do procrastination really well often say is that they just want this thing (insert whatever goal you are working on) to be perfect, or they just don’t feel like doing it.
Perfectionism is an idealistic goal that is never reached. In fact it’s impossible to be perfect. No one has ever achieved this pie-in-the-skie goal, and no one ever will.
And yes. That also includes YOU.
So stop using perfectionism as an excuse to not do what needs to be done.
The second part here is about not feeling like doing the goal.
Here’s my classic response to that.
Me – Is this a goal you truly you want?
Client – Yes
Me – Ok, so WHO CARES wether you feel like it or not?
You see, sometimes you are just going to have to do things you don’t like to do to get to your goal.
That’s just the way it works. It’s life. It’s the path to your greatness and your destiny.
Stop using your feelings as an excuse to rationalise not going for your goal and achieving your dream and START figuring out why you’re putting it off.
And here’s why most people do.
1 – Not important enough (I spoke about this on the video. Watch it here again – scroll down to 16th October)
2 – Doubt.
Doubt is simply believing in an outcome that you don’t want, and doubt is a decision.
The amazing thing about doubt is that it can be removed from your neurology very quickly – usually within 20 minutes, sometimes as quick as 7 1/2 minutes.
Can you imagine what life would be like if you were able to remove doubt from your goals.
You would take the action necessary.
You would be consistent.
You would achieve what is important to you.
And you would KNOW that you can do it.
