PROCRASTINATING MUCH?

PROCRASTINATING MUCH????

Hmm… smells like fear to me!

I have 4 simple questions you can ask yourself to work out why you’re not taking as much action as you’d like!

1. What are you currently procrastinating on?

2. What bullshit story are you telling yourself about why you aren’t taking action?

A few examples:

– I’m a perfectionist so I take my time?
– I can’t be bothered?
– This is too hard?
– I’ll never be able to do it anyway?
– I don’t have time?
– I’m not ready?

3. Ignore the crap you told yourself on question two and ask yourself: what is the truth behind that story. What is it about taking action that scares you?

A few examples:

– Afraid to fail?
– Afraid to succeed?
– Afraid to be rejected
– Afraid to be humiliated?

Whatever you get at the end of this process is the fear you need to tackle in order to start taking action!

Now the most important question….

4. How could you tackle that fear?!

A few examples:

– Embrace failure as learning?
– Experience success to see if you like it?
– Accept that rejection is okay – because we aren’t all aligned in the same way?
– Deliberately humiliate yourself so you’ve made a choice to put yourself in that situation?

It might seem scary, but if achieving the thing you want to take action on, is more important than a bit of discomfort…

Then feel the fear and do it anyway

See underneath those bullshit stories, dig deeper, create awareness, and give yourself choice.

Choose to tackle the problem, not procrastinate and avoid it.

Taking action feels great.

You deserve that feeling.

So one last question…

Will you tackle fear today, or are you going to continue to ‘procrastinate’?
