Who me, procrastinate?


What Procrastination, who me?
No matter what good intentions we may have, a new year’s resolution, a plan to start exercising, to look at our own problems, to learn, to start that course etc. – there’s so many other things, to take our time during the day…
Add to that, children, work, husbands etc., then we wake up two weeks later and think…
‘Hang on a minute, I’d forgotten all about that, and I’d really promised myself to do this…! And I didn’t even start!’
It takes a strong woman, no, really it does, to keep on track of what you want to do!  And know that, that very action is what differentiates us, from those that stay in the same rut, always dreaming never taking action, and reaching what we want to!
But, it’s okay, don’t beat yourself up, cos you are here now, NOW you can do something about it!
But before we do, let’s look at what else is taking over your mind.  You subscribe to a really cool writing course, that sends you a free group, and daily work to do, you want to help back others, friends and email them, your notifications send you an email every comment, every time anybody makes any move at all!
Before you know it you have 20 emails coming in every day that takes half an hour to sort and deal with, it’s like you’ve created your own world of procrastination!  Maybe that competition you entered that you WON! A free course, that still sits in your downloads waiting to be started, waiting for your commitment, waiting to move you forward…
Get off the internet!  NOW, move away from that email list, Facebook, whatever it is…and focus
What are the blocks that stop you from the very action that will take you forward?
Is it all the background noise going on around you?  Maybe you have to cull your emails, focus on each step, one step at a time.  You’re not really giving yourself the best chance otherwise.
Are you scared to move forward?  Ask yourself why?  Won’t your relationship, job, situation be so much better when you do? What is it that scares you?  Why stay, in what you don’t want?
Change, that is the only thing we can depend on, and if you dig you’re heels in, you will stagnate, it’s a moving world, you need to move with it.  Begin to believe in yourself, you are worthy, you are ‘allowed’ your dreams and all that is needed is your focus…one small step by another small step
So, yes it’s okay, okay to slip, to not even start, but as my mentor said once,
‘failure is, not getting back up again’
And I really do believe you can do this, so make the commitment, say a time each day or week to commit to it, you really have got this!  Any further thoughts please do get in touch – I wish you big progress.  And if you are unsure of which way to go, then come and join us here for some inspiration, something for everyone, and check out my new course to really move forward Cinderella to Princess’ and let’s begin NOW… I’ve got your back
