Apr 9, 2008
Procrastination is opportunity's assassin." - Victor Kiam, American businessman, Remington Electric Razors (1926-2001)

"Oh, how I wish I could overcome procrastination! Somebody please help me stop procrastinating! But not today, I'm busy."

Law of Attraction - Like Attracts Like

We can be our own worst enemy at times, and you will definitely find this is true when it comes to the Law of Attraction. You are going to have to be honest with yourself and determine why you procrastinate. You need to then focus on changing those patterns of behavior and moving on from them. So what are you going to do when there is a problem on the road to your goals. Are you going to sit there and let things happen to you or are you going to find a positive solution so you can get past the hurdle?

Here is a good example to help you understand how procrastinating can affect your given situation. You may have a nice affair to go to in the evening so you have all of your items laid out and ready to go. You may get dressed though and realize there is stain on your dress. You will have enough time to either remove it or to change into something else. As a result the situation won't be ruining your night out. If you waited until they last minute to get anything ready though that stain can be stressful and cause you to be late.

Many individuals who do procrastinate have a hard time asking themselves why. What it comes down to though is fear. They are allowing that type of negative energy to determine what will take place in their life. They may be afraid of being rejected so they don't present an idea at work or make phone calls that could help their career. They are afraid to get their feet wet in the water as they have a fear that they will surely drown if they do.

It can be hard to move out of the comfort zone that procrastinating has offered you for so long though. You can do it, but you should be taking one small step at a time. Otherwise you risk becoming overwhelmed. This will result in you slipping back into your old habits even if you don't want to.

Do you often feel guilty after you have procrastinated? If so, you aren't alone but the point to focus on is how you are going to successfully change your behaviors. You need to let go of that negative energy and replace it with motivation and inspiration so you can generate positive energy as well.

Here are some great ways for you to start working on changing your habits that are known as procrastination:

1.Write it down Write down your goals and put them up in a place where they will catch our eye frequently.

2. Don't be overwhelmed by the size of the task. Work to identify smaller pieces of the overall puzzle that you can reach for. Each one of these smaller accomplishments are going to motivate you to keep on reaching for more as well. The amount of positive energy that you can generate from this process is unbelievable. That first small goal can be the scariest one to reach for. Once you complete it though you will be excited to grasp the next one.

3.Just get started Fill yourself with positive energy to achieve the first stepping stone and get started straight away with the simplest and smallest of first steps. When you are procrastinating - simply ask yourself what's the first task? Take action on the smallest incremental item on that task. You'll be amazed at how quickly you will be inspired.

4.Reward yourself - when you accomplish each project as well as each milestone.

5.Be human and give up perfectionism - Perfectionism is often a reason for procrastination. The fear of doing an imperfect job keeps us on the starting block. An action performed imperfectly is superior to inaction performed perfectly.
