Practice Your Mind To Stop Procrastination By The Law of Attraction

Aug 29, 2007
Procrastination is one of the problem areas in life that most people want to improve. It does not only prevent to achieving what you want, but it also give you the bad habit which can sabotage any of your mission. In order to be effective in life, we need to learn how to deal with procrastination. In this article, we will talk about psychological moves to deter procrastination by partly using the law of attraction.

Brian Tracy, a leader in personal development field, says in his work "Time Management". Brian classifies psychological ways to prepare your mind to the task. These psychological approaches will reduce or even eliminate procrastination. There are seven psychological moves including:

1. Set worthwhile goals
When you have goals that is meaningful to you, your commitment to the achievement will be significantly higher. Having a written goal with the deadline shown in front of your working desk is one of the classic way to move you toward your goals and eliminate procrastination. This will work very well especially when your goal is very worthwhile and reward for achieving it is so big for you.

2. Continually visualize the task as completed
Visualize that you have completed the task on time without any problem. Visualization is how we communicate with our subconscious mind and make the mind attract what we want into our life. According to the law of attraction, the subconscious mind has the power to work like a magnet to attract circumstances or attributes that are favorable to your goal achievement. You will find that your path to your goals is smoother and faster. You may want to add some background audio into your visualization process. This will help accelerating your attraction.

3. Make positive affirmation.
Do it now. Write this sentence down and place in front of you. Some companies have their employees shout out loud this slogan every morning to make them focus on action and the importance of present moment. It works very well. For personal approach, it will work for every body who make this affirmation regularly. "Do it now! Do it now!". You can affirm this into your mind with intensity. Once it registers into your mind, your chance of procrastination will drastically reduce.

4. Set a deadline on all important tasks.
One major mistakes that most people have is that they do not really know when to finish the project. This is a pitfall that hinder our accomplishment. We need to set us the deadline so that we can make plan to work on against the deadline. When we know what to do in the specific time, we will have the tendency to work on it instead of procrastinating because we know that the project will not finish on time if we do not do as we plan.

5. Refuse to rationalize or give excuses to not doing it.
It is interesting that a lot of people have multiple ways to give themselves the reason to not doing what they need to do now. They easily postpone the activity by giving many sound reasons. You will need to know how to refuse to accept those rationalizations. We have to learn that all those reasons happens just to make you delay in the project and this is not good for us. Once you refuse to accept the reasons or excuses, you will be able to move forward.

6. Create a reward system. Condition yourself to expectation of the good result.
Give yourself a pad on the back or go out for a walk if you finish one task. Buy yourself a gift or do something meaningful every time you finish one step of your task. The good reward system gives you the sense of self-respect and it will drive you toward your goals.

7. Accept responsibility on completing the tasks on time.
A lot of people procrastinate because they know that when things go wrong or when the tasks can be not finished, they can blame on others or circumstances. This is what most people do. But when we accept one hundred per cent of responsibility into your life, you will not procrastinate anymore since you know that they will be no one to blame accept yourself.

Everyone knows that procrastination is one of the major problem areas that people have. This article talks about seven psychological moves to eliminate procrastination by partly using the law of attraction.
