Is Your Procrastinating Stifling Your Success

Is Your Procrastinating Stifling Your Success?

“I'll do it tomorrow” turns into “I'll start it next week.”

This is something I think everyone has dealt with at some point in their life.

So the question I ask you is: why do we do it?

It definitely isn't a productive piece in our lives. I personally have procrastinated in my own life and realized it eventually leads to a downward spiral if not dealt with. Eventually it becomes a part of your mental DNA and you go through life aimlessly.

So why do we procrastinate?

The biggest reason, in my personal opinion, is fear. Fear of failure or not being good enough. When you procrastinate you ultimately sell yourself short.

I can remember starting my first product to sell online. I kept on telling myself it was going to be a waste of time because there was no guarantee that it would sell. I procrastinated to even start the product for months. Finally, I sucked it up and completed my product, The Rebel Mouse Method, in two days. The outcome was 132 sales at nine bucks a pop. If I would have kept procrastinating it would have been a big fat goose egg.

If you want to stop the dreaded force we call procrastination then check out this article from Life Hack, 11 Practical Ways To Stop Procrastination. This opened my eyes to a few great tips to help me out.

 

Les Brown hits the nail on the head when it comes to procrastination…

“The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry out their dream.”

― Les Brown

In closing, focus more on your ambitions and less on procrastinating. I say this because you're worth it.

    Hi Fred!

    Procrastination is my middle name! For me it is sometimes that I am lazy. Often times, it is the fear of making the wrong decision. The trouble with that is if you wait long enough the decision is made for you! Mostly, my problem is having so many things to do that I don’t know which one to do first!

    Thank you for writing this article. I will bookmark and read it when I am procrastinating!

    Hey Fred. Thanks for the share, was a good article! I think we also spend a bit of time to discover what we value the most in our lives and then align our goals with that it helps takes procrastination away.

    For example. I bet anyone can think of one topic that they would have no troubles spending hours and hours in.
