“Success is not obtained overnight. It comes in installments; you get a little bit today, a little bit tomorrow until the whole package is given out. The day you procrastinate, you lose that day’s success.” ― Israelmore Ayivor
Procrastination is a common behavior that we often use to sabotage ourselves.
We all hate it, and it gets us into trouble. But in spite of getting us into trouble, we keep doing it again and again.
The project never gets completed, the website remains half undone, the office/home never gets decluttered—we never move forward.
It’s a very frustrating problem because the procrastination behavior goes against what you consciously want and tell others what you desire : the better job, the updated website, more customers/clients, the new relationship.
In my years of practice, everyone has a good reason to procrastinate.
Some procrastination is just anxiety based on past unrelated events (i.e., memories), but an other form of procrastination is when your brain tells you that you need more information before making a wise decision.
When we procrastinate, we are consciously or unconsciously experiencing confusion, uncertainty, self- doubt, or fear.
Procrastinators may often have low esteem and tend to exaggerate their accomplishments as a way of covering up anxiety and self-doubt.
There’s a powerful connection between perfectionism and procrastination.
For the perfectionist, it’s never good enough, which means that a perfectionist has low self-esteem. Have you been procrastinating because you don’t trust yourself or want the end result to be perfect…?
If so, just ask yourself this question: “Am I good enough to make a decision?”
The answer is usually YES!
