Procrastination | Reasons for Procrastination

There are two main reasons for procrastination, the fear of success and the fear of failure. Today I go a bit more in depth of these two fears and ways to overcome them.

Reasons for Procrastination

Over the last few posts I have been talking about procrastination.  In the first post I was fairly general about some of the reasons for Procrastination,  in the second post I shared some quotes about procrastination and how they apply to me and in this post I am going to discuss the two major fears that can lead to procrastination.

My husband has been doing some training as well for his business as well and his mentor said that the two main reasons for procrastination are the “fear of Success” and the “Fear of Failure” and so he suggested I go into more detail on these fears.

Why is it that so many lottery winners are back to where they started a year after they won the lottery? Why do Pop Stars that become famous overnight have so much problem dealing with it? Particularly if it is a result of a reality show.  A lot of the reason is that these people do not know how to handle success.  A lot of people do not how they would handle success if it came to them suddenly by doing something so they procrastinate.

You have to know how to deal with success, and the way you learn, is by reading and listening to audios.  Training your mind that success is natural, that you will succeed and you will be able to handle it.  Your mind has to be prepared to accept success otherwise it will self-sabotage all your efforts.

The way I am preparing my mind is reading powerful books like Napoleon Hill, listening to audios like our inner circle audios and I am also listening to subliminal recordings and hypnosis but that is not for everyone.

Other ways we can prepare ourselves are by meditation and associating with other successful people. Masterminding with other successful people enables you to associate success with you and your friends and just be accepted.

The other major Fear you have to overcome often to stop procrastination is the “Fear of Failure.” With this fear you are afraid that you will fail so do not even want to start the task before you.  You might have been told all your informative years that you will never come to anything, that you might as well not try as you will fail.

One of the the first things you have to teach yourself is that all successful people have failed before they achieved.  One of the most important things to remember is that Edison failed 10000 times before he succeeded in creating a working light-bulb.  Donald Trump has failed many times but what makes him great is that he always gets up and starts again and is now one of the richest men in the world.   What you need to do is look at failure as just a step along the way to success.  Each failure gets you further along the path to success as you learn how to deal with that issue and progress further on the path to success.

The more important thing is if you fail do you just try again after analysing the reason for failure? If you do you will be preparing yourself for success and the more you do this the less you will procrastinate.

These are two main reasons for procrastination,  There are multiple reasons but most of them will boil down to these two reasons.

2 Enjoyable Fictional Science Fantasy series of books

I love books always have and always will. There is nothing better than curling up on the couch or bed with a good book when you want to lose yourself from the world. The books I have been reading for years are science Fiction Fantasy and today I want to share a couple of series I have read recently. I find Science fiction is often uplifting even if it is not actually factual, with the struggles the characters go through to get the result required at the end.

  1. The Iron Druid Chronicles

    This series of books is about the oldest living druid in the world. Atticus O’Sullivan is 2000 years old. He discovered an immortality tea which has enabled to live the age of a late thirty year old for the last 2000 years. He has relationships with the various cultural pantheons which is really interesting. Of course it includes Magic, and lots of conflict. One character that really stands out is Oberon his Wolf hound that he is bound to so they have some really hilarious conversations.

  2. The Infernal Devices: Clockwork Angel; Clockwork Prince; Clockwork Princess

    This series of books is the second series of Cassandra Clare’s written for the youth market. It is a nice easy read. It is set in Victorian England, and tells particularly of one young American girl Tessa, coming to London and the new life she faces. It is set in a alternate world with Vampires, mundanes and Demons and the struggles of teenagers in this fantasy world.

Books that have inspired me

Today I am going to keep it simple and talk about some books that I have really enjoyed.

The first is about New Zealand guy called Jason Barrell. The book is called Try, Try Again. Written with the help of Elaine Weber McGough

Hi Everyone

Hope you are having a wonderful day.  If you are not then some of these books might help you.

Today I am going to keep it simple and talk about some books that I have really enjoyed.

The first is about New Zealand guy called Jason Barrell.  The book is called Try, Try Again. Written with the help of Elaine Weber McGough

Jason grew up in Northland, struggled through school with dyslexia, ran a successful business with his wife, became a professional Rugby Player in the Super 12 and then got a broken neck.

When the broken neck ended his rugby career, he went on to become a policeman. Unfortunately tragedy struck again and a series of strokes forced him to undergo a life threatening operation that left him semi-paralysed, brain injured and unable to work. He was only 32.

This book tells of his recovery from this to become one of New Zealand’s most successful motivational speakers.

I was lucky enough to be at a conference to hear him speak.  Hearing his story from the man himself is amazing.  He is so strong.

The next book I want to talk about is:

Excuse me, your life is waiting – The astonishing power of Positive Feelings – Lynn Grabhorn

The back cover says that this book finally clarifies why most of our dreams have never materialised, why we have lived with all too empty bank accounts, tough relationships, failing health, and spiritually unfulfilling lives.

This book is all  about the Physics of thought and it teaches you how to turn your thoughts around.

Reading I learned all sorts of things which I probably do automatically now.  And I pass this book onto others to read if they think they are going no where.

The third book I want to share with you today “The Last Lecture” by Randy Pausch

This became very popular in the mid to late 2000’s.  It is the book written for a lecture series which was called the last lecture and was a chance for famous speakers to imagine what would be said if there was their last lecture.

At the time Randy had only just been told that the prostate cancer he had was terminal so he wrote the most amazing lecture aimed at his children knowing what he thought of them and giving them all kinds of advice.

I love inspirational books.  They make you see that against all adversity you can succeed.

Thinking about what to blog

Well today I have been trying to think about what to blog about.  So I am going to blog about my thought processes today.

Most of today I have been with a frie

Well today I have been trying to think about what to blog about.  So I am going to blog about my thought processes today.

Most of today I have been with a friend who was getting a tattoo of a cat that disappeared a few years ago.  She said at the end of it that she felt so much better, that so much weight had been lifted off her and it was a sense of conclusion.  This has been one of the many changes she has been through over the last year or two.  It has been wonderful to watch her develop over the last couple of years.  She has gone through these changes with my husband and my help and it has been wonderful to see her flower into a really confident lady.

I expect over the next period of time I will be seeing a lot of people do this as they get the successes they have dreamed about with the help of a wonderful group of people in the Empower Network.

I have started doing some serious work myself today, reading heaps of people’s blogs appreciating how wonderful thi group of people is and how much people have learned by being in this wonderful organisation.

I have also updated another webpage of mine that has been dormant for the last few years and done another blog there. There is still a lot of work to do on it and I will have to get a new domain there as well to stand out but in the meantime check it out at http://millions.freeservers.com/blog If anything I have there is useful to you please let me know.

My husband and I also picked up a couple more books today to help with our businesses adding to our growing library of busines books, inspirational books and DVDs.

My thoughts wandered in all kinds of directions today as to what I could write about.  I thought about books, things I have been reading on twitter feeds, facebook feeds, and just seeing around me.

Hope you like my rambles
