Procrastination, how do you overcome it?

 

I have been thinking about procrastination a lot this week.  I have been suffering from it a bit.

I have been showing up in my business everyday, a little bit each day but not putting in the full time I should have been devoting.

I have been making excuses that life has taken over again , but the real excuse is I have not had my definite major purpose at front of mind.  I have been trying to get my head in the right place by using subliminal tools and of course reading and listening to audios, which has helped me deal with some of the depression and negativity my husband has been going through as well.

 

The dictionary definition of Procrastination is:

noun
1.

the act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off or delaying, especiallysomething requiring immediate attention:

She was smart, but her constant procrastination led her to be late with almost every assignment.

So how do you overcome procrastination?

 

Firstly you work out your Why. (Your Definiteness of Purpose) and get it burned into your mind.  The more you burn it into your mind the less likely you will be to procrastinate. You will prioritise the tasks that will lead to you succeeding in your definiteness of purpose.  Always at the top of mind you will be thinking about your definiteness of purpose, your why.  Because your definiteness of purpose is always at the top of your mind you will do everything you can do achieve your definite of purpose.
There are some situations where procrastination is good.  This is putting off minor and unimportant tasks so you can concentrate on the major tasks that lead to achievement of your definiteness of purpose.  Sometimes this procrastination can save you from putting effort in where you shouldn’t exert it.
There are several reasons for Procrastination and all can be overcome.  The list of reasons I have found is Stress, Overwhelm , Laziness, Lack of Motivation, Lack of Discipline, Poor time Management. Lack of Skills, and perfectionism.
I have just read a blog from Steve Palina.com which has a really good explanation of what to do to overcome these reasons for the procrastination but the one that I like the most is make time to play as well then make time to work.

Self Discipline | Ways to build your self Discipline

Self discipline enables you to think about the consequences then say your words. In other-words think before you act. This also means you control your emotions by regulating the power of each emotion.

Ways to build your Self Discipline

I have been reading a wonderful book called Napoleon Hill’s Keys to Success and one of the chapters I have just read is all about Self Discipline.

The chapter is called Enforce Discipline and is one of the Keys to success.  There are six mini topics under the heading of Enforce your Self Discipline and they are Controlling your emotions, The big four, The power of Self-Discipline, The structure of your mind, The things you cannot discipline, and the power of will.

Controlling your Emotions – Self discipline enables you to think about the consequences then say your words.  In other-words think before you act. This also means you control your emotions by regulating the power of each emotion.

There are 14 emotions split into Positive emotions and Negative emotions.

These emotions are:

Love Fear
Sex Jealousy
Hope Hatred
Faith Revenge
Enthusiasm Greed
 Loyalty Anger
Desire Superstition

Emotions provide your driving power and if you can control them you will achieve amazing results.  They need to be balanced because too much of any emotion can overwhelm the others and take away reasoning for example there are those people that are so in love that they will do anything for their loved ones.  They are putty in the hands of others and rarely amount to anything because they have no purpose in their own life.

You must control and direct your emotions, not deny them.  Denial would be an impossible task because emotions are like a river, their power can be dammed and released under control and direction, but it cannot be held in check forever.

The section on the Big Four is all about using self discipline in four highly important areas.  Appetite, Positive Mental Attitude, Time and Definiteness of Purpose.  A Positive Mental Attitude is the is the only frame of mind in which you can have a definiteness of purpose.

Definiteness of purpose is the most important reason for self discipline.  You you know your definiteness of purpose then you will do everything in your abilities to achieve it.  The power of Self-Discipline allows you to achieve amazing things.  Let’s look at Mahatma Gandhi.

?????????

 

Mahatma Gandhi was one of the most powerful persons in the world, and he didn’t have a house, and had no money but his influence is incredible

This man over long years defeated the British Empire because his definiteness of purpose was to free the people of India.  He went the extra mile to free hundreds of thousands of people. He had applied faith. He completely cleared his mind of any doubt that freedom would be won. And he had amazing self discipline.

Focus your mind on your definiteness of Purpose and self-discipline will be learned along the way to make sure you achieve your definiteness of Purpose.

So going back to the title of this blog
