PROCRASTINATION! The Motivation & Focus KILLER!!
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE DISTRACTION TECHNIQUE?
We all have a favorite go-to distraction, mine is overthinking and swelling after listening to other people's opinions and deciding that they know best! I have spent weeks dwelling on the opinions of others and doubting my own abilities. This is also known as FEAR! Fear of disappointing, Fear of Failure, Fear of looking stupid, Fear of proving other peoples egos correct...
Don't Let Anyone Burst Your Bubble!!!
When these fears arise I will use avoidance techniques, such as doing none essential tasks more! OR AT LEAST I USED TO DWELL FOR WEEKS!!
Now, I listen to myself and turn to joy! Fear cannot survive in a world of love and Joy! Other people's opinions are precisely that... OTHER PEOPLES OPINIONS!
Procrastination happens when we are scared or anxious to do a particular task, however, Nothing amazing happens in our comfort zones! No one promised it was going to be easy...
Patience, Persistence, and Perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success - Napoleon Hill.
When you feel overwhelmed or anxious, it is your bodies way of letting you know that it is time to refocus, it is time to take a step back and look at what is important to your happiness and your life's purpose!

HOW TO DEVELOP PERSISTENCE:
A Definite Purpose backed by a burning desire for its fulfillment!
A Definite Plan expressed in continuous ACTION
A Mind Closed Tightly against all negative and discouraging influences.
A Friendly Alliance with one or more persons who will encourage me to follow through with both plan and purpose.
Your desire mixed with HUGE Action, and a choice to refuse to listen to or believe in negative thoughts whilst surrounding yourself with people that will raise you higher is THE positive strategy for success!
REMEMBER!! You are in control of your choices. You can choose to procrastinate or you can choose to take Positive Action towards your goals. What is the better choice?
