If you are struggling to beat procrastination, are avoiding what you have set out to do or you cannot seem to ground even the smallest dream that you have, you are not alone!
You know how difficult it can be to beat procrastination, but what can you do about it? First, you need to understand where this behaviour is coming from.
There is an underlying cause to your procrastination – old emotional programming that’s hidden deep in your subconscious mind. This programming reveals itself in the form of negative, limiting beliefs and fears.
If we don’t work to overcome our negative programming, it becomes an emotional straitjacket that robs us of our power, our free will, and our ability to act on our dreams and plans leaving us perplexed as to why we cannot start.
Many people that come to me often find it is easier to say, when people ask them, that my plans are going well – just to them an answer that will leave them feeling less ashamed.
All the while, deep down they know they haven’t started. The feelings of internalised shame this causes can lead one to want to isolate themselves.
I want to tell you now, that this isn’t your fault.
Even so, the program running in your mind will beat you up for it, telling you that you need to get more motivated, more organised, come up with a plan first etc. If it’s in your mind, you already know exactly what I mean.
The negative programming that causes procrastination is actually not an innate part of who we are. It shouldn’t be inside you at all!
It can be frustrating to live life carrying around the burden of fear and negative programming, unable to do the things you want to do and feeling like a bad person for not doing the things you know you should be doing.
The good news is, it doesn’t have to be that way! It is now possible to systematically and permanently delete, erase, and uninstall this toxic programming from within and beat procrastination once and for all.
The Paralysing Beliefs Behind Procrastination
There are many limiting beliefs that cause procrastination, and you might have any or all of them. If you have a tendency to procrastinate, it is likely that one or more of the following statements will ring true to you:
- I don’t have what it takes to succeed.
- I’m inadequate.
- I lack self-confidence.
- I’m afraid of failure.
- I’m afraid of being criticised or judged.
- I’m afraid of being humiliated.
- I’m angry or resentful about having to take responsibility.
- I can punish others by being a victim.
- I need someone else to rescue me or take care of me.
- I’m afraid that my friends and family won’t like it if I’m successful.
- I’m afraid of other people’s envy or jealousy.
- I feel that I don’t deserve success.
- I’m afraid of having to make my own decisions.
- I’m afraid of having to be totally responsible for myself.
- I’m afraid of growing up.
- I wish I could continue being a child.
If any of the above statements resonated with you, you can probably already tell how restrictive these feelings and thoughts are. These are thoughts and feelings that paralyse you mentally, emotionally, and physically.
What would happen if these thoughts controlled you all the time? Your life would collapse!
This programming comes from old emotional baggage that you gathered earlier in your life from all sorts of negative memories. You may have been abused, abandoned, humiliated, or neglected. Or the memories may be more everyday: failure, embarrassment, or bullying at school. Whatever your limiting memories are, they leave emotional scars that stay with you through the years.
These memories work on your subconscious and give you evidence for why you should procrastinate and avoid acting. Your programming tells you that you shouldn’t try because you will fail anyway, because someone will make fun of you for it, or any of countless other possible reasons. You won’t notice this consciously because the programming is working on your subconscious. You are a slave to your programming without even knowing that it is there.
Like a computer, you’ve been given a task that you can’t avoid doing. This task isn’t something you want to do, though; its instructions are to remain helpless, stuck, and submissive. Your subconscious tells you to stay weak, dependent, and failure-ridden. These tasks make you unhappy; your programming hurts you, and you’re left feeling unable to accomplish your goals and beat procrastination.
