Why Procrastination is Actually About Fear, Not Laziness

  • Post category:Success

If you find you’re often asking yourself why procrastination is taking over your life, you might feel like you the problem you need to address has something to do with laziness, or poor motivation. 

But procrastination is actually the result of negative beliefs and feelings, for instance:

– Fear of disappointment 
– Fear of failure
– Fear of taking responsibility for one’s own life
– The need to remain dependent of one’s friends, parents, and loved ones
– The fear of facing the world and becoming an independent adult
– A lack of self confidence
– The belief one cannot take care of one’s self
– The fear of being alone
– The fear of success
– The need to get revenge on one’s parents for past abuse/neglect/humiliation

These negative feelings and beliefs come from old memories of neglect, failure, failed nurturing, disappointment, abuse, humiliation, bullying and more, that remain active in your subconscious mind?

This is what is actually taking over your mind, and why procrastination has such a hold on your life.

Did you know that it is now possible to completely and permanently delete negative memories by permanently eliminating the negative thoughts, feelings and the procrastinating state altogether? Would you like to learn how?

To fully understand what is going on here, let’s take an example of how one can begin to release these emotional roots of procrastination. Let’s say a person has experienced abuse during their childhood. 

Such negative memories stay inside that person permanently and generate feelings of anger, low self-esteem, worthlessness, inadequacy, low motivation, low energy and enthusiasm for life, sadness, victim hood, a fear of being punished or forsaken, and so on.

As I’m sure you can see, these serve only to undermine one’s desire/ability to move forward in life, unleash their full creative potential and create a happy, abundant, deserving and fulfilling life. 

The inertia created by this negativity is often insoluble as it literally paralyses the individual and subsequently even drives them to beat up on themselves for it. This is why procrastination can lead to a vicious negative downward spiral.

Why Procrastination ‘Serves’ Your Subsconscious Beliefs

In order to begin to release yourself from the negative spiral of procrastination, we need to look at how you “believe” your negative memories of abuse actually “serve” you. 

So how do such negative memories supposedly “serve” such people, and is this really why procrastination is so hard to break?

Well, one might hold the subconscious belief that those memories serve as evidence for their unworthiness. So if they believe themselves to be unworthy the idea of striving for a happier life simply would not make sense because if they did and managed to achieve any measure of success there would be a fear that it would all be taken away and hence their efforts would have been in vain.

So does the feeling of your success being taken away sound, or rather feel, familiar to you? If so, then you may also have these emotional blocks living within you. 

If an individual believes that their success might be taken away from them, of course this is why procrastination would take over their lives – it’s easier to simply avoid making any efforts to improve their lives.

In other words, they would effectively have found a strategy to protect themselves from ever again experiencing failure of any kind. Such a person should therefore feel safe, secure, at peace, calm, relaxed, immune, resilient, confident, able to take on anything they choose, feel good about themselves and hence able to create a full, happy and fulfilling life!

Now, take a moment and pause to notice how you are feeling inside. Many individuals, if they have followed the example above, start to feel some of the following: feelings of release, relief, lightness, feeling unburdened, calm, energised, empowered, resilient, strong, motivated, and confident – to name a few. 

If you are feeling any of these, kindly place one (either) hand over your heart, and as if you are speaking to yourself, simply affirm to yourself that you like (if you do) these feelings and notice how they start to get stronger.

Although you may not completely realise it, you are beginning to come back into your mind/body and resume control of it, yourself and your life. If that resonates with you, in the same way as above, affirm that too.
