Many things have to do with our state of mind. Isn’t it true, then, that when it comes to procrastination, it’s mind over matter? We choose to put things off. We choose to get things done. Motivation exists or it doesn’t. The right words can certainly be inspiring and motivating. The right words, combined with a change in thought patterns could be the key to stop procrastinating.
Maybe a self pep talk doesn’t feel like it’s enough to get you to stop procrastinating. But you can retrain your brain to help you stop procrastination. Neuro linguistic programming, or NLP, can help you look at tasks differently so that it won’t take so much thought or effort to get yourself going.
What is Procrastination Costing You?
Procrastination can prevent you from being productive and being happy. Some people procrastinate cleaning the house, exercising, doing a less than desirable task, or any number of other things. Self hypnosis can help in many ways. It can help you remove nagging doubts that tell you that you shouldn’t get up and do something. It can help you feel motivated toward action.
Thought patterns can help you or can hinder you. Some people will read up on stopping procrastination several times before even considering taking action. But the longer it goes on, the more it robs you of wellness. How often do you beat yourself up emotionally for your putting things off? It’s most likely true that you also have some self loathing regarding your action and things that it has cost you in the past. Can you name things that might be better in your life if only you’d stop procrastinating? Consider recordings that can help you whilst you relax or sleep, such as the Stop Procrastinating download on CD or MP3 download.
