Procastination

hi..now his is a crazy topic but hell no we all in a way or the other fall victims not because we choose to   but something t o do with our nature in general.

The very best way to learn how to break through procrastination is to learn to motivate yourself and in turn build the right habits into your life.

What? I can learn to motivate myself? This can’t be true, my motivation comes and goes and never seems to stick around at the right time! What can i do 

Chill out. Take a deep breather and read on.

That motivation comes and goes is completely normal and human. Even the most successfull people in our society experience this.

That is why we need motivation to get the ball rolling and use this intial spark to build the right habits, patterns and routines into our lives.

Then, and only then is lasting success and change actually possible because motivation is indeed a fleeting thing.

Do you really think athletes such as boxers and bodybuilders are always super stoked to go and train?

Hell, no! Despite doing the sport they love, many atheles often report that they don’t particularly look forward to many of their training sessions.

And who can scold them for it?

Their training can be brutal ans downright intimidating!

Do you really think track and field atheletes look forward to running twenty 200m sprints every day?

Do you really think bodybuilders look forward to hoisting 405lbs on the squat for 12 reps on leg day?

Let me clue you in: No they don’t. And they often actually feel like putting off training!

But they go anyway!

How do they do it!

You see, beating procrastination and drumming up motivation (that is eventually taken over by habit) really comes down to three important strategies.

1. Write down why, when and how you’re going to tackle your tasks

This one is also a very simple, yet highly effective method of getting important tasks done and evetually putting them on habitual autopilot, where going to the gym for example, won’t be such a monumental struggle anymore.

If you’re challenged by not being able to get yourself to do hard tasks, you most likely don’t know why, when and how you are going to do things.

Good that you have pen and paper and have the ability to figure out the answer to these questions in literally 5–10min.

So, why is it important that you finally use your gym memberhsip and get into shape? Why is it important that you start your nutrition plan with the next meal and not next week?

Get really clear on this, and brainstorm at least 10 reasons for why you want to get this area of your life handled once and for all.

As soon as you know why you want to change for the long-term, be sure to get clear on when you are going to start and how.

Again, be as precise as possible.

This is how it could look like (and work really well at getting you activated).

“I want to go to the gym starting tomorrow and want to build it into a habit of going three times a week. My gym days will be on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and I will go at 3.00 pm. I will follow the routine that my personal trainer has given me every time I step unto the gym floor. The most important step though, is making this a habit.”

2. Your goal is to build a habit

Okay, where does all of this lead us?

Well, the end game of all of this, so to speak, is to turn certain, high ROI activites of your life intohabits.

That way you don’t have to come onto Quora every day to rationalize why you are procrastinating on your important tasks (Ask me how I know).

I’ve written about building good habits extensively and encourage you to check out my articles.

You could also pick up the excellent book The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg.

I wish you more that luck!

And let this be the day that you finally break through and do it!

Self confidence

self confidence is very essential  but a challenge to most of us i being among-est them.It has been a journey full of mountains to develop at least some confidence in maurine(me) from the  body am in to my abilities impact and some many aspects of life i have learnt that: words are very powerful and so…

EXPRESS YOURSELF IN POSITIVE WAY TO BOOST YOUR SELF-CONFIDENCE

The selection of words is really important because through words you manifest everything. It is the word which can either set you free or it can enslave you – all depends upon selection and usages of a particular word.

You use words to express your creative power therefore always speak well of yourself and use good words to describe you. Keep in mind the words you use to define yourself can either make or break your self-esteem and self-confidence.

You become what you think about most of the time. And you become what you say about yourself. This is why if keep telling yourself that you “can’t do something”, or that you “don’t have what it takes”, you are sure to turn these thoughts into reality for yourself because that is how you see yourself.

The opposite is true as well if you continuously say and think to yourself things like, “I am capable of creating a life I love”, soon you will start creating a life you want.

So speak well of yourself and you will start believing you do have what it takes to make and live the life you most want.

Take Care of Your Words!

LOVE
