If you’re putting off important tasks, then this video will reveal to you the number one reason why you do it and how to stop procrastinating right now.
You see your productivity levels as well as your procrastination habits are intrinsically linked to your self image & who you believe yourself to be.
As far apart as these concepts might appear from each other, remember that thoughts and beliefs are self-fulfilling prophesies.
So, to discover how to stop procrastinating, hit play now to watch a video I filmed for Entrepreneur Magazine in the U.S, who is followed by over 2.5 million entrepreneurs world wide. Enjoy!
Your identity and who you perceive yourself to be, at this point in time, allows you to achieve a certain level of success and reach certain goals.
However, if you are struggling in your business, not getting through work, not making the sales, finding it hard to concentrate, procrastinating, not achieving the results you want – I can guarantee that who you are and who you need to be are two different identities.
“Because you can never out-perform your own self image. That in which you believe yourself to be right now.”
Your current identity won’t allow you to reach your future goals because it does not believe it can.
Say for example you’ve transitioned from being employed to running your own business or becoming an entrepreneur.
The self-image you hold as an employee is vastly opposed to one of an entrepreneur. An employee knocks off at a specific time, an entrepreneur will do whatever it takes.
And employee gets a cheque every week.
An entrepreneur may not get a cheque for months & sometimes won’t get a big pay off for years.
So, to help I want you to think about who are you right now.
Identify what your thoughts and feelings are towards the tasks that you’re procrastinating on.
Who do you have to believe yourself to be to procrastinate & what kind of behaviours would you have to demonstrate to back up that self-image.
Do you have to believe that you’re someone who gets overwhelmed, can find distracting tasks to do but the one you need to.
“Once you’ve identified who you believe yourself to be, it’s then time to identify who you need to become to obtain your goal.”
I want you to really think about this right now.
Your current identity & self-image is dictating your current reality.
You won’t be able to achieve that next step, without altering your identity and evolving to the next stage.
So, I’m going to ask you a question:
Who do you need to become tomorrow in order to reach the goals that you want right now?
Write it all down right now and you’ll suddenly uncover why you’re failing to hit your goals, but more importantly your path to success in business in a new and enlightening way.
How do you stop procrastinating?
You transform how you see yourself and your behaviour will begin to shift dramatically.
And, finally, leave a comment below. Tell us who you’re becoming in your business.
Until next time.
