We all procrastinate from time to time. Sometimes the things we put off doing are small and sometimes they are pretty important.
There are days when we try to avoid doing what we should actually do like household chores or going for a run. And there’s probably nothing wrong with it if it happens sporadically. From time to time everyone needs to take a break from a daily routine.
The problem is when we start to avoid doing something that needs to get done, something that may have an impact either on our lives or the lives of some other people, and we do it way too often.
There’s a difference between taking a mental break from all our daily tasks and not doing the tasks that need to get done.
If by any chance you fall into the trap of procrastination it doesn’t mean you have to stay there. In fact you shouldn’t. If you want to overcome your procrastination remember about these things:
Don’t try to be perfect and don’t wait for the right time! Perfectionism is a killer of progress and the right time may never come.
If you ever feel like procrastinating again try out affirmations if you’ve never tried them before. Saying positive affirmations that really mean something to you may be very powerful!
You should say these affirmations that you believe in and that evoke the right feelings within you when you say them!
That’s why it’s always best to create your own affirmations because you are the person who knows best what’s going on in your life and you can create the most meaningful affirmations for yourself.
Of course you can use some of the affirmations for overcoming procrastination that you will find below, but if none of them resonates with you, then create your own and repeat them in the morning and during the day whenever you think it may be helpful to you.
