2 Simple Ways To Cure Procrastination


Curing procrastination is not necessarily about will power or forcefully advancing in your goals but rather it is about learning why we procrastinate, what we are afraid of and finding ways to face those fears in order to move forward in our lives.

What are you afraid of?

1. Fear of Failure.

The fear of failure is by far the most obvious fear which can cause disabling procrastination. This is especially true as it pertains to our professional lives, careers, and for college students their assignments.

If the fear of failure is causing you to put off a task then what you need to do is sit down and think carefully about all of the possible outcomes if indeed you fail.

Actually, first consider what does it mean to fail? If you can not answer this question then you have nothing to fear and your task of curing procrastination is finished.

If you can certainly imagine failing in the given task then consider for a minute what is the worst possible consequence of failing.

Make peace with this, accept it and you have nothing more to fear. The Samurai of early Japan taught themselves to make peace with the fact that they could die at any time.

By doing this they eliminated almost all other fears -- because, of course, what could be worse than that. They certainly learned the trick to curing procrastination.

2. Fear of Success.

If you think that maybe your procrastination is being caused by your fear of success then curing procrastination becomes all that much easier.

Why are you afraid of success?

Or maybe, you are aware that success will bring negative consequences in addition to positive things. If you are to succeed in curing procrastination then you must come to terms with what to expect with success and weigh the good versus the bad.
