How Self-Made Millionaires Overcome Procrastination
By Peter Murphy
Do you want to know how the super successful overcome procrastination?
One fascinating hallmark of all highly motivated millionaires is their strongly held conviction that they will succeed. Whatever it takes and despite any challenges that crop up. How do they overcome procrastination?
People who are inspired by their dreams believe with certainty they will achieve their goals even if they do not know how all the details will work out. This sense of certainty is due in part to their empowering belief system and also to the way they represent their goals to themselves inside their minds.
Have you ever got excited about your goals and then slowly over time lost your enthusiasm? Most people do.
The difference is that the winners in life are able to relight that passion and desire to keep on going until they get what they want.
What are these rich and successful people doing differently to everyone else? They know how to build an internal state of certainty that they will succeed despite any short-term challenges. This overcome procrastination.
You can have this same sense of certainty by visualizing your top five goals as already achieved at least once a day. Picture your goals as already achieved and enjoy the feelings of satisfaction.
Hear people complimenting you on your success and really soak up the feelings of success. Make the pictures, sounds and feelings as lifelike as possible. Keep going until you feel with certainty that you will achieve this goal " as sure as the sun will rise in the morning!
When you do this you will overcome procrastination.
If the success of the goal seems uncertain play with the picture in your mind until it does feel certain. Compare how you picture, hear and see your goal with your expectation that the sun will rise tomorrow. Making the picture bigger, closer, brighter and more colorful usually helps to make it seem more realistic.
When you do this each day you are telling your unconscious mind to keep searching for ways to achieve your goal and you will consistently be motivated. You will also find that your intuition guides you and presents you with ideas that will help you to move ahead.
It used to bother me picturing my goals as already achieved to the point of certainty...
Overcome procrastination each day by doing this.
I feared that it would make me lazy since my brain would believe the goal would just turn up. And I used to think if I thought of the goal as certain I would be fooling myself into believing I would achieve it despite immediate evidence to the contrary.
However the opposite is true.
That sense of certainty propels you forward to create what you are imagining. Plus when you are off target it stands out a mile because your results are so inconsistent with your expectations. You are then compelled to get back on track.
Like an artist expressing himself with paints you can become an artist creating your goals in the world around you from the inspiration inside your mind.
You will never have a 100% guarantee that you will succeed however the more certain you feel about your future the more energy you will invest in achieving your goals. And the corresponding actions you take will naturally improve your chances of success.
A number of years ago I saw Donald Trump, the New York property developer, getting interviewed on TV. I paid close attention to the way he communicated as well as to what he said. He positively exuded certainty when he spoke about his next big development. Every fiber of his being proclaimed that the new venture would be a huge success.
Trump exudes certainty and this success aura attracts investors and encourages other people to believe in his vision. You can be sure that when he pictures his goals he does so with certainty. Start small if you like and as your confidence grows build up to bigger goals.
Remember to make this a daily habit and you will be able to keep on going even at times when you face setbacks.
You will finally overcome procrastination.
