3 Ways To Stop Putting Things Off

fear of failure, overcoming fear, procrastination, Jim Woods Life Coach

Fear is cloaked in procrastination. Instead of talking responsibility for yourself and our own inactions we assign blame by feeling sorry. Choice. The difference in being a follower or a leader. Please share.

Will you wither or will you thrive?

“When faced with two equally tough choices, most people choose the third choice: to not choose.” ― Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invisible

In creating a better, more meaningful life, I find the following tips helpful:

Believe you can take action.                    

That may sound easy, but it’s not. Believe in yourself, and things start changing before your eyes.

Many times, indecision is the fault of insecurity. As Michael de Montaigne once said, “A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.”

Instead of giving in to fear, I believe I will be successful by:

  • Talking with peers I respect to go over my plan and their thoughts on the project
  • Plotting out possible paths and steps to carry out my ideas
  • Visualizing what steps I will take to achieve my quest

Be confident. Feeling confident affects my power to make decisions more than anything else. When I feed my belief in myself, things change for the better.

Avoid stress by all means. Having tasks to finish is like walking around pulling a parachute. Why would you do that to yourself?
