Earlier this month I was honoured to be invited to speak at the WOW Talks at We Work Moorgate. Where I shared my story from wake-up call to business owner, which I also shared in my previous blog What my wake-up call taught me about procrastination.
There are a number of reasons that as human’s we all procrastinate.
Far too regularly I hear people saying things like,” I just need to do this for one more year so that my CV looks solid” or “Now is just not the right time to change, besides I have responsibilities”, or “I am too old/young/fat/thin/black/white/a man/a woman so I could never do it”.
I call these the procrastination stories they are the lies that you tell yourself (and there are 7 of them, I cover them at the Procrastinators Breakthrough Club). They keep you locked in the mental prison called your comfort zone. Where you resent the things that you know (known knowns) because they don’t fulfil you, but you are too afraid to make changes because you are afraid of the unknown.
How do I know this, because I used to tell myself these stories on a regular basis. In fact I told some stories to myself for more than 10 years…until my wake-up call!
My stories kept me locked in a life that paid the bills, but didn’t make me happy…I chased happiness in parties, people, alcohol, shopping, holidays…but stuff doesn’t make you happy.
“Doing what you are born to do may seem scary, but in all honesty living a life of silent unhappiness (masked with distractions which never totally distract) is actually worse!”
This is why I created the Procrastinators Breakthrough Club. To expose the stories and to talk about the strategies that I have used to tackle my own procrastination head on.
It is my firm belief that unless you are an action taking machine fear will always try to stop you from moving forward every time you encounter something outside of your current comfort zone.
The secret is to become an action taking machine. This is exactly why I created the 8-Week Procrastinators Breakthrough Program to teach you how you can become one.
Next month (1 March 2016) I will be launching my 8-Week Procrastinators Breakthrough Program
This 8-week Program has been designed especially for you, a Frustrated Procrastinator that wants to discover how to escape the constant feelings of overwhelm, guilt, confusion and avoidance.
In 8 weeks, you will discover how you can breakthrough your biggest procrastination blocks, discover how you can create a business and life that you love living. I will show you how you can become who you need to be to run a successful business and life
Together we will go on a journey that will take you from frustrated, overwhelmed, and confused, and leave you feeling excited, powerful and clear about your next steps.
This program is for business owners that are ready to start creating the business and life of their dreams, but don’t know where to begin, and don’t want to do it alone.
It is for business owners who recognise that their current procrastination habits are capping their success, and their chances of growing their business and turnover.
