Procrastination

Procrastination is the habit of postponing those tasks that we need to do, either to the last minute or indefinitely. When we procrastinate we’re reinforcing a behavioural pattern that has the power to be very destructive, negatively impacting both our personal and professional lives.

 

We can procrastinate for a variety of reasons. The task at hand might appear daunting and therefore unpleasant. We can lack confidence in our ability to perform the task successfully. Perhaps the task is a difficult one and on a subconscious level we know that we can never fail at something we never start. Perhaps success at the task at hand will lead to change and greater responsibilities, and because we are creatures of habit we want things to remain as they are.

 

One of the bonuses of hypnotherapy is that it has an aspect of self-discovery. It will help you to discover what you already know at a deeper level. It provides clarity on the reason(s) for your procrastination, helps you to ascertain what it is that you want to achieve, and enables you to set reasonable goals and create a plan upon which to act. Motivation will naturally follow!
