" Tips to stop procrastination from controlling your life"

We live in a world of movers and shakers,  unless you're a procrastinator.  If you are a procrastinator you're afraid to  move.  I use to be some what of a procrastinator,   but soon realized you don't get anyhting done. Procrastination is a form of fear, we don['t act on anything because we 're afraid too.  Procrastination is an act of not being able to move forward. People that procrastinate have a mundane life style because of their obessission with procrastination.  I learn that the people that procrastinate have two fears, the fear of failing and the fear of succeeding.  If they stop procrastinating and try to fulfill their goals in life, they will become better in all things that they do.  They don't realize that the thought of failing is  not a help but a hindrance to their progress in life.  Fear hampers quite a few people, but if they have the tenacity and strength to push forward; regardless of their fear, they will accomplish many of their unanswered goals in life.  If we only realized that we have to put aside our fears; and just go what ever it is that we can in life, we wouldn't have time to procrastinate or think about our fears.  We also suffering from the fear of succeeding in life, which shouldn't be a fear at all but a steping stone.  We fear succeeding, because of the fact that we would have to move to the next level or next step and we fear not being ready for he next step. The true fact is, Procrastination stop some people from ever trying and that's not good because they want be able realize  their success, live  it and enjoy it.

But, here are a few tips that might help you handle your procrastination:

1. If you got chores, job,or project to do, force yourself to grit your teeth, get up  and getting going.

2.Show procrastination whose boss by grabbing it by the horns, and  taking charge of the oppurtunity.

3.Talk to yourself in the mirror about what you're capable of doing, to help yourself build up your confidence.

4.Always remember this Verse,"I can do all things through Christ which strenghtens me; and get up and do it.

We can do what ever we set our mind to do, once we kick procrastination  to the side.  we all know that if we don't try ; we will never succeed in life.

      I think procrastination can also be tied to low self esteem. If we don't believe in ourselves and have self-confidence, then it's hard to be motivated. You offer some great tips to help with procrastination. Thank you for the hub.
