Letters to YOU: “How to stop procrastinating and start doing?” Part II

Updated on June 13, 2011

Dear YOU,

One of the major reasons you might be procrastinating on a regular basis is because you have not found your true life purpose. We are all constantly searching for a life purpose. What is it exactly that we are looking for? What does it really mean and how do we solve the mystery? How will we know that we found it? You might want to be a good friend, a good parent or a loyal employee. But what is it really that you are here for? It has to be something bigger, something more meaningful and extraordinary. Finding life purpose is the most difficult task you will ever do. But when you find it, you will get a sense of fulfilment.

- Think about what it is that you do now and what you have always wanted to do in your life but never did. Make a list of all the skills that you have. If you are finding it hard to come up with the list yourself, ask your friends and family for help. What do they think you are good at? Where and how could you possibly use these skills? Listen to yourself and become self-aware. Stop looking at other people. This is your life. What do you think is YOUR life purpose? What do you want people to remember you for? What do you want to accomplish?

- Do some research on the subjects that fascinate you. Don’t just sit and wait – initiate action. Think of all the activities that you love doing but never have time for it. Stop making excuses and dedicate time for yourself. You are the most important person in your life. Do activities that you enjoy and spend some quality time on your own.

- Stop chasing financial goals. It is fantastic to have a great income but only if you achieve it by doing something you love. If money is your only motivator then you are probably doing something you don’t like. On the contrary, if your motivator is to enjoy what you do, then you will be more likely to make good money and stay happy.

- Nothing is impossible. It is just another excuse for not doing something. There are hundreds of examples of people who started with an idea and achieved their goal. Review your attitude towards life, towards achieving goals, towards your motivators and you will be on the right track.

- Avoid people who make you feel small. These people are demotivating you and drain all your energy. Spend more time with people who encourage you, support you and believe in you.

- Don’t hide your emotions. Share them with your loved ones. Identify fears that block your road to achieving life goals. These could be:

Unacceptable values

Can't get out of the rut


Lack of skills

Lack of self-confidence

Fear of losing leisure time

Ingrained negative feelings

Fear of something new

Fear of competition

Fear of injury

Fear of failure … etc.

Fight these fears with these stepping stones:

Talk to a friend first

Learn to trust more

Learn to take risks

Do your homework

Know your options

Take a chance

Learn from past mistakes

Weigh each choice carefully

Try something different

Use a budget

Take action …etc.

- Look and you will find it!

Be healthy, happy and wealthy… and Remember: “I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.”

Always by your side,

Tati Irodova
