Things do not have a habit of flowing continuously. One has to help it along.
First look to your posture and how you are breathing. This affects your attitude much more than most people give it credit for. Sit or stand up straight and breathe deeply. Use a well thought out appropriate affirmation and move on.
Break things down until they are ridiculously small and simple actions to take. Make promises. Commit yourself to people you care about, and that will encourage you. Crowd out the negative with a multitude of prescribed positive affirmations.
Anchor positive thoughts to potentially negative feelings. Avoid procrastination triggers. You know which ones I mean. You know which ones they are!
They are the same thoughts habitually running around in our heads telling us the exact opposite of what we really want.
Write them down, get them out where you can see them! Then, plan how you will overcome them when they come up. You know they will . . . Plan for it now and turn them around.
I don’t feel like doing it now. — But it just can’t wait! I better do it now.
I don’t know whether I can do this. — But it just can’t wait! I can start it now.
I don’t want to start today. — But it just can’t wait! I promised I would, so I will.
. . . etc., etc. You get the idea.
Whatever has been preventing you from taking immediate and decisive action can be turned around.
Go ahead, turn it around now and then celebrate and take notice of your success each time. It will get easier every time you are successful. It will become habitual, and that’s what you want!
I’ve gone on and on again. Oh, well, what can I say? I’m excited! I’ll shave these messages down yet. ‘See’ you soon.
