One fascinating hallmark of all highly motivated
millionaires is their strongly held conviction that they
will succeed. Whatever it takes and despite any challenges
that crop up.
How do they overcome procrastination?
People who are inspired by their dreams believe with
certainty they will achieve their goals even if they do not
know how all the details will work out. This sense of
certainty is due in part to their empowering belief system
and also to the way they represent their goals to
themselves inside their minds.
Have you ever got excited about your goals and then slowly
over time lost your enthusiasm? Most people do.
The difference is that the winners in life are able to
relight that passion and desire to keep on going until they
get what they want.
What are these rich and successful people doing differently
to everyone else? They know how to build an internal state
of certainty that they will succeed despite any short-term
challenges. This overcome procrastination.
You can have this same sense of certainty by visualizing
your top five goals as already achieved at least once a day.
Picture your goals as already achieved and enjoy the
feelings of satisfaction.
Hear people complimenting you on your success and really
soak up the feelings of success. Make the pictures, sounds
and feelings as lifelike as possible. Keep going until you
feel with certainty that you will achieve this goal –– as
sure as the sun will rise in the morning!
When you do this you will overcome procrastination.
If the success of the goal seems uncertain play with the
picture in your mind until it does feel certain. Compare
how you picture, hear and see your goal with your
expectation that the sun will rise tomorrow. Making the
picture bigger, closer, brighter and more colorful usually
helps to make it seem more realistic.
When you do this each day you are telling your unconscious
mind to keep searching for ways to achieve your goal and
you will consistently be motivated. You will also find that
your intuition guides you and presents you with ideas that
will help you to move ahead.
It used to bother me picturing my goals as already achieved
to the point of certainty...
Overcome procrastination each day by doing this.
I feared that it would make me lazy since my brain would
believe the goal would just turn up. And I used to think if
I thought of the goal as certain I would be fooling myself
into believing I would achieve it despite immediate
evidence to the contrary.
However the opposite is true.
That sense of certainty propels you forward to create what
you are imagining. Plus when you are off target it stands
out a mile because your results are so inconsistent with
your expectations. You are then compelled to get back on
Like an artist expressing himself with paints you can
become an artist creating your goals in the world around
you from the inspiration inside your mind.
You will never have a 100% guarantee that you will succeed
however the more certain you feel about your future the
more energy you will invest in achieving your goals. And
the corresponding actions you take will naturally improve
your chances of success.
A number of years ago I saw Donald Trump, the New York
property developer, getting interviewed on TV. I paid close
attention to the way he communicated as well as to what he
said. He positively exuded certainty when he spoke about his
next big development. Every fiber of his being proclaimed
that the new venture would be a huge success.
Trump exudes certainty and this success aura attracts
investors and encourages other people to believe in his
vision. You can be sure that when he pictures his goals he
does so with certainty. Start small if you like and as your
confidence grows build up to bigger goals.
Remember to make this a daily habit and you will be able to
keep on going even at times when you face setbacks.
You will finally overcome procrastination.
