7 Steps to Beat Procrastination | How to Beat Procrastination

Today, you are going to finally stop falling prey to procrastination. Here are 7 things that you can do to escape the cycle of putting things off:

1. Have a goal. 

Whether you’re starting a business or getting married, you need to have a goal. And that desire for your goal needs to be greater than your fear of what you have to do to achieve it. 

For even more detail and examples, click “PLAY” on the video below.

2. Make a list.

Make an exhaustive list of all the ‘whys’ surrounding what you want to do. Fill up an entire page! 

No reason is good or bad, or better or worse than the one. The more items you can list, the closer you’ll be to uncovering the real reason why you want to accomplish your goal.

3. Know how to face resistance. 

You’re trying to build something that wasn’t there before, so there’s going to be natural resistance. The other resistance comes from inside your brain – your Little Voice. 

You can’t let your Little Voice overtake the mission. Think of resistance as a force of nature, and it’s there to stop you from doing your work. When it shows up, you need determination to get past it. 

When resistance shows up, say to yourself: “This is why I’m doing what I’m doing.”

(That’s why your list from step 2 is so important.)

4. You become what you repeat. 

Whatever you repeat to yourself…You will believe it. It doesn’t matter if it’s “you’re not ready”, “not old enough”, or “not experienced enough” – If you repeat it, you believe it. 

You burn it into your brain. 

You’ve got to overcome this programming in all areas of life, even small ones. 

For example, don’t wait to take out the trash. Do it right now, and that practice will shift into other sectors of your life to eradicate procrastination. 

5. Declutter your space. 

Get rid of distractions. 

Clean up everything lying around in your office in order to create a clean and pristine space. This is conducive to focus, and you can set up your environment to win. 

6. Use affirmations. 

Here is a great affirmation to start with: “I have faith in myself. I believe in myself. I trust myself. I’ve got this.” 

Affirmations empower you and bring your energy up – you’re working the chemicals in your brain to form new neural pathways. If you don’t do this, your procrastination may get stronger. 

7. Have an accountability partner.

Have someone who will hold your toes to the fire. They might bug the crap out of you… Well, that’s because they believe in you. 

It’s not about the end result; it’s about who you become in the process. And that person is your amazing self – go out there and be that person today. 

It takes conscious effort to be able to beat procrastination. There is always this little voice inside your head that is telling you you can’t do it.

You can choose to be the master of that Little Voice inside you that casts doubt and makes you question yourself.

8 Secrets They Won’t Tell You About Business

The harsh realities of ascending a massive mountain mirror the harsh realities of building and scaling a business – along with the joy, fun, exhilaration, and rewards. This is something I learned on my many Kilimanjaro climbs. 

Here are 8 lessons that no one ever teaches you about building a business:

1. The power to recruit. 

Gather the best people to work together towards your company mission. The ability to inspire and motivate people is a critical skill in building your team. 

Think about it this way, when you recruit and develop a strong team, you are building a valuable asset for the future of your business.

2. The team cannot do the climb for you.

While that’s true, you can’t make it to the top of a mountain without a team. The team doesn’t absolve you from learning skills, being tough, and envisioning your future – but it does teach you how to be a productive part of something bigger. 

3. Take things one step at a time. 

You reach the top of the mountain by taking one step at a time. Building a business is the same. If you try to bite off more than you can chew, you’ll become unfocused. 

4. It’s not about the summit. 

If you’re going to be a great business owner, understand that the lessons and wins along the way accumulate with the purpose of delivering a special message. If you’re hyper-focused on reaching the top, what happens on the journey becomes irrelevant. 

5. Protocols are in place for a reason. 

Protocols are in place to protect the team, whether you’re climbing a mountain or building a business. It’s easy to get lazy about protocols, which causes people to get hurt. Don’t let that happen to you. 

6. There are two important aspects to a big project. 

The first part is the climb itself. The other part is the preparation, which takes much longer. You have to learn to love both parts. 

7. There’s a difference between your first and second time climbing. 

In the beginning, your sensory acuity is high, you may be worried, and you’re in a frenzy. After you successfully come back and go again, all of the unknowns are gone. Now, you can focus on getting the job done without anxiety. 

It’s the same in business. After you escape the startup phase, you can operate without stress. 

8. Know your loyalty chain. 

Who will you never double back on? What people will you always put first? As entrepreneurs, we tend to forget about family because we’re so caught up in reaching the summit. To avoid this, create a loyalty chain and never waver from it. If you don’t have a loyalty chain, you may reach your goal, but the collateral damage will be severe. 

Kilimanjaro has an established path to the top. Unlike Kilimanjaro there are many paths to reach your business goals. No one will tell you these 8 tips on the way to the top, so it’s important that I share them with you today. 

Let’s be real. 

Introducing yourself can be terrifying. Fear, uncertainty, and doubt creep in, and can get in the way.  It’s one of those obstacles you need to face, lik

It got me thinking, what if there was a simple way to overcome your fear, and present your best self?
