Empowering You to Build and Grow Your Laptop Lifestyle


Why is it that we as human beings often behave in way that we really don’t want to?

How often have you done or said something only to cringe at the thought of it afterwards?

The truth is that your behaviour is mostly driven by your subconscious mind, especially when the behaviour is hard to explain for an intellectual point of view.

What is the Root Cause for Procrastination

What is Procrastination?

Procrastination is knowing what you need to do and having the ability and the desire to do it, But for some reason you still don’t do it.

Although there may be many actual causes for procrastination, the root cause for this inconsistent behaviour exists in your subconscious mind.

You see your conscious mind is very limited in its ability to deal with life, and is only able to deal with one thing at a time.

This is why using you willpower to create any real changes will rarely work in the long term.

What Do You Need To Do in Order To Change?

What you will need to do is to in order to change your automatic behaviour which exists in your subconscious mind, which is the part of you that controls all the vital functions of your mind and your body.

You could try to overcome procrastination by using your willpower but it will only lead to short term change.

The Cause for your procrastination is not your conscious actions but in fact it lies within your subconscious links and this is mainly responsible for your behaviour.

Did you know that your nervous system is designed to preserve you when the feeling of fear presents itself?

Your nervous system works through your sub-conscious, so when you fear presents itself your sub-conscious will kick in to protect you.

The thing is that we ourselves train ourselves, unconsciously to fear certain thing by making false associations about the meaning of fear.

What I am saying is that we give things it meaning because nothing in life has any meaning but the meaning you give it.

So this means that you literally create neurological links to the experiences that get stored in your nervous system so that when you experience something the same or similar you responses will be quicker the next time.

Whenever something happens to you, your will assign a meaning to it by the way that you communicate the experience to yourself.

Sub-Consciously you are always trying to establish meaning to your experiences and at the very basic level you are trying to establish whether something means pleasure or pain to you.

The meaning that you attached to each of your experiences will then get stored in your sub-conscious mind so that it will help you react or act appropriately in your future.

The challenge is that when associations are reinforced you will start to build a belief system that will greatly influence your behaviour and this is often the cause for procrastination.

What is the root cause for Procrastination

Procrastination is Fear From Past Experiences

Although procrastination make no sense intellectually it actually reveals a lot about your sub-conscious and the reasons why you have placed limitations on your abilities.

Did you know that the main cause for procrastination is fear itself?

Before I go on I just want to say that most things that are feared never happen and the other thing is that fear is nothing more than false evidence appearing real.

  • F = False
  • E = Evidence
  • A = Appearing
  • R = Real

In saying that procrastination is fear and being more specific the fear that taking action will lead to pain or a painful experience of some kind.

At some level your sub-conscious mind combines and searches its files to link up with what it associates the action with a painful experience.

This can range from something which is mildly uncomfortable to something physically painful.

Although you consciously want to do something your sub-conscious mind will prevent you as it will associate the action with pain.

It is much easier to stay in your comfort zone and as human being we will automatically reach for whatever feels comfortable in that moment.

This is one of the main reasons why you will often procrastinate when you have to do a task that does not feel good in the moment, even when doing that task will bring your more pleasure in the future.

Pushing Through Procrastination

Pushing through Procrastination Towards Success

Right learning to push through procrastination and wanting the need for comfort is what is going to create your personal growth and let’s face we all want to improve personally along with becoming more successful in what we do.

So pushing against the need for comfort is what is going to create the growth that is needed for you to really produce results.

When you start to see procrastination developing you need to stop seeing it as a blessing in disguise and stop embracing like a long lost friend.

Remember that procrastination is revealing your fears and will start to give you the necessary resistance needed to stop your growth and push past experiences in front of you that will stop you moving towards the things that you really want for your life.

The quality of your life is in direct proportion to the amount of discomfort you can comfortable deal with.

Procrastination can also show you some insight into what goals you most value, as you concern over procrastinating on it will show you that some part of you care enough to be concerned.

Some people would say that we should first form our habits and then our habits will form us.

This is why it is important to realise that procrastination can become habit and can often manifest itself as a habitual pattern of thinking.

Your thoughts will lead you to help and create your actions.

This can become a cycle of the same old pattern of behaviour if you do not take action to change it.

Here’s the tough truth you probably already know.

If you want different results you need to do something different.

Make a definitive decision right now to get different results

You associations to pain and pleasure play an important part in your habitual behaviour in that it determines what you will or will not do.

Repetition is an important part to form habitual patterns of thinking and will cause you to automatically act or react in a certain way when your habit pattern gets triggered.

When you become aware of your associations to pleasure and pain is critical in dealing with the root cause of procrastination.

There are many suggestive solutions that will not create lasting results.

Although you have to use your will power in the beginning, your aim is to re-establish your associations to the tasks you are avoiding.

Remember this, and that is that you can have, be or have whatever you want providing that you can overcome your self-induced fears and take action to change.

Although the real cause for procrastination is located in your sub-conscious mind, you are in control of your conscious actions.

So in closing knowing all of this making the change is totally up to you.

Here’s the tough truth you probably already know.

If you want different results you need to do something different.
