Why do we procrastinate? Why do we let something invisible get in the way of our success?
We procrastinate a lot because it’s our human nature to find excuses that we can’t do it, no matter how many delays you have, there’s always going to be an excuse.
You see, we procrastinate everything and make a lot of excuses just to get away from it to avoid responsibilities.
We all think taking responsibility is hard work because we got a lack of motivation in ourselves that we want to relax, not take any action and not do anything to achieve our goals.
Why do I procrastinate more when I have more time
We procrastinate more is because we don’t want to take any challenges that can help us to succeed while we got more time.
We procrastinate more is because we don’t want the hassle of solving problems in our business because we get too comfortable with how the business is and we don’t want to change.
In business, you got to be willing to take criticism by your personal coach or the customers.
You can refuse to take the advice from your mentor because it’s your business, but your mentor is here to help you and guide you in the right direction for you to become successful.
When you refuse your mentors advice, your procrastinating because you don’t want to change, you want to leave it as it is and you don’t want to take criticism because it hurts, so you’re procrastinating for not taking criticism and you want to find an excuse.
When people procrastinate, they say “I can’t do it” while they got potential to do it. The excuses we make like “I can’t be bothered to do it”, ” I do it tomorrow” and “it’s too much work” and these excuses will hold us back for being negative
Too many entertainments and distractions can cause you to procrastinate because you been spending a lot of leisure time, so in your mind is telling you to find an excuse to wait and not take action.
Do I stop procrastinating
I do try to stop procrastinating when I was working on my website to make my site in good shape, there are some people say that I should change my theme on one of the feedbacks, they said that my header image was too big, they said I should get a footer on my site and take my legal page out of the menu to put it on the footer.
They said that I should get my website fixed, and I procrastinate and I didn’t take action because I don’t want the headache of fixing my site, change some few things and correct all my grammars on every post.
The reason why I procrastinate about getting my website fix is that I don’t want the headache of sorting my website out, spending all that time, the hassle to get it all fixed and I don’t want to mess up my website from the effort of creating my site.
Every time when I do get my website fix, I always mess it up and make it not the way I wanted to look, so that’s why I procrastinate about fixing my site.
My old theme was not a good theme, the layout was a bit rubbish, the header image was too big and a lot of the viewers were concerned about the structure of my old theme. I had that old theme for a while now, and I’ve finally made my decision to change my theme with a better layout.
The loading of my old theme was too slow to access to my site, so my mentor suggested me to consider to change my theme with a better layout and has a footer because my old theme doesn’t have a footer.
I’ve finally taken action and changed my theme that has a footer, but I didn’t know how to get a footer to my site to take the legal page of my top menu to the footer menu.
I was procrastinating over the issues that I was having because I don’t know how to add a footer menu to my site so I tried to add a footer, but it didn’t work so I reached out to the site support to help me to put my legal page to the footer menu, and I’ve stopped procrastinating and took action to get the site support to help me out.
At least I’ve taken action to get the site support to put my legal page to my footer even though that I don’t know how to add a footer menu.
I found adding a footer menu is complicated, but luckily we got the site support on Wealthy Affiliate who can help us with our problems like the site is down, having technical issues and etc. The site support is here to help us with our problems so there are no excuses to make.
To be honest, I haven’t been following all the training only level 1 and level 2 training, the rest of the training was a little bit too much in my opinion. I wasn’t really following all the training because it was a bit too much to learn and I couldn’t focus on the training. I keep getting confused about the training and mess up my website, so am I procrastinating or not?
I ask a lot of questions on the Wealthy Affiliate platform to get some answers from the members, and they give you good answers to help you and send you some training videos for you to watch.
When I’m stuck and confused, I always ask questions on the Wealthy Affiliate community and get the site support to fix my site.
Criticism hurts when someone is correcting you, telling you that things need to change, get your website fix, correct your grammar and write good quality contents that can attract the customers.
When someone is criticising your website, they’re trying to help you to achieve your goals. I know criticism hurts, but you have to be toughened up and take their advice.
Online business is a pain in the bottom especially if you don’t make any sales because of the structure of your website that needs to fix, and you’ve been putting a lot of effort on writing good quality contents and it’s frustrating.
It’s all depends on what keywords you use to get ranked from Google.
When you got no problem with your traffic on your site, but the user experience is your problem, you got to take action and get your website fix.
I know it’s hard to accept the criticism from your viewers because the viewers see the perspective of your site, not the time you spend and the effort you put into.
They don’t care about how much time and effort you put into creating the website, they only care about the website is bringing value and trust.
In business, you have to take criticism, no matter how hurt it is, you have to stop procrastinating and you have to toughen up.
It’s annoying when someone criticises your website, but don’t get offended when someone is criticising your website because they’re trying to help you, they’re not disliking your work.
They can see your website got potential but it’s not their right standard of your contents because good quality contents are essential.
Poor quality contents are not acceptable, you won’t make money from writing bad quality contents and that’s what the viewers are looking for, their looking for good quality contents that bring values.
I know it’s annoying and it’s a pain in the bottom when someone criticises your website, telling you to change this and change that, but you don’t have to take their criticism because it’s your business, but don’t get offended of what they’ve said that might hurt you.
A business is a challenge because there are barriers that things will hold you back, not make you succeed and you have to stay motivated to get through the obstacles.
Business is all about problem-solving and it’s a competition.
What causes procrastination
- We procrastinate is because of fear.
- We scared of people judging us.
- We don’t want the fuss of sorting things out.
- We get too comfortable with how things are and we don’t want to change.
- Human beings are very emotional and we have a mind that tells us what to do.
- It’s all comes from our mindsets either good ones or bad ones.
- If you got a mindset like a successful person, you won’t procrastinate.
- If you got a mindset like an unsuccessful person, you will procrastinate.
- Procrastinations all comes from your mind.
- Bad habits can cause you to procrastinate.
The way you think of things, the way you do things and how you behaved is all comes from our mindsets. The habits and mindsets of how you think, how you do things are very important if you want to achieve something.
If you want to achieve something, you have to think like a successful person, not wait for the best time to start and do it now.
Do you want to discipline or regrets?
We procrastinate is because we think that we are not good enough and we often compare to ourselves to others who are doing better than us.
You shouldn’t compare yourself to others around you who are better than you because everyone is different.
