I feel it is instant gratification.
Hello @Israels Fusion. I love your question!
Fear. Fear of change. Fear of success. Fear of failure.
For example, my problem was diet procrastination.
It’s pretty bad when your weight loss group leader, after months of no progress, tells you to stop wasting your money and get it together first. Weight Watchers dropout. 😂
For me, I had to deal with the fact that my excess weight served a purpose. And the longer I procrastinated the more I felt like I was drowning in a “stuck” energy. Always fearing the worst. Suppose I follow the diet and still don’t lose weight?
My closest friends were overweight . How will they receive me if I’m slim?
My fat was serving as a safe barrier. What if losing weight opened up my life to unwanted attention?
If I’m no longer fat I won’t have an excuse to bow out of participating in situations I’d rather avoid.
One of the weight loss group’s mantras was always, “There’s a million ways to look at everything.” So..... maybe my friends would support me, even join me. Maybe weight loss would open up things that were desirable. Maybe new situations could be viewed as a pleasant experience instead of a predicament. Time to rethink everything.
Sometimes we want something but at the same time a fear of attaining it holds us back.
I’m sure there are many reasons for procrastination including fatigue, lack of motivation/boredom, lack of focus etc., but ultimately I’ll bet many roads lead back to fear.
That’s just my take on it.
Thank you ... :)
Putting something off that requires immediate attention. Example being very sick and not going or following up
Great discussion. For me it's usually paralysis that is caused by fear. And when I notice it happen this ALWAYS fixes it:
