How to Overcome Procrastination in 20 Minutes or Less

  How to Overcome Procrastination in 20 Minutes or Less

You probably think this would be a dream come true, so perhaps I can give you a tool to stay organized and focused so you can finally have the life you’ve been dreaming about.

Well, that’s true. I’m going to give you a good strategy for getting it all done!

BUT first let’s get clear on WHY you want your business to produce for you in the first place. Answer these two question for me.

Write your answers on a piece of paper.

1) What do you want next in your business so you can make the money you want?

2)  Why do you want that? Specifically, why do you want that? Do you have a family vacation you’ve been dying to go on? Maybe you hate the idea of working for someone else for the rest of your life. If you are like me, you get unproductive unless you are doing something you love. – You get the idea.. What’s your real reason that you want your business to succeed?

Let’s get down to the #1 culprit for not making it in your business.

I know you might think it’s because you don’t KNOW enough yet or some other logical reason why you’re not getting the results you want, but the truth is you procrastinate on the things you are unsure of!

Here’s why it becomes a lifelong business sabotage.
If you are running a business that is growing every single year, then you will ALWAYS be unsure of something. It comes with being a woman entrepreneur.

What happens when you procrastinate?
You lose momentum and profitability.

Step #1 As a woman in business, you’ve got to network with other women so you gain the mindset that anything is possible. Get on Google and find a local eWoman network meeting in your area or something along those lines. – DO THIS if you want to succeed!

You’re not in alignment with what you want!

Ok – so are you being truthful with why you want your business to rock?

Step #2 Most of the time when someone is procrastinating, I find UNCERTAINTY around what they want. This is why I created the Making Money Online program to help new businesswomen get their businesses off the ground fast. 

Not every woman wants to make a million dollars. The first time I heard that, it was like a pile of stress dripped off my back. It’s true, though. Trust me, there are a lot of profitable business models that actually make more money than the million-dollar enterprise because of simplicity. Don’t be afraid to want less and love what you do!

Clarity makes a world of difference.

Step #3 You’ve heard this before, but maybe it’s time you receive it. Clarity is POWER!
Have a step-by-step monthly plan to get where you want to be.

You can find some clarity in last week’s blog post “Resistance Breakthrough” to help you with that. It was a good one. And while you are there, please leave me a comment.

It’s simple. In fact, if it’s too busy or confusing, then your plan is probably not going to work. Find your stride in your business and keep the three steps above as a reminder to stay focused, and procrastination will be a thing of the past.

One of the best parts of my day is hearing from you.

Live with prosperity and love,
