The Real problem is my mind i tried Dr.Neil foir techniques that i only work for 30 min & i don't have to ,i choose to work .
Still when i try to set on my computer to work my mind freeze & procrastinate And not only that i feel guilty afterward & i feel down .

which doesn't make any sense
if i want to get rid of this feeling all i have to do is to work a little

i will explain my problem in more detail :-

My Real passion is art , i used to draw when i was kid & everyone said that i'm talented + i won various drawing competition,after couple of years i don't know why or when i stopped drawing , i guess i didn't care about it , then out of now where i get the feeling that i want to make art , i started drawing but all i saw was children drawing so i deiced to dedicate this month to study 3D graphic art i get the app & i bought the tutorials & i started to learn after couple of days i stopped .

i Don't know maybe because i realized that developing my skill & getting my talent back need a lot of training & practice ?
That i want to skip the whole process of learning & get the magical talent right away?
maybe because I'm into quick fix schemes ?
i read a lot about Self-Discipline and procrastination
None of them helped .


Jut one thing i want add to all the good contributions of other fellow members. And that is GOAL.

Are you "really" pursuing things that you truely, from the bottom of your heart,[/b] love or you are just doing it because everyone else is doing it ?

My personal experience says that no matter what technique you try, if you are not going in the direction of your dreams, you will not be motivated to take any action at all... or you will loose steam sooner rather than later.

Find your strenghts.. Find what gives you immense pleasure. That you can't wait to do every morning and you do it better than the most even without any material compensation. You do it to your best abilities (even stretch yourself) because it makes you feel good inside... It makes you feel significant in your eyes. What are the things that you would rather do even without the compensation of money and then figure out how you can be of service to others who need help in that field..

I will give you an example from one of Jack Canfield's Audio Series. Somewhere in America, there was a woman who loved watching opera and other gossip programs more than anything else... She came up with an idea that if she loves it so much, there must be other people who also share the similar hobby.

So she created a website where she would update all the major operas and other programs and people would pay to keep up-to-date with their favourite programs who otherwise miss all the daily gossips. Eventually she started earning decent income from home thru the website... and having a ball of time at that...

Example was given just to get your creative juices flowing... You will have lot more of fun earning money doing what you love rather than doing what you loathe.

I think the real reason of procrastination is the deep-seated dislike for the activity that you are forcing yourself to do... Have you ever thought that if you are procrastinating for let's say going to gym then at the same time, you are may be watching TV which is more emotionally satisfying to you.. You just can't sit idle and do nothing.. Everyone has preferences for something...

Find your preferences... AND GO FOR IT...

My two cents..

Good luck !!

"My real passion is Art"

When you think of your real passion of Art, how do you feel? Your emotional response is a good indicator of whether it really is your true passion or not. A true passion is irrestistible, and you'll get fired up and inspired even thinking about it!! Procrastination cannot exist in the presence of true passion!

We can hold many false beliefs about what we really want in our lives - we get so many messages as we grow up about what we should and shouldn't be doing with our lives. Maybe you only [b]think
that Art is your real passion. Maybe it's moved on, or evolved into something slightly different. Never assume, as you keep changing with time. Change is the only constant!

Go deep within and really listen to your heart when you ask the question "What do I really want?" Then ask "and what will that give me?" You'll get closer to the core of who you really are each time you explore this!

Yes i get emotionally fired up and i know that i want to do , but as sybervision course said about the teen who go to rock concerts & love music deiced to buy guitar & get few lessons then quit after he realize how hard it is & it need time to master it same happened to me i get the tools & get few lessons then realize it how hard it is and it needs time years to master it .
i guess procrastination play it role with this point .
i guess this is my problem i'm into get everything easily & quickly or what they call it silver bullet now 'im doing some affirmation to get over it + doing dr.neil foir techniques

Thanks for your help

hey dude,

Just reading some great studies on this over the weekend.

The reason we procrastinate is because when we start a task we create a sense of 'needing' to complete it! This basically is the force that gets us to finish what we start and it's a very real nervous energy. The problem is, when we believe that tasks are going to be TOO big to finish, as a safety mechanism we just come up with some excuse/distraction to NOT do it, or do something else (anything else) instead.

As such on of the keys to overcoming procrastination is to chunk down all big tasks, and just decide to spend 10 minutes at one of those chunks.... after 10 minutes, you get into it and build momentum.

Try it out.

One suggestion that has worked for me in this case (i am impatient too) is to network with successful people of the same profession.

Napoleon Hill calls this Mastermind group... Others call it mentoring... But if you have someone to look upto and they can guide you from where you are to where you want to go, path will be lot easier..

Seeing other successful people, seeing them enjoying the fruits of their labour, spending time with them, being part of their successful and happy life will keep your fire burning...

my two cents..

Good luck and stick to it, no matter what !!!
