Over the past couple years, I’ve been learning more and more about Procrastination and how it had been impacting my life. I knew I was doing it, but the real reason behind it all was still unclear.
In all the reading, all the courses I have been taking and the deep inner work I have been doing – I know now that most of the time it was “Fear of failure” that was causing my Procrastination. Fear is usually behind most people’s procrastinations.
YES, Fear of failure!
Failure – that the workshops I was producing wouldn’t be something others would be interested in, the blog posts wouldn’t get read, the artwork I created wouldn’t be bought or even looked at, etc.
When you have grown up in a family where no encourage was given, or the teachers in your life weren’t interested in that either, you tend to degrade yourself and if you do accomplish something, only YOU cares. Its been a life long journey to learning to not only LOVE yourself but to know that YOU are worthy, just like the rest of the world. That YOU have something to offer!
Learning how procrastination was impacting my daily life, has shown so many life lessons like the ones above.
