Do You Know How to Shift from Procrastination to Motivation?

We've all been there before. You know what you need to do, to get moving toward your goals, but you just haven’t be able to bring yourself to do it.
Perhaps you’ve been feeling stuck and going nowhere fast. 

“The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you."      - Neil deGrasse Tyson

#1: Rock It!
Grab your headphones and your favorite playlist and turn up the volume a little. Make sure it's music that will really get you pumped up-- exciting and uplifting.
#2: Move it, move it! Ever heard the phrase,
"Motion creates emotion?" Well, now you have, so do it! Go for a jog, grab yourself by the collar and drag yourself to the gym, or just go for a
brisk walk and get the blood flowing.
#3: Relax and restore! Find a quiet place and meditate.
Spend 5 or 10 minutes and completely relax, focus on your breathing and silence your mind.
#4: Use imagery skills! What's your motivating driver? Wanting that new electric car? Request a catalog from the dealer.  A vacation in Maui? Print out a picture from the net or clip one from a magazine. Now tape it to your wall, feel the excitement and put yourself in the picture!
#5: Get Help! Want to really get moving? Have your friends hold you accountable. Jump on
Facebook and tell others about your BIG goal. Now update them on your progress once per day. If that doesn't work for you, perhaps a professional Life-Coach is in order. The fastest way to create changes is through working with the subconscious mind using hypnosis and NLP.

#6: Step Back! Take a second to see the big picture.Doing the mundane, everyday work may be dull but if it's leading you to your BIG goal then it will all be worth it. Stop and think about what you're working toward.
#7: Reality Check! Take a few minutes and write down 10 things that will happen if you DON'T get motivated. (No good, right?!) Now, rip that paper to shreds and write down ONE thing you're going to do TODAY that will take you in the right direction.

Have a friend who could use these tips? Please feel free to share this site. As ordinary people we all have potential to accomplish great things, we just need to have motivation and vision.

When you’re going to spend your time and money on counseling and hypnotherapy, you expect to work with a competent, experienced professional, someone who can truly help you, and not hurt you, or waste your valuable time and resources.
