Is there something that you want to do, maybe that you’ve always wanted to do, that you still haven’t done? Do you know what’s stopping you?
They’re good reasons. (But challenge them. Often, you have, or can easily obtain, everything you need.)
Sometimes, there’s something else underneath.
If you’re like most humans who have a goal, massive or minute, procrastination is fed by a more intangible roadblock: lack of confidence.
Chances are your dream requires a lot of sustenance to grow, bloom, thrive. Insecurity drains its energy supply.
Good news: Confidence is a renewable resource. And self-care is the source.
When you do things that give you juice, when your activities are empowering instead of exhausting, your confidence grows exponentially… and it’s not only renewable, it’s transferable.
Running that half-marathon gives you the goods to dominate the new product you’ve committed to creating next week. Accurately recording how many to-do items you complete every day provides the huge sense of accomplishment that’ll lead to tomorrow morning’s maniacal productivity. Committing to a yoga and stillness practice that continuously brings you back to your center is the basis for the titanic breakthrough you’ll have on Wednesday.
Regardless of what you’re working on — a project, a relationship, a fantastical dream — keep confidence creators on your to-do list. They not only make the process much more balanced, but the chance of success much more likely.
