Eliminate Procrastination!

Procrastination is driven by a series of negative beliefs and feelings.

Procrastination is a behavioral tendency that results when beliefs and feelings such as the following take over:

  1. The fear of failure.
  2. The fear of success.
  3. The fear of rejection.
  4. The belief that one is inadequate.
  5. The belief that one is not good enough.
  6. The belief that one is unworthy or undeserving.
  7. The belief that one’s success will be envied and/or taken away by others.
  8. The fear of envy.
  9. Feelings of low self-confidence.
  10. The fear of attracting negative attention.
  11. The fear of taking responsibility for one’s self.
  12. The need to be taken care of.
  13. Feelings of anger and resentment towards others.
  14. The need to get revenge in passive-aggressive ways.

And so on.

When one is stuck in the inertia so commonly felt with procrastination there is a sense of powerlessness, immobility, confusion, vague feelings of depression, low self-worth and self-esteem, a sense of purposelessness, self-doubt, agitation, boredom, and loss of passion or enthusiasm etc.

Beliefs and Feelings

What is not seen however are the underlying drivers, the beliefs and feelings mentioned above lying below the conscious state in your subconscious mind, often causing the free will to shut down.

The only way to release oneself from this state is to become conscious of those programs and erase/delete/release them from within once and for all.  I’ve successfully guided many groups and individuals to do this with EFT!

EFT Transforms Cravings and Fear-Based Challenges

Emotional Freedom Technique also known at EFT/ tapping is the talk of the day. This amazing modality is based on the body’s energies and a simple statement that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the energy system.

As you may know and most of the medical industry is now discovering, when we have physical problems they are almost always connected with our emotions. Emotional Freedom Technique comes to the rescue and is showing astounding results; in some cases after one or two sessions.
(Continued Here)

EFT reverses cravings and releases fear/phobias as well as relieving physical symptoms associated with stress and anger.

The system I use is based on the teachings of Gary Craig. I guide the participants through several rounds of tapping as described in my ebook:

EFT Transforms Cravings and Fear-Based Challenges

Stop procrastinating and take action!

We all procrastinate; acknowledgment of being in this mode is the first step in moving forward. All procrastination is fear based and manifests itself through negative statements such as:

“not the right time now” “why even bother…can happen (worst case scenario).” Sometimes the act of “non-doing” is an indication that the idea needs to be tossed.

What holds us back from accomplishing our goals is fear.

  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of judgement
  • Fear of success
  • Fear of being controlled
The Good News

The Good news is that EFT ( The Emotional Freedom Technique) is wonderfully successful in reversing procrastination, as usually deeper emotional issues are involved. It is based on the simple statement that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system . (Continued Here)

We can  find joy in the chores and tasks we don’t especially like – sometimes all we need is a change of attitude, a different approach, a little music, or some help from friends or family, and the tasks or responsibilities that we perceive as tedious ie: washing dishes, fixing the car, cleaning a closet, can become a source of satisfaction.

Most of us tend to put off what it is that we don’t want to do. Yet, one of the best approaches to an unpleasant task or dull chore is to dive right in and be fully mindful of what it is that you are doing.

Playing your favorite music, dancing while you work, or creating a mental list of everything you are grateful for are just a few ways to turn an unexciting activity into a fun event. Look for joy in doing your mundane activities, and they’ll become a source of enjoyment rather than a tolerable duty.
Need help in getting started? If you are procrastinating, it is based on one or more of the fears below.   EFTtapping can help light the fire and transform procrastination into action!
~fear of failure
~fear of being judged
~fear of success
~fear of being controlled

You always have a choice even though you may not realize it in the moment. Circumstances may be beyond your control; your attitude is your choice.

Going to the places that scare you, being fearless and choosing to be resilient, that’s what this blog is about.

I became fearless going on the “scary” rides in Coney Island, Brooklyn as a child even though I never would go on the parachute- there were known accidents on that one and I was very safety conscious- Mom was a worrier.  Do you know that only 8% of what we worry about is over legitimate concerns (worry!).
Going in the front car of the roller coaster, approaching the top (with friends of course ) and looking at the big drop ahead gave no time to do anything except scream & hold on tight! So it went through the fun summer months. Thinking back over the years, I did many courageous things and not much scared me. Here are a few that got me thinking back to the scary rides…:
Walking on hot coals while on a mind body spirit retreat in Santa Fe ( first time away from my young children too). We had lots of prep time and when it was my turn I was ready. Awesome.

Skiing.This wasn’t worth it for me; injured and it could’ve been worse… Later on I took up cross country- fun!

Para sailing Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. This was the ultimate overcome of fear of heights for me. I was sitting on the beach for several days meditating (and drinking pina coladas) and surprised myself with the conscious decision into action. Very challenging and I did look down a few times when I wasn’t looking at the mountain.

Forty-nine years ago: Steve & I rode our bikes out of Florence (where we bought the racers- and mine was a boy’s with the bar- the only kind made at the time) and I scared myself with a coughing attack that precipitated me throwing the pack(s) of Marlboros out- which was scary ‘cause I couldn’t imagine not smoking “cold turkey” which I succeeded at. And it was difficult- maybe not scary- to totally change our travel plans so that we went back to the city and got the bikes on trains that rode out of the seven hills, through the Alps and landed us in Germany to enjoy the rolling hills (so we could use all the gears ) and along the Rhine onto Holland. Of course we stopped to eat and sleep in foreign lands- sometimes in hostels and sometimes in the forest, scary and amazing.
I’m happy to be telling you all now. When friends and strangers comment on (both) our daughters living in Europe – I smile and am happy we brought them up with roots and wings – and the ability to navigate the scary and unknown.
• The scariest thing of all for me was 9/11 and the period following that. Were we really OK? Then it became more than me and being empty nested- yes our daughters already just in Europe- and it was much more than getting off the coach and back onto the treadmill and back into the gym- even that was scary after a dark period.
• Now getting through the airports is kinda scary. Getting off the Long Island RR into Penn station is fine if I look straight ahead and focus. That’s it, and what I recommend:
When things get scary look straight ahead and focus. Be in the moment as much as times permit.

Be Present. Be Happy.
Be Resilient!

Do you know what your intuitive “cues” or “clues” from your power center – usually the gut – are?  A pang in your gut when you may be doing the wrong thing, or a vibrant zing when your body approves, can guide you reliably at times when logic fails. Sometimes, when logic prevails, we ignore our gut and live to regret it, understanding later that a rational approach is only one way of determining what is going on in a situation and how we can react.

Our gut resides in the neighborhood of our solar plexus just above your belly button. When it is functioning well, we can trust its guidance and adjust our actions accordingly. Many of us have a tendency to hold in this area of our bodies. We may take shallow breaths that never reach this vital center that is the source of our empowerment. It is in this place that we find the courage to act and be assertive. When our power center is out of balance, we are timid and out of sync, wishing we had said something we were only able to phrase later when we were alone; wishing we had acted on an opportunity we didn’t see until it was past.
Hunter Mountain 2
In order to trust and utilize your power center more consistently, you may want to focus your attention on it regularly and make time to care for it. You can begin right now by taking a deep breath into your belly. On the exhale, pull your navel in toward your spine so as to empty out completely before taking another deep breath into your belly. When you empty completely, you release stagnant energy and create more space to be filled with fresh, nourishing breath. The more you practice this simple exercise, the more clear and communicative your feelings will be and the more comfortable you will feel acting on them.

CALL for a FREE CONSULT: 516 623 4353  www.balanceandpower.com 

Another way to nourish your power center is with EFT tapping.  When working with EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) we close a round with three strong power breaths. The combination is double empowering and a perceived fear factor can go from 9 to 1 in a short amount of time – and then you’re ready to rock!!

Do you make these statements often?:   “not the right time now”   “why even bother…can happen (worst case scenario).”

Sometimes the act of “non-doing” is an indication that the idea needs to be tossed.

What holds us back from accomplishing our goals is fear.

  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of being judged
  • Fear of success
  • Fear of being controlled

These fears are often caused by deeply routed anxieties.  No matter- you can turn it all around with EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques: Meridian Tapping) combined with positive language-visualization reframing techniques and the intention to do just that!

 If these kind of things keep happening to you, you have a problem:

  • If you’ve experienced painful consequences as a result of putting things off or not finishing projects.
  • If you are sick and tired of being late with deadlines
  • If your friends, coworkers or loved ones get upset with you because you don’t follow through with projects or promises.

The following are common phrases/excuses people often use when they are procrastinating:

The task is:

“too boring”

“too time consuming”

“I just don’t feel like it”

“I just don’t want to”.

Good news!  Here are some tips to Reverse Procrastination: 

  • Step back and reframe the situation; visualize the action as a positive outcome.
  • Outline the steps needed to complete the project.
  • Create realistic timelines and write short and long term goals; breaking down the task into reasonable “time chunks”.
  • Allow new ideas to “percolate”.
  • Learn The EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), wonderfully successful in  reversing procrastination, as usually deeper emotional issues are involved.  This technique is described below.

Knowing that you are afraid will not magically remove fear or change behavior.  You can use The EFT Technique  to eradicate the roadblocks of guilt and fear that keep you from moving forward!  When you use EFT (Emotional Freedom technique, Tapping) and stimulate specific acupressure points the level of serotonin in the brain rises and floods the amygdala, the section of the brain involved with controlling emotion and fear, and the fear loop is disconnected.  Once the brain stops experiencing fear with the proper EFT tapping, including set-up phrases (see below examples) and intuitive NLP language guidance from an experienced EFT Practitioner, you will find that your thoughts and behaviors transform effortlessly.  You can use EFT to tap away feelings of guilt, shame or rebellion surrounding your fear factor.  Some of the “have-to’s” turn into choose to’s!  Use EFT to eradicate the roadblocks of doubt that keep you from moving forward!  Before you do the EFT, “take your temperature “on the issue- what is your level of distress with the procrastination or the level of procrastination itself, 10 being the highest.  After completing 3 rounds of EFT, see your score.  Tap on the specific issue daily, until it gets done or you decide to toss it.

Here are a few EFT “set up phrases” that can be helpful in working with procrastination:

  • “Even though I am procrastinating about…, I know it’s important and I can get it done.”
  • “Even though I keep putting off doing…I choose to get started today.”
  • “Even though I am resisting..I know I can do it.”

The set-up phrase is said as you tap on the karate chop point or the “sore spot”.

Each additional point gets tapped on 6-8 times as the practitioner and eventually you says something about your issue.  More about Tapping       eft long islandDownload: EFT Tapping Points (pdf)

After completing three rounds of tapping, sit back, take several relaxation breaths (in through the nose, out through the nose or mouth abdomen expanding before your chest) and visualize the completed outcome of your task. Write down realistic, measurable step into goals.  Decide when you will take the first action step and stay with your plan.  When the task is completed, reward yourself!!

Positive results after several rounds of tapping need to be followed up.  Check in with yourself.  Be honest.  There’s no such thing as too much tapping, too much visualization or too much relaxation breathing (happening in a safe and healthy environmentJ).

Short term challenge:  Continue tapping on your current procrastination issue daily until you are satisfied with your action steps.

Long Term Challenge: Take time every day to go over your goals and reprioritize when necessary.  Notice if any there is anything new being procrastinated about and tap on that for several days until you are satisfied with the results.

Well, I have… and I’m talking about on purpose.  Out of your comfort zone.

So, how does that feel?  Maybe a little bit scary?  Exhilerating?  Liberating??

 My client the other day was wearing a skydiving tee.  He revealed that his second wife of nine years was a skydiver when he met her.  Now that he’d taken it up they go on vacations and do that- and she’s gotten a motorcycle so that they ride side by side.  Common interests!! more than kids together :)-

 Fifteen years ago I took a ride in a basket led by a rope attached to a boat many miles over the sea looking at the mountain in front of me, Puerta Vallarta, Mexico.  That was a milestone for me! 

I  firewalked (walked over hot coals) Tony Robbins style at a Mind-Body Fitness Retreat in New Mexico aka 1982– and my first solo vacation while I had young children.  A double whammy! 

EFT (tapping, Emotional freedom Technique)Image reverses fear. Combined with coaching is a double sure shot!!

Emotional Freedom Technique – amazing Energy Meridian Tapping Techniques combined with Intuitive Language and Peak Performance Coaching – Can Help Eradicate – Relieve Physical and Emotional Negative Symptoms , Cravings and Fear!

Emotional Freedom Technique also known at EFT/ tapping is the talk of the day. This amazing modality is based on the body’s energies and a simple statement that the cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the energy system.  As you may know and most of the medical industry is now discovering, when we have physical problems they are almost always connected with our emotions. Emotional Freedom Technique comes to the rescue and is showing astounding results; in some cases after one or two sessions.   EFT reverses cravings and releases fear/phobias as well as relieving physical symptoms associated with stress and anger.  The system I use is based on the teachings of Gary Craig.  You may find my intro EFT videos, testimonials, and the link to a PDF diagram of tapping points here:   EFT  Emotional Freedom Techniques  

This is how I work with clients: After first understanding the emotional state of the client through traditional methods, it is the time to introduce EFT.  I explain the premise (above, with further explanations on the internet), how it works and then teach the tapping points.  Before getting started, I ask my client to place his level of distress with the problem (and I ask him to visualize a recent presentation of the problem that I know about from recent conversation) on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the highest level of distress.).

Then, I guide the participant through several rounds of tapping after completing 3 karate chop or “sore spot” massaging set up phrases described in my ebook:  eBooks/Products Image

When I’m satisfied that much has been further revealed and released in the tapping rounds, then I close the session by asking for a number as in the beginning.  If it has not gone down significantly, I continue with new set up phrases and several more tapping rounds.  I close my session with several relaxation breaths and a guided positive visualization relevant to the situation.

Follow up: I request that the client tap on his own every AM (in the shower works well:))and throughout the day as needed for 21 days (to be safe; sometimes the fear or craving is reversed within one or two sessions!). Sometimes I write personalized script(s) and continue to integrate EFT into subsequent coaching/counseling sessions.
