Fear of challenges:
Some of you may find it really fascinating to face challenges in life but many people try to hide as they do not feel safe in challenging situations. In such situations, the mind and body get collaborated to initiate a feeling that this hard task is not essential and a procrastination event occurs. That feeling of discomfort and unsafe condition take people away from creating success stories. It is good to make efforts for positive thoughts towards different situations of life and be ready to experience new opportunities with open arms.
The feeling of 80% threshold:
It happens several times when people just develop a feeling in their mind that task is 80% done and they can take a relaxing break now. But the fact is that this is actually the moment to practice a do or die behavior. While taking up your routine projects always practice the deadline based efforts and avoid that feeling of threshold in between rather make efforts until you become successful with what you are doing.
Be honest with yourself:
When you try to convince yourself that this task can be postponed for some other hour or day then you are actually trying to fool yourself. Just because you want to live in your comfort zone doesn’t mean that you should start accepting wrong behaviors. Try to be honest to at least your own mind and soul. Commit to your work with more consistency and dedicate your time to it until you prove your abilities to achieve success.
