Hey there fellow entrepreneurs! 👋
We all know that entrepreneurship comes with its fair share of challenges, and one of the biggest obstacles we face is procrastination and resistance. 😩
Am I right?!
In this vlog, I’m going to give you 6 Strategies for beating Procrastination and Resistance.
Whether you’re struggling to take that first step or feeling demoralized by a lack of response, these tactics are sure to help you overcome your mental hurdles and get back on track. From setting specific goals to embracing your imperfections, I’ve got some *tricks* just for you!
So sit back, relax, and get ready to learn how to beat those pesky mental blocks once and for all! 🤓
When it comes to achieving our goals, we often put a ton of pressure on ourselves to be perfect all the time. 🙅 But here’s the thing – we’re not superhuman! We can’t expect ourselves to be at peak performance 24/7. That’s why strategy number one for beating procrastination and resistance is to reduce your expectations.
Now, I know that might sound counterintuitive, but trust me on this. By giving yourself permission to do things imperfectly, you’re actually setting yourself up for success. 🙌 Done is better than perfect, and sometimes a B- effort is all you need to get the ball rolling.
So don’t let perfectionism hold you back! Remember, it’s just a protection mechanism designed to keep you safe. Instead, embrace the power of imperfection and start taking action today. Who knows, you just might surprise yourself with what you’re capable of! 😉
As an optimist, I love to focus on the good things in life. But here’s the thing – sometimes things go wrong. 🤷♀️ And that’s okay! That’s why tactic number two for beating procrastination and resistance is to plan for things to go wrong.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Kaye, that sounds like a total bummer!” But trust me, it’s actually a really practical strategy. Studies show that making contingency plans in advance can help you navigate tough situations with ease. Whether it’s sticking to your health goals during a family event or having content in reserves for your 30-day action taking sprint, planning ahead can make all the difference.
So don’t wait for the inevitable to happen – be proactive and plan for the what-ifs! 💪 Who knows, you might just surprise yourself with how prepared you are. And if things still go wrong? Well, at least you’ll be ready to handle them like a boss! 🙌
Sometimes it can be hard to know where to start or what’s even possible when we’re faced with a big, hairy goal. That’s why idea number three for beating procrastination and resistance is to give yourself artificial deadlines!
– HEAR ME OUT! By setting a deadline, even if it’s totally made up, you’re giving yourself a clear target to aim for. And that can be a game-changer when you’re feeling overwhelmed.
So go ahead and announce your deadline to the world! 📣 Tell your email list, your social media followers, your friends, your family – anyone who will listen. By sharing your deadline, you’re creating a sense of accountability that can be a powerful motivator. And hey, if you need a little extra push, there’s always the promise of a reward at the end of it all. 🎁
Let me tell you about tactic number four: sharing in the struggle. We all have those moments when we think we’re the only ones going through a tough time, am I right? But here’s the thing – chances are, you’re not alone in feeling that way.
That’s why I absolutely ❤️ Brand Clarity Collective – it’s a community of like-minded entrepreneurs who come together to support each other. And let me tell you, it’s so powerful to have that kind of support system.
The best part is, you won’t always be the only one feeling that way. There will be others who’ve been there before and can give you advice or just let you know that what you’re going through is totally normal. Plus, they can remind you that things won’t always feel so hard. 🙌
When you’re facing a big challenge, sharing the struggle with a supportive community can really take the edge off. You can ask for help, commiserate, or just vent. It’s all good! So don’t be afraid to reach out and get the support you need. 💪
Is your motivation at an all-time low? Well, don’t worry – it might just be a case of not fueling yourself properly! 🍏🥦🏃♀️💧
That’s right, technique number five for beating procrastination and resistance is all about making sure you’re actually taking care of yourself. I know, I know, it sounds basic. If you’re not sleeping enough, moving your body, or eating nutritious food, then how can you expect to perform at your best?
Think of it like a car – you wouldn’t expect a car to run smoothly if you never put gas in it or changed the oil, would you? The same goes for your body and brain. By fueling yourself with what you need – rest, movement, healthy food, and water – you’re setting yourself up for success! 💪
Now, I’m not saying you have to be perfect. We all have days where we don’t sleep well or eat junk food. But if you make a habit of taking care of yourself, you’ll be amazed at how much your motivation and energy levels improve. So go ahead and prioritize your basic needs first – your brain and body will thank you for it! 🙌
Alrighty, folks! We’ve made it to the final tactic for beating procrastination and resistance – and it’s a good one! 🙌 Sometimes, starting is the hardest part. But fear not, because tactic number six is all about starting anywhere!
That’s right, my friends. You don’t always have to start at the beginning or tackle the hardest task first. Sometimes, it’s more beneficial to start with an easy part or jump in somewhere in the middle. The key is to get that momentum going!
Dave Ramsey, financial guru extraordinaire, preaches this principle with his debt repayment strategy. Start with the smallest debt first, so you can get the psychological win of seeing results and building momentum. And the same goes for any project or goal!
So if one tactic isn’t working for you, don’t worry. Just start anywhere and let that momentum carry you through.
