I encountered this type of procrastination within myself, and it’s one of those strange concepts combined with strong emotions that doesn’t let you do the things that you want to. It is your inner critique at it’s best, controlling you through fear and doubt. I have made a lot of great content, but it wasn’t on the level of what I am usually used to, so I decided to publish it later…
…but that later never came!
So instead of having a lot of non-perfect blog posts, I just have a couple of them, who could be way better had I pushed out more and recieved more critique about my work. I should have given in more of myself. Because once I go back through the content of Alpha Efficiency I find myself a bit ashamed, and ask myself why didn’t I do more? Why didn’t I do better?
Because of the fear!
Fear is one of the strongest emotions that human being can posses, but once it’s concealed in your mind, you will see that fear is lurking under countless hundreds of excuses on why you didn’t do this or that?! And I am perfect example. This is why I will get back to pushing my articles without prior grammer check up. If I stop for a second I might get afraid, so I am going to jump into the water, while I still didn’t see it.
What will those people think about my writing? Will they be able to tell that English is not my native? Will they even care? Will my message resonate with them? It’s approval seeking syndrome, which will put you in a frenzy over your work. The secret is in just letting it go! Once you do that, all the creative energy will start flowing in the right direction and you will get things done. Your way!
Don’t let the fear keep you upside down!
Don’t let the fear take over and slow down your goals. Don’t let fear take over your productive mindset and undermine your efforts! It’s of crucial importance that you let those breaks go and “hit publish”, or do that tasks that frightens you the most!
Break your fear every day, and you will see where will that lead you! If you think about yourself working, while working you will move out of the zone, because your inner critique will show up and mess up your plans. Be faster than him and don’t let him react!
Do you have concealed fear that is preventing you from moving forward?
