Do you want to overcome procrastination and start living? Do you always put off doing what you supposed to get done? Procrastination is one of the most common success killers that most people faced. And it is not a time management problem, in fact, procrastination is a habit problem. Thus, if you want to get rid of this destructive habit, start by learning to manage yourself.
There are tons and tons of goals, dreams and targets go down into the drain because of procrastination. And what you are going to discover here today are the top 3 ultimate tips to overcome procrastination. These powerful and effective tips can change the way you live and will make you more productive if you will just apply them in your life...
1. Vision board and powerful affirmationDo you know that the main reason people procrastinate is because they do not have the motivation to do the task? And in order for you to get motivated, you can create a vision board of what you want. All you need to do is to cut out pictures of what you want to accomplish and paste them either into your success journal or a board so that you can see them every day. Our subconscious mind thinks in pictures, this is why this technique is powerful.
Next, you can create a powerful affirmation. For example, you can write down your affirmation as "I am a super successful millionaire real estate investor." The first thing you wake up in the morning is to read this affirmation out loud, and then look at your vision board and imagine all the achievements that you will accomplish soon. If you follow through and do this, you will have more motivation and energy to take action throughout the day. Try out and see how powerful it is.
2. Create deadlinesThis is another powerful technique that can help us beat procrastination. Every one of your tasks, your goals, and your targets must come with a deadline. Without a deadline, your goal will be just a wish, because you do not know when you should accomplish it. Do you know that when you know when to get things done, you will automatically program it into your subconscious mind, and hence, work on it before the deadline?
Successful people always know by when they want to accomplish what they want. Not only they tell themselves internally, but they also create the public commitment by telling people who are closed to them. Imagine that if you tell all your close friends about what you want to accomplish by the end of this year, what would you feel? You will feel more accountable and more serious about getting it done.
3. Work in a clean environmentYou cannot think if you are working in a messy environment. What you can do is to clean up your working environment so that you can think clearly and get more things done. Many people actually underestimate this effective technique. Do you know that Steve Jobs actually practice this strategy during his journey to success?
Living in a messy environment will create stress; you must get rid of clutter so that you can function at your best to get things done. The more messy your working or living environment, the more you tend to procrastinate.

The video above shows Robin Sharma, one of the personal improvement gurus, shares his strategies on how he beat procrastination.
According to Robin, he uses 5 techniques to handle procrastination and they are...
1. Magnificent Obsession Statement & Dream Collage
For instance, you can use affirmation and vision board to help you overcome procrastination. For example, your magnificent obsession statement or affirmation can be something like, "I'm a millionaire real estate investor", "I'm a savvy businessman", or "I'm a number one best-selling author". You can create your own personalized affirmation and use it everyday.
Next, comes the vision board or the dream collage. What you can do is to cut out pictures from books or magazine, and paste them into your success journal. Of course, choose the things that you want and cut it out and paste it there. For instance, you can look for pictures of luxury car that you always wanted, the travel location that you desire to go and so on.
The key here is that our mind thinks in pictures. That is why you have to use pictures to program what you want into your subconscious mind.
2. The 30 Day Procrastination Diet
What you can do here to beat procrastination is to plan for 30 days and do something that you always put off. For example, if you resist jogging, choose a day to go for jogging. If you resist writing an article, choose a day to do that. For straight 30 days, you choose to do at least 1 task that you always procrastinate and resist doing.
This is to strengthen your will power so that you will build a stronger will power that you won't procrastinate. The more you train your mental muscle, the more powerful it will become. And if you have a strong will power to do what you always wanted, you can then control your life and move in the right direction that you wanted.
3. The Power Of Exercise
Robin Sharma use the 'second wind workout' technique to boost his productivity during the day. What you can do here is to workout in the morning, and then after that, workout again during 5pm for 30 minutes. This is because after you workout, you will feel more refreshed and literally increase your energy.
That is why Robin suggests that we exercise twice a day. Once in the morning after we wake up, and another time again around 4-6pm so that we can keep our brain recharge and have a fresher mind to do what we suppose to do for the other half of the day.
4. Create Distraction Free Environment
If you want to be productive, you have to create the distraction free environment. If your desk is in a mess, do you think you will feel like working on that desk? Studies show that distraction will encourage procrastination and decrease productivity.
Go through the video and you will understand how successful people such as Steve Jobs used this technique to build his billion-dollar business empire.
5. Release Your Self-Sabotage
You have been influenced by everyone around you that you can't do this or you can't do that. That is why you procrastinate on your dreams, the goals you want to achieve and the life you desire to live. Below is another great video that clearly explains this situation. So get ready to release your self-sabotage and it is time to be great...
