If you intend to win at life, you must learn to complete on what you say you are going to do. Nothing creates a self-sabotaging attitude like being incomplete with your promises; be they to yourself or to others. Soon you find yourself going through your days with a dull and unseeing stare.
When you do NOT spend your time completing your projects and goals, your mind fills up your time with tail-chasing drama that has you spinning in circles. Some folks think that tail-chasing drama is as good as it gets. They use this drama as an excuse NOT to finish what they promised they would do: “I don’t have time to finish; life demands too much of me.”
Why do so many folks procrastinate so often? Well, if they don’t complete on what they said they would do, no one can belittle them for failing, and they’d rather be criticized for procrastinating than be told they are too dumb to succeed. There is an erroneous presupposition with this kind of logic – they assume they don’t have what it takes.
Many intelligent students with inferiority complexes drop out of school because they fear they will fail, and would rather quit than be called dumb (which they’re not).
It is important to underline a fact here: the decision to quit or procrastinate indefinitely … guarantees failure. It’s limiting decisions of this nature that feed into false feelings of inferiority, which inevitably destroy all of your ideals from becoming real.
What to do to break the habit of procrastinating and quitting: Hold this as your foremost rule, “I will be loyal to my unlimited nature, no matter what the problem may be. I will not allow a blow to my false pride stop me.” Continually remind yourself that there is infinitely more to you than meets the eye and take your word seriously. You will be startled at what you find you can do.
