Holding Back.

Do you question whether you are holding yourself back in your life?

If you are asking yourself this on a regular basis, then chances are pretty clear that you are.

Remind yourself that now is always the right time, the perfect time to step out of procrastination and into the life that you want. Why? Because, your life is now — not later.

Many people believe that they have to wait for the right time to start, but the truth is that there is always some underlying fear holding them back. If you find yourself waiting for the fear to go away – chances are, you’ll be waiting a long time. Instead, get curious and honest about what fears you may have. Understanding the reasons why you are holding yourself back will empower you, enable you to end it, and let you get back on track.

You can also turn this holding back & procrastination cycle around by identifying your top priorities. Start this week. What matters most to you and why? Then begin to take small steps towards actualizing those priorities. Many small steps can create the greatest impact of change. An just because you don’t know exactly how to start or what to do isn’t the problem. The absence of priorities combined with fear is the problem.  Taking small steps will help you create a path forward. It will allow you to step through your fear and replace procrastination with action.

I cannot stress enough the importance of getting a clear picture of your top priorities and aligning your energy and actions with them. The truth is that you have everything you need to get your life moving forward. Take action and be productive, rather than holding back and waiting.

When I coach clients and help them to reconnect with their true desires, they can instantly get clarity, define their priorities, and move right out of procrastination. When you truly align with what you desire you will be amazed at how resourceful you become.

Consider the reasons holding you back from what you truly want. Ask yourself: Is it fear? Are you happy with your surroundings? Is it your attitude? Are you letting your mood rule your life? Do you know what your priorities are? Once you have pinpointed the problem and gotten clear about what matters most to you, you can move onto creating the solution.
