For your consideration….

We have had many messages on procrastination. Today’s message addresses what it does to our soul. Specifically our message tells us that “procrastination chips away at our soul.”

When we procrastinate slowly but surely, we let more doubt slip in. We doubt our ability. Slowly but surely we let judgment slip in. The longer we procrastinate the less we think of ourselves. The longer we procrastinate, the more we procrastinate. We let our ego talk us out of tackling a problem or task and the voice of our soul becomes quieter and harder to hear.

The voice of our soul is our loudest cheerleader. It is the voice that reminds us we can, we shall and we will.

We all have things we rather not do for any number of reasons. Today we are asked to remember that nothing is put before us that we can not handle. Our Guidance is always with us 24/7. We simply need to call on it. Additionally, we are asked to not focus on the why we want to procrastinate. Instead, we are asked to focus on how it feels when we get something done that we didn’t want to do. We are asked to think about how it will feel to have accomplished the task and how good it feels to no longer have it on our plate.

In essence we are asked to change our focus from the negative to the positive. I love this Victor Kiam quote, “Procrastination is opportunity’s assassin.”

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Take a breath, make a decision and just do it. Ge the task done.
