Overcoming Procrastination: A Deeper Dive into Emotions and Hypnosis

In our everyday hustle, procrastination emerges not just as a thief of time but as a complex interplay of emotions and responses deeply embedded within us. Often misunderstood as mere laziness or lack of motivation, procrastination can indeed stem from something much more profound—our emotions. Today, let's unravel the layers of procrastination, exploring its roots and discovering how hypnosis can serve as a powerful tool in overcoming this pervasive challenge.

The Real Cause of Procrastination

Procrastination isn't just about wasting time. It's more about how we feel. Some people think it's just laziness or not wanting to work. But it's often about our emotions. Let's look into why we procrastinate and how hypnosis can help us beat it.

What is Procrastination?

Procrastination is when we delay tasks. Sometimes, it's because we're trying to avoid feeling bad from past events. Other times, we just prefer to do things that make us happy right now. It's important to know the difference to deal with procrastination the right way.

Why We Procrastinate: It's About Feelings

Our feelings, like worry or fear, are built into us. They used to help people survive dangers, like wild animals. Even though the dangers have changed, we still react in similar ways. These feelings can lead us to procrastinate. Knowing how our feelings affect us helps us understand why we act the way we do.

When Procrastination is More Than Just Delaying

Thinking of procrastination only as a way to avoid bad memories simplifies things too much. Sometimes, it's about seeking comfort. It's important to know when procrastination is more about our feelings and when it's just a habit.

Feelings vs. Logic

It's tough to beat procrastination because our feelings often overpower our logical thinking. Even if we know what we should do, our emotions might make us do something else. This shows how strong our feelings are and why it's hard to just use logic to stop procrastinating.

How Hypnosis Helps

Hear more about me on the Work Smart Hypnosis Podcast with Jason Linett

I recently had the honor of being a guest on the Work Smart Hypnosis Podcast with Jason Linett where I got to share some of my story about how I became a hypnotist, my perspectives on hypnotic change work and why I believe that difficult situations we find ourselves in aren't problems but opportunities for change, growth, and personal transformation.


My Story


In the beginning

For far too long, I had a bad case of the "sposetas." I was living my life based on what I thought I was "sposeta" do, and not living for myself. When there is a conflict between the emotional and logical mind, the emotional mind will always win. This is when I first started struggling with anxiety - because I wasn't living my life in a way that was authentic to myself. So I changed, and I thought I had those old anxiety issues under control until...


And then..

In 2014, I had Bell's palsy, and things never went back to normal. I had basically given up on life. My anxiety went through the roof and I would have constant panic attacks any time I went out in public, so I quit going out. I barely ever saw my friends, became agoraphobic, and gained a ton of weight. Which of course made everything much worse! I didn’t just lose all hope - I lost myself.


My Breakthrough

I knew that wasn't who I was, and eventually enough was enough. I was determined to take back control of my life, and no longer be a prisoner of anxiety. That is how I discovered hypnosis. Thanks to hypnosis, I was able to take back control of my life and not only regain my confidence - but dramatically increase it. Now, the very idea of having a panic attack is as foreign to me as it was before I ever even heard of the term let alone experienced one.


Why I Do What I Do

I became a hypnotist because nobody should have to go through what I did on my journey. And if there is a silver lining to it then that is I can use the wisdom I gained to give others the tools they need to keep growing and succeeding - so I can help others free themselves from whatever old stories they've been telling themselves that kept them stuck. Nobody should have to go through what I did and I want the world to know that nobody has to.


We are all not that different

Use this section to address concerns someone might have about YOU - which they think makes you unique, special, or have super powers? Explain to them that you are just a person. You are human just like them and if YOU can do it, so can they. It doesn't take magic or mystical wisdom to achieve success and victory.

Are you ready to unlock your full potential?
