Procrastination: Is it fear or intuition?
How do you tell the difference between procrastination driven by fear or intuition? How do you know when it’s time to walk away and when you should push through?
Sometimes, procrastination is fear in disguise, something we must push through.
While oftentimes, procrastination is actually a communication from our own core/intuition that we are barking up the wrong tree.
Pushing against procrastination that comes from your core will only lead you further astray.
Being able to discern the difference between fear and misalignment is key.
So how can you tell the difference?
A Litmus Test for Procrastination
An easy litmus test I use is I ask myself the question “would doing this thing/task energise me or deplete me of energy?” In other words, would having done the thing that needs doing enhance my resonance or diminish it?
If the latter, I don’t touch it.
If the former (enhance energy) I push through.
A great analogy for this is exercise: a lot of the times we may procrastinate exercise but we know that exercising ENHANCES our vibration, we come out a new person.
On the other hand, a lot of the things on your to-do list are those things that would deplete you of energy and are actually leading you AWAY from your path of least resistance.
For example, when I first launched the Flow Protocols I believed that high ticket offers needed to be sold through a sales team. This belief mostly existed because of what mentors had told me and my previous experience selling high ticket. So initially I forced myself to do sales calls and I even started to go about building a sales team, but I kept procrastinating and dreading the whole thing. Once I heeded the signs, I decided to do things differently. I’ve since grown Flow Protocols into a seven figure business, most of the revenues come from high ticket offers, and – with the exception of the few sales calls at the beginning – this revenue came through without sales calls. Which is FAR more aligned to what I ultimately desired.
