Procrastination: Donald

I've had problems with procrastination and study skills all my life. I remember back in school never wanting to do things until the last minute and always working under pressure. I waited until the morning that the assignment was due to get it done. I always seemed to pull the rabbit out of the hat and did what I needed to do to meet the minimum requirements, but I've always felt that didn't reach the potential that I could have. There were limits to what I could achieve based on how much I could study and remember. Looking back, I feel like it was a loss

I've tried convincing myself over the years that these things would go away and I found that they didn't. I'd be good for a couple of weeks and then revert back to the old behaviors and make excuses for my mistakes. I felt that if I didn't take care of this, my life was going to be a train wreck; it was going to be ugly. I didn't know how things were going to play out and I was worried.

The procrastination was really limiting my ability to achieve goals and learn skills. I wasn't absorbing study materials as well as I could and found that I would just flip through the reading instead of taking the time to focus and pay attention to a book. I was putting things off and telling myself that I would get it done, but I never did. I was stagnant and sitting still and just wishing I could fix these things, that made me feel really restricted in what I could do.

I really had the desire to make some changes, I looked at my options and hypnosis seemed like a good choice. I heard about A New Day Hypnosis when I did an internet search. I saw the listing on Citysearch and I liked the website, so I decided to call. At first, I thought it was going to be difficult because I've been a procrastinator and a pack rat for so many years, but I started to notice results within a couple of days.

I found myself not being able to walk away from things and not being able to stop until the job was complete and everything was tidied up and put away. I've never stuck been able to stick with organization for this long. I used to get through one bookcase and be done, but now it's amazing to me that I'm able to look at my task list every morning when I brush my teeth and complete everything on it.

These changes are working in all areas of my life and I'm a much more positive person now. I don't find myself worrying about things anymore and I'm a lot more patient with my kids. My wife can't believe all the trash that I'm throwing away. I'm literally taking a Hefty bag of trash out every day. I'm getting started on things that I've had in my head to get done for a long time. Time constraints aren't a problem for me anymore because I'm not putting off my responsibilities. I'm figuring out how much I can get done today and there isn't as much to do tomorrow.

I used to believe that I couldn't remember things and now I don't have anxiety about studying anymore. I'm remembering everything that I study and it's working well. I feel like I can meet the challenge and I look forward to tests.

It has been a great experience for me and I'm looking forward to where I'm going. I look back and don't know how I lived before. All of these things put together brought me to a point in my life where I'm moving again. I'm able to step away from the busy day to day things and leave my phone in the car when I go to the library so that I can absorb much more information when I study. I've turned over a new leaf. I'm looking at everything with wide eyes of learning and feeling excited about it. Everything is better and that makes me feel more confident.

I'm ready to achieve the things that I've been working towards and I have a good positive outlook on my goals. With the organization and the focus everything is working together and I don't have to waste time trying to fix my mistakes.

I would recommend A New Day Hypnosis because there are so many things that can be fixed and adjusted. My best friend has seen that my outlook has changed and he wants to work on some things too, so I've recommended it wholeheartedly to him.

I know I'll stay on this path because it makes me feel good to reach my goals, stay focused with my studies, and keep my life organized. I've been thrilled that I've been able to meet these changes and I'm thankful that Laura has been so helpful and understanding. I'm not worried anymore because there are so many opportunities out there and the big picture is so much clearer and has gotten even bigger for me.
