Procrastination happens to a lot of people, but if you're really bad about procrastinating, then you likely feel guilty whenever you do it.

If you want to know how to stop procrastinating, then one of the best ways to do it is by changing your mindset and trying to use the Law of Attraction and positive thinking to make procrastination a thing of the past.

Procrastination is defined as: "...the action of delaying or postponing something."

Do you ever feel like you have so many things you want to accomplish that you can’t ever seem to get them done, or even start doing them? How does that make you feel?

Does it make you feel like you're lazy? Do you get frustrated with yourself? Do you feel like a failure?

Is that how you want to feel? Or do you want to know how to overcome procrastination?

In my experience, I found that even when I felt like I was procrastinating, eventually everything still got done. Even if it didn’t get done, I realized it all worked out better than I ever expected it to.

I often wondered what was making me feel so bad.

As I began learning more about the Law of Attraction and how “like attracts like,” it dawned on me that my thoughts could be attracting the way I was feeling. When I started consciously watching my thoughts, I decided to try to think about procrastination in a more positive way.

I began to realize that maybe it was just a way to delay what wasn’t meant to happen at that time or at all. Knowing that made me feel a lot better and I began to be easier on myself whenever I felt like I was procrastinating. It even felt better to think about it as perfect timing instead of procrastination.

When I began to relax about getting it all done, new resources and people became available that made everything so much easier and faster to accomplish.
