Today, i was with who was whining to me saying, 'You know Ron. I've bought tons of products, know virtually all i need to do, my problem is, I don't just do it!'
'Hell', i thought. 'I once had this problem'.
So i gave him some advice telling him what i did to overcome this problem.
As i was talking to him, i suddenly thought of the warrior forum. Why, i don't share this with my friends on the WF, i said to myself.
Alright here goes...
Now i don't care how much of a procrastinator you are. Use this 'trick' and you'll see yourself getting off your doofus to do something worthwhile.
Here it is...
In the past, each time I plan to make some money, i would go through about 30% of the materials i've got on my hard drive. Then come up with a product idea.
I'd flesh out the idea and then... do nothing!
Now can you believe it? I would prepare and just at the point of putting the engine in motion, I'd step on the brakes! sounds odd, but i bet it happens to a lot of folks too.
It worried me a lot and i daily tried out different techniques to overcome this problem, but nothing worked.
One day it came to me like an 'eureka' moment.
Here's what happened...
I had researching on an information product i wanted to sell to folks in my country. (If you're not creating your own products yet, you're missing out on a boatload of money)
Then the all familiar paralysis came ...
For days, i struggled to create the product but kept pushing it off and back.
Then i had my 'aha!' moment.
'Why not write the salescopy and place the advertisement in the newspapers?', i asked myself.
So i did a mini-advert to drive visitors to my website and called up the newspaper and then went ahead to send in the advert material and pay the rates. I was told the advert would run the next Monday (this was a Tuesday)
Now guess what happened?
I was forced to create the product and write a really good salesletter promoting it!
I was now under obligation to create the product. Now there was no question of procrastination. I had to produce because next Monday, visitors would begin visiting the website and sales would begin to come in!
Now how's that for a kick in the butt?
Since i discovered this strategy which i call 'The Put Yourself Under Pressure To Perform' tactic, I have literally used it anytime i find myself trying to put off something.
All i do is do something else that forces me to do what i really want to do.
Like if i wanted to plant and grow a really beautiful garden and was putting it off, I'd go online, and order the seeds, the beds and the tools, paying a hefty price.
Now since I hate losing money and the postman has delivered a large consignment of material, I've got no choice but to grow the damn garden.
You can use this same tactic in your own life and I'll bet you'll begin to see dramatically different results.
Try it out and see.
I hope I've helped you out here by contributing something worthwhile. Be good and God bless.
