Fear of Failure!

Filed under: Productivity — Tags: , , , , , — inspiredhoney @ 6:29 am

One of the biggest reasons for not starting an organising project, is fear of failure. You may feel that since you haven’t been able to get organised for so many years, that it will be impossible for you to get organised now.

Or, you may feel that even if you do manage to get it organised, you may not be able to maintain it. You’ve failed in the past so it is likely to happen again.

First, a positive attitude is essential to getting and staying organised. Remember what Ford said about attitude (yes, THE FORD Motor Car Company founder). “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – it makes no difference – you are right either way.” Believe in yourself. You can do it. But you have to START.

Remember – any task or project you progress on, no matter how little the progression, is a success. Enjoy your successes and reward yourself for them. Use gold stars on your To Do Lists. Use groovy coloured pens to tick off what you have achieved. (Hell, throw caution to the wind and try your kids’ crayons!). We take ourselves far too seriously!

It WILL make a difference. Everything makes a difference to your subconscious mind. never underestimate it!
