Do you procrastinate about things and just can’t get started?

This is something that affects so many of us but, why?

According to this amazing woman, Dr Libby Weaver, for those women who have never heard her speak or read her books, you are missing out!

“It is known in psychology that dysfunctional behaviour is a cause from unmet emotional needs in our lives. These unmet needs can happen when we are as young as small children resulting in stealing, drugs, eating disorders, lying, binge drinking, shutting down emotionally, feeling victimized and acting out in a desperate attempt to fill this unmet emotional need.” – Dr Libby Weaver

So, by the time we grow up to be adults we have mastered the art of covering up a lot of these unmet needs going from one unsuccessful experience to another trying to find happiness and wondering why we never do. We go around blaming everyone and everything else, when it’s an emotional need deep inside that requires letting go of so we can then move to living a life of happiness. Living from a place of within not from a place of without. 

I believe this is why we procrastinate, we are simply not happy and the fear of going to the place to deal with these unmet needs are bigger than wanting to make the change to do something about it.

Over time these unmet needs are the causes of our repeated habits and behaviours and have become so etched into our everyday lifestyle we don’t know how to live any different, until one day comes a scare that wakes us up like someone has turned the lights on. This life changing moment could be a health scare, a relationship break-up, death of someone close or losing your job. Now the desire to change becomes bigger than the fear of dealing with your unmet needs.

When we acknowledge something needs to change and that you want to change it, is where we experience awareness and conviction. The healing and letting go process begins and then we can plan a direction to ‘start doing’ the things in our lives.

You may be able to walk this road on your own or you may need someone to keep you accountable to be consistent implementing these changes.  It is a universal law when you work on the inside first the outside works itself out and we attract all we need in our lives with very little effort.
