Introduction to personal goals for procrastinators
Personal goals for procrastinators is the perfect post for this time of year.
Are you a procrastinator but are trying to do better? The beginning of the year is the perfect time for procrastinators to set personal goals to help them reach their plans at the end of the year.
If you think of yourself as a serial procrastinator, you first need to change your thinking habits. When you change the way you think, the things you think about will change.
You cannot change your life with old mindsets. Get rid of the mindset that no longer serves you and adopts a new mindset that will help you win.
I use to think I was a procrastinator, and maybe I was, but I used it as a crutch to not reach my goals and follow my dreams. Instead of getting rid of that mindset, I was enabling it. And that didn’t help me get anywhere.
Once I became aware of my thoughts and how they were not serving me, I was able to change my life.
Of course, procrastination will still try to sneak up on me every once in a while, But now I am more intelligent and know how to deal with it effectively.
Personal goals for procrastinators for a better you this year

Set habits every day that helps you work towards your goals. It should come automatically. Something you don’t even think about, you just do it.
Systems also don’t seem as scary as the big goals we set. That is why most people who have systems in place reach their goals faster than those who only set goals.
You don’t get super overwhelmed with systems. It becomes fun doing something small every day but you know that it leads you to your big goal.
2. Set goals
You have to set goals. Nothing works without a goal in mind. You have to know what you want and where you are going. Otherwise, how are you going to know when you get somewhere that you’ve arrived? Right?
Set goals. Long-term goals and short-term goals. It’s very important to know what you want. So, find out what you want. What do you really truly want?
Have an honest conversation with yourself. Sometimes we just think we want something. But in reality, we just want it because society told us to want it.
No more of that. Think for yourself. What do You want? And when you find out go after it with everything you got.

When you envision your life, who are you? Who do you want to be 5 or 10 years from now? Visualize that person. What do they do? What do they wear? Where do they live? What are they driving?
Think about everything you want your future self to have and be and work on becoming that version of yourself. Your future self.

You lose confidence in yourself when you don’t keep your commitments. It makes you become an unreliable person.
The more you keep your word the more confident and self-disciplined you become. It helps you to go for your goals and dreams as a stronger person.
Quitting won’t be an option because you are a person of your word and you said you would reach your goals, so quitting is not in you.

Because you are the one that has to make things happen for you. No one will come and just hand you your dreams and say well done. It’s up to you and you alone.

If you never see it, you will forget what it is you trying to accomplish in the first place. Out of sight out of mind.
The more you keep your vision before you the clearer it will become and you will draw it to you by manifesting it.

Fix your mindset first and all the other things will fall into place. Believe that you can change. It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve tried and failed. Believe now.
Decide that this is your year and that this year will be different. Inspire yourself. Change your image of yourself and become a warrior. Become the person you’ve always dreamed of being.
