Are you one of those people that “should” all over yourself?
You know …
“I should do this” or “I should do that”.
And then you feel bad when you don’t do it and that task that you have been meaning to do has been pushed off AGAIN!
I know that you know this feeling. I sure do! Everyone has at least a few “shoulds” hanging around.
A “should” is usually something that you procrastinate. Why?
Because you really don’t have any motivation to do it.
It doesn’t light you up (at least it doesn’t right at this point in time).
It doesn’t have a positive enough energy attached to it.
It either comes from someone else’s agenda.
Or it comes from what society believes you “should” do.
Or (and this one is a big reason) … it is something that you haven’t attached a big enough WHY to that will make you motivated to do it!
From the Law of Attraction standpoint, you will get more accomplished when your vibe is high and you are feeling good. But having a list of “shoulds” doesn’t feel good, does it? It feels heavy, like you are burdened with tasks that you don’t look forward to.
Your job, from a vibrational standpoint, is to either LET GO of the need to have this “should” completed OR to tap into that feeling of why you REALLY want to accomplish it. How will it make you FEEL when it is complete? What will open up for you when you do get this done? Can you see that if you take a little time to imagine in your mind having that task complete and if it feels really good to even think about it finally being done, how that will impact your level of productivity?
Yes .. you have to have a big enough WHY or you will just keep on putting it off.
And if it is a “should” because someone else wants you to get it done, but doing it will bring you NO joy whatsoever, then don’t do it – let it go!
And here’s another cool Law of Attraction tip, if you just LET GO of the need to do it, releasing all that “have to” energy (which feels heavy), just the lighter energy that you feel by letting go of the need will make space for an unusual burst of energy that will feel like it suddenly comes over you and within a couple of hours you can have that task done easy breezy lemon squeezy!
Create action steps that come from that heart-centered energy, where there is pure joy associated with the end result of that action step and you will be well on your way to leaving that procrastinator behind you!
