Tapping Script for Overcoming Procrastination

MORE SCRIPTS
procrastination and urgency concept, cub

Oh, procrastination, that mighty foe, that ruthless obstacle to achievement. It can strike at any time, and stop our progress toward a goal in its tracks.

 

While studies show that for some (mainly those who work best under pressure), procrastination is an effective strategy for getting things done, for most of us, it’s a real detriment to our productivity.

 

Why do we do it? You want to do something, you know you need to do it in order to make progress toward a goal, but you just.can’t.seem.to.get.started.

Or, just as vexing, you make a great start with something, but then, for some reason, you just.can't.seem.to.get.it.finished.

 

Here just some of the many reasons why people procrastinate:

 

  • Not wanting to do an unpleasant task

  • Avoiding a difficult task

  • Habit 

  • Fear of failure

  • Fear of success

  • Overwhelm

 

Tapping to the rescue! This script addresses each of the above issues, as well as some others.

 

So read through the statements, pick the ones that resonate, give them each a number on the intensity scale of 0 to 10, and tap yourself free!

 

“Procrastination is the thief of time.

Collar him!” ~ Charles Dickens

 

 

HOW TO USE THIS SCRIPT

As with all of my tapping scripts, these statements can be used as is, or modified in any way that makes them resonate more fully with your experience. Some of them will fit for you, and some will not. Just use the ones that fit your experience and have an emotional charge.

 

You may notice that when you start tapping on these statements, thoughts and feelings will arise that you can then turn into new tapping statements, which will then give rise to still more thoughts and feelings, which you can use to create additional tapping statements, and so on. I call this following the thread, and it’s a very efficient way to heal and release a lot of painful feelings in a short amount of time.

PLEASE NOTE

When doing EFT/tapping on your own, if you get stuck, aren't getting the results you want, or would simply like to have the support and guidance of an experienced professional, I recommend working with an EFT practitioner.

 

If you decide that this is the best course of action for you, and you would like to work with me, you can schedule a session here. If you feel that another EFT practitioner would be a better fit for you, click here to access a directory of practitioners.
