It is terrific to know that you can motivate yourself to stop procrastination. Everyone knows what procrastination means. After all, almost every school child has been taught not to put off until tomorrow things that can be done today. In addition, almost everyone has procrastinated at least once in life. For some people, procrastination is debilitating and people who suffer from it feel overwhelmed and almost hopeless. Those people should stand strong and be encouraged. Almost every person can win the battle against procrastination. The reason almost every person can win the battle against procrastination is because a great weapon is to motivate one’s self. Sometimes, there is no one around to pat you on the back when you have done a great job. At those times you must pat yourself on the back. Similarly, sometimes when you have been procrastinating and no one has been able to help you stop, you must motivate yourself. Friends and family members get busy. Self help books get lost. Smart phones get lost or have batteries that die. The one thing you can guarantee you will always have with you and will always be available is your own self.
