Wellness + Wisdom | Episode 575

What is procrastination driven by? Is it laziness or fear?

Rob Dial | LEVEL UP: How To Stop Procrastinating + Create Your Dream Life

Rob Dial, joins Josh Trent on the Wellness + Wisdom podcast, episode 575, to teach you why you need to seek inspiration over motivation to get things done, how to stop procrastinating, why it's important to follow what gives you energy, and why every day should be a good day to die.

 “Motivation is like a spark on a fire. Drive and inspiration are the big old wood that's dried out that burns all night long. The difference is that you can see someone motivated to try to change their life. But when you see someone who's inspired or driven, it's in their eyes and you can get that sense that they're not stopping. They will either do it or they'll die trying.”Rob Dial

Power Quotes From The Show

The Universe Gives You Energy

“When you do something that is out of alignment with the universe, you have to provide your energy to do so. But when you do something that is in alignment with the universe, the universe will give you the energy.”Rob Dial

Ask Yourself WHY?

“Most people don't take a step back and ask themselves “Why do I want this thing? Do I just want it to make money?” If you just want it to make money, you could do that if you want. But if you want it because you want to serve others, which is a much easier way to drive yourself to get stuff done and take action – if you're trying to do it for other people. When it's self-serving, it will last a little while but eventually the spark will die.”Rob Dial

Bodily Programming Based on Our Past

“You'll feel something before you think it. Our body is programmed based off of everything that has happened to us in the past. Normally, what happens is that you feel something first and then your brain tries to catch up. You usually feel fear before you notice the thought. There's an unconscious thought that comes first, then the body responds to it, then the conscious mind notices it.”Rob Dial

Identity + Actions + Results

“Identity goes into actions, actions go into results, results go back into identity. You have to question who is it that you are. You take either an action that's going to get you towards where you want to go or you're going to get your action to take you further away from where you want to go. And that's going to feed back into your identity.”Rob Dial
