The Effects of Procrastination
Just what is procrastination? It is habit of putting things off until last possible minute. Procrastination in and of itself is not a problem - consequences of procrastination, however, can be devastating.
If you are a procrastinator, you have likely:
- Missed opportunities
- Worked late hours at work trying to get finished at last moment
- Felt completely stressed out
- Been overwhelmed
- Suffered feelings of guilt and resentment
Procrastination is a killer - a killer of dreams, ambitions, and achievement.

Hypnosis is not some hocus pocus form of psychotherapy - it is simply a natural occurring state of mind that bypasses conscious part of mind. When conscious is bypassed, we don't pass judgment on what is being suggested.

- When an expert tells you something and you don't question validity of that statement
- Children do it when they are pretending.
By going around judgment portion of mind, suggestions can be put into your subconscious and get you to head towards a particular goal - just way advertisers propel you towards their product.
