In this article, I share powerful insights on how you can stop procrastinating and create the fulfilling work-life your dream of.
I am Emmanuel, a certified and professional coach helping individuals who suffer from procrastination gain the confidence they need to start their business or grow in their careers and create fulfillment in their work-life. I have already helped many people take the leap by sharing the same powerful tips I am about to share with you.
I know where you are at.
For as long as I can remember, I have always wondered how I could find true fulfillment in my professional life.

Maybe you feel you do not have enough money (if you dream of starting your business)…
or that you can’t take any risks because of some responsibilities you have…
or that you do not measure up against other people whose achievements seem out of this world...
or that staying in your current role is the rational thing to do and that those who go after more are just dreamers anyway...
Whatever the justification, even if apparently legitimate, if you procrastinate on your fulfillment, it means that most likely fear is holding you back at some level.
Now, regardless of where you are, the cause, or the intensity of your fear, you can overcome your procrastination.
The very first step to overcome your procrastination is to understand why you are procrastinating in the first place.
Your mind comports two parts: the conscious mind and the subconsc
