Hello, I'm Chotrain and I'm a Procrastinator

Hello all, I'm Chotrain and I'm a Procrastinator! I'm a male and close to my mid 40's. I live in a South Eastern City in the USA by way of New York City. I've been a procrastinator as long as I can remember. I came from a very rough town and I played the part of a strong, very vocal individual.  But deep down inside I was very scared and afraid of challenging situations. For some reason, I never had the winner instinct and never truly believed in myself.  I feel that I've made it thus far with a good personality and being in the right place at the right time. Even my present job, which is in a mid management position, I beat out many individuals across the states.  I lost confidence while dealing with strong personalities and allowed myself to be reassigned to a less challenging position. A lot of my flaws have stemmed from procrastination.  My finances are all over the place. I have more expenses than I have income and I just go into shutdown mode when it comes to tackling paying these bills and developing a plan and budget. I get depressed and I can just lay around on my off days and eat sweets and watch TV.  I try to beat that voice in my head that tells me "naw man, do it later, or I'm tired." I'm too lazy to get up and say my prayers to this great power source in the morning. I feel that I'm at my breaking point. I'm first admitting to my self that I'm a Procrastinating Junkie.  I've procrastinated to this point but I had the energy to research and find this group, join, and sit down to type out this introduction. I thank my higher power for allowing me to share and I'm hoping that I will receive the necessary motivation and insight to tackle this problem which is depriving me of a life that I'm sure exist.Thanks in advance for listening and sharing. Chotrain-




thanks for introducing chotrain

I really related to this comment: "...I beat out many individuals across the states.  I lost confidence while dealing with strong personalities and allowed myself to be reassigned to a less challenging position."  I have a similar history of snatching defeat from the jaws of success. The good news is that by developing a regular habit of checking in here, and applying the 12 Steps and the PA Tools, I have seen real progress in my ability to live up to my reputation. Welcome; keep coming back!
