EFT for Procrastination, Perfectionism, Fear of Failure, and the Need for Love and Approval

What's holding you back from fulfilling your dreams?

In this post, I’ll show you how to let go of negative thoughts and feelings with EFT.  I’ll give you some ideas for how to use this technique to let go of procrastination, perfectionism, fear failure, and the need for love and approval of others. 

In several posts I wrote recently, I talked about how procrastination is generally a mask for an underlying perfectionism.  Perfectionism is an underlying mask for a fear of failure.  And a fear of failure is masking a need for approval and love of others which we think that we need in order to feel happy and worthwhile as a human being. 

The Essential Problem

When it comes down to it, this belief that the approval and love of others will bring us happiness reveals that we are focused in our minds, that we are not connected to the unconditional source of well-being within us.  And that’s the essence of the issue.  

What to Do about It

In future blog posts, I will be covering a lot of different techniques that I have found to be helpful for letting go of issues like these, but today I’m going to be talking about using EFT to help you release these issues and return to your natural state of unconditional well-being.  

How to Let Go of These Negative Thought Patterns with EFT

EFT is a powerful and easy-to-use tool to let go of negative beliefs and feelings.  Here are the basics of how to do it; I’ll go into more details below.  All you need to do is simply tap on the nine key acupressure points of EFT as you think about any issue that is dominant in your mind at the moment.  Follow where your mind takes you.  You can use my How to Do EFT Video to guide you if you like.  

As you tap on any issue and clear it, it is likely that new layers and aspects will emerge that point you deeper into the negative beliefs, feelings, and painful past memories for you to release.  As you do, you will be releasing old habitual patterns of conditional thinking that you have probably lived with for a long time.  Once you let go of these conditions that you are placing on your well-being through EFT, you will naturally begin to feel that wonderful experience of well-being that’s always available to you beneath your negative thoughts. 

Some Ideas to Tap on to Let Go of These Issues

I’m going to make some videos to help walk you through using EFT to let go of procrastination, perfectionism, fear of failure, and the need for love and approval.  Look for those in future blog posts or on my YouTube channel.  Until then, here are some ideas for topics that you could tap on to let go of these issues: 

  • Not wanting to do this thing.
  • Procrastinating on the next step.
  • Feeling like I need to be perfect.
  • Fear of failure.
  • Fear of rejection and ridicule.
  • Worry about what other people think of me and what I do.
  • Feeling like I’m not lovable and not worthy unless I am perfect.
  • And any other conditional thoughts or painful memories that emerge from your mind as you go through the process.

I think that gives you a general idea in a place to start for your own tapping.  As you tap away these issues, you’ll be tapping into your unconditional well-being.  

So that’s enough for now.  As I said, in future posts, I will go into other effective ways I’ve found to help us to come back to the natural state of unconditional well-being within us.  Look for those new videos soon, too.
