Speed up from slowness. Stop being pokey, today. If others always seem to finish before you do, there's a reason why that keeps happening. This course guides you through eliminating the root cause of that problem. This self-paced course requires no textbook or instructor.
When you just can't seem to be as fast as other people, something is wrong. Very wrong. The good news is it doesn't have to stay that way.While taking too long to complete a task or even get ready to go somewhere may feel like it's sparing you pain, the reality is such behaviors create more of the very problems that caused you to be slow or pokey in the first place.
Have you noticed that, when you occasionally move faster than normal (for example, when forced to "move your butt" by someone in authority), you feel awkward or uncomfortable? Perhaps you even flush hot and begin to expire, while your heart races. Those are signs of stress. And you have that stress because of subconscious expectations that produce a self-fulfilling prophecy of negative consequences--such as fear, uncertainty, and doubt.
You have adapted to this by relying on delaying behaviors. Paradoxically, you try to handle a lack of control over events by letting those events control you. This simply does not work.
This condition of relying on delaying behaviors goes by several names, none of which are complimentary. And it never makes your life better. It can make your life much less pleasant.
It's a maladaptive, self-defeating coping mechanism (behavior). The paradox here is more you engage in slowness to exert your influence on the world, the less influence you will have.
People suffering from this condition are convinced that they are successfully managing things when the opposite is actually true. The compulsively slow person isn't avoiding problems, but is instead letting those problems gather strength and be far more difficult to handle. And, all too often, creating even more problems.
But it's not just the outward manifestations of this particular issue that cause problems for you. Because the physical manifestation arises from an inner emotional problem, your compulsion exerts itself in subtle (and not so subtle) ways in your relationships. This undermines marriages, friendships, and careers in a multitude of ways. None of which you would suffer, if you overcame this compulsion.
Yet, you keep doing it. Why? This course will show you how to discover the answer. Your compulsion is a response, and if you understand how to uncover what's driving that response you can cure the compulsion.
Don't be mired in pokiness. We'll show you how to really take off!
Estimated completion time for the Behavior: Speeding up from Slowness course: 15 one-hour sessions.

You need to overcome the consequences of this self-defeating behavior. This Behavior: Speeding up from Slowness will help you do exactly that.
What sort of consequences are we talking about? They may include:
People don't like you. If you feel isolated or disrespected, your self-defeating behavior is why.
You don't like yourself, because of your self-defeating behavior.
Your defense mechanism is to engage in your self-defeating behavior. This sets up a self-sustaining vicious cycle, in which you are currently trapped (this course teaches you how to use an appropriate response and break the cycle).
The dynamic of many relationships with others is that of a contest rather than one of cooperation. This means others fight you, one way or another.
Your response of your self-defeating behavior merely fuels this, creating a self-sustaining vicious cycle.
People often avoid any real discussion with you (on specific topics that trigger your self-defeating behavior), because they already know how it will go.
Others may give in to avoid triggering your self-defeating behavior, but later they find ways to disagree silently and/or undermine you (the are exhibiting passive-aggressive behavior, which is self-defeating for them).
You may have the appearance of "winning" or getting your way, but you actually lose it in terms of eventual outcome.
People who interact with you feel almost obligated to work against you. And they may not even realize it consciously. Your self-defeating behavior has tapped a primal self-defense mechanism in them.
Folks who could volunteer to help you, don't.
Your self-defeating behavior turns them off or you send involuntarily negative signals because you are relying on your ineffective self-defeating behavior instead of using effective coping skills. This course will show you how to use those skills.
How It Works
This Behavior: Speeding up from Slowness course follows the same protocol used in short-term professional psychotherapy. The notable exception is this course is self-treatment. Whereas you could expect 4 or 5 one-hour sessions with a psychotherapist, the self-treatment approach will take more time and require more self-initiative. But, you won't be paying $200 per hour for five hours this way, either.
As with any form of psychotherapy, your journey along the healing path may not end with this course. However, note these two facts about this kind of treatment:
The success rate is very high, for people who make an honest effort to work through the therapy.
The therapy lays the groundwork for a stronger method of treatment, if needed.
This Behavior: Speeding up from Slowness course is one of a series developed by Dr. Jay Prince, licensed psychotherapist. The series is licensed exclusively to Mindconnection. During his lifetime, Dr. Prince treated many patients who needed to overcome a problem through psychotherapy. Dr. Prince also had several corporate clients, who came to him for solving dysfunctional situations within their companies.
Dr. Jay Prince, the developer of our behavior courses, passed away in 2001. This was a rapid cancer that claimed him well before old age.
Dr. Prince changed the lives of many of our customers, giving them new direction and new hope. In his private practice, Dr. Prince helped individuals overcome problems that kept them from leading the fulfilling lives they deserved. He also consulted to corporations, helping them to develop more humane, rewarding, and productive workplaces.
Working with Dr. Prince was a pleasure, knowing him was an honor. He wanted his courses priced so the average person could easily buy one and begin the journey to recovery. His portion of the proceeds now go to his widow and children.
Going this route--the self-treatment via Dr. Prince's course--will save you money for three reasons:
You pay a one-time fee for the Behavior: Speeding up from Slowness course, rather than $200 an hour for 4 to 6 hours
If this therapy solves your problem, that's your total cost.
If short-term therapy can't solve your problem, you have determined that without spending several hundred dollars..
It's been helpful, but some of the exercises involve having another person help and I didn't want to get someone else involved. This problem has been embarrassing for me, I just wanted to find some things I could work on by myself. I have improved quite a bit, and my boss seems to have noticed so I got my money's worth and then some especially in this economy.
