I wanted to get some feedback here.

I'm really keyed into a lot of the problems that cause guys to FAIL to execute, get things done on time, etc.

But  I'd love to hear some feedback so that I can design more content on the subject:  what are YOUR main challenges that cause you to fuck up?

Lack of motivation or inspiration?

Distraction from the internet or TV or smart phone?  Porn?

Have you become softer and less focused as your life has progressed?

What STOPS you from achieving your goals?

Appreciated!!

The feeling that I know I want to do something, and even though i may fantasies about getting really good at it, i know the chances of succeeding to the extent that i want to, probably wont happen.

 Distraction from Internet (specially facebook ) and addiction to SmartPhone (whatsapp & istagram). How to disconnect from this addiction.

I tried meditation for a week 15 mins everyday. i saw great results with it. Felt relaxed and at peace. That 1 week my will power was very strong.
Then i got busy with work, i felt too lazy to get back to meditation.

 I liked Guided meditation app like Mindfullness i found it very easy to meditate with this app, since it guides u during meditation.

You'll prolly get more accurate answers from others, the truth is I don't even fucking know.

It's like a fucking addiction, I KNOW I need to finish college, or at least do something else with my life, but I never do it. Every night I watch videos like your "truth about success", decide that I'm gonna quit smoking, start working out, eat healthy and educate myself the next day, every morning I wake up go light a cigarette and drink a bottle of coke sit at my computer wasting time on fucking 9gag. It's fucking insane, like I can't think straight, like I'm not the guy who went to bed the night before. On most days I don't even remember the shit I wanted to do until like 3 pm. Rarely, if I manage to stick with it for an hour or two, I feel dull and negative and irritated, like something's missing, and worse, like I'm a piece of shit, like my life isn't worth shit, like I'm suffering right now and this is how my life will be FOREVER. The feeling I get when I sit down with a cigarette and a glass of coke is like when Neo realises he is the one, my body fills up with feel-good shit and I start to feel normal.

Not to mention higher goals, I'm 22, have no friggin clue what to do with my life, I wanna start a business and make money, but it seems so far out of my reality I don't even think about it that much.

I started reading "awaken the giant within" in search for a "cure", couldn't finish it. It was so fucking boring and I just couldn't focus (witch is weird because I finished Athlas Shrugged a month ago, and The Fountainhead in March, and with all the meditation I do I shouldn't be having focus problems).

The only habit I've ever been consistent with is meditation, I don't know why, but it's the only healthy thing in the world that I actually like doing (maybe because it just feels good right now, dunno?).

What makes me procrastinate is the fact the the way it is, is not that bad.
If was in feeling cold, I would fight for heat.
But I am in a lukewarm position, why step up?

2
and the fact that leverage does not work with me.
even the "gun to the head" analogy, does not.
Because, my mind knows that there is not really a gun to the head.
Losing money or having pain, my mind knows that I would be easier to deal with that, than deal with destroying self image.

 I have a feeling there is a kind of "fear of success" running with me. I have reached a level, where i can handle the basics (approach, get attraction, manage emotions/state), but i seem to fuck up things myself, maybe without wanting to (subconcsceously?) so i leave sets while girl is being responsive, or stop approaching, after i reach a high level of state, instead of using the high state to approach more.

Also motivation, i have a very logical job, and when i end the day , I am not so motivated to go out and approach girls.

Below are basically all that makes me fail to execute:
- Feelings that I CAN'T do something, even if I try a lot.
- I'm not worth what I'm trying to achieve.
- I live in a small city in a third world country which makes me feel limited by the environment. Feel like a good NBA player in a small basketball team. (That is related to my career though). As I'm more centered now, I'm about to move to a bigger city (São Paulo Brazil) with more opportunities of growth.

All these I have solved with the mindset  "Get Rich/Laid/X or Die Trying", I have enough leverage and dreams to pursuit and don't want a mediocre life.

and because it became an habit. we do stuff without thinking.

When I am waiting for an email, for example, I catch myself automatically openning the internet and facebook.
or if I have cheetos on the table, during work, my hand feeds me and I continue working.

the easy and crappy stimuli is overpowering.

So I logout from facebook and do not buy cheetos.
But, I am conquering the result or the cause of the habit?
I get a bad result of getting the facebook front page instead of my page. It kinda works.
or should we have the cheetos on the table and conciously not eat it.

I am reading the "Power of Habit", the guy says that we cannot habits, but replace the result of the cue.

 My biggest issue is maintaint productivity consistently(aka 7 days a week, being productive every single day).

I'm getting better at getting work done, and I'm slowly improving.  I'm like 10X better than I was a year ago but I want to get even more productive.  

Yet, there are occasional days where I'll waste a few hours on end, before snappnig myself out of it and working.  Overall I'm still fairly productive but I'll be complacent sometimes and get into a lazy haze of autopilot where I just browse forums, watch videos, etc for a few hours.  Sometimes this will happen when I take a nap at the wrong time of the day and I wake up feeling a bit hazy.  I feel my productivty is far too dependent on me feeling "good" and "in the zone". 

I would love a video on how you maintain the hour to hour productivity, and how do you snap yourself out of a haze of laziness when you do fall into it.
