We have all have them, sometimes even daily for some. It’s a kick in the butt when you stop and realize that You alone are causing yourself to fail the second you make an excuse.
“It’s not the right time, or I’m just not ready.”
“It wasn’t going to work out anyways”
I’m sorry what? You mean to tell me you didn’t even continue because you ” thought” it wouldn’t work out? You assumed, and so without facts or finishing you just stopped? Way to go! You just quit and made an excuse to hide from the truth! And you know what, a handful of people would even come up with an excuse for why it was they made an excuse to start with!
We have all done it, the fact is this though- If you really want something, you’re going to find a way to do it and make it happen, if you don’t , then you’ll surely find an excuse for why not. Simple as that.
When you are in a down and out mood but you have your sights set on something you want, step back from things around you and really think to yourself , ” Why am I not doing what I want?” There’s probably going to be a little grumbling to yourself at this point because you know for one reason or another there’s an excuse somewhere along the way and you let that stop you.
Now Ask yourself ” Do I really want this?” If the answer is yes, take a deep breath and go after it. Drop the excuses and take control over what it is you really want. No one else is going to do it for you, and the only person stopping You, is You.
You can do amazing things, You are amazing . Everything You want is on the other side of those excuses. Whether it’s Fear, or plain laziness making you come up with an excuse, it’s still You that made it up, not anyone else. Take control over yourself and truly go after what you want, leave the excuses behind and take action.
You never fail until you stop trying.
