“Oh, I’m too busy.” or “I just can’t at this time.” or “I’ll do it someday.”
Have you ever heard someone say this? Or maybe you’ve thought it yourself?
I just want to stop you there. I want to stop my brain from ever uttering those words ever again. It really BOTHERS me whenever I hear people give all the reasons for why they can’t achieve their dreams. Or why they can’t do something.
As a leader in my company, I’ve noticed this more and more recently. It strikes a chord, because I know I’ve said it at some point In my life as well. But, I’ve been confronting that saying in my life, because I want to accomplish as much as I can in this life I’ve been given.
If I’d given excuses, I wouldn’t have done any of the half marathons I’ve run in. I wouldn’t have studied abroad when I was in college. And I definitely wouldn’t have quite my full-time job to work for myself.
The thing is though, cemeteries are filled with unfulfilled dreams and goals. I don’t care how much work it’s going to take, but you better guess it… I’m going to achieve my goals and dreams!
So, from THIS MOMENT. We aren’t going to make excuses anymore. We are going to achieve and chase after our dreams. Right?
What are you avoiding with excuses?
I want you to take out a notebook and I want you to write up the different things you’ve been avoiding?
Why are you avoiding them?
Most of the time we make excuses because of two things: either we are scared or lazy.
Now, I want you to achieve your goals. Throw out the excuses!!!
