Stop Making Excuses

At some point in our lives, we all begin making up stories for why we haven’t done what we want to do in life. These stories are commonly known as excuses. The problem with excuses is that they all sound logical, at least to us. We can’t work out because we just don’t have time. We can’t start that business because it’s just not the right time. I can’t be on time for work because of my kids. The biggest problem is with the word “can’t.” When that word appears it signals that you’re telling yourself a lie. It’s a lie because you can. You just haven’t prioritized it.

Exercise

  • Get up, go over to the mirror. Look yourself in the eyes and tell yourself the excuses you’ve been telling yourself for why you can’t do the things you want to do.
  • Then get a journal and write down what you’re losing because you keep making those excuses.
  • Rather than telling yourself you can’t do it, figure out a plan for how you can.
