Becks in his pants is pretty tempting and I do not apologise for the gratuitous picture because quite frankly I wanted to get your attention and Becks in his pants always gets my attention so if you’re reading this don’t judge because it got your attention too!
Are you making excuses for not doing the things you need to do to achieve the things in life that you want to achieve?
- Making excuses is so much easier than doing the stuff that scares us
- Making excuses keeps us safe
- Making excuses means we don’t have to have the difficult conversation
- Making excuses is something we are taught when we see our parents doing it
I make excuses daily!
…I see other people doing it daily too
…I read FB statuses daily of people making excuses.
Well, I’m sick of doing it and I’m sick of hearing people with the potential to make a huge difference make excuses that keep them small but safe!
I make less excuses than I used to but truthfully I will probably always make excuses…
I’m human, humans make excuses… sometimes we call them reasons but nope they are excuses!
…but I will also will ALWAYS strive to improve my personal performance because I have a growth mindset
Not all human beings believe they are making excuses, many truly believe they can’t do anything about their circumstances… about their thoughts… they believe their limiting beliefs are facts that can’t be changed.
They have a fixed mindset
It is always FEAR in some form that is behind the excuses… you might not understand it, but it is.
Fear can show up in lots of shapes and forms, it might be a huge overwhelming almost crippling fear or it may just be a niggling fear disguising itself as a belief that “there aren’t enough hours in the day”
Excuses are ok… but make them consciously
Its ok to be scared and stay where you are but do it consciously… do it with full awareness, make staying exactly where you are a decision. DO NOT BE A VICTIM, do not look back and think “if only…”
If you don’t want to stay where you are, if you want more from your life then you must learn to stop making excuses!!
Most of us are programmed not to do things that scare us but you can learn to upgrade that programming!
Most of us were taught to fit in rather than stand out but you can get comfortable standing out… to make a difference in the world you MUST stand out!
Most of us believe “we aren’t good enough” but you can learn that you are perfectly imperfect!
