The only thing standing between you and your goal is the BS story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.” – Jordan Belfort
Sometimes I wonder why doing the work is not as easy as giving oneself excuses when faced with the reality of your shortcomings. You don’t need to think much about it, you know what to say at the tip of your hands.
I remember when I didn’t have a personal laptop so I told myself that was the reason why I was not showing up on my blog consistently. Then I got a laptop and I was still not showing up.
I had to tell myself the truth. I didn’t have my priorities right and there was no personal writing strategy. So I got easily distracted with whatever that comes my way instead of doing what I was supposed to do.
I have come to realize that when I give myself excuses I am just taking the easy way out. And champions don’t do that.
I have also learn’t to ask myself real questions to get out what is really blocking my my progress.
Excuses are like the surface blanket covering the real issues deep down.
When you are ready to move forward you get sick of the excuses and get real with yourself.
Most times the real reasons behind the excuses is because you don’t have a plan. There is no clear cut plan of where you are going to. So you make up stories and convince yourself that this is the reason why you are not achieving those goals.
To get to your dreams you need to stop with the excuses.
Set your intentions and priorities daily. Develop your personal strategy based on the knowledge of what your tendencies are.
Take one step at a time. Stay on track and you will start killing it.
You will surely hit your mark!
Are you tired of the excuses?
