People fail or give up on goals because they claim they don't have the resources to get things done.
They talk about not having enough time, money, knowledge and other resources to get things done.
Of course, this is also a great excuse for why you failed or gave up.
You can just say things like:
“I didn't have enough money”
“I didn't have time to go to the gym”
“I didn't have an office space to work”
“I didn't have the right software to get the job done”
“I didn't have investors to start my business”
“I didn't know enough about writing to write a book”
“There were too many other guys talking to the woman so I could not ask her out”.
I can make a long list of these types of excuses.
I have been guilty of them too in the past.
So I know the bullshit.
We all have to overcome it.
But the truth is that it's never a lack of resources.
Its a lack of resourcefulness.
How resourceful are you?
Have you ever been in a position where you gave up because you told yourself a story about why you can't do something?
We live in a world where there is more than enough resources.
Want to start a business?
Don't start with “I don't have any investors”.
Why do you need investors?
And why should they give you money?
The truth is if you really want to start a business you would find the money.
You would bootstrap it until you got it off the ground.
Find a way to make it happen.
Elon Musk taught himself rocket science by reading books.
He could have said “I don't have a degree in rocket science” and gave up.
But he didn't, it was so important to him to go to Mars that he found a way to make it happen.
You want to build muscle and get in ridiculously good shape?
Don't start with “I don't have the time to workout” or I'm too tired to work out after work”.
The truth is that if its important enough for you then you will make time.
You will schedule those workouts in your week and get them done.
If you can't go to a gym then start running and do pull-ups in the park.
Find a way, be resourceful.
Want to date beautiful women?
Don't start with “I don't know what to say to women.”
Or “She won't like a guy like me”.
If you think you are not good enough to date beautiful women then change it.
There are enough resources out there to change the way you think and act with women.
Learn from the more successful men and start going after the women you want.
Learn and execute.
Life is too short to go through it alone.
Wanna be happy and travel the world?
“I would move to Thailand if I could but I can't afford it. “
If it was important to you then you will find a way.
Find out about Thailand online, learn about job opportunities and buy a ticket. It's simple.
Don't over complicate things.
Like most things in a man's world when in doubt , simplify and execute.
