We all have excuses to not do something.For example, excuses for not going to work.
Sometimes we use them to protect ourselves.
Sometimes we want to justify our current situation by having a list of excuses.
Maybe Your excuses are Valid?
Maybe your excuses are valid.
Maybe your excuses are 100% valid.
Maybe your excuses for your current position is accurate.
Maybe Your Excuses Are Not Valid?
Maybe your excuses are not valid, maybe its just a shield.
Something you use to avoid responsibility.
But this article is not about telling you your excuses are valid or not.
This article is about telling you that it's irrelevant if your excuses are valid or not.
Im here to tell you to have no more excuses.
The Real Problem With Excuses.
Only one thing happens when you believe your own excuses.
They become real and you become stuck with them.
When you hang around your own excuses they become you.
Even worse if you hang around the excuses of the people who surround you then they also become part of you.
They become part of your identity and it becomes harder and harder to get rid of them.
If you let these excuses in your life become part of you then nothing in your life will ever change.
The Name Of The Game Is Changing Yourself: No More Excuses
The name of the game is changing yourself.
This is the only thing that will destroy your excuses and everything that is holding you back from living the life you want.
Change Yourself First Then The World.
Before you can set out and change the world you need to change yourself.
This is the first step in breaking the shackles of your excuses.
Step up and say I take responsibility.
I take full ownership of everything in life.
Everything includes the thing that wasn't your fault.
Take ownership, then you can change it.
As long as you are controlled by excuses you have no power.
Excuses mean one thing only and that is that outside forces control your life.
By taking ownership you take the power back.
Create a Vision Of The Person Who You Want To Become.
After making the choice to take ownership of your life you need to create a vision of who you want to become.
If you have been living with excuses for a long time you probably have a shitty vision of yourself.
Years ago when I started my long walk to freedom I had a bad vision of myself and my future.
It took hard work and perseverance to change it.
It started with a new vision of who I wanted to become.
Go sit down and ask yourself who the person is who you want to become?
Think about the people you admire and the qualities you admire in them.
Take those best qualities and create a vision of the person you want to become.
Set Your Mind On The New Vision Of Yourself.
Now you need to start making this new vision of yourself a big focus in your life.
This vision needs to be in your mind constantly to create the feedback loops in your mind that will reinforce this vision in your mind.
This vision will start pushing you to take massive action towards that person who you want to become.
Acquire The Skills and Qualities To Become That Person.
Go to work in acquiring the skills you need to become the vision you have for yourself.
Do whatever it takes to turn your dream life into reality.
Knowledge is available today like never before in history.
Read books, blogs, watch video courses and go to seminars.
Do whatever you have to to get the skills you need.
Then Start Closing The Gap Between Who You Are Today And Who You Want To Become.
Start closing the gap between who you are today and who you want to become.
This will take massive action on your part.
It will take courage to stay the path.
You might feel the need to go back into your excuses.
Resist that feeling and keep your focus on your vision and push forward.
Ask Yourself How You Can Become The Type Of Person That Is Able To Get Past What Is Standing In Your Way?
Your path will not be easy, you will find obstacles that will make it difficult.
Things go wrong.
Some plans might fail.
But don't give up on the first sign of resistance.
If it was easy being successful then everyone would be living great lives.
The problem is that most people stop when they have setbacks and never recover.
They didn't know that setbacks are just part of the process.
So they gave up.
Criticism For Changing.
You might get criticized by friends, family, co-workers, and others.
People don't like change and when you start changing you will be attacked.
Not all people will have bad intentions but some will just not like losing a friend that used to hang out with them.
Others might just hate the fact that you are transforming your life.
Forget the criticism and take it as a sign that you are moving in the right direction.
Make Excuses Or Make Progress.
The bottom line is that you have a very simple choice to make.
Keep on making excuses and go nowhere in life.
Or take ownership of your life and become someone that you can admire.
Life is short and excuses wastes a lot of time.
Take ownership now!
You Have To Start Moving Forward.
“If you can't fly then run if you can't run then walk if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” -Martin Luther King Jr.
The path to success and turning your vision into reality will be hard, but in that process, you will become someone great.
However, you must overcome whatever is coming your way.
You must defeat whatever the universe throws your way.
You must keep moving forward.
Find a way to win, find any excuse to win.
Winning In Life is a Conscious Choice.
You have to make a decision to win in life.
Make no mistake, it is a choice.
You have to make a decision that you are going to win this game called life.
When you make that decision and align all your other choices with that decision then you will be unstoppable.
The flip side of that coin is also true.
If you make no decision about your life on this planet then the stream of life will just take you away.
Making no choice about your destiny is also a choice.
Its a choice to die before you physically die.
Don't become that person who is a victim.
Instead, go the other way, make the conscious decision to win in life.
Then take the actions required to be successful.
