Here’s an interesting exercise. Notice how often you set a goal or express a desire and immediately start finding reasons why it can’t happen.
I see it all the time. A new client walks in, declares her desire—”I really want to make more money,”—and then comes the ”but…”
- I have little kids
- I’m scared
- I never went to college
- I don’t have time
- I’m too old
- I’m too young
Excuses are to earnings what donuts are to dieters—strictly forbidden or they’ll be your undoing.
If you fail to comply with this rule, it will knock you out of the game faster than any pink slip or bad economy ever will.
Excuses are cop-outs. They’re smokescreens.
They have only one purpose—to keep fear and trepidation at bay.
Saying ‘I can’t’ is just another way of saying ‘I’m afraid’.
What excuses are holding you back from the success you want? Leave me a comment below.
