Enjoy Life! In everyday life… “You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOU. GOD made you in His image. All of us are. NO ONE is better than anyone else.
No matter what age you are now, you are never too young or too old for success… or for going after what you want. Everything has hope… as long as you keep hope in it. And, you should never allow space for excuses… because the only valid excuse you have for not going after what you want in life is… because you simply – DON’T WANT TO DO IT!
Here are some excuses people make for not going after their dreams:
1. “I’m too old.”
2. “I’m too young”
3. “But I’m not an entrepreneur.”
4. “It’s not all about money.”
5. “I’m safe in my current job.”
6. “I don’t have the skills.”
7. “I’m sick.”
8. “I’m sick of people telling me what to do.”
9. “I don’t have technical skills.”
10. “I tried but I can’t do it.”
11. “I need money NOW. I can’t put in the work.”
12. “I don’t have TIME.”
And there’s many, many more. But, if you want to make it far in life… Don’t Make Excuses! At some point, even I have used most of these excuses before. But all of these excuses can be overcome. Right now… you might have the luxury of deciding which excuse you will use. Tomorrow you will have the luxury of using an excuse to explain why the first excuse didn’t save you. But pretty soon there will be no excuses.
Don’t Make Excuses… Make Improvements! Don’t Make Excuses… Make Adjustments! Excuses hold you back… and they are self limiting beliefs.
If you think you can’t do something or you just think it’s too hard, don’t make excuses so you can get out of it. If you fail, so be it. Learn from your mistakes and failures, and make adjustments. Choose to learn and improve yourself through actions. Don’t make an excuse and give up on life before you even start!
By not making excuses for your actions (Or Non-actions) and the outcome… you begin to elevate yourself in the eyes of the people who put their faith and trust in you. You prove that you are a trust worthy individual. You prove it by taking personal responsibility for your actions.
No matter what you do in life, no matter what guidelines and rules you choose not to follow, no matter what the outcome- don’t make an excuse for it. Fess up. Admit your mistake. Take responsibility for your choices!
