I know there’s something you really want to accomplish.

Maybe it’s getting that promotion, taking the next big step in your career or trying something different.

However for many people, when the time comes for them to do what it takes, the excuses start pouring out.

When we think about our goals, we understand that it’s going to take some effort to achieve them. It’ll require getting out of our comfort zones, doing things a little differently than we’re used to, and it will be difficult.

What we don’t always understand is, even when we think we’re prepared for it, sometimes our subconscious minds are going “I don’t really want to…”

“It’s going to be hard…”

“I don’t know if I’m up to it…”

“I don’t know if I can really achieve this…”

When you find yourself in that situation, take a look at your goals; you should have them written down. (This is the tool that I’ve used for years to get a vision of what I want and decide how to get started. It’s free. No excuses.)

Take a look at the list of things you want to accomplish over the next 5 years and set it next to a list of your excuses.

Ask yourself, “If I continue to make these excuses, will I still reach my goals?”

If the answer is no, you have 2 options: you can be honest with yourself about why you’re making excuses and take the next step to reach your goals, or you can edit them.

Figure out what’s stopping you from doing what you need to do, reevaluate what you want to do, and just be honest.

Making excuses doesn’t help you or anyone else, it just wears down your self-confidence. When you learn to be honest with yourself and decide what you will do and what you won’t do, you can stop with the excuses.

The only thing holding you back is you. Set your goals and go after them, don’t wait around and give reasons not to try.

Until next week,
