NO EXCUSES

NO EXCUSES


What are excuses? Excuses are rationalizations we make to ourselves about people, events, and circumstances.They are invented reasons, stories we create to defend our behavior, to postpone taking action or simply as a means of neglecting responsibility.

There are many reasons why people make excuses. In fact, everyone has a variety of reasons for making them. However, we mostly make excuses for the following key reason.: FEAR

Fear traps and locks us away in the confines of our comfort zone. However, for the most part, fear is very much misunderstood.

Our fears typically emerge due to a lack of understanding, information, resources, experience or perspective.

If for any reason you lack in these areas, you will naturally struggle with self-confidence. As a result, you will fail to take the necessary actions that could help move your goals forward. You will, therefore, tend to make excuses for your life and circumstances. All you’re really doing is creating the illusion of security.

If you don’t challenge yourself to reach new heights, you will never really know what you’re truly capable of. 

Focus on Solutions and Opportunities

When making excuses, we often focus on problems, regrets, and on things that just didn’t work.

With this in mind, to get rid of excuses from your life, you must instead begin focusing on solutions, opportunities, and on the things could actually work.

It’s a simple shift, but if we keep this in mind while making excuses, it will immediately transform our perspective of the situation at hand.


There will always be forces and circumstances outside of your control that will test and challenge you, but as Theodore Roosevelt once said, the person who makes up their mind to be great must “not only overcome a thousand obstacles, but win in spite of a thousand repulses and defeats.” 

Decide that nothing will stop you and focus on never giving up. Feel the power you have over your life and own it.

Establish high-definition goals, put a detailed plan in place to get there, and let nothing stop you from executing that plan to completion — no matter the setbacks. 

 Experience the hard-earned triumph of high achievement, and enjoy the journey getting there.

Success starts with refusing to make excuses, no matter what. Stop looking for justifications and instead focus on the one thing that you can control, yourself.

So many people think they aren't where they want to be, because they don't have the talent to do so, they aren't as "lucky" as others. In all honesty it takes about 10% talent to achieve something great, the other 90% is based on how much heart you have. How much you are willing to work when no one else is watching. Putting all you have into your ambitions, and never cashing out early. This is what separates you from the rest.

Failure is a word that can easily be taken so many different ways. It is a word that can transition from context to content, and in reality; it holds a different meaning to all of us. In many cases and in many instances the word “failure” is perceived with a negative characterization.

When it comes to achievement in any area of our life, there aren’t many things that hold us back quite like we hold ourselves back. Beyond our fear and lack of accountability, one of the biggest reasons most people struggle with accomplishing their goals is a lack of CONSISTENCY.
