Excuses kill your hopes, goals and dream. Learn how to get what you want without making excuses. People always have limiting stories about why they failed in life. People say “when I was young, I wanted to be this and do that”. They then make excuses for why they could not achieve their goals and dreams In the same breath they tell you that you can do anything you put your mind to.
List Of Excuses Why People Fail
Their excuses include:
- Because my parents would not let me
- I did not have the time
- I did not have the money
- My intelligence was not enough
- That just was not me
- Maybe it is genetic
This list is supposed to be of legitimate reasons why they are in a job they hate, a passionless relationship and why they are unhealthy and out of shape. These blocks could have happened, but the truth is that where there’s a will, there’s a way. You have to think about goal setting in terms of short and long-term, not just in the moment.
How To Get Your Child To Stop Making Excuses
In life there are different factors that make someone succeed. Sometimes you have to be at the right place and time. At times in history and in some countries the economy has been bad. In addition, sometimes other people had control over your actions or your money, so you could not succeed. Even knowing all these reasons, over time the biggest piece is the person themselves. Think of a pie. The biggest piece of the pie is you!
The truth is that if you want to succeed, you almost always can over time. Drive, determination, will and the right strategies pay off more times than not. It cannot be true that you never have time or never have any money. The secret is to prioritize.
Prioritize To Achieve Your Goals & Dreams
What is most important to you? If working out is very important to you, you will definitely find even ten minutes to sprint around the block or do 100 push-ups. You can easily just drink and drink differently to be healthier which takes no extra time and usually saves you money. Drink water instead of coke. You can eat more vegetables instead of fast carbs and sweets. If you are watching T.V. with your spouse, you can easily sit right beside them. On commercials you can talk and share stories.
In terms of money, what do you really not have the money for long-term? What is really so expensive that you do not have money for in the long run? If you want to start a business but you could find cheaper rent and cheaper marketing strategies. Then as you grow, you can invest more money to grow even more.
Conclusion: Making Solutions, Not Excuses
In conclusion, excuses surrounding money, time, abilities and all these other excuses are just excuses. If you come to me and use those excuses, I will call you out on it. If you keep saying those excuses, I will not work with you because I do not work with people who make excuses. Basically I work with people who focus on solutions, not limiting beliefs.
Basically if you are not where you want to be, ask yourself “am I making excuses or am I making solutions?”
