Excuses Sabotage Your Happiness
Many people come to us with stories about jobs they hate, slugging through daily routines, low energy and feeling miserable. You can make any life possible with the right mix of persistence and patience. When we ask clients why they are not living the dream life they want there’s a laundry list of reasons that rapidly come out of their mouth. Usually they’ve convinced themselves that the dream life is unrealistic, impractical, they’re not worthy of it and/or that its too far fetched.
Excuses are simply excuses
They’re not truths. They’re only as real as you make them. Excuses are artificial creations that mask the real fear, doubt or true issue. Below is a list of the top excuses we’ve heard. When you’re done reading the list, you have nothing left but a dream. When does it begin to be time to make it happen?
Excuse #1: I don’t have the money. Consider how much money you actually need and find creative ways to get it. I’m going to guess that you you haven’t even spent the time figuring out how much money you need to actualize this dream. Don’t compromise down your dream before you even explore it.
Excuse #2: I don’t have time. You can make time for the stuff that matters to you. You get to choose whether or not you prioritize your dreams. What are you doing that’s a total time-waster? Do you spend three hours a day on Facebook or mindless moments in front of the TV? What can you accomplish more efficiently? What can you outsource to someone else? Rearrange your day and think outside the box. You’ll find you have more time than you think.
Excuse #3: I’ve already started down one path; I can’t change direction. Every day you make decisions about how you live your life. Give yourself permission to change direction — no matter how much time, energy, or money you’ve already invested in another endeavor, relationship, or job. Life is all about twists and turns — be open to a new direction.
Excuse #4: I’m too scared. It’s natural to be scared of the activities that most excite you. Use fear to move you forward — follow your fear, don’t resist it. Push yourself so you can be proud of yourself.
Excuse #5: People will judge me if I fail. You’re giving everybody too much power. Frankly, people care a lot less about what you’re doing than you think. You’re just a blip on their radar screen. Make the decisions that are right for you. The people who love and care about you will support you; the rest don’t matter anyway.
Excuse #6: I’m not _____ enough. Not young enough, smart enough, or good enough? These are just limiting beliefs. Catch yourself when these doubts pop up, and find something positive and encouraging to say about yourself instead.
Excuse #7: I’m not ready yet. If you’re waiting to be perfectly ready to pursue your dream, you’ll never go for it. We all start one (shaky) step at a time. Don’t wait for perfection to move forward, just do it.
