Stop Making Excuses

(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #12)

“BLA BLA BLA. This is what I hear when you tell me you can’t do something.”
— Unknown

Excuses. We all know about them. They are friends of convenience and nemeses of success. More than likely, we’ve made one or two in our lives. We can always find a reason why something can’t be done, why we won’t take action, or how something is not possible. Our reasons seem reasonable to us.

You’re Capable of More Than You Know (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 73)

You’re Capable of More Than You Know

Quit Looking For Excuses

“He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.”
— Benjamin Franklin

There is no such thing as too tired, too hard, too late, too early, too easy, too much, too little or too old — those are just plain old excuses.

You can let the excitement and creativity of the world pass you by, or you can stop hiding from life and start living life.

Make a Mental Shift

purposepoints23

When it comes to finding and fulfilling our purpose, we can do one of two things: (1) make excuses; or (2) find creative, innovative ways to do what we have been called to do. Most roadblocks and setbacks we experience begin in our minds. What holds us back many times is the thought that something or someone is actually holding us back. Overcoming the things that get in our way can often be done by making a mental shift from excuse-making to actually making things happen. Read more…
