Image result for excuses quotes

Good morning,

People have PHDs in excuses and haven’t even completed primary schools in finding solutions….I am sure you understand what I mean..

Here are excuses mostly used (not all I am sure) by all of us to justify our lack of action, laziness and incompetence.

  • It can’t be done

Because you don’t know how to in that moment or someone told you it can’t be done. Learn how to do it. Stop being limited by others! Where there is a will there always is a way!

  • This is really difficult

If it was easy everyone would be doing it, and besides it wouldn’t teach you much, would it?

New things are always difficult/challenging at the beginning. They get easier with practice and devoted time.

  • I don’t know how

Learn. We are not born with abilities to do things. We practice….just like walking when we are little. We fell hundreds of times, we got up and practiced.

  • This won’t work

How do you know? Because it hasn’t worked before or for someone else? You won’t know till you give it a fair shot. Just do it and you might surprise yourself 🙂

  • Next time

Procrastination……ahhh….the crowd favorite :-). What if there is no next time? Maybe that was your chance, the once in the lifetime opportunity?

Don’t postpone starting your diet, exercising or whatever else till next week….start today!

  • This is not my fault

Whose fault is it then? Blaming everything and everyone for things and circumstances in your life won’t get you anywhere. Own your screwups, learn from them and move on. This is the only way to grow as a person.

  • The problem is…….

Everybody is great at finding problems, try finding solutions. The people that win in life are the problem solvers.

  • I don’t have any support

Find support. Stop complaining and being a victim. If you look long and hard enough you will find someone willing to help you.

  • I don’t have enough time

You make time. Organize your day writting things down in a calendar. Make them a priority and don’t let the little things distract you.

  • This is too expensive

Is it too expensive or are you just to poor to buy it? Who decides how much money you can earn and have? Who has the power to make this decision for you? The Government? Your boss? Outside powers? NO! You do. Don’t have the money? It is simple. Do something to change it.

  • This is not up to me

Do something to make it up to you. If you can’t or don’t want to, accept it. No point wasting your energy and time on things beyond your control. Concentrate on things you have control over.

  • I got used

Face it…you let it happen to you….lack of knowledge, naivety or something else. Stop feeling sorry for  yourself. Learn from it so it won’t happen if the future.

  • I am doing everything that I can

Are you really? Start doing things that until now you didn’t or couldn’t do. If something is not working try doing something else. Albert Einstein said “Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results is INSANITY”. Think about it 🙂

  • People won’t like it/what will people think and say?

Who cares, I mean really…..of course there are some people that we care about and care what they think, but……..are you living your life for yourself or everyone else? They might even mean well, but this is your life and you should live it on your terms.

You might argue, that those are not excuses-they are facts. Are they really? Ask your conscience. You can lie to the whole world but you can’t lie to yourself.
