A business associate and friend of mine Cameron use to ask,
“Do you know the only thing worst than an excuse?… A good excuse.”
What does he mean by a good excuse?
He means an excuse that you actually believe.
An excuse that you don’t try hard enough to overcome.
If you are sick and tired of letting your excuses stand in your way, then you may want to look into picking up a copy of “The Power Mind” by Ray Higdon. You can get it here. It will help you turn your excuses into reasons and get you from procrastinating to taking action.
It doesn’t matter whether and excuse is big or small.
Believable or unbelievable.
Valid or made up.
There is no such thing as a good excuse or a bad excuse. Excuses that stop you from achieving your goals are all equal.
“I don’t have enough time.”
“I don’t have enough money”
“I’m too old/young”
“You don’t understand Kenny, I really don’t have any time. I have 3 kids and 3 jobs. I barely have enough time to get enough sleep and we are struggling to make rent. My excuse is valid.”
All of the above may in fact be true but there are people that have had even less time, less money, less resources, less everything and they still have made it happen.
“The real truth: If you let yourself believe in any excuse that stops you from achieving your dreams, you simply don’t want it bad enough. You are unwilling to work hard enough to overcome it.”
I know that sounds harsh.
Excerpt from the book “Hero” by Rhonda Byrne (author of the secret)
If you want it bad enough, you’ll make it happen.
You could argue and try to prove that your excuse is valid but why would you argue? If you win the argument then your prize is failing.
If you are willing to look deep within yourself and say, “It’s been too long that I’ve been letting this excuse stop me. I CAN overcome it. It will take everything I got but it will be worth it,” then you prize is your goal.
How cool is that? Victory is sweeter when you have to work your butt off for it anyway.
Turn your excuses about why you can’t do it into reasons why you must do it.
Instead of saying, I can’t do it because of:
too young, too old
not smart enough,
I have kids
Turn it around.
I MUST do this BECAUSE I don’t have enough time.
I MUST do this BECAUSE I don’t have enough money.
I MUST do this BECAUSE I don’t I have kids.
You have a choice, excuses or results. You can’t get results AND make excuses. You only get to have one. The bad news is that you have to choose between the 2. The good news is that you DO get to choose.
You have everything you need in order for you to live the life of your dreams but it will take everything (no less).
If you want to be successful, then you better bring some mental strength to the table. If you’re mentally weak, the unfortunate truth is… you’ll let your excuses chew you up and coldly spit you out. I don’t think you want that to be you. That’s why you must cultivate a very particular mindset that will allow you to nurture and grow your mental toughness on a daily basis. If you know how to do that then I invite you to start doing so starting today. If you don’t know how to cultivate mental toughness, then you may want to look into picking up a copy of “The Power Mind” by Ray Higdon. You can get it here. It will help you turn your excuses into reasons and get you from procrastinating to taking action.
