Excuses suck. No one does great with them. We should always find a way to make things better and do what should be done. Besides many of these excuses that we hang ourselves with are lies.
1. “It is not possible.”
Why do you think it is not possible? If it has not worked out before that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. Lies like this distract you from the big picture and the possibilities of making a success when all that surrounds you are failures. Retract this statement and focus on the positive.
2. “I am not worth a dime without a college degree.”
. Why consume yourself with the impossibility of chasing those things that matter to you when you can succeed even without a university degree. A lot of people in our society started from nothing and became a success without a college degree.
3. “I am not good enough.”
No one is really good enough at first, it must have taken a lot of practice and success for you to become renowned and successful.
4. “I don’t have the money to do this.”
This excuse is a lie because money is not a problem but it is you playing the victim.
5. “What will people say if I did this?”
The truth is that no one is concerned about you. And this is a fact because everyone is sucked up in their world and you are the least of their problems. Even if they notice you for a second, this is temporary..
6. “This is who I am, I cannot change.”
Why can’t you change? Change is a constant thing. Humans are created to adapt and survive. If you are being dogmatic and do not swing with the wind of change, you will only become buried by it.
7. “I am too old for this.”
This doesn’t stick because age is more of a mindset rather than a number. You have to break out of that cocoon of being too old and start doing what needs to be done. Colonel Sanders started KFC at age 62. Why make excuses about your age. Whether it is a degree you want to earn or a company you want to start, you are not late in pursuing your goals.
8. “I am not a lucky person.”
What choices you make is what affects your “luck” or chances of becoming what you want to be. Besides success is not a gamble. You have to earn it and luck only comes to play when you have gone in search of it.
9. “I will go after it after I have gotten married.”
Well it means you really don’t want to get what you are after. Marriage is a milestone that doesn’t affect your success or failure rate.. You should look at the big picture and develop your credibility for marriage rather than let marriage develop your credibility.
10. “I am too busy.”
No one is too busy. Rather you have to define your priorities rather than complain that you are so busy. Rather you should free up space for what truly matters.
