Excuses


Dear Friends,

Today, I am thankful for the advice to ELIMINATE EXCUSES!!  🙂

Is there something you know you want to do, but you keep finding reasons to start later?  Do you you feel strongly that it is super important for you to start something, but you just seem to keep finding excuses to put it off?

The truth is, when it comes right down to it, we probably won’t “feel like” doing anything that requires grit.  Excuses are a dime a dozen and our lower brain will try, like a car salesman, to sell us on any number of reasons not to so something that will get us out of our comfortable cave.

Excuses will keep us from reaching your goals and reaching our dreams.  Excuses limit who we are and what we want to accomplish. If you find your self saying, “I can’t (ex. figure it out)” or “I don’t (ex. have the time)” recognize the excuse.  One simple hack I love is to switch these words to “I won’t (ex. Find the answer; make the time).  Own your life and tell the entire truth. Take 100% responsibility and eliminate excuses.

I have known for the past 2 years that the next move in my business is to create a parenting course.  I could list 300 excuses I’ve come up with over this time to put it off. YIKES!!  A common saying is “If you argue for your limitations, you get to keep them.”  I’m done making excuses.  I know there are parents out there, struggling with “prickly teenagers”, at their wits end, feeling stuck, confused and heartbroken just as I was.  I learned so much over this past 5 years through cognitive behavioral therapy, life coaching and my own, in the trenches, experiences.  I know NOW is the time to act on my promptings and show up in a way that will bless and serve others.  Excuses will not take up any more headspace!  BTW- it feels so GOOD moving forward with what I know is what is right!!

Excuses are dream killers!!  

I am so grateful for the advice to eliminate them by telling the whole truth and living life from a place of extreme ownership.

What are you thankful for today on this beautiful Thursday?

YOU ARE DESIGNED FOR GREATNESS!!

Rooting for you always,
