Today’s Excuse Is…

What excuses are you making today to not do the very thing you need to? Today's Excuse Is...
Too busy
Too tired
Too poor
Too early
Too late
Too stressed…
Well as a good friend of mine said when she tweeted this list ‘Heard them all before’!
You see today’s opportunity might not be tomorrows. In fact when you see how quickly things are changing it’s obvious that today’s work must be done today! We don’t even know if there is a tomorrow until it becomes today.
Excuses are just a way of getting yourself off the hook, of showing a lack of commitment and procrastinating. And the truth is if you are happy that way, great. On the other hand, if you are constantly feeling like you haven’t got enough time, money, energy and the rest then you really need to ask yourself what am I putting off and making excuses for.
You decide you want to get fit – but the gym hours just don’t work for you… How can that be when most gyms are open 15 hours per day?
You decide you want to have a balanced diet – but you stop at McDonald and then blame work for making you late so that you HAD to get a quick fix on the way home.
You decide you want to start your own business and start reading about the many different things you’ll need to do – and instead of rising to the challenge you just keep buying books in the hope the business will create itself on the pages. Then blame the books for taking up so much time that you didn’t have time to start the business.
Sound crazy? They are excuses I have heard more times than I care to remember. And all the while the only reason none of these things worked out was a lack of commitment and a bag full of excuses.
If you want to change your life, if you want things to be different then you need to decide to drop the excuses and start living… today!
Live Blissfully!

    You're right. We've become a society of excuse makers and it's gone far beyond "The dog ate my homework" when we are young. It's easy to imagine all the wonderful things we would like to be but sadly it seems many people stop at the dreaming stage before they even get started. It takes time, persistance and a great deal of hard work along the way to reach a worthy goal. I suspect too many people are conditioned for instant gratification only, even if the long term effects are detrimental. If you want to make your dreams come true, the first thing you have to do is wake up. ~J.M. Power

  2. That statement about instant gratification is so true and it is conditioning that has put us there. We, as individuals and a collective, have the power to change all that we are not happy with 'if' we all choose to believe in the possibilities then apply our time & gifts to achieving them.
