Those who want to succeed will find a way,
those who do not will find an excuse.
Here is a list of the top 10 excuses I hear ALL the time! Do any of these sound familiar to you?
Ok so I added another one, but you get the idea!
I talk with clients and athletes every day about their goals and their progress or lack thereof. We set up action plans and provide the tools to help them achieve what they are after. Those that want it are easy to spot. They come in, work hard, track their progress, trust the process and do not complain. You never hear an excuse. Those with excuses stay right where they are.
We all love a good challenge. There is something powerful about testing yourself and taking on something that at the time seems impossible or in the very least, difficult! Jumping in with both feet and just getting it done – the tremendous sense of accomplishment that comes along with completing it… nothing better!
Imagine what is possible for you if you started each day with an I can do it attitude? Doesn’t seem so difficult, does it?
Well, just like the deception of the simple workout scribbled on the white board, your simple daily goals can quickly become a daunting task. Why??
Enter the ever-present and readily available game-changer: The Excuse.
The road to success is paved with obstacles and along with them, a list of excuses. Well, why not have a little fun and make a Game out of it?
Set yourself up for success and be aware of the excuses you tell yourself. With a “Nothing can get in my way” approach to your day, you will be amazed at what you will accomplish! Go seize the day!
