When you often say “no” to new perspectives and opportunities, you give more room for unhappiness. Instead of working on improving yourself, you get stuck, lying to yourself, using a great number of excuses. Your subconsciousness gradually gets used to your fear and disability to do something successfully and independently without excuses. You should know that all negative words and things have the power to come true and keep you from your dreams.
I understand that it’s very difficult to change yourself because it requires a sufficient dose of confidence, clarity, commitment and courage. If you get rid of different excuses you’ll be able to grow both mentally and physically. It’s actually easier than you think, you just need to catch yourself in the act and replace your excuses with positive alternatives. Here are ten excuses that are keeping you from reaching your goals. I hope this article will help you start fighting excuses today.
1. I don’t have enough
Many people tend to complain about lack of time, money and opportunities to be happy. All these points are the basis for perfection for an average person. If you only concentrate on your problems, you will never succeed in anything. Rich and successful people always think positively and don’t fear to start new things and projects, because they are sure that they have more than enough time, knowledge and resources to live and develop.
2. I’m scared
Try to understand that fear is just a non-existent illusion that makes you limited and miserable. Take control of your mind and don’t let your imagination create frightening pictures in your head. If you cannot deal with fear, you should make attempts to leave your comfort zone. Choose things and activities you are afraid of and meet your fears face to face. You’d better tackle them swiftly, because it is impossible to run away from yourself. Just face your troubles no matter how powerful they may seem.
