We can always find a reason not to pursue our dreams, not to take action, just watch in the sidelines, or not to play hard. Our reasons can seem perfectly…well…reasonable, or so it seems. We have this incredible ability to justify why we can’t do something – especially to ourselves. We can convince ourselves of almost anything; that we are just being realistic, responsible, and smart. It’s probably for the best; we try to convince ourselves…we really did not want it anyway.
“Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure.” – Don Wilder
Some of the Most Common “Nails” in Our Future of Failure
- “I don’t have enough time.”
- “It’s too hard”
- “I don’t have enough money.”
- “I’m too tired.”
- “I’ll start tomorrow, next week, next month, next year.”
- “I’m too young, too old.”
- “I’m not smart enough for that.”
- “I don’t have the experience I need.”
- “I’m too busy.”
- “What if I fail?”
- “It’s too risky.”
- “I’ll do it when the kids are older.”
- “No one has ever done it before.”
- “This isn’t the right time.”
And it never will be…as long as we keep making excuses. Do these nails of excuses sound familiar? How many of theses nails are preventing us from living our true potential, our A Game?
Excuses aren’t really reasons, they’re just how we justify not pursuing what we want in life. The truth is, all these excuses are LIES. These lies are nails we box our selves into that prevents us from living the life that we want and leaving a very important tool behind, DISCIPLINE.
We can only succeed when we stop telling ourselves why we can’t. We can stop making these excuses, and live our truth. The truth is you have all that you need to not ever need these NAILS of excuses. The truth will stop you from kicking the can down the road in life that comes with the lack of discipline. Its time to nail all those excuses shut them in a box and listen to YOUR Truth. It will set you free. Live the Truth of who you are and Get it DONE!
It’s Game time, are you READY?
