When you make excuses, your excuses make you. Excuses allow you to live in denial of your true potential. Your excuses are a way to except a very limited life and version of yourself. You are only as strong as your weakest excuse.
I’m here to tell you, that’s not who you are. It’s time to take your life back and discover how powerful you are and always have been.
When people find out what I do (Personal trainer, Nutritionist, Life Coach), I get asked a lot of questions from these curious minds. It doesn’t take long to realize that most people are asking me questions to validate the excuses they have on autoplay in their mind. They complain about being stuck, bad past experiences, unsupportive people in their lives etc. What they fail to realize is they are the common denominator in all these scenarios.
Fortunately or unfortunately for them, life put me in their path. I know this may be my only shot to help them realize their excuses are invalid. At that moment, whether they hire me or someone else, isn’t as important as gaining the awareness they need to get moving to start a life of no excuses!
Just imagine how amazing your life could be if you stopped making excuses and owned your bullshit! Excuses are simply bullshit disguised as words. There is not one ounce of truth behind any excuse no matter how long, how loud or how descriptive you make them.
Here are some common excuses I hear often:
- I don’t have the money
- I don’t have the time
- I don’t know how
- I don’t like to sweat
- Healthy eating is boring and tastes bland
- It’s not fun
- It’s not a priority right now
- I’ll start next Monday
It’s time to get real! Here is what is really being said and felt underneath all the excuses: Fear!
- I’m afraid to tap into and feel my own power after all these years of allowing myself to accept weakness.
- I’m afraid to make myself a priority in my own life.
- I’m afraid people won’t like the new me.
- I’m afraid to start changing because I won’t have anything to complain about.
- I’m afraid to become strong because I’ll realize that it was other people who need me to be weak because they too are afraid.
- I’ve accepted my fate of being not enough I can’t even begin to imagine I could be more.
Let’s face it, time and money are only an issue if you make them an issue. You will always find both the time and the money for what is important to you. Every excuse you have ever made and now moving forward continue to make denies you an opportunity to see how amazing you and your life can become right now.
You always have 2 choices on the road to personal empowerment.
You can continue to hold yourself back, blame everyone/everything in your life for what’s not working and continue to be a shell of the person with a less than ordinary life. Yet remember YOU are the common denominator. When you make excuses, maybe its time to realize, you get what you get so why be upset.
Drop all of your excuses, blame, and complaints. Begin today to tap into the unlimited potential dormant within you. See how amazing life can be when you decide to take care of your Mind, Body & Spirit.
When you decide to stop living the lie of who you are not, the truth of who you are comes through in the most fulfilling ways. It takes much more energy keeping up an illusion alive than living your truth. Truth takes no effort, it simply “is.”
Don’t live another moment regretting about what should have been or what could have been. You have the power to decide right now what will be.
If I had to wait for the money or time to arrive to make my changes in my life, I would not be the person I am today typing these words with such power and conviction. I’ve been where you are and where I am now is no comparison. It is amazing and you deserve to experience it! I hear your words, I know your pain but it can only stay that way if you choose it. It doesn’t have to stay that way. Decide today!
