During my last trip home to St. Croix to visit Mom, I went for walks every single morning, and was blessed to do three book signings for Meditations Across The King’s River.
And during one of my morning walks, two words came to me that I want to share with you.
- No excuses.
- No apologies
These are important word. Remember them. You can’t move forward if you make excuses for why you should stay where you are.
And you shouldn’t apologize to anyone who judges you because you’ve decided you want a better life for yourself.
The only one who needs to approve of your vision is you..
Be careful with excuses. They pop up in many ways and often seem like valid, logical reasons.
Do any of these reasons sounds familiar to you ?
- I’ll do it but not right now.
- I need more information.
- Too risky.
- Takes too long.
- Not sure I have what it takes.
- What if it does’t work out?
- But I’ll miss Game of Thrones
- After the kids are grown.
- After the Raiders game.
- What will others think?
Here’s a tip. Instead of finding comfort in excuses, think of the number one reason why you need to move forward. In the business world we call this knowing your WHY.
Let me tell you something, my friend. There is another world waiting for you, and I believe you have more options than you think. You do not have to stay where you are. You can live a more empowered life.
Talk soon. Until then, no excuses.
