We all use excuses at some time – whether it is to procrastinate, delay, deny, move the blame elsewhere … However, if you want to take action then perhaps when you find yourself using an excuse or wanting to use an excuse, you just start telling yourself something that will move you forward.
It will be difficult – I have the ability to accomplish any task I set my mind to.
It’s going to be risky – All things have an element of risk; however, being my true self involves no risk, it is me being genuine and authentic
It will take a long time – It doesn’t matter how long it takes to live my life to the fullest and accomplish my dreams.
There will be family drama – My family wants the best for me always.
I don’t deserve it – We all deserve to become the best version of ourselves.
It’s not my nature – Extending myself to become the best I can be means I can step outside of what I know even if it is just a little bit.
I can’t afford it – I can afford anything that I set my mind to because I am connected to abundance
No one will help me – When I take the first step, I will be amazed at the people who are there to support me to take the next step. The right people are already here.
It has never happened before – I am a leader and I will show everyone around me that there is a new way.
I’m not strong enough – My strength comes from deep within me and when I take action it moves to action.
I’m not smart enough – I am a genius in my own right.
I’m too old (or not old enough) – The age of my body has no impact on what I do and what I can accomplish.
The rules won’t let me – I live my life according to heavenly rules
It’s too big – I think about the first step I need to take, when I think small, I accomplish great things.
I don’t have the energy – I feel passionately about my life, and this passion fills me with excitement and energy.
It’s my personal family history – Everyone around me has done the best they could with the knowledge they had. The experiences I have had allowed me to become the person I have become.
I’m too busy – as I simplify my life, I free myself to live the life of my dreams.
I’m too scared – I can accomplish anything I put my mind to.
