What stops you from getting things done?
What’s your excuse to not getting things done?
Let’s say there is something you really want to do. It can be placing an ad to get more clients for your business, facilitating workshops to increase your revenue, or wanting to increase your monthly sales’ goal.
The key point is it is something you’ve been saying you want to do for a period of time, but haven’t gotten around to doing it — to the point where every time you start the sentence, “I’d really love to earn 50% more money by the end of this year…,” you flow straight into your list of excuses… on autopilot: “But I can’t! I’m already charging too much” or “I don’t feel it’s right to increase my expenses right now by renting out office space”.
Now, you may be saying that you don’t use excuses, and you only have valid reasons for why you “can’t” do what you say you want to do.
After all, excuses are for irresponsible people… and that is certainly not you.
Well, if there’s something you say you want to do, but continually have a “reason” why you don’t do it, there are only 2 possible explanations for that:
1) You do not really want to do what you say you want to do; you either continue to say you do out of habit, or because you think you “should” want to do it.
2) You really do want to do what you say you want to do. But, it is risky, this will force you to step outside your comfort zone.
If the answer to your scenario is #1, then by all means stop saying that it is something you want to do — because you don’t, not really. So, let it go. Bring some closure. It’ll free your mental and emotional space so you can pursue something you truly DO want to do.
If the answer for you is #2 then most likely you are using an excuse that allows you to hang onto your desire and provide a logical reason why you can’t do it, thereby keeping you safe and still yearning.
What do excuses sound like?
Here’s a list of some of the most common ones:
I’m too dumb
No one will like me
I’m not good enough
I don’t have enough money for that
I don’t have enough time
Do any of these sound familiar?
You wouldn’t use excuses if they didn’t serve you in some way.
It’s hard to dig a little deep and admit that, but otherwise why would you use them?
Simply to torture yourself?
Making excuses, complaining, whinging, commiserating may be easier than doing something about it (only because you got used to that), but it comes at a cost… a huge cost that can be lack of financial and business success.
So why would you entertain and live with excuses.
Either go wholeheartedly after what you want or let it go.
So, make that list of things you really want to do and create a plan, including lining up any support or resources you may need, for making it happen not “someday” … but today.
