“I am tired, I am broke, I have a long work commute, I have multiple kids with activities in different places, I do not have the energy, I tried that once and it didn’t work, I am not a motivated person, I do not follow through with anything, I am too old to change.”
What are your common excuses? Do you have a laundry list of reasons you drag out when things are not convenient for you? The reality is we all have struggles, insecurities, and stressors. It takes a conscious decision to find motivation during the hard times or when we are feeling down. Above are some common excuses that I have heard others make when talking about their goals about employment, finances, health, life, and fitness.
I am urging you to take a long hard look at your excuses and the next time you start to use one to stop. Stop and think…instead of making an excuse, find motivation. The best things are not those that come easy, but the things we have to work the hardest for. If you are not happy with your job, your finances, your weight, your lifestyle – make a list of what motivates you and get to work. Do not wait for that perfect promotion at work, a winning lottery ticket, a magic pill, or a solution to fall into your lap. Do not wait for another day, month, year to pass before you take ownership of your life, your goals, and your plan. These boys are the only motivation I need to hustle, grind, get up, work harder, and to not settle. To know that with a goal, passion, hard work, and dedication that ANYTHING is possible. I am ditching all excuses. Who is with me?
My motivation comes in the form of a blond haired toddler and a blue-eyed infant. These boys are the only motivation I need to hustle, grind, get up, work harder, and to not settle. To know that with a goal, passion, hard work, and dedication that ANYTHING is possible. I am ditching all excuses. Who is with me?
