"Excuses are lies dressed up like explanations....."
I read this recently in Chris Hogan's new book, and as soon as I read it I was nodding my head and saying "yesss!!! SO TRUE!"
Oh my goodness... How many times do we hear people making excuses throughout the day?
Or an even better question... How many times do we make excuses?
ohhhh ouch, right?!
Real talk for a minute.....
If you don't get real about whatever it is that you want to change and you don't change yourself..... things will always stay the same!
You have to stop making excuses!
Listen... I get it, most the time we make excuses because it's the easy way out.
Maybe, in reality, we are holding ourselves back out of fear...
or perhaps it's because we know that for change to happen, it is going to be daunting work.
Either way.... excuses are an easy way out.
If you want to see real change in your life, no matter what it is.... you have to put in the hard work and stop it with the excuses.
Maybe you want to work on .......
Growing your faith
Whatever it is for you... it's time to cut out all those excuses you've been telling yourself.
You don't have to have everything figured out right away, but you do have to start putting in work to change; otherwise, it will stay the same or possibly even get worse.
I wish I had a magical tip to give you that will help you stop the excuses but honestly...it's just something that you have to do for yourself.
If you need a little extra help, then reach out to a trusted friend who cares enough about you to give you a little tough love (warning...if you do this, don't get defensive remember.... we are stopping the excuses).
You have to get to the point that you are sick and tired of things staying the same and you have to get super determined to put in the work and change things up!
You can do it! You can do hard things.... but the excuses need to go!
