Excuses. We all make them, we’ve all heard them, and we’ll probably make and hear more in the future.
Often times we are angered when people call them excuses: “They’re not excuses, they’re reasons.” But the truth is, whatever you like to call them, they’re always there and always will be. There is always a reason not to do something, which is why it’s important not to use them to hold you back.
Instead, focus on the reasons you should do something, because there are plenty of those too! Instead of telling yourself “I can’t get this done because I had this, this, and this to do,” think of ways you could have done it, “if I spend less time doing this then I can do this.” It’s amazing how much more productive you can be when you’re using the most of your time getting everything done. Believing you can is half the battle!
It’s so important to empower yourself because everything in your life starts from within. If you surround yourself with positive energy and tell yourself every day that you can do this, you’d be surprised how much you actually can do. It is okay if you can’t do everything, and it is okay if you have a bad day. Just don’t let making excuses be your habit; make your habit thinking of ways you can do something.
