How many times have you said you would love to do something and followed it up with a “but…”? Whether that “but” was about money, time or help the truth is that it simply isn’t a priority at the moment. While that may seem a bit harsh at first, I know from personal experience that when something is important to me, I find a way.
If you’ve ever wanted something so bad that not having it wasn’t an option, you know what I’m talking about. Even when others are throwing the “buts” your way, you have no time to entertain them because you’re focused on making that goal a reality. The “buts” you’re coming up with right now are simply excuses that cover the truth – you’re not ready at this moment to do what it takes to make it a reality.
What it takes to make your goals a reality could be any number of things:
No matter what the challenge is, remember that it isn’t insurmountable! Some of the obstacles listed above may take more time to work through than others. That doesn’t mean that it’s impossible though, does it? Set a budget, get serious about starting a daily routine that helps you stay focused on what is important, set boundaries and connect with people who can support and encourage you through the journey.
When you get honest about the “buts” in your life, you can do something about them. Don’t talk yourself out of living the life you want and deserve. You are worth it. It won’t be easy. It’s going to take commitment, determination and persistence to see your goals through to completion.
If you’re up for it, I’d love it if you’d join me in a challenge. I’m challenging myself to go ONE WHOLE DAY without saying BUT! I was going to push it and try a week, but as a recovering control freak and excuse maker I know better and am taking baby steps 😉
Are you up to the challenge? No “buts” today. No, I know I should work on this but or I wish I could get that done before the end of the year but. Instead of looking for reasons why you can’t or you haven’t, look for reasons why you will. See how long you can go without making excuses why you can’t do the things you want. Imagine how things might shift when your thinking does! ♥
Let me know how you do in the comments 🙂
