Make it happen... or make excuses
You have to do it yourself.
Everybody's watching to see what you're going to do. Meanwhile, time is passing very quickly. That's why you need to get your mind right - and in a hurry.
We are often our own worst enemy when it comes to blocking our success, but what’s to blame for that? A lot of the time, it’s our self-talk - and the excuses that flow from it. Excuses are one of our most powerful tools for self-influence. We use them on a daily basis; often oblivious to the potential destruction they can cause.
Here are three excuses you need to stop using, right now:
1) 'What's meant to be will be.' That's a self-taught lie that can waste years of your life. In fact, it can do a lot more damage than that.
2) 'I’d rather be happy than wealthy.' You can be both. In this earthly life, try living without money. Generally, 'wealth' is simply a by-product of wise decisions made on a daily basis - and with no excuses.
3) 'I don’t have the time.' We all have the same 24 hours - the same seven days. Whether you use that time to work toward your biggest goals or waste it, using the justification that “you don’t have the time” is your choice. The only things you should “not have the time for” are negative people and excuses. If it’s important to you, you have to find the time - you have to make the time. There is no room for excuses in the mind of an achiever.
