Excuses, Excuses, Excuses.
So often I hear people use reasons as to why they can not do the thing they know they really should be doing. They are basically always the same reasons…
They have no time, they have no money, they are not equipped/ qualified enough.
Sure if you really look at it, and think (possibly overthink) about it, these reasons are damn good reasons. Even beautiful excuses. They are valid, they are accepted and they are sometimes even seen as ‘responsible’ reasons as to why you are not ‘yet’ doing what you know you should be doing with your life.
This is all very well and good but you know that all this leaves you is to still be not doing what you know you should be doing.
Replace the no time, money or qualifications excuses with what it most likely is really about and that is YOU ARE SCARED and now we can get real on where to go from here. Cos in all honestly this is the only place to start!
Fear is a huge factor in most of our lives. Fear keeps us from walking off cliffs, or from getting hit by a bus, or from losing our jobs, houses or worst still from losing respect in our communities, but all it does is keep you small.
But one thing is for certain… Fear does not create Love. It simply can not. Therefore if fear can’t create love then it can not create happiness.
Fear stops us from reaching our God given potential in this life, from using our gifts in the way we were meant to.
Why don’t we just cut to the chase and call a spade a spade and say it always comes down to your perspective and the choices you make.
I know people who have more money than I can ever imagine to have and you know what? They too use the ‘no money’ excuse or there are those who are literally on their bare bones and still find a way to do their magic thing.
I also know people who literally have no job, no children and really no commitments but they still say they have ‘no time’ or the extremely time poor peeps who just make their dream life a priority.
And I know many many people who have a few degrees and post grads and a bunch of diplomas under their belt, not to mention the plethora of online certificates they have collected and they STILL use the excuse that they are ‘not qualified’
This stuff blows me away and makes me incredibly sad.
There is not much in this world that makes me more upset then seeing people who have a burning desire to live a life based on what they are most passionate about, to pursue their purpose, their message, their calling, but they let their fear, cleverly tell them that they simply can’t.
All this said, fear is in us and it is here to stay.
I don’t believe it is a worthwhile pursuit to be ‘fearless’ because it is a part of us but to be BRAVE, thats another story, and to be brave we must make the right choices. The choices that support us so that we can begin to do that thing that we know we should be doing.
I know by now you are thinking about your ‘thing’ that you dream of doing in your life.
I encourage you to day dream about it a little right now… envision yourself living that life.
Now think about what choices you will make from now on to start choosing you and your thing.
You are right… it is going to be hard, but that doesn’t make it impossible.
