Excuses Begone Article #2

Dear Friends,

In my last article, we spoke about the fact that most of us are not living the life we want and deserve. According to Dr. Wayne Dyer, each of us has our own list of excuses as to why we haven’t made the changes necessary to improve our life. It is these excuses which are actually holding us back from living the life of our dreams. The following is a “catalogue of excuses” which we use to ensure that we stay stuck.

Catalogue of Excuses

  1. It will be difficult.
  2. It’s going to be risky.
  3. It will take a long time.
  4. There will be family drama.
  5. I don’t deserve it.
  6. It’s not my nature.
  7. I can’t afford it.
  8. No one will help me.
  9. It has never happened before.
  10. I’m not strong enough.
  11. I’m not smart enough.
  12. I’m too old (or not old enough).
  13. The rules won’t let me.
  14. It’s too big.
  15. I don’t have the energy.
  16. It’s my personal family history.
  17. I’m too busy.
  18. I’m too scared

Take a careful look at the list. How many of them do you recognize as an excuse that you use? For how many of them do you say, “That’s not an excuse, that’s reality, When you believe that it is reality, then the excuse becomes a “fact” for you. There are excuses we are able to recognize as excuses though we feel powerless over them. There are excuses that we don’t even recognize as excuses. In the end they are all excuses which hold us back from having the life we want.

I am here to tell you that you do not need to hang on to any of these 18 excuses (or any of your own particular variety) any longer. Change is definitely possible.  My next article will briefly examine these excuses and speak about alternative ways of looking at your life in a more solution oriented way

Until next time,
