Do You Need A Change?
I think it is safe to say that many people today would welcome a change in some aspect of their life. Maybe you want to make more income. Perhaps you would like to do more but you need to feel better physically. Do you ever get bored and wonder why you don’t have many friends? Then it’s time for a change.
Change comes from doing things differently. You cannot continue to do the same thing and expect different results. So what is it that hinders us from making those much needed changes? EXCUSES.
One of the more interesting definitions of excuse or to excuse is “to release from an obligation.” Think of it. There are certain things that you are obligated to do but making excuses release you from doing them. Now, that doesn’t make it right as evidenced by the current position you are in. Making excuses for your lack of doing what’s right will never get you that better job, improved health or friendships you may be seeking. You can make excuses or you can make up your mind that things are going to be different from now on because you are looking for better results.
Some Helps To Avoid Making Excuses
1. Consider the outcome of that excuse. What does it look like?
2. Realize doing nothing is far less noble than doing something.
3. Making excuses can become habitual leading to a lifestyle.
4. Get started and build some momentum in doing the right thing and it will get easier.
