Excuses: The Adversary To CHANGE!
“For like a poisonous breath over the fields, like a mass of locusts over Egypt, so the swarm of excuses is a general plaque, a ruinous infection among men, that eats off the sprouts of the Eternal.”~ Søren Kierkegaard
People want a cop-out, listen I’m a realist and I talk about motivation, talk about all the things it takes to be a greater or are important to win and people want to use excuses all the time.~Mike Ditka
Excuses: Some People Are Full Of It!
Excuses, excuses , people are full of excuses. They are like belly-buttons, everyone has them. I hear people complain and gripe all the time about the bad situation they have been dealt in life.
They hate their jobs, hate their life, make fun of their friends, unappreciative about what life has dealt them, but then on the flip side of things, they won’t take the initiative necessary to make a change.
A person can complain all they want, but if they are not willing to change the way they think about life, their life will just be an incessant repetition of the previous year’s gripes and complaints.
The idea of thinking big or making a change terrifies many people.
I have to admit, thinking differently to make a definite change does take a lot of effort, discipline, and risks; to jettison the old garbage of thinking and replacing it with thoughts of change that are worthy of your time and energy will take many hours of reading uplifting material and visiting with mentors who will direct in the best of ways.
What are some of the risks involved in excusing excuses?
- The loss of so-called friends. Friends who do not share the same vision of change might distance themselves from you. Understand, not everyone wants change; not everyone are willing to step out of their comfort zone.
- Quitting your job. Becoming an entrepreneur is quickly becoming common place in many households of America. They have been brought to the awareness of personal responsibility and are rolling up their sleeves to changing their personal economy through a home-based business.
- People making fun of you. People who have no initiative will often make fun of those who are daring and proactive, because they themselves are cowards about being decisive with their own lives. From such people withdraw yourselves. The sweat expended in dealing with them isn’t worth the energy, nor is it worth your time.
Your Liberation From It!
Excuses: Are they worth it? Obviously not! So exactly what are you going to do to change your situation for the better?
What are your objections for change so that five years from now it won’t just be a repeat of the past year compounded five times?
Remember, only you can make a difference in your life! So quit complaining, quit griping, because of this, that, and thus. Step up to the plate of life and start with baby steps to making a change. You can do it! Why? Because many other people in more desperate situations made a definite change in their lives, and so can you.
