What’s stopping you from succeeding?
What excuses do you allow to keep you from doing?
We all make them when we really don’t want to do something. Some excuses are pretty good.. and then there are those that are just that.. excuses!
If we have a vision in our mind of what we want to manifest, complete, bring to life… then we must take on the work that goes along with making that happen.
Waiting for things to just come to us is a fantasy… it just doesn’t happen.
Do you think Mark Zuckerberg just sat down one night and coded facebook… ok so nearly but still.. to make it what it is today he had hours upon hours of work put into it… and once it came to be he didn’t just stop there. His vision continued and so did his work. He probably entered numerous lines of code that didn’t work before he came upon the ones that did. What he didn’t do was allow himself excuses.
Let’s go back even further .. Thomas Edison, Ben Franklin, the Wright Brothers… How many times do you think they failed before finding the one thing that worked??? They had an idea, a goal and they worked toward that goal until they got the results they were looking for.
Here’s an excuse I hear every day: “I don’t know how.”
Really? You are going to say this today and settle for that answer? Are you not going to at least try and find out? Umm Google, Youtube, this thing called the internet!!!! AMAZING resource for just about anything in the world you wish to learn. But that’s ok.. YOU DON’T KNOW HOW.
Sigh….. I’m certainly glad the great inventors of the world didn’t just settle for “I don’t know how”
We’d still be without lights, electricity, cars, computers, internet, refrigeration, facebook (Oh God the horror!!) LOL.. just think about it.
I’m not saying you have to take on the task of being the next big thing .. I’m just saying that if you want something then you have to WORK to get it! Stop allowing excuses and get out there and start DOING to make those dreams a reality.
I love this post! It’s sickening how many people come up with excuses for why there not successful. Then they look at successful people and think they can be the same way. Success is a major decision, backed by constant follow through everyday. Successful people understand the power of five minutes. Unsuccessful people take risk, while successful people make decisions.
