Excuses Are Your Fears Coming Out As An Apology
Excuses are nothing but fear, if you say you cant do something don't blame your circumstances, friends or partners. I look at three thoughts of thinking positivity, ego and fear. Your thoughts have the power to shape your life and lead to your actions. You are the only one accountable for your actions in this life and you can choose to think in any of these three forms of thought. You cant look around and say your surroundings are what they are because of outside forces and that you can't do something. Most importantly do not lie to yourself by giving yourself a f#cking pep talk in the morning saying how you are in control of your life then go out and think with fear unable to take action. That is just insanity, you have full control of your life and what you need is action, focused action.
When you go about your day you come across barriers or occurrences that require extra effort for you to step out of your way. When you are an entrepreneur in business it is a simple law of numbers you need to be networking with so many people, accomplishing so many tasks, being kind to a certain number of people to get that energy back and work a certain amount of hours everyday on your product. It is a constant flow of energy, being in your business and life. When you think about the basic principal of your business as energy and yourself as its catalyst you envision something that just keeps going. When you factor in the world around you though things change because of fear.
When you think about just that simple point as I mentioned before there should be no stopping your business. When you know who you are, what you want and apply it to your business that energy should be constantly moving forward. Then that thought pops into your head and it starts out really small like "my friends are going to the bar, I want to go" so you head out. You blow off maybe that extra meeting and deadline. It's okay to do this once in a while but its your fear creeping in masking itself as an excuse, like its disguising itself as an apology. You know why because when you are in the flow of things you allow things to happen. You just go to that meeting and perform that task not knowingly divert from it.
What I mean by this is you don't resist things getting done, you let them happen just like you let your social life happen. When you make excuses to go in another direction its your fear creeping in. You are afraid of failing or not being able to complete something. You can never allow excuses to overcome you as an entrepreneur and this has nothing to do with pushing aside down time. It is the opposite because even with down time you can get out there and network. It is about not taking action its about taking the easiest path because of your fear.
You want to be able to catch yourself from making these excuses because they sound so good at the time. Like I said its like an apology from your fear instead of your fear saying "your going bankrupt" its more like "lets Netflix and chill". Overcome your excuses by making sure you set a goals list every single week. In that goals list even have time for yourself, some Netflix here and drinking there. That way your excuses are gone. That little voice in the back of your head gets drowned out. You know why because it is written down you have time set aside for yourself so you don't have any wiggle room to make those excuses.
Allow yourself to control your thoughts in order to control your actions. Then you think and act positively without letting fear divert your actions.
I am here to take your fear away, too murder it.
