EXCUSE 1: I don’t have time. Seriously? everyone has the same 24hr you have. you aren’t going to find time to pursue your goals rather make time to pursue your goals. if you really want something you gotta systematically work.
EXCUSE 2: I’m scared to fail.
Like my whole class saw me failing. because I couldn’t give a speech. no kidding I fumbled, I was embarrassed. don’t be that girl. be afraid of never achieving anything at all because you were too afraid of what others might think of you for trying.
EXCUSE 3: I’m not enough.
A lot of people say I’m not thin enough, I’m not pretty enough,, I’m not intelligent enough. it’s all perception. it’s all that you believe is true. you can’t live your life for their opinion, you also can blame them. you need to embrace yourself. the way you are.
EXCUSE 4: I can’t pursue my dreams.
Ladies and Gentlemen, you get one chance at this, literally only once chance. you have no idea when your chance might be over. you can’t waste it living only for everyone else.
EXCUSE 5: it’s been done before.
We look at other’s life and their success and stop yourself from achieving .because its already done. well, it is done but everything has done before dating, white jeans, bangs, winged eyeliner. if something else is done then you can research, make your own theories. Be the trailblazer meaning the innovator.
EXCUSE 6: what will they think.
It doesn’t matter what they think it only matters what you think of you. someone else opinion only holds power if you allow it. if you step intentionally begin to live without obsessing over what other people think, it will be the most freeing decision of your life.
EXCUSE 7: that’s not what other people do.
This is too bold, too weird, too obnoxious. sit down. be quiet. all this voice is the hardest thing to fight against. be different. if you really wanna be the change.
EXCUSE 8: I’m not a goal-oriented person.
You should have one even if you’ve never been able to focus on one before, develop the habit and become the person you wanna be.
EXCUSE 9: good people don’t hustle
People like Malala Yousaf Zai, Beyonce, Nelson Mandela these people didn’t take up the expectations given by society.be willing to go after, wiling to audaciously take chance to live into full potential is worth any backlash that comes our way.
i just want people to try out different things blogging was something i never thought i could. i love sharing that has helped me grow. so don’t make any excuses just do it.
