Hey Transformers! Trevor Buccieri here and welcome to your weekly minute mindset.
Have you ever noticed the amount of excuses people give in their lives?
I don’t know about you, but I’ve certainly noticed a whole hell of a lot of them.
If it isn't someone else throwing the excuses around, then it's most certainly me.
Most would argue that excuses are like butt holes. Everyone already has one of them and we're not necessarily looking for another.
I would argue, bring the excuses on because the excuse is not the issue here. The issue is how long we are going to enable ourselves to live inside the excuse. The excuse is simply a tool giving us the opportunity to step up.
Excuses are directly linked to fear. We avoid jumping into many things in our lives due to fear of not being good enough and also not being loved.
This fear holds us captive and at its mercy until finally we embrace it and muster enough courage to step up and overcome.
The difference in time between when an excuse manifests and when we break the boundary by stepping up and crushing it represents our degree of personal growth.
The faster we're able to recognize our excuses, step up and overcome them, the more capable and in tune with ourselves we become in our lives.
In reality, there is nothing wrong with excuses at all. The problem lies in the amount of time it takes us to step up to the plate and start swinging. In fact, many find themselves stuck in excuses for years, continually festering over them, when the answer is just so simple. Step up.
Excuses are nothing less than a gift because they hold the opportunity of massive personal growth. All that's needed is recognizing them, stepping up to them with certainty and finally taking massive action to destroy them.
Have an outstanding inspired rest of your day!
