Countless dreams have died simply because of one thing – EXCUSES. Believe me, it’s so easy to come up with excuses, without even realising you’re making one. The most common and most dangerous excuse I hear all the time is this – “I don’t have time”. Hey, I make this excuse too – A lot. Although, I know for sure that the excuse – “I don’t have time” is a fallacy , I fall into this ugly pit too. The truth remains the same , the excuse – “I don’t have time” , is an illusion.
I bet you’ve heard of this viral excuse too – “No capital”. I’ve heard the “No capital” excuse countless times . I’ve made this excuse too, countless times. This “No capital” thing, is the favorite excuse of many aspiring entrepreneurs. Although, capital plays a significant role in making things happen, but , it should not be used as an excuse for NOT making moves . I realized that NOT having capital isn’t your biggest challenge. Look, I learnt this the hard way. Your biggest challenge is your inability to THINK deeply and execute immediately. A mentor of mine (Grant Cardone) said it right – ” It doesn’t take money to make money, It takes COURAGE!”. Once again, I learnt this the hard way.
The essence of this article isn’t to criticize people for their reasons for NOT doing things , the message of this article is this – STOP LIMITING YOURSELF. PEOPLE use TIME to limit themselves , by saying – “I don’t have time”. Some use money – “No Money”. Some use other people’s label to justify themselves – “I’m not smart enough”, Really?! Take note of this –
Whenever you justify yourself or find “suitable” reasons for not doing something, you are limiting yourself, your thinking faculty , your abilities and your potentials, period!”. – MR MIH
Everyone makes excuses (At least, everyone I’ve met), including myself, BUT , if we actually want to move forward , we must get rid of this limiting habit. How? By using a simple technique I just discovered – The “IT DOESN’T MATTER” technique. What’s it about? Whenever you find yourself trying to justify yourself for NOT doing things , let’s use “I don’t have time ” as an example. Immediately you think about it or say it, you should then replace the thought with something like this – “I don’t have time? It Doesn’t Matter, I’ll figure it out!”. You feel the difference? Stop giving away your power, okay? Always put yourself in a position of control.
If you do have BIG dreams and you aspire for BIG things, you must put yourself in a position of almost always FINDING A WAY. Winners hate feeling stuck and they are irritated by excuses! Change your thinking! You don’t have capital? IT DOESN’T MATTER. It seems like there’s no time? IT DOESN’T MATTER. You feel like you aren’t good enough? Hey, IT DOESN’T MATTER. You feel stuck? IT DOESN’T MATTER. The guy next door is getting it right and you are not? IT DOESN’T MATTER (Focus on your lane). Get rid of the excuses , IT DOESN’T MATTER where you are in life today, If you believe and you’re commited, and keep making moves, anything is possible – Don’t quit!
Final message – If you must become anything in life , become UNSTOPPABLE!
