THE WORST EXCUSE YOU HAVE EVER MADE: WHY YOU DON'T ACHIEVE YOUR BUSINESS GOAL
We make excuses for different things - and sometimes we have justifiable reasons. There is a difference. Justifiable reasons include things like 'it's not the right time, the kids are growing up, I have to finish school, I don't have the resources. Eh hold up - actually I will move that one to the excuses column because perhaps you do have the resources, you are just not seeing them.
The video below is called 'No more excuses' and excuses are directly linked to why we don't reach our business goals. One of my favourite people who talks about goal setting is Brian Tracy. He has lots of brilliant articles about this topic but you can read one of them here
Here are my thoughts on letting go of your excuses
1. Write down a list of your excuses. Just your top 5, because any more and you might feel overwhelmed.
2. Look at them differently - if someone you cared about came to sell you that particular 'plate of beans' would you buy it? Dismantle each one - break it down and ask yourself objectively if they stand up to scrutiny.
3. Commit to overcoming - if you let this excuse stop you, what story will you tell yourself? . A great tip is to make yourself accountable to someone. A friend, a coach or mentor.
I work with entrepreneurs to develop powerful and effective strategies so they can achieve their business goals. Schedule a session if you are ready to let go of the excuses once and for all!
