Why is it so hard to get up and do something, yet so easy to make excuses not to do it?
Part of this traces back to the comfort zone, which we spoke about in another recent post, however, as a society we are inherently lazy. This is a fascinating evolution as time goes on, because though I’m no expert, I can assume that our Neanderthal predecessors weren’t making up excuses to avoid going hunting. They knew they needed to go hunt to be able to eat and survive. Why do we not believe that what we strive to do is as essential as finding food?
In this modern era of convenience and technology everything we need to survive such as food and water are readily available to us. So if you have a roof over your head, and have easy access to food and water, then you’re alive and don’t have the sense of urgency of before? We should feel a necessity to not only survive, but to thrive! I feel a constant motivation to be my best self as someone who not only wants to thrive, but NEEDS to thrive in my lifetime.
Be stronger than your excuses. If you let the excuses win, you’ll never accomplish your goals, however, if you can be stronger, you’ll never let the excuses stand in your way.
Until Next Time,
