Be Stronger Than Your Excuses

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,



The Only Thing Standing In Your Way Is YOU

The only thing standing between you and being successful is YOU. This might sound like a strange idea, but its true. There is forces at work in your mind that you may not realize, but you can control them if you set your mind to it.

Your conscious mind is the part of your brain that you use to make decisions, but those decisions are heavily influenced by another factor. You’re subconscious mind is an even stronger force that uses past experience to influence current actions. So unless you train your subconscious mind to work in your favour, the number one thing standing in your way will be you!

We talked recently about getting out of your comfort zone, and how you have to get out of it to reach your success. What you may not know is that the driving force within in you that wants you to stay in your comfort zone is your subconscious mind. This is our natural instinct and frankly it’s why we make decisions centred around what other people may think, because years ago when humans wandered the earth in tribes, if you were exiled from the tribe you would be completely screwed. With our modern thinking though, and on your way to your success, you have to think that maybe you get exiled from your tribe. What if after getting exiled from your tribe, you find a new tribe where you fit in better? There will always be people that disagree with you, so stop worrying about what other people think.

Once you stop worrying about what other people think, you’ve removed a massive obstacle in your Climb to Success. Now you can train your subconscious to work in your favour.

Today we’ll focus on step one. Write down your goal, with a time limit, and a method for getting there. Don’t just think it and know it, WRITE IT DOWN, tape it to your bathroom mirror. For example this goal could be I’m going to make $50,000 by the end of 2019, by selling cars at my car sales job, if that was your career. Once you have a definite goal, you’ve written it down, and you’ve taped it to your bathroom mirror. You’re going to read this goal out loud every night before bed, and every morning when you wake up. Don’t just think it, read it aloud. After awhile of doing this you’ll begin to view this as your only reality.

If you follow these steps, you’ll be on your journey to your own Climb to Success.
