Seriously, Stop the Excuses

I don’t know what it is nowadays, but everywhere I look I seem to find some new excuses.   We’ve come to a point where most people would rather make excuses and give up, then go through some difficulty, and breakthrough.

To achieve what you dream of achieving in life perseverance is key.   Nothing great ever happens without a bit of a struggle first.   You need to buckle down and work through whatever gets in the way of your cause, and push through the pain.  Not only will this allow to move closer to your end goal, little by little, and step by step, but you’ll come out the other side with a few new ideals:

  • You’re stronger than you thought.  You made it through the obstacles even though you had thoughts of giving up, again and again.
  • Now that you’ve made it through this obstacle, all of the smaller obstacles that can get in your way next week will seem diminished by comparison.
  • You’re now that much closer to achieving your dreams.
  • You didn’t give up!  You won!   Take the win and relish in that for a moment.  You may not be where you need to be, but you did achieve something!

Whatever the obstacle that gets in front of you in, stop making these excuses and just push forward.  Be like the phoenix and rise again!

Until Next Time



Do whatever you do intensely – Robert Henri

We’ve talked a lot lately about focus, and giving 100% of your focus to every goal you set your mind to, but focus isn’t the only thing you need to be successful.

You need an intensity, a passion to achieve what you’re aiming to achieve to be the best at what you’re doing.

Whatever it is you’re doing, do it intensely channeling all the passion you have for what you’re doing into that one task at a time, and you’ll be amazed at what can be achieved.

You can’t devote 100% of your focus to a goal, without an intense desire to achieve that goal. If you desire something intensely enough, and channel your focus into that thing, anything that gets in your way will be but a hurdle rather than a full on obstacle, or worse yet that brick wall that you feel keeps you from continuing all together.

Let’s be intense, let’s desire nothing more than this one goal that we so intensely want to achieve, and let’s go forth this week knowing that we can achieve it.

Until Next Time!


Focus, Focus, Focus

Bill Gates once said “Only through focus can do world-class things, no matter how capable you are”

Truer words have rarely been spoken. It doesn’t matter how great you are if you can’t focus on a goal and continue to develop to work towards that goal!

Everyone has the talent to be great at something, but few people will put in the focus, invest the time, and spend every waking moment thinking about achieving the great things they aspire to achieve.

Success isn’t a part time goal, it has to be your focus 100% of the time. You need to be thinking about it when you wake up in the morning, when you fall asleep at night, and dreaming about success while you sleep. As we’ve discussed before, everyone has a different ideal of what their version of success looks like, but we all start from a similar place. We begin with a talent, and we need to invest time and focus to take that talent, and use it to achieve great things.

When you focus on achieving these goals and set small attainable goals, you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve!

At the end of the day, no matter what you’re doing, focus is the most important aspect, so let’s move forward focussing on our respective goals and growing into our individual ideals of success.

Rather if you see this as the opportunity to have a brand new week of opportunities to go out and win, them it shall be just that.
