Beware Excuses

The pain of regret outweighs the pain of self-discipline.

There’s nothing more sabotaging to self-leadership than excuses. I could write an encyclopaedia of excuses, I’ve used many and heard them all.

Didn’t have time is the best one. It seems no one can argue with the “didn’t have time” excuse. But it’s just a reflection of self-sabotage.

Being hard on yourself doesn’t work either. There’s no use abusing yourself for not doing what you promised yourself. That doesn’t work to motivate, in fact it makes things worse. It is self defeating. Instead….

Do what you say you’d do. Do it. Just do it. If you can’t do the length of time you committed to, shorten it, but do it.

If you wish for quality of life and success, meaning balanced success, you really must be conscious of your excuses.

As a life coach I say I don’t like stories and the reason why is that most stories are just fodder for excuses.

No excuses. No Bull. Self-Respect instead. If certainly feels better.

The pain of regret outweighs the pain of discipline.

With Spirit
