Ever notice how people are always making excuses and pouting about certain things? For the longest time I used to do just that. It was always something.
First it was the economy. Then there was the fact that 150+ applicants applied for the same job, so why should I bother with such a saturated market? Then, it was the fact that I don’t have a ride, without a car, I can’t go anywhere.
I’ll admit, life can be tough sometimes, but we have to pull through and look at the upside. Perhaps, the reason I’m going through all of this, is so that I can become a leader and potentially provide jobs for others. In an otherwise down economy, this is a plus, a big plus.
No one really likes being unemployed. There is little reward in this. So, why not join me and start creating jobs? Let’s become a leader in the next generation?
There will always be excuses though that we’ll have to keep an eye out for. For example: I’ve been having a big excuse about not being in the mood to write on my Novel, yet at the same time, I’m keeping up with a Blog everyday. Well, nearly everyday.
Perhaps my biggest problem is I’m too stressed? I think it’s time I started looking at that as well and started being a little more creative. Between playing Minecraft and Painting, I think I can relieve a bit of that stress.
Also, it doesn’t hurt to start living like a kid again. Remember when you were little and built your first log cabin out of Popsicle Sticks? That was fun, especially when you did it with family members. Nowadays, we’re a lot more creative and could potentially make a full blown house with rooms and all.
Are you with me? Let’s drop the excuses and start taking charge.
I was having a chat with someone recently about doing things in life and changing it up. It was brought to my attention that they were making excuses for themselves. What excuse? They didn’t want to get fit or healthy because they didn’t think their husband deserved it.
I know what you’re thinking. Really? Yes, really. All too often we make excuses that we’re not even aware of. Sometimes we’re aware of them, but most of the time we’ve told ourselves that often enough, that we’re not aware of them.
Why is this an issue? Why wouldn’t it be? We’re on this planet for one thing and one thing only. Ok, maybe a few things. For example: we’re here to be healthy, learn and grow, and experience all that we can. So, why is it that we’re holding ourselves back?
I think that a large part if it is negativity. Negativity is what holds us back. Even if we have plans, (big plans) we’ll could still have some negative thought holding us back. As Randy Gage puts it, you have to get rid of the negative thoughts and replace them with good thoughts. Only when the Positive outweighs the negative, can we then move forward.

One thing we have to realize, is that we’re hear for ourselves. No one else. We don’t have to please anyone. If we want to be healthy, it should be for our own reasons. To live longer, live happier, regardless if someone deserves it or not. We deserve it for ourselves.
Before you go bashing yourself with negativity, remember this, “It’s for me, no one else.” What are some other excuses that you’ve caught yourself giving? What are some tips that people can use to become positive thinkers?
