Excuses are just rationalizations that we invent when we are trying to explain why we aren’t doing the things we should. By making an excuse, you are just negating the responsibility of your actions. There are a myriad of reasons why we consciously and subconsciously make excuses, but most of them stem from fear: fear of failure, fear of change, fear of responsibility.
Relating to my last post, the act of making excuses is only giving into one’s own fear. Excuses will get you nowhere. In order to grow and advance as an entrepreneur, you need to take action. Excuses will only trap you in your comfort zone and halt your development.
Do you have an idea you’ve been wanting to work on, but keep developing reasons in your head why it wouldn’t work? Do you know a way that you can grow your business, but you’ve put it off and made excuses why you can’t get to it?
Leave the excuses behind and take action today.
