“When you’re interested in something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results.” ~ Ken Blanchard

“Put all your excuses aside and remember this: YOU are capable.” ~ Zig Ziglar

At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets. ― Steve Maraboli

If you read any book about success or speak with someone who has done amazing feats, they will al tell you” do not make excuses”.  Just go to work and do it despite your mind telling you not to.  Your mind will play tricks on you and give you every reason not to do the work.  And we listen.  We allow ourselves to get in the way of ourselves.  We limit our potential because of perceived risks/ downfalls.

I’ll tell you what.  I make excuses.  I sleep in.  I miss workouts.  I don’t cook sometimes.  I talk myself out of being disciplined and doing what is best for me.  I can tell you something for sure. I have rarely regretted waking up early/ on time.  Or going to the gym. Or cooking a healthy nutritious meal.  It gives me a humble confidence knowing I did something despite “obstacles”. I feel better after a workout and solid nights rest.  Also, being disciplined creates mental toughness.  When we do something we do not think we can, we become more willing to do it.  It becomes a habit.  We become stronger physically, mentally, and psychologically.

Think about areas where you know you need to improve, but always reason yourself out of it.  Is it going to the gym?  Eating right?  Limiting sugary drinks?  What excuses do you use to legitimize your choices?  How can you discipline yourself to make a change?  I know.  It’s tough starting out.  That is the tough test part.  After that, it gets easier and becomes part of your routine.  Where will you make a positive change and stop making excuses?  As Always, East, Move, and Improve!
