Getting Past the Excuses

Tuesday June 24, 2014 #638

Whatever you’re meant to do, do it now. The conditions are always impossible.”

~Doris Lessing


Not enough time.  Not enough money.  Not enough allies. Not enough skill.  Too many obstacles.  Too many other priorities.  And the list goes on…  All the reasons why what you really need to do is delayed or ignored.  The truth is that there will always be reasons – good reasons – stopping you from doing what you are meant to do.  Despite all of that, you must start now.  You must find it within yourself to muster the strength to push forward and do what you must do.  And you know what?  The very act of starting will begin to create solutions that remove obstacles.  Forward motion creates its own inertia you can use to gain momentum and ultimately achieve your potential.  Start now!

  2. That is exactly right. There will always be reasons/obstacles. I happen to be reading a book right now titled “Start” by Jon Acuff. – Excellent Post!
