Just Do It
Updated: Feb 21
We have all heard the saying "You only have one life!", but we tend to think that life has
eternity attached to it. We put off our dreams year after year until eventually it is too late. I want to share three excuses that people say to me about why they don't do more of what they want and how you can get past them.
I Don't Have The Money:
This is a valid excuse for some people, but for most people it is not. It is not that they don't have the money, it is more that their money is not focused. In order for more of your money to go to your dreams you have to stop throwing it towards things that don't matter. For example if you want to retire two years ahead of schedule then instead of eating out four times this month put that same money in your retirement account. Refocus!
I recently went to the Virgin Islands by myself for vacation. I received at least 50 direct messages on social media from people saying "how they wish they had the courage to travel alone." If you let fear control you, you will miss out on so much in life. That business you could have started, that promotion you could have landed, that love of your life. Never let fear keep you from doing what you want.
What Will People Think Or Say:
The last excuse is the one that paralyzes so many people. Caring about what other people will think or say. There are people who will have a great business idea, but won't launch it because they are scared of what people will say if the business fails. Others won't travel to another part of the world because a family member who has not been to another state in the United States says that other countries are dangerous. Living your life based on the opinions of others will guarantee that you don't live life at all.
There is no excuse not to live the life that you want to live. It may take some extra work and determination on your part, but you can do it!
