Monday Motivation – Be Greater Than Your Excuses

Life – It is truly one big excuse.

Something can and will always be getting in the way, making your goals more complicated and difficult to accomplish.

Basically what I’m telling you is there will always be excuses and reasons NOT to do something.

The question then is…How bad do you want it?

Because if you really want it bad enough, nothing will hold you back and you will find a way to accomplish your goals.

If you aren’t dedicated to your goals, any excuse will cause you to fail.

And I’m sure right now a few of you are shaking your head and telling yourself…”But I really don’t have time/money/resources/knowledge…whatever to accomplish my goals and I really REALLY want to.”

Uh sorry…But you are LYING TO YOURSELF and making excuses.

And to some extent all of those excuses are valid. They all are reasons why you can’t accomplish your goals. They are all barriers and hurdles that you have to overcome if you want to succeed.

The point is, if your desire is strong enough, if your plan is good enough, then those excuses are just that – merely hurdles that you can overcome.

Notice that I said DESIRE and PLAN.

Because motivation will only keep you going for so long that you need to create a plan to help keep you on track when the excuses build and you want to stop moving forward.

Wait…So I said if you want it bad enough you won’t give into your goals yet I also said that motivation isn’t enough and that you need to have a PLAN.

YUP!

If you want it bad enough, you will create a PLAN that will not allow excuses to derail your progress.

You will create a meal prep plan that doesn’t allow you to give the excuse that you are too busy or stressed to cook. And you will create a workout program that is convenient and quick that fits your crazy, busy schedule.

You will create a plan that address your excuses instead of using your excuses as a way to get out of doing what you know you truly want to be doing!

Because when you really want something, you PLAN for success!

So what’s your plan for this week? How are you going to be greater than your excuses?

P.S. A huge thanks to everyone that came out to celebrate our Grand Opening on Saturday! Had so much fun! Here are some pictures from the event…
