Why You Should Stop Using Excuses

Excuses are little lies that we tell ourselves, like we don’t have enough time or we don’t have enough money or resources, or that we don’t have the know-how to move ahead on our biggest dreams. These little words can be deadly.

Think of excuses like weeds in the garden of our life. You don’t just get rid of your excuses at one stage in life, they keep popping back up, so we need to stay really, really vigilant. But the good news is all of us have the power to completely annihilate our excuses, and when we do, we gain freedom. We gain so much energy, and then we really create the life of our dreams.
