Every Excuse Why You Can’t {except you can}

every-excuse-you-can'tIt’s easy to make excuses.

There will always be someone else doing what you want to do, who has a much more ideal situation than you.

There will always be that person who can quit their job and start their own business while their spouse’s income supports the family.

There will always be that person who was able to attend school without also juggling a full time job.

There will always be that person who has much better connections than you.

There will always be that person who didn’t have to pay a penny of their own money to go to school.

There will always be that person with much greater raw talent than you.

There will always be that person who doesn’t have children to take care of, and can sink more time and effort into their endeavors than you can.

There will always be that person getting help and support, while you’re going at it alone.

There will always be that person who gets to attend that important event you so desperately wanted to go to, while you had to stay home.

There will always be that person who gets to work from home, and doesn’t have to spend three hours of their day commuting.

There will always be that person who becomes successful much faster than you, with less effort.

There will always be that person who makes more money than you doing the same caliber work.

There will always be that person who has more creative ideas than you.

There will always be that person blessed with free daycare, while you have to pay a small fortune.

It isn’t fair, is it? We all know it.

You have a hundred excuses why you can’t.

The question is, even after naming all the reasons how it could be easier, even knowing all the ways the deck is stacked against you….

Do you still want it?

Good. Me too. Dig in deep. I’m right there with you.

  1. So true. We either decide we’re doing it anyway or we let the excuses take over. Much better to just do it anyway. Lovely post :).
