So have you ever said these words?
- I don’t have enough time right now
- I can’t afford it right now
- Yes BUT!
- I know
- Would Like to But
- I need to But
- It’s tough right now
- ill start tomorrow
- I want to but
- He said
- She said
So if you have said or say the above STOP IT! at the end of your finger is you. As a species, we love to live in a blame culture.
People say the above list at one point or another to make themselves feel better and not take accountability for their actions or to feel better for not taking any action at all.
As a business owner & guest lecturer, speaker at universities, colleges and events internationally, I have witnessed this first hand in the business world speaking to business owners, leaders of industry and young people.
I too have fallen foul of this we all have, depending on what part of your life you want to avoid taking action on it is always easier to blame someone else. But STOP IT! have you allowed the problem to happen, why is it happening and why are you not getting the results you deserve.
This article is called tough love for a reason.
Let us now break this into reality. The average life expectancy in the UK is 80 years young. So whatever your age now subtract it from this figure.
What do you have left?
Right now, I have your attention!
With those remaining years, what do you want to do?
What are you going to do to live longer?
What beaches do you intend on visiting?
What are you going to do today so your future self will thank you?
Stop playing the victim suck it up. You get one life, but you live every day, so make every day count. Whatever area of your life right now you want to improve DO IT don’t wait.
STOP pointing fingers and turn that finger to you.
What are you going to do for a better LIFE, more successful business to realise your dreams? START TAKING ACTION.
DO WHAT YOU DO NOT WANT TO DO AND DO IT ANYWAY.
Keep being awesome, have a wonderful life, and I wish you all the success in the world.
