Bright Thinking

I’M RUNNING OUT OF EXCUSES!

Have you ever wondered why a project or goal you were so enthusiastic about is going no where? What happened?   People love to create, dream and think about what they want but lose their momentum when they need to follow through on the tasks to get them there.

Hey, I am no different from you!

This blog is a perfect example. I loved the thought of connecting and uplifting people with a blog that was authentic and from the heart.  However, the actual writing of it was very overwhelming.  Then the excuses start coming. I don’t have time, I don’t have the energy, I have too many ideas and biggest of all what if I fail.

The worst thing that happens when we don’t follow through is “nothing“. Life goes on as it should and we can complain that life is boring and nothing will ever change.  When you look at the word commitment in the dictionary is says a “dedication or responsibility to a cause/goal”.  My goal of doing blogs is a commitment but the action for the commitment is the follow through. Here are a few ideas that have helped me to overcome this problem.

Know your Goal. Understand the steps needed and do they connect with your interests and values.

Have Faith in yourself.  Know that your goal is worthy and the right thing for you.  Just the fact that you have tried is a validation of faith in yourself.

Choose. There are great goals and not so great goals. Pick one and get the momentum started.

Time. Think about what you are saying “yes” to and “no” to during your day.  You have the power to choose what you do and remember you need to put yourself first.

Failure:  I can explain failure and learn from it but how do I explain inaction even to myself. Its true when you take action, there is no certainly that success will happen. You will have an experience to share and momentum to try again.

“Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes”  Oscar Wilde

My commitment to you is that I will share with you my ideas and thoughts every week. Hold me accountable!  As always, I seem to learn the best when I have failed first.
