I’ve been trying to write a post recently about making excuses but it keeps ending up long winded. We all make them, but no one wants to be told they’re making them. I’ve made them, trying to get healthy, trying to lose weight or trying to keep the house tidy. From reasons to why I’m late to reasons why I’ve put off my homework. We all do it, and we often use very similar ones to other people, they accept it because if they don’t they have to admit that when they said it, it was just an excuse. So if you’re struggling to achieve something, what are your reasons why it hasn’t happened yet? Don’t have time? How much time did you spend on social media today, would you have time if you cut back on that? Are you running late? Is there a good reason or were you faffing? Cant lose weight because you’ve got no will power? Or maybe you say you have no will power because you don’t want to fight the urge to munch on junk? Many of us use willpower as excuse, not because they are sabotaging on purpose but because they’ve convinced themselves it’s true. You do have the willpower to do almost anything, and you will find it and use it. Being honest with yourself is a great way to get started on those new habits, and if you’re hiding behind excuses, you’ll slow that process down.

So write down your end goal, think about what you need to do to achieve it and if you spot a possible excuse try to analyse it, is it really an issue?

Let me know how you get on this week.

Never thought I'd see the day that studying became something I enjoyed, but here we are. My blog is where I put my thoughts, I also plan to start a blog of short stories, with a new prompt for each story.
