Start doing beneficial things for you

Anymore it feels like when we want to do something in our life, we believe we can’t do it because we’re sacrificing our time for something, helping others with their goals, and then we claim there isn’t time for what “I” want to do with my life or goals. Those are excuses. It’s because you’re not letting yourself be a priority to yourself. Don’t get me wrong, that’s the best thing you can do is sacrifice and give your time. I do it too. But using it as an excuse to not try is unfair to yourself. Take a small step on what you want to do.

Don’t use what’s going on in your life as an excuse to not become productive. At least start to match the likes of your goal when there is a great opportunity to do it. Positivity trumps negativity, even in yourself. There’s no excuse as to why you can’t start doing things for your life, reaching your goals, or ambitions, 9/10 they can even benefit others. We have a life of our own too, something we’ve been “called” to do, or something we may want to try. You can still accomplish a lot. It starts with removing “can’t” and inserting “can” and “will.” You may ask why? When we speak positively to ourselves with the intent and meaning to do something, we do it, no matter how “impossible” it feels. Usually, with enough practice, it can override many of the negative self-talk or inner criticism. Excuses can be negative, or dangerous for your productivity. As it drives down the path of procrastination which waters down your true strength and negates your potential. There is a whole thing about that I can get into, maybe sometime.

Look at it in the big picture. What is it you want to do? Accomplish? Try? I once knew a man who was a teacher to me who was in film and stuff for Disney including their parades, events, costumes, etc. for over 30 years. He also worked with Michael Jackson on a music project. I believe 15 or so years ago he became a teacher and then a lawyer. At the age that he was (probably 50+) becoming a lawyer and following that path regardless of his age and not letting whatever stop him, he accomplished both. He gets to do what he loves just on the legal side.

Honestly, if you want to do something, just do it. Why hold yourself back? There are plenty of advancements today where we can create and do something amazing. But I get it, it’s “easier said than done” which is why you push. If you want to do it, do it! Step outside the comfort zone and always reach for the goal you set, it gets hard, but you’re stronger than that excuse to give up. There is stuff online that you can sink yourself into and become something. We are something regardless, we weren’t put on this Earth to be a “nobody” but rather to leave a mark, be a blessing, and live our life burning with passion.

When you finally go through with it, you’ll be more than happy you did. I’m glad I followed my path for success and a career because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t have graduated top of my class, or get to do the things I love. So, do it.
