Well 2, me and the excuses I let myself believe.

I realized if I wanted to start taking action I had to do something different. I had to stop allowing the excuses to keep me stagnant. In order to do that I had to shift my mindset from excuse to execution.

When an excuse pops into my head I do these 4 steps to push past it.

Time waits for no man or a beautiful woman.

Do you guys remember when Aunt Maxine had everyone raving about reclaiming our time?

But what about reclaiming your dreams, reclaiming what you deserve, reclaiming the woman you want to be?

Are you ready to reclaim that? Or are you going to sit by in complacency stuck watching everyone else live their dreams? That’s not you. That’s not a part of the plan.

Between working, running a business, family life, and trying to not become a hermit I’m exhausted by Thursday. It takes a lot of effort to make sure that everything gets done.

I don’t try to do everything, I aim for balance. A little bit of this gets done, a bit of that can wait.

Here are a couple of ways to help you find balance as well:

1.      Ask for help. I’ve got so much vying for my attention that it’s a wonder I get anything done, but I let others know when I need help.

Selfishly Push Yourself

Ladies, it’s almost the end of January and I want to know how you’re doing on your goals? If all you’ve done is write them down in your pretty notebook, I need to get pull it back out. You need to get clear on what goals you really are going to be committed to actually accomplishing. We all know about setting SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Result focused, and Time-bound) goals. But are you giving yourself too much time?

I had to push my goals into overdrive because I realized I would write my to-do list for the week, then do the majority of them Thursday & Friday. I have no clue what I was doing those other days, but it wasn’t productive and I was wasting time. Time, that I kept saying I didn’t have.

Know the Scent Of Your Own Sh*t

Self-knowledge is one of the most powerful skills to have.  It allows us to have a better grasp on things in life that just happens to be an aggravation for us.  For example: If a person is aware they have a low tolerance level for waiting on someone, they have the information required to redesign their reaction to a friend who is always late.  When hanging out with a habitual late friend one may want to secretly adjust the meeting time with this person.  If the meeting time is scheduled for 10:00 am the prompt person may not want to arrive until 10:15 am.

When you become angry or aggravated about something who do you blame? Do you blame not enough time, the situation or a person who may be involved? To be honest you are to blame. I know, I know, how can someone else “pissing you off or not being respectful of your time” be your fault? Well here’s how….. You are responsible for your own emotions. This is not to say that the actions of others, and or aggravating situations won’t initiate negative emotions.  To be honest, the emotion isn’t the problem; the excess time spent on an issue paired with negative emotional reactions is where the real problem lies.  The antidote is simply knowing the scent of your own sh*t.
