Let’s Get Real – What’s Your Excuse?

If you do not feel yourself growing in your work and your life broadening and deepening, if your task is not a perpetual tonic to you, you have not found your place. – Orison Swett Marden

A few months ago, I wrote a blog post about how excuses act as a crutch that gets in the way of going after dreams that matter. Now I’ve come across a video that made me take another look at the high cost of excuses.

The video offers a rather harsh “GET REAL” look at excuses people make up to avoid going after GREAT CAREERS they truly love and feel passionate about.

Looking at excuses squarely in the eye isn’t always pretty or fun, but nothing can change for you until you are ready to do exactly that.

And whether you agree with what this gentleman has to say or not isn’t important. What IS important is that you look at YOUR life and get real about where you are, where you are going, and where you may be selling out on going for the career of your dreams.

I have three wishes for you as an outcome of watching the video:

1)      That watching it makes you a little bit uncomfortable.

2)      That you are uncomfortable enough to get real about whatever excuses stand between you and your dream career or encore career and that you commit to giving them up.

3)      That your discomfort propels you into action to do what it takes to identify and follow your passion and purpose to an exciting and vital career that, in addition to giving you a paycheck, brings you nothing but joy – and makes you feel like you have at long last found your place.
