Some people go through life standing at the excuse counter.
People say they’d like to do this or that, but . . . then they offer all the excuses in the world why they can’t do whatever ‘it’ is. No matter what the excuses are, the only thing usually limiting them is their own self-perception.
If I’ve learned anything, I’ve learned a person – any person – can do just about anything they set their mind to do. The only thing you need is a willingness to work for what you want, patience to learn what you need to know, and just a little bit of belief in yourself. The most important of these is belief in yourself, but you only need a seed. Your faith in yourself will grow with you as you move forward.
If your self-perception is that you can’t accomplish something because you’re not smart enough, then take the time to learn what you need to know and your self-perception will change.
If your self-perception is that you can’t accomplish something because you never finish anything you start, then go finish something and change your self-perception.
If your self-perception is that you’re too lazy, too busy, too unworthy, too unfocused, too depressed, too dependent on others, too anything to accomplish great things, then you’re right. You are that because you believe that, but you can change that!
Life is change, and the past doesn’t equal the future. Your reality today is the result of your past beliefs and actions. Change your beliefs and actions and you change your future. If you think you can or you can’t, you’re right. You are what you think. 生活无时无刻不在变化，过去不等于将来。你的现在是你过去的信念和行动的必然结果。只有改变旧的信念和行动才能改变你的将来。如果你认为你能或不能，那么你是对的。你就是你的所思所想的外在反映。
Think about that the next time you need an excuse.
