EXCUSES, a motivation slayer

Updated: Sep 7, 2021

Have you ever heard anyone say: “yeah… sorry, I wasn’t able to get on our call, I was in a meeting”, or “I am always on the go and don’t have time to eat healthy, let alone get fit”, or my personal favorite “I have too much going on in my personal life, to be able to focus on my business”?

Now, let me bring the above into context so that I can make my point. The call he missed was on his calendar, and the meeting was with someone he actually just ran into. There is a juice bar literally next to her office and a gym in her apartment complex she has never set foot in. Lastly, his business is failing miserably, his family falling apart and the affair he is having is taking focus away from his business and he is not willing to give it up.

Have you ever heard anyone say: “sorry, I cannot meet you tomorrow, because I fractured my motivation”? Well… this is exactly what the one on the receiving-end is feeling, when someone in their life gives them ten million excuses every day. They fracture another people’s motivation. Let me say it again, they F-R-A-C-T-U-R-E people’s motivation. Pushing them away, every day a little further.
