Following the joy of watching this year’s spiritual practitioners begin to step into their greatness I happened to be chatting with one of the mums at the school bus stop. She was saying how much she would like to run her own business but couldn’t.
As she spoke and I listened, I listed in my head just how many limiting beliefs she had. They twisted round and round each other and even contradicted each other. I listened in astonishment as she gave me her excuses…
She couldn’t run the business she wanted to because:
I’ve got 3 children (It’s alright for you you’ve only got 1)
I have to wait till my youngest is at school
I can’t do it now because of all the after school events
I haven’t got the money
I haven’t got the time
My husband can’t help with the childcare
There are so many people already doing what I want to do. I can’t compete with that.
On and on it went. And it was fascinating. The rules and limitations that people put in the way of their dreams.
What if all those things that we give as excuses, as reasons for NOT doing our dreams are the very reason why we SHOULD?
“I’ve got 3 children” becomes “I want to do if FOR my children to set them an example that it’s important to follow our dreams”
“I have to wait till my youngest is at school” becomes “now is the perfect time to start”
“I can’t do it now because of all the after school events” becomes “Working for myself means I’ll be able to be flexible about when I work”
“I haven’t got the money” becomes “I’ll be making more money”
“I haven’t got the time” becomes “If I make more money I can pay someone to do the things I don’t’ like doing so I’ll have more time to do the things I want”
“My husband can’t help with the childcare” becomes “when I’m successful enough my husband won’t have to work as hard so he can spend more time with the kids”
What if all the excuses we ALL have for why we can’t live our dreams are actually the reasons why we should.
It’s often said that beliefs create our reality, so start to allow yourself to believe something different. Use your excuses not to as reasons to.
Here is an exercise, and it’s one that most people don’t dare do…
Think of something you’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t yet (for whatever reason)
List ALL (and I do mean ALL) the ‘reasons’ you have for NOT doing it. Keep listing and listing until you completely run out of reasons.
Take each one in turn and think of how that excuse is actually a reason why you could, or should do that.
Then go and take one small or large step towards making your dream happen.
