With few exceptions, most people want to be successful in life. Of course, success means different things to different people and each one of us has his or her own definition of what success is. Whatever your meaning of success may be, it’s sometimes hard to get there. To be successful in life and in business you must put forth the effort that is needed and follow through. Too often we talk ourselves out of reaching for our dreams by thinking them unattainable.
There are many reasons we can think up for not trying to reach our goals. But the bottom line is that these are just excuses, fabricated reasons no to do anything. These are the excuses you need when you ask yourself why you are where you are instead of living your dream.
Maybe you told yourself that you didn’t have the time. All of us have the same amount of time in a day, yet some people are able to get a lot done. Do those people have a secret? The answer is no, they just know time is limited and they must make the most with what they have. The reality is that we all have the time.
Think you’re too old to do anything meaningful? Is your age working against you when it comes to starting anew or achieving more? Not really, your age can be a benefit. With age comes wisdom and now you can take advantage of your experience in life when going after new things.
So maybe you’re willing but you just don’t know where to begin. That’s not a good excuse any more, not with all the resources available to you. It’s like the old saying goes, “the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”.
Don’t talk yourself out of being successful, just take that first step and see where it leads. Sometimes the journey is half the fun.
