"If you want to do anything you find a way. If you don't want to do anything you find an excuse." –unknown
This quote is self-explanatory. If you really want to do something, you figure out a way to do it. Can you remember something in your life that was so important to you, you thought you’d just die if you didn’t get it or get to do it? I’d be willing to bet that you did whatever was necessary to make it happen. Do you remember the true story of Carl Brashear, played by Cuba Gooding, Jr. in Men of Honor? If you didn’t see the movie, I don’t want to spoil it for you but Brashear provides a living example of doing whatever it takes to achieve one’s goal. When you don’t want to do something, it’s easy to find an excuse.
What is your predominant mode of going through life? Are you doing whatever it takes to accomplish your goals or are you basically coasting through life, making excuses for why you aren’t doing what you need to do? If you answered the latter, what would it take to move you into the former category? Do you think a coach might help?
