If you want to do something, you’ll find a way, if you don’t, you’ll find an excuse….
As you can imagine, in my work I hear a lot of excuses, normally I have a joke with my guys if they start to make excuses because they ‘couldn’t do their exercises’ I start to smile as they realise it’s not a valid excuse but they already know that.
It’s not just in exercise, people do it all the time, whether it’s about a new job or starting a business. I really like a quote from Jordan Belfort(Wolf Of Wall Street)
‘The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bull**** story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.’
The classic excuse is always lack of time, so I always reply with something stupid, ‘what were you doing at 5am this morning?’ The answer is obviously sleeping, but if they are desperately committed to what they are doing, they would get up then to do it.
So if you want to do something new/different, do it, don’t just keep it as an idea.
