We often tend to give excuses to everyone; be it to parents, teachers, colleagues or even friends. Excuses feel good in the short term, but when you think of its long-term effects, the result is not enticing.
Why do we even make excuses? It could be to find a temporary solution to a problem that we don’t want to face or because we’re lazy or irresponsible. Giving excuses is like a cycle, once you start looking for excuses, you will only focus on finding new ones.
Giving excuses to yourself is the first obstacle to achieving your dreams. Even successful people fear failures. But they’re successful because they skip giving excuses and take actions instead.
Here are ways to get off this excuse cycle:
Read between the lines: It is important to understand and investigate why you are making excuses in the first place. Are you making excuses because you must work harder on a task or because you are uncomfortable. It might take a lot of effort to work on something, but making excuses is only a temporary solution.
Have a positive mindset: No matter how hard we work, it is important that your mind is happy or satisfied. When you are determined, the work gets done faster and easier. Having a positive mindset helps you accomplish a task better than when you have a negative thought process.
Set new goals: Setting new goals also comes with a positive mindset. Set tasks, focus on your energy and ensure to get things done right away without delaying. Start with short term goals, which are easy to accomplish so you can prepare better for long-term ones.
Take action: In order to stop making excuses, you must act. Even if they’re small action steps, you will slowly develop the habit of avoiding excuses and that itself is a great start. Effective actions will help you eliminate excuses and take up tasks more actively.
