What’s Your Excuse? Do it Now!

Latest posts by Melanie Rembrandt (see all)

I just returned from a visit to Detroit. My Aunt Margaret died unexpectedly, and I wanted to pay my respects to this wonderful woman who touched the lives of everyone she met.

It just goes to show you that things can happen when you least expect it…whether you are ready or not.

With this in mind, are you working towards your goals right now, or are you putting them off until you have more time, a bigger budget, more support, etc.?

What are your excuses?

Now, I don’t mean to be pushy. But this is just a simple reminder that the time is NOW to make things happen and work towards your lifelong goals.

We all have days when we’re tired and you just don’t feel like working.

But in today’s competitive, fast-paced business world, it’s important to keep going and give your best efforts each day.

And it’s easy to be distracted by e-mails, phone calls, friends and family, food, television, etc. In fact, I know this all too well and even have a small sign posted on my bulletin board that says “No excuses.” It reminds me to give at least 100% of my efforts no matter what.

And as crazy as this may sound, my drive and work ethic has paid off. I am blessed to have great clients who refer me to others. And opportunity seems to knock on my door more frequently when I give every project at least 100%.

Now, if you want to make more happen in your life but you just can’t seem to get out of your rut, check out these sites for some help:

And instead of being jealous about your wealthy friend, family member or co-worker, make your own success happen.

Start with small changes and get into the habit of giving everything you best whenever possible. Soon, you’ll start to see good changes happen.

And best of all, you’ll be taking action to make your overall life goals come true-no matter how much time you have left!
