Buying into my own excuses has been a focus for me over the past couple of weeks. I have been listening to Brian Tracy’s No Excuses – thanks to a colleague for the recommendation, also our last Alchemy call Shane Krider spoke directly to this ( felt like directly to me) and I started to list down all my excuses – like other people getting in my way, or not enough money, or blaming the adversity blah blah blah. One of those tough and honest conversations I have with myself to provide insight and clarity. I ended with thinking about where hadn’t I bought my excuses, I looked for a win to finish my journaling session, to ensure I raise my spirits again, so here it is.
I have been carrying a rotator cuff inquiry in my right shoulder which is slow to heal, at first I was trying to ignore it until the pain was becoming louder, I continued to do my yoga as I didn’t want to drop the ball on my exercise and I love my yoga however it was obvious I needed to put that on hold for now, I could have bought into the excuse that I cant do my exercise due to the inquiry but I didn’t I just needed to course correct and find a new way to exercise. I love to walk in the bush so I committed to upping my bush walking. I am loving the extra time I am allocating to being in nature and literally recharging and as I have just finished re reading The Celestine Prophecy I am getting to integrate the learning about raising my vibration. I have committed to do more challenging walks. Last weekend I completed a medium to steep 4 km walk and felt so exhilarated from the experience. Next goal is to complete the 6km walk. I see by staying true to my goals and not buying my excuse I discovered a new joy which could have been missed if I had bought my own excuse.
What excuses have stopped buying into.
