So, you want to know what frustrates me most?
(Well, I’m going to tell you anyway… ;))
Excuses drive me batsh*t.
Because be it a gift or curse (sometimes it’s hard to tell), I cannot help but see the potential in things.
I can’t help but see what things can be, whether it’s a new restaurant that needs some tweaks, or a person who wants their life to feel easier, but does not quite know how to get there.
What really drives me nuts is that I can’t help but see that most people are closer than they think to allowing what they really want to come into their lives.
They just need a slight adjustment. A tweak. An alignment…
But do you know what keeps people from doing anything to get where they really want to be?
And here’s what’s really insidious about excuses…
Most people fall into the habit of making excuses for themselves without really being aware of it.
This makes me want to slap them (usually only in the figurative sense); to knock them awake from sleepwalking through another day, another week, another year…
So I want you to consider this…
If there’s any area of your life that currently feels out of alignment — whether that be your money situation, your relationships, your business, or your career (or all of the above) — then you need to know that the unwanted situation did not just happen to you.
Quite the contrary… it’s happening because YOU ARE ALLOWING IT TO HAPPEN.
Somewhere you’ve convinced yourself that things are okay when in truth, things really do not feel okay to you as they are. Somewhere you started to believe your excuse…
Here’s the kicker about excuses… As long as you allow them, WHAT YOU DON’T WANT WILL CONTINUE TO GET BIGGER OVER TIME.
I listen to so many people who have the burning desire to upgrade some aspect of their lives. They know they want something better. And deep down they know something’s out of whack that requires their attention.
In fact, they talk about it. They spend lots of time worrying about the same things. And usually, they continue to do what they’ve been doing, hoping for some form of divine intervention to take charge of their lives and make things better.
But when it comes to DOING something new?
That’s when the excuses pop up like mushrooms after a rainy night.
Oh, I’d like to, but I can’t because…
(Of course you could if you really wanted to)
I don’t have the money to spend on myself…
(People always find the money for what they really want)
I don’t have the time…
(effing lamest excuse of them all)
I’ve never done anything like this before…
(Guess what? It’s time to be an adult and try something new)
I’m okay with how things are…
(An excuse that means “I’m really afraid.”)
Here’s the bottom line: Living a great life full of freedom, ease, and connection won’t just magically happen for you. You can keep wishing, but that will work about as well as rubbing a lucky rabbit’s foot.
No, you need to decide. You need to show up. You need to stop sitting on your hands on the sideline, and get in the game. (While this is true for most everyone, I’m especially calling out men here… When did so many men become such wussies who fail to take charge of their lives, anyway?)
I’m not saying I can solve your problems. Only you can do that.
But I am saying if you know your life is supposed to be absolutely rocking in every way, and you’re ready to let go of what you DON’T WANT, than I have something to share with you.
At the end of this month, I am hosting a live event where I will sharing everything I know about creating a Very Cool Life. It’s a philosophy that has worked very, very well for me.
Specifically, I will be focusing on upgrading your DESIRE and then HOW TO ALLOW those desires to come into your life.
What’s more, you’ll have the opportunity to get coached by me, in person, on anything you want and finally get that handled.
Upgrading your life requires only two things… 1) That you’re there. 2) That you ask me for what you really want.
It’s going to be a very cool experience in a very cool place.
Finally, here’s what makes this an unprecedented (and likely never to be repeated) opportunity.
Seats for the two-day live event are just $100, less than what I charge for a 30-minute phone session.
I’ve taken away most people’s biggest excuse, though it can easily be replaced with others. I just hope you won’t let that happen any more, starting now.
Okay, as I near the end of this rant, I I know who it’s really written for…
The people who are really deep in the muck and completely wrapped up in their excuses will not be able hear a thing I’ve said here… They’re just too far away from the belief that their lives are supposed to be great. And that’s fine for them…
So, I am really writing this for YOU, if…
- You feel the burning desire to feel like a winner again.
- You know a Very Cool Life is your destiny.
- You know you’re ready. (Or at least you’re ready to show up.)
If that’s you, I encourage you to simply say yes to yourself and join me while the seats and rooms last.
(We’ll be meeting at the Burlington Hilton. The special rate I’ve negotiated will save you more than your admission ticket to the event, but note that this offer expires this Friday, September 9 or when rooms sell out. )
(Hotel details will be sent to you via autoresponder.)
So if you feel like you want to come, decide to come and follow through.
It’s not complicated and you’ll be thrilled you did.
At any rate, whether you join me or not, decide to no longer be part of the crowd that makes excuses. They simply never win.
(Okay, now I feel better!)
Hope to see you in Vermont in a few weeks. It’s going to be a rocking good time!
