10 For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
- Ephesians 2:10 NIV
THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF PEOPLE IN THE WORLD. PEOPLE WHO MAKE A DIFFERENCE... AND PEOPLE WHO MAKE EXCUSES.
IS IT POSSIBLE YOU'RE MISSING OUT BECAUSE YOU'VE WALLED YOURSELF IN?
FEAR OF FAILURE IS DIFFICULT TO ADMIT.
AN EXCUSE CAN BECOME YOUR KING.
5 (Not so easy) steps for breaking through false barriers:
- IDENTIFY your excuses.
- INTERROGATE your becauses.
- RE-LABEL your reasons.
- ANSWER this question - what do I lose if I continue to excuse?
- TELL somebody.
IF YOU DON'T IDENTIFY YOUR EXCUSES, YOU'LL EXCUSE YOUR LIFE AWAY.
