I was thinking this morning of all the different excuses that people use to try to stop themselves or others from accomplishing something that really matters in life. As you journey through life listen carefully and make sure that you ignore these excuses! (By The Way – This is a lot easier said than done!)
1.) “It Will Never Work!” We can’t discover what will work, without learning some of what won’t work! Failure is just one more way that won’t work, which puts you one step closer to what will work! Take a chance if it’s worth the risk!
2.) “We’ve Never Done It That Way Before!” And at some point in time, the way you are doing it now wasn’t being done, but someone said: Let’s try it this way and “presto!” almost like magic a new way of doing it emerged! There is always room for improvement and growth!
3.) “We Can’t Afford It!” And with that attitude, we probably never will be able to afford it. If you can’t afford it, but it is necessary, then find a way to make it affordable! Wherever God gives a vision, He also provides a path!
4.) “It’s Not My Responsibility!” How many blessings in life would have been missed if everyone lived with this attitude? It may not be your responsibility, but if it needs to be done, then do it and know that it is going to make a difference in someone’s life! If somebody is willing to do what nobody wants to do, then everybody is going to benefit!
5.) “We’re Just Not Ready!” If you wait until you are ready, the opportunity may just pass you by! Jump in and get the job done – you will be glad you did when you see the difference that it makes in your life and in the lives of others! If God allows your life to intersect with opportunity then consider it a personal invitation!
Blessings & G3!
