Today, I want to talk about what happens when you shift your MINDSET and stop letting EXCUSES justify the bullshit story we so often tell ourselves. 

Iโ€™ve been there. Just recently actually. 

I have an injury in my chest.. who knows what from ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ but it hurts something awful to even breathe deeply and any time I try to load my body with weight to train my legs, Iโ€™m limited by what my upper body can handle.  Itโ€™s been getting worse for awhile. 

I started to let that become and excuse of why I wasnโ€™t training as much as I should be. And that slowly turned into hardly training at all, except for zoom bootcamps with my Badass Babe Squad.  And as much as I love that, it still feels different when itโ€™s something for someone else VS something for yourself. I donโ€™t get the same workout as all the ladies Iโ€™m helping.

I realized this pity party I was having for myself and all the excuses I was making up to justify why I wasnโ€™t training.  

I immediately took steps to fix the problem by reaching out to my coach to get some things switched in my program and finding alternate ways to train my lower half that wasnโ€™t limited to what I could load on my upper half. 

I want to use my experience to help you to IMMEDIATELY stop your self limiting beliefs and excuses!


If you always tell yourself you have bad luck, eventually you will just begin to expect it. Youโ€™ll keep doing the thing that will bring you bad luck, you keep the habits and rituals that bring bad luck, because thatโ€™s what you expect and you stay stuck there. 

Just like if you make excuses or limiting beliefs and tell yourself you wonโ€™t be able to do something.. one of two things will most likely happen:

1.. You wonโ€™t take action at all

2.. You will try but you already have it set in your head that it wonโ€™t work, so it doesnโ€™t. 

The power of your mind is insane. It will make up a million excuses, if you let it. An excuse is a justification for not doing or doing something. An excuse is something other than the REAL REASON that motivated your action or lack of action in the first place.

Successful people donโ€™t make excuses. Excuses are not a reason for what happened.  Excuses are a revision of the facts that you make up to help yourself feel better about what you did or didnโ€™t do. 

They are for people who refuse to take responsibility for their life and how their life is turning out. 

Excuses never improve your situation. They make you stay stuck. 

Itโ€™s important to recognize which ones do you use on a regular basis…

Do any of these sound familiar as excuses youโ€™ve used to stop yourself from doing something you wanted to do, making changes you wanted to make, taking that course you wanted to take, asking for that promotion you wanted but got looked over for?

๐Ÿคฏ An excuse is just an alteration of reality. 

Nothing about it will improve your situation. In fact they usually do the opposite. They make things worse. 

The fact that you โ€˜donโ€™t have timeโ€™ wonโ€™t help feel better, or help you make more time. 

The fact that you have tried everything is not going to help you get out of a rut. 

The fact that you donโ€™t think you have enough experience wonโ€™t get you that promotion.

The excuse that you donโ€™t have the money is not going to help you stop spending money on things that are making you feel worse and getting you farther from where you want to be. 

Nothing happens to you. 

It happens BECAUSE OF YOU.

Life doesnโ€™t happen to you, it happens because of you. 

If you donโ€™t make success an option, then it wonโ€™t BE AN OPTION for you. 

Approaching situations with the attitude that they CAN be done, with a positive outlook, will vastly improve the probability of a successful outcome. 

Youโ€™re already halfway there, when you are at least making it an option. Excuses shift the blame and take away your power. 

Accepting responsibility identifies the solution and gives you the power to change the situation and change your future. 

Instead of focusing on how hard the journey is, focus on how amazing the results are!
