Excuses Begone

Excuses Begone!

Excuses Begone is a book from Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, one of my favorite authors. In his book he teaches how to change lifelong self-defeating thinking habits.

The question is, why do we all the time stop ourselves? What are the reason that we let that happen. The answer is not so easy. We all have a different history in life. We all grew up in different families and surroundings. These factors have a huge influence on our thinking and our habits.

 

Excuses Begone Starts With Cognition

When you want that your excuses begone then you have to recognize what they are. You have to identify what pattern you follow when it comes to make a decision to change something and you don’t do it. Most people follow all the time the same pattern in their life. It’s mostly the same thing that stops them. It doesn’t matter what it is you want to change.

For example you want to lose weight. You know that your health would highly benefit when you would start with regular exercises. You want to undertake something and you start looking for a gym to join. But as soon as it comes to sign in to the gym you hesitate. You say to yourself, I don’t have the money because I need a new car. Or maybe you say, I don’t have enough time because my boss has set me under pressure and I have to work longer hours in the office.

When you read this, do you see also a pattern in your life? It’s not always easy to accept that you have excuses. And it’s also not so easy to break a pattern and to start a new way in thinking had behaving.

 

Excuses Begone – Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

Excuses Begone – How To Break The Pattern

In principle it’s easy. You have to take the conscious decision to change and simply do the things you want to change. I now it sounds a bit strange. In his book Excuses Begone Wayne Dyer has put together seven questions you can ask yourself when it comes to overcome your limitation and that you can say my Excuses Begone:

 

  • Is it true?
  • Where did the excuses come from?
  • What’s the payoff?
  • What would my life look like if I couldn’t use these excuses?
  • Can I create a rational reason to change?
  • Can I access universal cooperation in shedding old habits?
  • How do I continuously reinforce this new way of being?

 

These questions will help you to overcome your excuses so that you can say “Excuses Begone”. I highly recommend that you read the book from Wayne Dyer to move to the next level in your life. To go for the things you really want and don’t let you stopping anymore from your self-defeating pattern.

There where also things in my life that I could have worthy excuses. For example, when I started with my online business I started doing it in English. English is not my primary language and I never lived in an English speaking country. I always lived in Switzerland were we speak Swiss German. So you see I could easily say “sorry this business will never work for me”. Most people would say “you are right, it’s too difficult to start such a business”.

But I have dreams and I knew that when I want to achieve my dreams then I have to overcome my limitations. It was a conscious decision to join The Six Figure Mentors to start building my online business. I have known that I have to overcome huge obstacles. Was it worth? Yes, it was definitely worth to overcome these obstacles and my life changed completely. Excuses Begone!

    Although what you say about excuses is totally right, there are circumstances which turn excuses into valid reasons ! Telling the difference is important.

      Thanks for you comment William. It’s often a pattern we inherit from our parents and close surrounding. And I think people are often not aware of these pattern and on the other hand not serious enough to change something about it.

    You are right Bruno, excuses just hold us back and they don’t pay the bills either. The biggest thief in our lives is a negative mind full of excuses. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey Bruno, insightful post on the control excuses can have on our lives and why it is so important to be clear on why we use them, and if they are adding or subtracting value from us.
    The video is great and the book looks like one to add to my collection if I can find room on the shelf! Thanks for the information.

    Hi Bruno

    Great post, and sounds a really good book.

    Is this new? I only ask because this sounds like a great self help book, one that would fit into most MLM systems…. ydet have not heard anyone talking about it.

    Last Sunday we were at a company run training event, and as normal, a company called Knowledge Is King were there….. And I have never seen that book on their stalls…. must check out their website!

    Thanks for sharing this, this I would think has to be the number one topic for anyone who is starting self development…. in fact, we often do self development to do THIS ONE Thing.

    Funny, we may overcome all with this one book, and philosophy(s)!

    Will have to put that book on my wishlist….

    Excuses, we all do it, sometimes without realizing. And I agree with Derek, Q: Telling the difference is important…. sometimes you give an excuse as to why something wasn’t accomplish, family must come first…

    They do however hold many people back from achieving their goals.

    I’ve always been curious with this question..

    How to you make an excuse not an excuse?

    I love this Bruno. There are too many people who make too many excuses these days. I believe it’s a subject that definitely requires our attention.

    Absolutely Bruno, it is all about breaking those self defeating
    patterns, something I have been working on myself recently.

    Hi Bruno – you are right in what you say – it is all too easy to make excuses and before you know where you are life and opportunities have slipped by.

    They say you are never too old to tackle something different and if you have the belief in what you are doing now you can still make a major difference to yourself and many others who come into your circle of influence.

    You just know now that this is really your last chance to achieve what you want out of life and JUST DO IT!

    Cheers John
