Excuses - we all have them.
Whether they revolve around your fitness and diet or something completely different, believe it or not, there is a simple way to make sure they don't weigh you down.
In this post, I will tell you how, through a very basic but true statement and here it is:
Your excuses are merely beliefs, they're not facts!
Excuses exist in our heads because sometimes we need them.
Our minds create excuses whenever it thinks it needs to protect us from something - i.e. humiliation, failure, risk of injury or something else that's equally as uncomfortable.
And it's human nature for our minds to do this - in fact, it's pure primal survival instinct for our minds to protect us from potential danger or discomfort be it physical or otherwise.
But here's the thing, the creation of any excuse is there to protect you from a POTENTIAL outcome - read, NOT FACTUAL OR CERTAIN OUTCOME!
So when it comes down to it, excuses are nothing but beliefs - often based on outdated experiences or lack of experiences.
And as it so happens to be with most excuses not to do things like go to the gym or eat a healthy diet, the excuse is often not valid when challenged because the belief is not factual.
Which basically means, you can challenge all your excuses using the smallest amount of logic.
So whenever you start feeling weighed down by your excuses not to go to the gym or do your meal prep, remind yourself of this;
Excuses are beliefs, not facts. And at any given moment, you can change your belief so that it serves you rather than hinders you.
