Today I want to talk about if we are having the same conversation a year from now. I talk to a lot of people on a daily basis, so I come across this a lot. There is one woman in particular with whom I had the EXACT SAME conversation one year later. While we were talking, she was telling me about some challenges that she’s facing in her life. I said to her, “Do you want to be talking about this again next year or are you ready to change your life?” She replied, “Sausha, we did have this conversation before already.” And then it dawned on me that she was right - we had a talk with each other the previous year and we had talked about the exact same challenges! She then said, “I just can’t keep living my life like this.”
Then I asked her, “How do you feel right now?” And she said that she felt silly and stupid for not doing what she needed to do to change her life a year ago. She had told herself all of the usual excuses - that she didn’t have the time or money to invest in herself in order to overcome her challenges. I told her that if she wants something bad enough, she will overcome her excuses and find a way to make it happen. And I told her that I completely understand because I’ve been there too.
I understand why she and so many other women have these excuses. That’s our monkey mind talking and keeping us from the things that we desire most in our lives. That’s what our brain has trained us to do. It has trained us to stay safe. I have practiced a lot of personal and professional development to get me to the point of overcoming my own excuses and now helping other women do the same.
I know this to be true: when something is put in your head or on your heart, it is meant for you. It’s not put there to make you feel bad. It’s not put there to make you feel small or like it is impossible. It was put there for a reason and it will continue to surface and resurface and resurface and resurface (I think you get the gist haha!) until you do something about it.
Listen to the full episode to hear all about the most common excuses we have for not changing our lives and what I recommend doing to overcome these excuses!
