What Excuses Are You Using to Avoid Change?

In order to lead a life of wellness and fulfillment, you should consider all areas and examine where imbalances exist. Many people are aware of the disharmony in certain life aspects, such as health or relationships, but create barriers to transforming them.

Those who claim 'I won't' change are generally not ready to accept there is a problem. They may be in denial or just apathetic about the need to alter their lifestyle. Oftentimes family members or friends are mindful of the need to change a behavior but the individual doesn't recognize it.

Others who state 'I can't' are usually cognizant of the need for change but believe that the process is complicated and difficult. They typically generate a list of reasons why they can't move forward in the direction they would like to go.

The limitations that people place on themselves can be actual barriers or just simply excuses. The excuses can often be overcome by a strong enough motivator, such as a wake-up call from the doctor or separation from a romantic partner.

Examples of barriers to change are the following:

I don't have enough time.
I can't afford it.
I'm too busy with kids.
My work is demanding.
I don't know where to start.
I've failed in the past so why try again.
No one is there to help me.

You may feel sorry for yourself and complain about life areas that are constantly creating stress. But if you are not willing to do anything about it, the negativity will remain and that which you seek will always elude you.

It's also easy for people to put the blame and responsibility on someone else. However, the only person that can truly enact personal transformation is yourself. You have to own your life and create the change that needs to happen so that visible improvements can be seen.

When you repeat the same behaviors, you will get the same results. The answer to your challenges won't appear until you elevate your consciousness to a higher awareness. It is only when your underlying beliefs, thoughts, feelings, and actions shift that alternate outcomes present themselves.

American author Richard Bach states in one of his books, 'Argue for your limitations, and sure enough they're yours.' If all you have is excuses, then that's all you have. Remove the blinders and realize there are other possibilities if you allow them in.

The only person preventing harmony and happiness in your life is yourself. From researching online to hiring a life coach, multiple resources exist to help you on your personal growth journey. When you stop making excuses, change for the better becomes a viable option. You just have to choose it.
