“I don’t have time”.
How many times in the last week have you said this to yourself?
I don’t have time to go to the gym.
I don’t have time to catch up on the course I signed up for.
I don’t have time to do breathwork.
I don’t have time to have sex with my partner.
This is the #1 lie we tell ourselves.
Do you notice how you only don’t have time for certain things?
You don’t have time to make healthy food, so you order a takeaway.
You don’t have time to go to the gym, because you’re going out for drinks with friends.
If the excuse of time is holding you back, listen up.
Time is a funny metric. If you’re saying “I don’t have time”, what you’re really saying is “it’s not a priority for me right now”.
If your go-to excuse is I don’t have time, write a checklist of WHAT your priorities are. This exercise is for anyone who KNOWS they have the time, but aren’t prioritising things which will help them reach their goals quicker.
Next, I want you to look under the surface of what is beneath this. Notice what’s holding you back from achieving these priorities. You may notice hear that it’s down to fear, victimhood, anxiety and self-sabotage.
It’s important to understand here that you are losing power here. Remember, if you don’t take different action, you won’t achieve the results you want.
If you’re reading his and it’s starting to ring true, here are 4 things you can do:
1. Identify the excuse you’re using. For example, I don’t have time, I don’t have energy, I’m too tired, I don’t feel good, my boss doesn’t let me do that. Write them all down.
2. Take a rational approach. Write down what is actually going on beneath the surface of each of these excuses. Is is because you don’t have time, or is it actually because you need to re-prioritise? Is it because you don’t have energy, or are you just being lazy?
3. Ask yourself, what time of women do you want to be? Do you want to feel empowered, energised, motivated, excited? Write down the version of yourself that you CURRENTLY are and then write down the version of yourself that you WANT TO BE. Once you have this written down, you can start to create a gap analysis. How far apart are these two versions of yourself? You should be able to see the clear indicators of the steps you need to take.
4. Take action. I can’t say this enough and I’ll be saying this until I’m blue in face. The only person that can create the version of yourself that you want, is YOU.
