The only way out is through. This is a hard truth, but it is always said with love. It's time to stop looking for reasons why things won't work and justifying crappy thinking with excuses and blaming. Most programs will have some things that fit great, and some that you struggle to implement. Sometimes a strategy works right away, and other times it has to marinate for a while. What we know for sure is that change requires repetition and responsibility. Here are some examples:

  • It's easy to blame a jerk for making you feel bad, but even if someone said something terrible to you, you are responsible for what you make it mean and how you react to it.
  • It's easy to think that since you ran out of paper in your planner, that you couldn't keep your schedule, but the reality is that you could make due with a marker and some cardboard if it really matters to you.
  • It's tempting to blame life circumstances for overwhelming you, but you still have the option to say no, take things one step at a time, reprioritize, or extend your timeline.
  • If you didn't get what you were expecting out of a relationship, book, or program it is still your responsibility to take what you did learn and put it into action.

You can blame, justify, excuse, and complain until the cows come home. Hell, you may even be right to do so, but how does that serve you? How does that get you to your next level of success? When you take responsibility for what you can control, you are open to solutions and you have control. You can change things that you take ownership over. When you choose to double down on why everyone or everything else was wrong, you stay in victim mode and rely on everyone but yourself to change the way you think and feel, and ultimately you relinquish your ability to get a better result.
