Kiss + Tell: Kiss Your Excuses Goodbye - I'll Tell You How
by Christina Waschko
Who doesn’t like this tagline? Who doesn’t like kissing? Now, honestly? Smootch it any way you like, smack it on your lips, with your hands or as a blow! Kissing is the way to go!
As you might know this is the credo for The Motherpreneur and the theme for Motherpreneur TV! ?
Anybody can kiss! But does everybody know how to kiss excuses goodbye?
Here is a fool proof way to get rid of any obstacle that stands in between you and you big, fat or small’n silly dream/idea!
Get yourself a piece of paper, a pen and cozy up with a lovely latte, margarita or your favourite libation!
Are you ready?
1) What is your dream/idea/goal?
2) What are the reasons- excuses- that holding you back from going after it?
3) Now, take each excuse and dissect it, just like you did in biology class!
Add at least 5 reasons to each excuse you are using!
And last- but not least, ask yourself,
4) What is the worst case scenario that can happen after I kissed this excuse goodbye?
Ask yourself: “Can/could I actually live with the outcome?
If you can- go for it!
And if you can’t, ask yourself, realistically, what are the chances that this is actually going to happen?
If you can still say,”True, this is a bit far fetched – but I could still live with it”, then go for it!
And if not, scrap this big, small, silly of fat dream off your list! Don’t look at it again! Move on!
Move on to your next big- or small thing on the list!
Only you will know the answer to all of these questions!
Will you do it?
Whatever happens, now that you are equipped with this easy peasy decision making formula, remember, just because it’s your worst case scenario, it doesn’t mean it needs to become true….just saying!
