Action – Not Excuses

You need to take responsibility for your actions. You and only you can control what you do everyday. Sure, you can ask for help but even then, it is up to you to utilise that help effectively. You have the power, you have the control over your life, so don’t play the victim when you’re not getting the things that you want. Other people have no duty to you. It is not up to them to do things for you, get things done for you.

Take control and ownership of your own damn life. Be accountable for your actions, or lack thereof, because when you aren’t getting things done, you only have yourself blame. You need to take action; to be proactive; to stop being so lazy. You need to stop finding excuses and start making priorities!

In the pursuit of your endeavours, laziness will not do. Take some fucking pride in yourself and own up to yourself about what you are doing wrong and where you need to do better. Be brutally realistic with yourself – sometimes, it’s the only way to grow.

You can’t whine about how you are not achieving anything when you’re not actually taking any proper action. There is a massive difference between intending to do something, and actually fucking doing it. So go and do it.

If you’re not even helping yourself, then you are your own worst enemy.

If you really wanted something, you would find a way to make it happen – not an excuse. By telling yourself that you are too tired, that you will do it tomorrow, that you are not ready, that you don’t have enough time; you are only hindering yourself. And you need to stop that right now.
