Let’s lay all the cards on the table.
Excuses are bullshit. And, from this day forward, you will no longer make excuses in your life.
You will take responsibility. Got it?
Here are the most common excuses I hear every single day – and why they are simply bullshit.
EXCUSE #1: NO TIME
Here’s how it usually goes.. “But Ryan… I have no time to x, y, and z”
But you have time to watch football all day on Sunday?
Look, if you want to watch football. Or awful sitcoms for 3 hours a night – that’s fine. It’s your life you can spend it as you please. I am not judging you.
I love movies and go to the theater twice a week. Some people think I’m insane.
To each their own.
BUT, if you CHOOSE to spend your time watching football or the news or at the movies or watching porn – then you have no right to use the “I have no time” excuse.
You DO have time – you are just choosing to spend it elsewhere besides building your business. It’s your choice.
Be productive and guard every minute as if your life depended on it.
Learn to say “no” more.
And take control of your time. I have the exact same 24 hours in a day as you do – make sure you choose to spend it wisely.
EXCUSE #2: NO CONNECTIONS OR LIST
I love this one.. “But Ryan… I don’t have the connections or list you do. It’s so easy for you”
Do you think I started on the Internet with a big list. And a Rolodex of connections?
When I started my first site I had a list of ZERO and I was working full-time as a Recreational Therapist in a Children’s Hospital. Not exactly the top of the heap. People were not beating down my door to work with me.
I got told “no” more times than you can imagine.
We ALL start at zero.
Mike Geary didn’t have a web site or product when he bought one of my programs almost 10 years ago. Now his business brings in 8 figures a year. He too started at zero and didn’t make excuses.
Some choose to work their ass off to build their business – while others look at the people who succeed with jealousy and disdain.
You want it? You REALLY want success?
Go out and just f*cking get it. No one is going to do it for you.
EXCUSE #3: I HAVE NO MONEY
And finally the.. “But Ryan… I don’t have thousands to create a professional web site…”
You know what? Either did I when I first started. I saved up for 3 months to buy FrontPage98 and paid my 12-year-old neighbor Jonathan, $20 to help me setup my first site from my parents basement.
I wasn’t going to let the lack of start-up funds stop me from my dreams.
If I’m not mistaken, it’s FREE to create a Facebook Fan Page (get this guide to show you how).
It doesn’t cost a dime to go onto Facebook and join groups. And connect. And get involved in conversations.
You can create a free blog at wordpress.com.
You can join an affiliate program and recommend products.
You can connect two people together and get a 2nd tier commission.
All of this costs zero.
Heck, you can even go to your public library and use THEIR computer and Internet access – for free.
THE EXCUSES END TODAY
Get real with yourself.
Stop making excuses and start taking responsibility.
We all start at zero… it’s entirely up to you where you want to go from there.
