When you make excuses, your excuses make you. Excuses allow you to live in denial of your true potential - your Infinity. Your excuses are a way to except a very limited life and version of yourself. You are only as strong as your weakest excuse.
I'm here to tell you, that's not who you are. It's time to take your life back and discover how powerful you are and always have been.
When people find out what I do (Personal trainer, Nutritionist, Life Coach), I get asked a lot of questions from these curious minds. It doesn't take long to realize that most people are asking me questions to validate the excuses they have on autoplay in their mind. They complain about being stuck, bad past experiences, unsupportive people in their lives etc. What they fail to realize is they are the common denominator to all these scenarios.
Fortunately or unfortunately for them, life put me in their path and now in yours too. I know this may be my only shot to help them and you realize your excuses are invalid. Let me help you by shining the light on the awareness they and you need to get moving, to start living a life of no excuses!
Just imagine how amazing your life could be if you stopped making excuses and owned your BS! Excuses are simply bullshit disguised as words. There is not one ounce of truth behind any excuse no matter how long, how loud or how descriptive you make them. I can no longer allow you to lie to yourself and argue for your limitations. Limitations only exist in your thoughts. Your thoughts will determine your actions or the lack of action.
Here are some common excuses I hear often:
Here is what is really being said underneath all the excuses:
Let's face it, time and money are only an issue if you make them. You will always find both the time and the money for what is important to you. Every excuse you have ever made and now moving forward continue to make denies you an opportunity to see how amazing you and your life can become right now. Stop denying yourself the very infinity that is pulsing through you as you read these words. It has been there since the moment you were conceived and has never left you nor will it ever leave you. Only you can deny it's existence.
You always have 2 choices on the road to personal empowerment and self-discovery.
Choice 1: You can continue to hold yourself back, blame everyone/everything in your life for what's not working and continue to be a shell of a person with a less than ordinary life. Yet remember YOU are the common denominator. When you make excuses, maybe its time to realize, you get what you get so why be upset.
Choice 2: Drop all of your excuses, blame and complaints. Begin today to tap into the unlimited infinite potential alive within you. See how amazing life can be when you decide to take care of your Mind, Body & Spirit.
When you decide to stop living the lie of who you are not, the truth of who you are comes through in most fulfilling ways. It takes much more energy keeping an illusion alive than living your truth. Truth takes no effort, it simply "is."
Don't live another moment regretting what should have been or what could have been. You have the power to decide right now what will be.
If I had to wait for the money or time to arrive to make my changes in my life, I would not be the person I am today typing these words with such power, confidence and conviction. I've been where you are and where I am now is no comparison. It is amazing and you deserve to experience it! I hear your words, I know your pain but it can only stay that way if you choose it. It doesn't have to stay that way.
The Miracle of You
by Denise Povernick
What is a Miracle? According to Dictionary.com:
Let me invoke here what I call the my Law of Opposites. My Law of Opposites states, whatever you have been taught by something or someone outside of yourself through words or actions not your own personal experience -> the opposite is true until you filter the belief through your own personal knowing and experience. That’s a BOLD statement. You will only experience in this reality what you believe . Most of your beliefs are based on someone else’s teaching not your own personal experience. In essence, you are taking their word for it. Therefore, most people do not think for themselves (even though you think you do).
The above definition could not be the further from the truth. In believing this definition, you are denying yourself the ability to experience the infinite number of Miracles that happen right before your eyes everyday. In this limiting definition and belief, you are also are denying the Miracle of each moment. Most importantly, you are denying the Miracle of You.
Every person, place, thing, event etc is a Miracle. Everything and everyone is synchronistically right on time.
Albert Einstein said it best:
Do you realize that this moment, right here, right now has never been experienced since the beginning of time like it has now? Now in this moment and now this moment etc. In each new moment of Now, you are brand new, there have never been 2 of the same versions of you ever in all of your existence. You are not the same person you were 1 second ago, 1 hour ago, 1 day ago, 1 week ago, 1 month ago or 1 year ago etc. You get the idea. This is true for everything and everyone.
Can you begin to understand how your beliefs are limiting? If you begin to see each moment and each person for the miracle they are, and each moment in all its newness, you realize you have never been, done or experience anything the same way twice ever!
With this Law of Opposites shift in consciousness, the above definition begins to become your truth. Initially, to accept the definition that a Miracle is the rare event that’s very improbable robs you of knowing your Divinity and Infinity. But with the consciousness shift, that improbability makes each moment, person, event etc the true miracle it really is and always has been. You live a life of nonstop miracles flowing through life as a nonstop miracle. This is the Divine Paradox. The opposite of the opposite is the truth.
Truth, Divine Paradoxes, Infinity, Thinking for Yourself (or there lack of), and Laws of the Universe are topics to be addressed in my future blogs. How deep do you want to go? I can take you there.
Take nothing I ever say, blog, or teach as truth until you take it within yourself and experience as your own truth.
For now know this:
Miracles never happen outside of you. Nothing ever happens outside of you because here is nothing outside of you. You are a miracle’s expression in human form of Divine Infinity.
