Excuses are just low self-worth trying to take over your life!

We are capable of SO much more than we think is possible for ourselves.

No matter how big you think you can dream, The Uni-verse can dream and deliver bigger. This isn’t some egoic thought of needing to be the biggest thing in the world; this is a realistic call to action to live at our Highest Potential by giving our gifts to the world and letting The Uni-verse run our lives and determine the outcome.

Consistently, human history shows that many of mankind’s core assumptions about the world have been wrong. Let’s take a look:

The world is flat – wrong.

The Earth is the center of the Uni-verse – wrong.

Metal can’t float – wrong.

Man can’t fly – wrong.

Going faster than the speed of sound is impossible – wrong.

Women aren’t equal to men – wrong.

African-American’s are separate but equal – wrong.

An African-American will never be President – wrong.

What are our core assumptions TODAY that are wrong? The Uni-verse is a place FULL of POTENTIAL and POSSIBILITY – not just for mankind, but also for us in our lives.

Just like we have thought some crazy things in the past, in each of our lives we have limiting beliefs that, like the beliefs listed above, are just plain ole wrong.

What thoughts or excuses do you have about your life that are holding you back?

Here are some common ones:

I’m too fat.

I’m too skinny.

I’m too old.

I’m too young.

I’m under-qualified.

I’m over-qualified.

I don’t have enough time.

I’m not enough.

I’m not worthy.

I don’t have enough money.

No one will like this idea.

I will die if I fail.

All of these beliefs and many more start to come when we expand our possibility and step out of our comfort zones. Know this – your limiting beliefs and excuses are DEAD WRONG.

Here’s the truth.

You are enough, right now, as you are. You can schedule your time; find other ways besides money to make it happen. You will fall down and you will fail, but those things are just lessons. The only true failure is the failure to stop trying.

Your dreams, your desires are REAL and can BE if you take consistent action towards them. Every time we expand, we will be met with limiting beliefs.

Take the time to notice them and then just move on anyways. Let’s strengthen our minds to be conditioned to believe empowering thoughts instead of disempowering thoughts. Let’s train our minds and take action over time to prove these empowering thoughts right.

What limiting beliefs, excuses and the like are you buying into? Which ones do you want to throw away today and act in a different direction? Are you willing to burn in the fire of you heart’s desire for as long as it takes to make it happen? Are you willing to surrender the outcome to The Uni-verse?

Let me know, leave a comment on the blog.

Love & possibility from London,

Mastin

    Many limiting beliefs I am trying to overcome, if I do things now, when will I fit in having kids? If I do this will it be a waste of time? Am I good enough? Smart enough, pretty enough, talented enough? If I had that would I be able to accept it in the end with the belief I am good enough to have it? Oh yes, I struggle with this one a great deal, it’s my biggest road block and what I turn to TDL the most for, help in the self development stakes to one day believe that yes, I am amazing as I am and I am enough, period.

    I want to be better at playing the piano, and write more – but I tell myself I don’t have the time. I know that if I wanted to find the time, and wasn’t scared to, I would.

    Yet again, each day you seem to manae the anwer my unvoiced questions in my head.

    I have a screensaver on my phone which I look at daily:
    “If it’s important to you, you will find a way. If  not, you’ll find an excuse”

    The next step is to then try and rid yourself of those beliefs that make up those excuses, and Mastin is right – the Uni-verse puts forwards so many possibilties.

    Today I continued my job hunt. After one successful call, the lady noted a blip in my career history, down to something I felt was a previous bad decision I made in the past. After the call I started to beat myself up a bit about it. Then I told myself to stop. That I am capable, I can go out there and find the right job for me and learn from that previous mistake. The moment I took that positive step to keep trying and make it work for me… ping! in came an email from a previous interview with a brand new job application that they feel is suitable for me. Only a start. Yes. But a positive and encouraging step.

    Hey Mastin,  I’m loving the Daily Love.  I think I know where I am headed I just need encouragement and regular prompting.  I’ve made it ok to do it at a snails pace (though, I’d love the courage to turn up the speed).  Thanks for being there.  And being here…in London!  Are you ‘speaking’ anywhere?  I’d love to come see you x

    I’ve been wanting to charge more for my professional face-time, but thought I needed to finish the transition to selling my work also as information products first.  It just struck me last week, that this assumption is limiting.  I’ve been creating impact greater than my fees for decades!  So, I begin the new fee structure in two months after first giving clients the chance to renew contracts at the old rate.  Thanks for one of my new mantras and all sorts of luuuuv:  What assumptions do I need to unravel to move forward?

    Hi Mastin, yet another great read. Just want to share my thoughts in hopes it may help another. My experience has been…If I complain, I remain. What I percieve I recieve. I have had to surrender on a deep level to my higher self or Higher Power and I know thru faith and trust that I am right where I’m supposed to be. What I think and feel comes out from my mind into my words. It has been a conscience process to turn it over everyday to my Higher Power, let it go and then get out of the way. It’s quite simple but not easy. Both myself and my ego love to run on self-will, however, after years of control, manipulation, dishonesty etc..to get what I thought I wanted I finally got some joy, serenity, discipline, acceptance of self (then others), love for myself (then others). I have learned to keep an attitude of gratitude. If I want to maintain my current state of spiritual condition it takes action on a daily basis, willingness and humility. This of course is a process so be patient and give yourself a break! I am not where I want to be, but I’m certainly not where I used to be.
    Thanks for all you do for sooo many and remember: You can only keep what you have by giving it away. Big love and respect! jen (xnavygal)

    Thanks Mastin! A lot happened today that challenged me to look at my excuses. One of the false thoughts that  come over is that being a Malay woman, I can’t create a dynamic powerful platform to provide world class transformation for people all around the world. Being MALAY. I’ll kick that excuse in the ASS!!

    Its so not true! I am enough and being a woman (no matter what race!) I am all encompassing and powerful to manifest anything I desire!

    Mastin, this is marvelous. And also rather timely.
    I often find myself stricken that no one will like my writing, so why even bother?!! I am learning to consciously detach from the outcome of my creative pursuits, and to just keep on bloody-well writing. It is  a work in progress! Thanks for this message.

    I have a lot of limiting beliefs, but I have realized what you outline here in this article, that it’s just part of the game and we gotta’ deal with it. I don’t let it fool me anymore, like I used to. I’m more aware, and I know better now.

    a few examples of beliefs I have: I have to look confident, people won’t buy my products, people don’t care what I have to say, I won’t be able to deliver, etc.

    In the end, whatever the thought. It does not matter. I contradict my beliefs all the time, they’re not reality.
