106 Excuses That Prevent You From Ever Becoming Great
106 Excuses That Prevent You From Ever Becoming Great
You can’t get the education required.
Maybe you don’t have internet, not everyone does (how are you reading this?)In any case, there are these buildings with a number of books on a variety of subjects called libraries.They’ll be thrilled to see you, and eager to help.If you invest the time, a near college level education awaits you.No it’s not as convenient as the internet, but learning anything worthwhile is seldom easy.Also reading books will help to fortify your attention span, which is vital to your success.
You don’t know the right people
Like education, people are more accessible than ever before.Nearly anyone you need to know can be found on Twitter, Facebook, or Linkedin.Be on a mission they can’t resist being a part of, and you’re half way there.With a little patience, and an awesome personality, you can connect with the right people.It won’t happen overnight, but it certainly will happen if you want it bad enough.
You don’t have the money
Finances are a sensitive issue.You might not have the money right now, but there are plenty of ways to increase your income.If you have to scour freelancer sites to aquire a hundred dollars here and there, do it.Any money you make freelancing, save it to put towards your dream project.Can’t afford to do that?Create a strict budget, and set aside a portion of your income.Don’t believe what the news tells you, money is everywhere, and people spend it every day.Right now, someone is hiring someone just like you.
You can’t afford to take a risk right now.
If not now, then when?This excuse is fear of the unknown.The reality is, you can’t afford not to take a risk right now.If an idea really benefits people, pulling on the reigns doesn’t just inhibit your progress…it prevents people from improving their lives.
It’s too hard.
Anything worth doing is hard.When was the last time “easy” had a huge payoff for you?
You don’t learn that way.
Babies all learn the same way, trial and error.They try, fail, and try again until it becomes second nature.Anyone with an infant learning to stand, walk, or crawl right now will tell you their kid won’t stop, regardless of the number of times they fall on their face.Babies don’t get the luxury of learning via webinar, audio, or having the process of written out.They see others do it, and try it themselves.As a former baby, I can say being receptive to any and all learning will greatly improve your ability to do anything you want.
Someone else is already doing it.
Which came first, Copyblogger or Problogger? Dyson or Hoover? Groupon or LivingSocial?Does it matter?Not really.
You don’t know where to begin.
The human brain isn’t designed to process information in a linear fashion.This is why when you dream, it doesn’t start “at the beginning” and you only remember how the dream ended, but never how it began.If you’re looking to pick up a new skill, usually “the beginning” will make itself apparent, regardless of where you start.Even better, because the way you process information is unique to you, your “starting point” could help you form a very unique perspective that people love.Also consider the other people who “don’t know where to begin.”By simply picking a place and chronicling your journey, you can inspire others to learn with you.
You’re afraid of what your customers will think.
It’s true, some changes should be gradual.But if you a drastic change is what you need, your customers are probably already bored and looking for alternatives.Do you think Apple feared their customer’s opinions before entering the Mp3 player market?Didn’t think so.
You’re afraid of what your colleagues will say.
Peer validation is rarely the deciding factor in any entrepreneurial story worth hearing.If you’re concerned with what your industry peers will think, don’t worry about it.Sometimes disruption is exactly what your peers need. http://chrisbrogan.com/

" initially started my relationship with Scott Donley who represented KellerWilliams. I didn't get to deal with him as much as I would have liked. there were some difficulties because a manufacture home was involved and an oversight regarding the location of Title papers which fell under 'vehicle..' but KW accepted responsibility for that in the end, so I have no complaints I do think they exerted themselves to help me, despite the fact that this was a small deal with relatively less value than others. ie. they showed integrity as far as I'm concerned there was a disappointingly low valuation of the property given by the lender's appraiser. Alex did what he could to bolster that up, and although it was out of his hands, I am pleased that he made the efforts he did to get the most money from our property."
