Excuses Be Gone
Excuses are nothing more than contemplation. Yes, we contemplate what we cannot do. We contemplate what we do not have and we contemplate why we cannot have it. Now let’s take a look at what contemplate means in its simplest terms; contemplation is the continual use of your thought process. Our thoughts are the very things that begin the process of manifestation or materialization just as a seed begins the process of a flower.
The process of ridding ourselves of excuses is easy, but because we like to complicate things most of us will not take the time to put it into practice. To rid ourselves of excuses we must learn to practice contemplating what we intend to manifest and then to simultaneously detach from the outcome. It’s what I like to call being committed to the process rather than being addicted to the outcome. Aristotle said “Contemplation is the highest form of activity.” Therefore as we habitually sit and contemplate our justifications, our excuses become more powerful than the action that we may want to take.
Dr. Wayne Dyer listed 18 excuses that most of us use in our lives that keep us from being our true selves, and he accompanied the excuses with an affirming statement to counteract the excuse. Dr. Dyer suggests that as the excuses arise in our minds that we practice counteracting them by speaking the affirmation immediately. This is what I like to call “retraining the brain” because it is our dominant thoughts which is our point of attraction. Having said all of this, we must first be aware of our thoughts in order to counteract them. Become the diligent watcher or observer of your thoughts and then you will be able to move into the affirmations listed below:
Excuse 1: It will be difficult. Affirmation: I have the ability to accomplish any task that I set my mind to with ease & comfort.
Excuse 2: It’s going to be risky. Affirmation: Being myself involves no risk. It is my ultimate truth and I live it fearlessly.
Excuse 3: It will take a long time .Affirmation: I have infinite patience when it comes to fulfilling my destiny.
Excuse 4: There will be family drama. Affirmation: I’d rather be loathed for who I am, than loved for who I am not.
Excuse 5: I don’t deserve it. Affirmation: I am a Divine creation, a piece of God. Therefore I cannot be undeserving.
Excuse 6: It’s not my nature. Affirmation: My essential nature is perfect and faultless; it is this nature that I return.
Excuse 7: I can’t afford it. Affirmation: I’m connected to an unlimited source of abundance.
Excuse 8: No one will help me. Affirmation: The right circumstances and the right people are already here and will show up on time.
Excuse 9: It has never happened before. Affirmation: I am open and willing to attract all that I desire beginning here and now.

Excuse 17: I am too busy. Affirmation: As I un-clutter my life, I free myself to answer the callings of my soul.
Excuse 18: I am too scared. Affirmation: I can accomplish anything I put my mind to, because I know that I’m never alone.
When we rely on our excuses, what we are really doing is allowing our false self to contemplate the very things that we do not want. Which is why the very things that we do not want are those that come to us so quickly and frequently? This is the Law of Attraction at work, and it’s working whether we believe it or not.
