Do you deny yourself by making excuses - why?


I have this discussion with a friend regularly, about our capacity to make excuses that limit us and prevent us from growing. Many people dream of learning something, or being able to do something - lose weight, get fit, learn a language, an instrument, write a book, change their situation... Is there something you are denying yourself by making excuses about why you can't have it or do it? Do you believe in these excuses, and why do you make them and keep making them?

    Then maybe you are not listening to your "no", as I mentioned in my comment below. If you don't want to do it, then don't! You have to listen to yourself. Maybe you trying to "talk yourself into" doing it when you actually don't want to do it all.
