Building a wall of excuses

Brick by brick we build our walls of excuses as to why we can not do something. Every suggestion is met by a wall of negative reasons to not do it. The mind sabotages as it perceives a risk.

It’s better to find reasons to do rather than to avoid. But that means stepping away from our mind and its ego.

This requires us to stop projecting forward, to stop focusing on the outcome, the end result. This is all involved in looking into the future and the uncertainty creates psychological fear, a thing we can not deal with now.

If we just focus on how we can start doing something now. Focusing our energies on just the first step, getting started. We will never know how anything turns out, however, we all know how to do that simple first step…the simple steps do not allow the mind to see any risk.

After all the future is unreal, so we just don’t know what will be, so worth just starting and not worrying about anything else. A series of tiny small repetitive steps create some of the most spectacular things. There is no opportunity to build a wall of excuses as we are focused and busy with lots of straightforward easy steps and we are in the moment enjoying the doing not in the mind and looking to why it won’t work.

Find a reason to build something not to build a wall of excuses to stop doing it.
