As I’ve set out to make my dreams cone true, I’ve come across so many who hold on to doubt that their own dreams are even possible and worth pursuing. Here are my top 9 excuses for why we don’t follow our dreams.motivational-quotes-excuses-dreams


  • I’m not _____ enough.

Remember your words have power. If you keep telling yourself what you aren’t then it will become the truth. So what ARE you?

  • I don’t have time to discover my passion, let alone follow it.

We tend to make time for the things that are important to us. Finding time to learn what you are passionate about or making time to follow your passion are worthwhile. Think of all the people you aren’t impacting because you’re not sharing your gift, passion and dreams with the world.

  • I’ll do it someday.

Simply put – we aren’t promised someday, today or Thursday. None of them are guaranteed. Stop putting your life off for time you don’t even have. {click to tweet}

  • I don’t know where to start.

Just start.

  • People will judge.

People judge no matter what you do or don’t do. Heck, they judge based on what they think you do. So, do you!

  • There’s no guarantee it will work.

That’s just life though, right ? Nothing is a sure fire promise.

  • I’m too young/old.

No such thing. I just read about a 15 year old tech millionaire business owner. Too young? Colonel Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken fame started his business in his elder years. Too old?

  • I don’t know what I’m doing.

No one starts anything knowing everything. You just have to go for it and learn along the way.

  • What if I fail?

Better question: What if you don’t?

What’s your dream and what’s holding you back?
