Are you hiding behind reason?
Are you someone with logic and reason? Do you always have good excuses not to do something you need to do? Many people are unaware of their avoidance and hide behind their logic not to take the risk or leave their comfort zone. Are you one of these people?
Are we in denial?
Even with this in mind, I’m sure many of you still have good arguments for this observation. I am one of these people. Whenever I don’t want to do something I need to do, I always come up with many good reasons not to do it. I do not want to admit I am afraid. I am worried about the outcome. I fear I may not be able to do it. I am dreadful that I might fail. It is safer for me to appear logical and thoughtful by coming up with sound logic and explanations why I shouldn’t do what I need to do.
It’s about what you want
The outcome is I’m safe. But I also never achieve anything of significance. If you want to live your life in a safe zone, hiding behind your logic might be a good idea. However, if you do not want to live your life and keep doubting what, you might have to stop making excuses and do it.
Stop hiding behind logic and excuses.
First, check if you want a change in your life or not. If you do, it’s time to take action.
Secondly, ask yourself what the worst could it be. Why are you afraid?
Thirdly, ask yourself what means more: the possibility that you might win or the chance of losing. And are you willing to bet on yourself?
Fourth, ask yourself whether you want to spend the rest of your life asking yourself: what if? Or do you want to savor the chance of achieving your dream?
Fifth, ask yourself whether you believe in those excuses you made. What are you fearing?
Finally, put your fear and your desire on a balance scale and see which means more to you. Then, you can decide whether you want to continue hiding behind your excuses or not.
