How many sound familiar to you?

I don’t want to be mean, but…

I don’t want to rude, but…

I don’t want to be sad, but…

I don’t want to be upset, but…

I don’t want to be negative, but…

I don’t want to be unhealthy, but…

But, but, but…

If you know how you don’t want to act then find ways to combat your behavior. You already know what it takes to be the person you do want to be, so stop being a victim to your ‘but,’ bury your excuses and become the one you do.

“Most people don’t have that willingness to break bad habits. They have a lot of excuses and they talk like victims.” – Carlos Santana
