A Simple Technique to Eliminate Your Excuses

When we get really honest with ourselves, we realise that many of the ‘reasons’ why we haven’t done something, or don’t do what is necessary, are actually ‘excuses’ that we buy into more than we should. In this podcast, Sam and Chris provide a simple yet powerful technique to say goodbye to the barriers we create and hello to empowering action.

Put this technique into practice immediately and you’ll find your barriers are no longer as high or as strong, and taking action becomes a whole lot easier.

We’d love to hear how this works for you and if you have alternative versions that other ActionPodcast listeners would benefit from as well. Leave a comment on this podcast!

A life of your choosing (for the most part), a life on your terms (for the most part), a life filled with more laughter, happiness, health and success.

I’ve learned that we – the average, everyday person – are capable of changing our lives in numerous ways, dramatic ways (!) and faster than most might believe.
