The “I’m Too Busy” Liar

| March 15, 2014 | 0 Comments

The Problem:

The “I’m too busy” Liar is a good person that likes to blame their lack of a
healthy lifestyle on a busy life:

He or she works a full time job, gets busy with school, kids, or
after work clubs and can never find the time to cook a healthy meal or exercise.

•“I would love to get healthy, I just don’t have time. I’m just way too busy” is one of the most common excuses I hear.

There are a few quotes I’d like to share with you.

•“Nobody believes your excuses except for you.”
“Instead of saying ‘I don’t have time to ____” you have to say “____ is not a priority.”

The Solution:

You need to decide what your priorities are.   Fix your thinking:
• “I’d love to work out, I just don’t have time” becomes “exercising isn’t a priority.”

• “I’d love to eat healthier, but I don’t have time to cook” becomes “eating healthy
isn’t a priority.”

• “I don’t have time to travel” becomes “traveling isn’t a priority.“

Decide what is a priority in your life right now.

Suddenly those three hours of TV each night are no longer a priority.

Suddenly that extra cupcake at work isn’t as important.

What’s important to you? Every action you take and every action you don’t tells you what your
priorities are. Analyze your day and figure out where you can fit in your actual priorities. Put them
in your calendar so there is no wiggle room for you to bail out. Then make it happen!
