04: Get Out of The Lame Excuses Zone

If you want to be successful, you have to get out of your own way with some of the excuses that are coming out of your mouth. We don’t even realize what we say sometimes.

Join Debbie Allen to hear how negative self-talk kills opportunities for success and learn all about the “Lame Excuse Zone”.

Show Highlights:

  • You must remain on high alert against negative self-talk.
  • Otherwise, it will throw you into the “Lame Excuse Zone”.
  • Debbie gives examples of excuses you might tell yourself in order to avoid taking action, and these excuses often aren’t even logical. Do you recognize any of these excuses?
  • If you have limiting beliefs, it’s easier to fall into this trap.
  • Limiting words are so damaging, it can make one feel hopeless.
  • Lame excuses are a habit, and you have to have awareness of them to break the habit.
  • Debbie explains the difference between excuses and limiting words.
  • When you get stuck in your story, stop it! Nobody wants to hear it. Stop with the victim mentality.
  • We all have down, funky days, but you have to be aware to limit the negative.
