    Default Excuses...

    Why do people make them, even when they want to try new things?

    And how do people get over it? What are strategies or tactics to do so?

    well, the first step is realizing that you have a problem.....

    evaluate yourself- did you do something wrong?

    What do you mean by this?

    I don't recall doing something wrong in the past, it's the fear that I'll do something wrong in the future.

    well, what are you afraid of happening?

    what personal characteristics of yourself could possibly be a cause of this possible future event?

    what do you really want and how much do you want it?

    I would try to answer, but I'm just too tired right now.

    P.S. If you get my brilliant humor, give me rep and prove how much more brilliant and humourous you are than all those other people who don't get it.

    Stop making excuses.

    Start small.

    It'll get easier.
