Excuses Begone

Excuses Begone, stealing a catch phrase from one of my favorites, Dr. Wayne Dyer. Last night I was doing a home yoga practice and not wanting to use my mind I decided to do a PODCAST. And this got me to thinking about today's technological age and all the advancements and resources available. Think back 10 years, you would have never been able to do a podcast of your favorite type of yoga, at your convenience, in your home, on the road, at 5 am or 1 am or 2 pm, anytime, any place, anywhere.

All one has to do is go to any store, be it a Target, online shopping or health and wellness website and you can find any piece of equipment, video, book, audio, online video to support your needs. Their is no reason to get bored, be lazy, make excuses 'well I have to find time to drive to the gym', 'the fees are expensive', 'it is too crowded', 'I feel uncomfortable working out around others', 'the classes are at times when I cannot go', 'I am not sure how to do it', etc.

EXCUSES BEGONE, it is there, in the palm of your hands, a click away, all for your consumption. This is a day and age when everything is suppose to be more convenient, more readily available, easier to access, easier to understand, more variety for the spice of life, and this is true.

Now, if you choose not to take responsibility, take action and accountability and you choose the life you lead then I understand with great compassion and please do not complain to me or others. However, if you want help, need help, direction, etc. then I know I am more than open to helping you, and I know there are number of other people and ways to do so as well.

The world is your oyster these days and times more than any. We are fortunate that we can go anywhere, talk with anyone and in some ways and formats. Take advantage of this and take advantage of the life you were born to lead, born to live.
