Imagine what your life would look like if making excuses wasn’t an option. In today’s episode I show you a new way of looking at truth, and regaining your power.

Truth sets us free, and living a life without excuses is living in TRUTH and FREEDOM.

What do you do when excuses are no longer an option?

You stop making them!

You tell the truth.

When we make excuses, we’re NOT telling the truth.

So why are you making excuses? For yourself? For your life? For why you can’t…?

Your excuses and reasons are holding you hostage!

It’s time to become “unreasonable.”

Show up for YOU.

Commitment is bigger than excuse.


The most important commitment is the one you make with yourself.

First and foremost, you MUST show up for YOU! If you don’t, you’ll keep making excuses.

There’s so much power in living IN the possibility of TRUTH, and letting go of all the excuses that we want to give others, or ourselves.

When excuse is no longer an option, you make a commitment to be all in or all out.

Which do you choose?

It’s time to show up powerfully and profoundly.

Stop making excuses!
