There are two words that are guaranteed to mess up your life: Someday and but.

  • Someday I’ll be a runner.
  • Someday I’ll lose weight.
  • Someday I’ll start my business.
  • Someday I’ll purse my dream career.
  • Someday I’ll live my dream.
  • But I’m too old.
  • But I’m too young.
  • But I don’t have any money.
  • But I make too much money to risk.
  • But I’m not smart enough.
  • But I could fail.

Someday and but will mess up your life! Someday shrinks your life and but stinks up your life.

Yet when you stop using the someday excuse, you gain your VISION back and start seeing new OPPORTUNITIES again. When you stop using the but excuse, you take your POWER back and start taking RISKS again.

In Episode 016 of The Live It Forward Show, Kent Julian talks in depth about how the words someday and but disempower you. He then gives three specific actions you can take today to gain your vision and power back.
