The process of journaling as mentioned here has helped me to eliminate excuses. It has built my thought life to a level where it overrides an undeserving emotions that may arise. It replaces those emotions with thoughts of how I can do whatever God is leading me to do.
I also eliminate excuses by turning those reasons not to do something into reasons why I have to do it. For example, I used to say if I go after my goals then it will take away time from my family. However, I reversed my thinking and said if I get the task completed with a sense of urgency then it will actually give me more time with my family. I really feel this is why God wants us to protect our thoughts because our thoughts have the ability to bring life or death to our situations.
Last, I think one of the most highly effective ways to eliminate all excuses is by taking action. Sometimes you can think so much until it paralyzes you. Therefore, nothing gets done except for a lot of thinking. This will prevent you from reaching your desired destination. When you take action, there is no longer room for any excuses only space for faith and endurance. Remember it takes the right head space to get into the game but it takes consistency, commitment and heart to win it!
