I remember when I used to watch Judge Judy on T.V. – she used to use the phrase which is the title of today’s article quite often when a defendant in her court would say that she should have done something different to avoid having the automobile accident which brought them to her court – “I coulda, shoulda, woulda” done it. Yes everyone knows you should have, however the reality is that you didn’t do it. I wonder what would happen if when we’re at school we did not do our homework at night and simply said to the teacher, “I know I should have done it and if I had the time I would have done it, however I just didn’t do it.” I think we all know the answer to that question and it’s that we’d be in a whole lot of trouble.
My friend, the whole point of today’s article is this – people who succeed in life, are people who get things done in a timely manner and thus achieve all the predetermined goals and objectives they set for themselves. People who keep putting things off stating that “I coulda, shoulda, woulda” done something will never ever make it in life. No, they won’t.
As I have stated over and over in these articles over the years, winners are people of action – those who state their intentions, their goals quite clearly and indeed specifically, and then set out in a very determined manner to make them a reality in their life. Excuses are for losers. That’s right, those who are forever not doing the things they should do in a timely manner in order to achieve each and every one of their goals, will simply never make it to the promised land – no, they will not.
Yes indeed, those who succeed in life across the board are people of action – they’re doers. They do not constantly procrastinate whilst at the same time making all sort of ridiculous excuses and uttering over and over again the title of today’s article, “I coulda, shoulda, woulda” done it if only this or that had happened. No, my friend, instead please adopt the following slogan – do it now.
