Dear Travel Agents/Advisors,
How many times have you heard the phrase,“I can’t do it!” from others, or even yourself?
If you ask me what my biggest pet peeve in life is, it’s when I suggest something to a person and that person replies with, “I can’t do it!”
Did I ask you to jump off of a cliff? Did I ask you to slash your own tires? No!
I often tell people how I built my business from nothing into a big company. I also like to tell people how I stopped eating gluten and lactose and went from size 16 to size 4. I enjoy telling others how I started exercising and now I am extremely fit from walking an average of 10 miles a day. (These steps are made up from both walking and dancing.)
Then I hear, “Wait to you get to be my age!”
“No bread? I can’t do it!”
“No cheese? I can’t do it!”
“Exercise? I can’t do it!” And so on, and so forth.
I’ve heard so many excuses, like “I have no time,” or “my wife prepares my lunch,” or “my kids have dairy so I need to drink milk with them.”
I could actually write pages of the excuses I’ve heard! I love the ones from people saying something about their age. My mother-in-law is 89 years young, and walks everywhere. Another lady I know is 92 and takes Pilates 3 times a week. and she has been doing it for 20 years, (do the math!)
People can find always a place to exercise. I love Pilates and with the help of my personal instructor Laura Konz, I’ve been able to exercise on a plane, and also in my room on a cruise.

Life is beautiful for those who want to see its beauty. Life is priceless for those who treasure it, and believe in it.
Laugh at your own mistakes, and do your best for YOU. No excuses! Your own excuses just hurt you, (even though they are MY pet peeve LOL)!
To a good and enjoyable life! Cheers!
