Today’s word is excuses. Today’s quote is “Excuses are lies we tell ourselves so it doesn’t have to be our fault.” George Washington made a comment that was amazing, “It’s better to offer no excuse than a bad one.”
Excuses suck! That’s my quote! I am so tired of excuses. Now let’s ride my bus a minute. The career excuses bus, for example, so many people are in dead-end situations in their career, yet they always make excuses. They have a million excuses about why they can’t change.
Look in the mirror! This isn’t a dress rehearsal. Make a change. You want to live your life with some happiness. You want to wake up and like what you’re doing.
Oftentimes people use the excuse of disliking their career as an excuse for the financial bus. I can’t change my work, I can’t afford it. My advice is to make changes with your financials.
Then there is no excuse for your health. I see people eating so bad! What are they thinking? Take care of your health! Stop making excuses, because you have friends and family that love you. Protect your longevity.
And then relationships, I was in a difficult relationship, we have three beautiful children, then things got difficult and we had to go our separate ways. It’s not easy, but it can be done and at least you get to a better place.
I am in sales, and I manage people. You can put two people beside each other and watch to see which one makes excuses. One of them you say to them, “Come in at 9 am” and they come in at 8 am. On the other hand, you tell the other one 9 am and they come in at 9 am. One of them works late, one of them leaves early. They have the same opportunity one succeeds, one doesn’t. The one that doesn’t, blames it on everybody else. Excuses, excuses, excuses!
Remember, “99% of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.”
If you really want to do it, you do it. There are no excuses. People with integrity do what they say they are going to do, others have excuses.
Stop Making Excuses
