Excuses will never improve your situation. Do any of the following sound familiar? I don’t have the money, I have kids, I don’t have kids, I am married, I am not married, I have to find balance in my life, I am overworked, my manager sucks, people don’t tell me the truth, no one told me, I’m depressed, I’m sick, my mom is sick, traffic is terrible, the competition is giving its product away, I have such bad luck. . . . Bored yet? I know I am! Ask yourself, will any of these excuses ever improve your condition? Successful people simply don’t make excuses. They are actually quite unreasonable when it comes to providing reasons. The quality of being rare is what makes something valuable. So anything that is plentiful has very little worth. Excuses are one item that people seem to have an almost endless supply of. Because they are so plentiful, they have no value. Because they do not forward your desire to create more success for yourself, they are worthless uses of your energy.
