The truth about excuses

leave a comment »


Excuses keep people from so many things that would make their life better. Chances are pretty good that you’ve missed out on some of the greatest moments in your life simply because you let an excuse knock you out or keep you from even getting started with stuff you needed to do. Even when the ideas of inspiration come within you those same excuses have robbed you and taken that idea away. It sucks. It really does. You could have really been so much more.

But here is the truth about excuses today. When you can recognize this about excuses you will have more power to do the things you really want and achieve the success you deserve. Now I will start with one caveat and a last thought on why beating excuses is so important. Heres the caveat.

The number of excuses you chose to eliminate will be completely up to you. Beating excuses is not a one time event it will be something you have to do again and again and again. Everyday. Maybe even multiple times a day. It will not be easy. You will have to be aggressive and recognize these excuses every single time they show up.


And here’s the thought. There is an old Samurai saying that says “when we conquer the enemy within there is no enemy with out that can defeat us.” You’ve already heard that success is an inside job. Well, so is defeat. You need to decide right now that you will master the power over excuses so that you can create the things in your life that you really know want and deserve. You can develop your ability to reign over and destroy excuses. It is a habit that can be cultivated and built. So get started now!!!

Here’s the truth about excuses that I promised you.



In other words you only create an excuse when you actually have or had the power to do differently.

For example, If you say I will do it next time. Right now I just don’t have the time. You actually do have the time. You are actually just making a choice that the item you are excusing yourself from is just not priority.

If you say I am not making the phone call they probably aren’t there right now anyways. You actually have the power to make the call and you don’t always know if they’ll be there or not.

We only make excuses for something we could do. We don’t make excuses for things beyond our power. We don’ t make excuses for the weather, gravity or the way grass grows. We only excuses what we could have either done better or the things that we could do. Think about that next time and just get started.

Besides excuses never built anything.
