Adopt a Zero Tolerance for Excuses
If you desire to accomplish anything worthwhile in life, adopt a Zero Tolerance for Excuses. Excuses are the currency of poverty. Excuses are the building blocks of the wall of failure. The road that leads to a life of emptiness is paved with excuses. Anyone proficient in making excuses will reap abundant regret. Be decisive in taking action and making things happen. Dream, plan and execute proficiently. Take responsibility for your actions and fight the urge to explain why you didn’t do what you were supposed to do. If you planned to do it, then do it. If you promised to do it, then do it. While you are busy making excuses, others are making a difference. The best way to waste opportunities is to make excuses. Even good excuses don’t impress anyone. Eliminate excuses in your conversations. Dare to be a man or woman of action and results. Winners find a way to do it. Losers find excuses for not doing it. “The lazy person claims, “There’s a lion out there! If I go outside, I might be killed!” Proverbs 22:13. Arise, face your fears and do what you have to do. No one has ever been remembered for making excuses. Just do it.
