How can I overcome a life of excuses?

by ambassemma 21 replies
Excuses may appear very reasonable, but the truth is that, they are the reasons we give for failure.

“There are thousand excuses for failure, but never a good reason.”
…..Mark Twain

Excuses are attempts to hide away:
--- Inaction
--- Weakness
--- Lack of accomplishment
--- Laziness
--- Moral failure
--- Poor conduct

One of the major road maps to success and change is when we imbibe the mindset of refusing to embrace, accommodate, and tolerate excuses.

Remove the word “excuse” from your personal vocabulary and treat it as though it does not exist and is a taboo. You will see how active, proficient, successful and accomplished you will be.

“Rich dad hated excuses. He used to say, Excuses are a dime a dozen. That’s why unsuccessful people have so many excuses”.
……Robert Kiyosaki

Excuses are so cheap that unsuccessful people can afford so much of it – it is just a dime for a dozen.

The opposite of an excuse is to achieve!

When achievement is upper most in our heart, there will be no room for excuses. When we are comfortable with making excuses, we will be carefree!

“One thing we all need to remember is that a little effort is the best replacement for excuses.”
….Donald Trump

Don’t explain excuses, expel them to excel!

Expel excuses and respect commitment! That is the way forward.

    That's so true... we need to learn to take ownership for our own lives and realize that we create the outcomes for our lives. Great Post Mate

    Well, you appear to have no excuse to make stop making an excuse. Place a timer with you when you start a task and don't stop the task until the timer goes off. After a week or so you'll have a mental connection to the energy of getting things done. It actually feels stimulating to get things done.

    To overcome excuses is to disciplined one's self. It is also a person's decision if he or she will let herself become bandage of excuses.

    Good stuff ambassemma.

    I think making excuses and rationalizing behavior is the norm. Most people who are fat look around for people who are fatter and say to themselves "See, it's not that bad, I'm not as fat as Sally."

    What you really need to do is step on the scale and look at yourself in the mirror.

    Get honest with yourself. It might be the only way to overcome excuses.

    I agree completely. We don't have to take these failures and say they weren't good. We learn from them, how else do we learn? We learn from these mistakes or shall I say excuses, because it's what we're supposed to do. We are more intelligent than we like to believe, but we can change in many ways.

      Great reply man, I'm totally with you.

      I'll add that though this is so simple to some, others just don't get it.

      I hear so many people that speak more about what supposedly limits them than how they can create alternative solutions to typical life complex situations.

      Excuses are absolutely justification of failures, in most cases. I've tried to condition my mind to absolutely never have excuses for anything. It's kind of incredible how many excuses you see in other people when you become conscious of it.

      Great thread, I'm sure we all got some value from it. Awesome replies.

    Excuses are your way of avoiding to do what you need to do to succeed.

    Often excuses are legitimate reasons for why you won’t do what is necessary.

    To succeed and progress, you need to eliminate as many excuses as possible. Until your excuses are eliminated they remain as insurmountable barriers between you and the life plan you desire...
