    No... one can make both excuses and money. Look for examples. I think they exist. Look at: politicians, athletes, and so on and so forth...

      Haha while I understand where you're coming from, I think we may have a very different representation of 'money'

      The ONLY politician I know to have money is the ex Governator. The rest of them have a slightly higher pay than actual people. And I have no doubt they do countless amounts of money dodgies. But really, we see them all in nice cars, which does not equate to having money... just STUFF. True wealth is not born with stuff. =)

    excuses are for idle and weak mind while the brave and active mind seek for solutions for challenges rather than making excuses.

    making excuses is prolonging the evil day to get quick money and then loose all of it and more on the evil day, so what is the gain, i think there is no gain in it.

    Nobodies perfect, i wish i could say that i'm always focused on the task at hand, but that would be a lie. And anyone who tells you that they are is lying as well. I can be focused completly on IM but other factors in my life are going to suffer, EX not having time to work out, or spend time with my daughter, you need balance and its a constant juggling act.

    The bottom line is you have to pick one and get on with it. Obviously, if you pick excuses your life is not going to go anywhere but in the current direction.

    However, if you pick money then life as you know it will change and so will the quality of it. You can make all the money once you discover how to get rid of excuses and limiting beliefs in your life.

    Until you discover how to rid yourself and your life of excuses and limiting beliefs that are currently holding you back, that's where you will remain.

    Well said. You have to take action to make the money. Excuses will land you no where. SO take action and make money.

    At least not at the same time, lol.

    As a stand-alone sentence this is a little too definitive for my taste. Obviously you can't make money by making excuses, but I don't really believe that anyone does EVERYTHING right ALL the time.

    We all screw up once in a while no matter how hard we try, and I believe that this goes for our efforts in not making excuses as well. Yet people are making money in this world.

    But I definately agree that making excuses doesn't help anyone accomplish anything and making money obviously isn't an exception.

    Its very true, and I'm a living example. I used to blame every product I bought. It sucked I thought and thats why I'm not making any money. Then I started DOING what it told. Didn't come right away, but after I kept plugging at it for a couple of hours a day I finally started making money. Some people look at little snippets like these and think they are just words thrown together. Not true. They are things that can make or break you.

    Totally agree with what you said, we make excuses if we cannot admit that at times we made mistakes. But let that failure be our lesson, to challenge ourselves to do better than what we have done.

    No more excuses, No more blaming for what happen, keep on moving forward.

    In the world of forex trading and chess game, learning from mistakes easily becomes what separates the newbies from the experts. When you make a mistake it records in your subconscious becuase of the pain involved. Well, the subconscious mind will eventually play out what you feed into it. Mistakes are not exempted, you know. The wisdom here is you quickly stop your subconscious mind from recording a negative thought which produces negative energy.
