You Can Have Excuses or Results But Never Both

The message in this video by Eric Thomas is powerful. If you haven’t already watched it to it’s entirety, then I highly recommend you do so because it will help WAKE YOU UP. You will listen to the hard reality of not what you want to hear but what you need to hear about excuses.

Life in itself has taught me that excuses will never get you anywhere.

I can’t stress enough how important it is that you begin to take full responsibility for your own actions at ALL times. Too many people blame their circumstances on others when in reality they are the only ones to blame. Unless you were forced against your will, the decisions you made in life were entirely up to you.

You owe it to yourself to take full control of your life and become the change you want to see in your life. If it is important to you, you will find a reason. If it isn’t, you will find an excuse. It’s that simple.

My old high school history teacher, Mr. Goode, used to tell me and my class repetitively back in the days,

Excuses are the tools of the incompetent. They build bridges to nowhere and monuments to no oneClick To Tweet

Never did I understand much what he meant at first, until I started seeing firsthand how making excuses never got me anywhere. Remembering this quote that he embedded in my mind, I stopped making excuses and with time, started to see the results appear in front of my very own eyes.

That being said, what changes will you make in your life? What excuses will you stop making?

If you want to reap the benefits of success, push yourself a little harder one day at a time and watch how quickly better results start appearing in your life! Winners win. Losers lose. Become a victor. Not a victim.
