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.

Hi Emmanuel

Failure is just a stepping stone en-route to a better place and we should be careful not to attach any stigma to it.

Its all too easy to miss out on today whilst beating yourself up for a yesterday that God has already forgiven you for.

When in pioneering mode you should demand occasional failure as the only true indicator you are conquering fear and taking the risks you need to take to break free of your current situation.

Many people have no need to change. They are doing what suits them and what suits God.
Those that do want to change can overcome fear through:
*Faith
*Forearming
*Fellowship
*Friendship

Maybe they need the courage to take a class, visit the doctor early enough or take a stand against violence.

They will be helped by a clear goal, complete honesty about why they really arent moving forward and the consequences of not doing anything, and commitment to action they've selected taken after fully assessing their options.

And if they do suffer a setback on the way then its worth remembering that F.A.I.L. spells 'from all I learn' and is a blessing in disguise.
