Stronger Than Excuses




“Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.”
George Washington Carver

Make no mistake, there is always a lie lingering in between a dream and too many excuses. And the lie is you lying to yourself.


The excuses and explanations will not do you any good. They do not add value to your life or improve the quality of it in the slightest. To get you where you wish to go in life requires more than just thinking and talking….it require focus and sustained action. And the great thing is, you are perfectly capable of taking whatever actions are necessary. You just have to choose to actually do it.

Before you make your next excuse, ask yourself this: What can I do to improve?

No one else can succeed for you on your behalf. The life you live is the life you build for yourself. There are so many possibilities to choose from, and so many opportunities for you to bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be. Now is the moment to actually step forward and commit to doing it.


Take responsibility for your actions, and you can live an incredible life of integrity. Take the time to create positive momentum, and to keep moving forward. …..It is all within your power to make things happen.


“If you really want to do it, you do it. There are no excuses.”
Bruce Nauman
