Eject excuses

Excuses can entice you to give up. So make your purpose, your goal, your dream even more enticing than the most powerful excuse.

Excuses rob you of priceless time you could be using to create, to achieve, to make progress, and they give you nothing in return. That’s a bargain you cannot afford to make.

If you’re clever enough to concoct a reasonable excuse, you’re also smart enough to avoid doing so. Put your brainpower to work in your favor, and don’t make use of it to hold yourself back.

Don’t spend time explaining why you can’t when you can instead put energy into doing what you can. Challenges yield to good, sustained effort, so do the work, and keep it up.

Point your attention toward what’s possible. Invest your time in bringing the best possibilities to life.

Eject excuses from your life the moment you feel the impulse to make them. And move forward so fast they won’t ever be missed.

— Ralph Marston
