Whats your excuse?

You must have heard this saying, “Excuses are tools of the weak and incompetent, used to build monuments of nothingness. Those who excel in it seldom excel in anything else but excuses.

As harsh as those words sound, I have come to realise that they are mostly true because if we really wanted something in our lives, if we truly have set our hearts and desires on a goal, we will do everything in our power to make it happen. We will unleash our energies in finding a way when there seems to be no way.

Excuses come into the picture when we are not quite committed to seeing through an endeavour that we really do not desire. For those who have a hobby or have started a business, don’t you find that you can give excuses for not showing up at your 9 to 5 job, yet you would probably work all night at that hobby or business.

We should move our lives to the place where we are fully invested in all that we do so that we never show up with excuses. For the things that we love we are never interrupted by excuses but only emergencies. Let that be your new way of life and replace all your excuses with only real emergencies.
