We started young … “I didn’t know …”, we said as toddlers.
We carried on through school … “The dog ate my homework!”.
We refined our techniques in University … “I pulled an all-nighter, fell asleep in the wee hours and slept through the alarm.”
In the workplace many have become masters … “The deadline was too tight, and Joe let me down so I couldn’t get it done!”
We can even go to websites that will give us ideas for excuses … this one actually also gives reasons not to use them!
Here is the bottom line …. IF YOU REALLY WANT TO MAKE IT HAPPEN, THEN YOU WILL FIND A WAY!
It may be HARD … but no one promised it would be easy!
It may appear like the obstacles are insurmountable … but if it was easy then how could you prove your worth?
Everything worthwhile requires effort, the question becomes are you willing to take responsibility for making it happen?
“If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right!” … Henry Ford
If you choose to ignore the words of Henry Ford, and the poster above doesn’t convince you then I will resort to the big guns with Nick Vujicic’s video … No Arms No Legs No Worries. Try giving Nick your excuses!!!
