The list of excuses could go on forever, but every single statement has one thing in common: every single statement puts the blame on something or someone else, it defers responsibility to something outside of your control.  The only way to be successful and get what you want from life is to take responsibility and go get it.  Stop spending your life looking for reasons why you can’t do it, and just do it.


If you find yourself saying any of the things on this list, there is a good chance you aren’t living up to your potential.  If you spend time finding problems instead of solutions, if you spend time making excuses instead of taking action, if you defer action to tomorrow because you can’t do anything today: you are not reaching your highest capabilities.


No more excuses, no more limiting beliefs: if you want it, go get it. or at very least try hard to get it.  Most people who “try” to do it aren’t really trying to do it, people who will “get around to it” won’t really get around to it, people who have a reason why they can’t do it will fulfill their expectation that they can’t do it.  Stop making excuses for why it can’t be done and just do it.  It is that simple.

“If you want something, go get it.  Period.”- Will Smith
