No lie: as I sit down to write this article, the tag on my green tea bag reads, “You can go amazing places when you quit stepping on the brakes.”
How fitting... Making excuses without learning from them is a whole lot like stepping on the brakes.
Let's be honest. Excuses are like armpits. Everybody’s got them, and they generally stink. I’ve heard them, seen them, and even made them. Yet, nothing stops success quicker than a case of the excuses.
The sooner you acknowledge the natural human proclivity toward justification and stop your excuses from stalling your success, the sooner you can turn your attention to celebrating your accomplishments.
