Excuses




My old football coach would say "Excuses are like assholes, they all stink and everybody has one."

I loathe excuses. 

I hate everything about them. 

I'm not sure if it's because of my upbringing, or because of the weakness of the concept, but at any rate...they disgust me and should disgust you as well. 

Robert Kiyosaki says "If you want to be rich don't give yourself the luxury of excuses." 

I'd like to rephrase and remix. You can make money or excuses, but you can't do both. This is applicable to more than just income. If you want to really accomplish anything in life, don't give yourself the luxury of excuses. 


In order to succeed, you must stop allowing your excuses and stories to be bigger than your goals and dreams.

Stop waiting to build your dreams. They are inside of you, crying to get out! 


Take action! 


Timing will never truly be right to make your move.  If you look hard enough for an excuse, you'll certainly find one.  Some may be genuine, but where there's a will there's always a way! 


If you wait until you have every piece of the puzzle figured out before you act, you'll miss out on your entire journey. Don't get caught in the waiting game and in telling yourself stories about when this or that happens that you'll be ready to make progress. Those are just purposeless self talks that will leave you with nothing but cool could-be stories. You'll regret not taking action sooner.


Go get your blessings! No excuses! 


I'll conclude with this short poem. 


Excuses are tools of the incompetent
which create monuments
of nothingness.
Those who specialize in them
are seldom good in anything…. -

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!
