How far have you gone on your plans this year? Have you taken off already? Let me tell you about mine, although I have not succeeded on all I planned to but I am going to be putting the last touch on one of the projects I set out to achieve this year. I have so many excuses not to start but excuses were not an option for me, I saw them as unproductive idea I don’t have resources to invest in.
“If you aren’t living the life you want, don’t redirect blame it is not the fault of the city you live in, your parents, your lover, your kids, your employer, or your President. Point the finger at the only person who has power to change your life – you!” -Paul Carrick Brunson
Until you accept the role you have to play to place you where you ought to be, you may have to stay as you are not created to be and that is no body.
Pastor Sam Adeyemi puts it that, when a winner makes a mistake, he says, “I was wrong.” But when a loser makes a mistake he says “it was not my fault”. Success is your responsibility, it is either your mind is set for it or your heart prepares you an excuse against it.
According to John Mason “Most people will learn from their mistakes if they were not so busy defending them.”
The next bend in the road of excuse is failure. If you are so used to going through this road, tracing your steps back would attract in itself a number of excuses.
The reason you haven’t started the business or pursue the idea isn’t the excuse you are giving but you. The reason you are not the best at what you do is you. How about that course, project, relationship and family, the more you give excuses and not take accountability, the more success eludes you.
Let me ask you again, what are your plans for the year, what goals did you set out to achieve in 2014 and how far have you gone? If you don’t start, you will never know how far you can go and remember, no matter what, there is always a way, only that you won’t find the way if you fail to start the journey.
