Diagnosis

Alright, you’ve run the gambit of excuses commonly uttered by the unsuccessful. If you came across any excuses you currently cling to or believe in, then you’ve just self-diagnosed yourself with excusitis. If this is the case for you, don’t be too alarmed, all hope is not lost. In fact, this knowledge is power, because now you know where you stand. But more importantly, now you know you need a cure.

The Cure

So what’s the cure for being susceptible to lame excuses? Believe it or not, the cure for excusitis is quite simple. The cure is belief. When a person believes that anything is possible for them, they won’t allow themselves to be duped by an excuse. Belief allows people to short circuit thoughts related to them not being good enough, smart enough, rich enough, or just enough to accomplish something. Belief triggers within us, a knowing, that regardless of any perceived limitation, we can use our minds and resourcefulness to circumvent any and all obstacles.

Find a Way Not an Excuse

Final Thoughts

Success is your birthright, but only if you believe it to be so. So, crush your excusitis, zero out your excuses, and believe… truly believe that you can be, do, and have whatever it is you want in this life, and have it you will.
