You can do (almost) anything you set your mind to. You might never be able to will yourself into taking flight (unaided), but you can find a way to fly like the Wright Brother’s proved. Excuses are for losers.
There are always a million reasons to avoid doing something. Usually, there are zero good reasons to avoid doing something. Here are some common excuses and the way they’re debunked.
“I can’t exercise because of a prior injury.” I’ve heard this one among people with injury. If your “knees are bad” do you think they’re going to get any stronger with you sitting around all day and not using them? There are people who literally have no knees, no legs, and no arms. They find ways to exercise because they know it’s important. Now, there might be some circumstances where this excuse is valid, but I’d put it in the 1%.
“You don’t know what it’s like to be (insert whatever here).” This excuse is ludicrous. No, not every person can play every part in life. We’d better believe that every person has their battles and struggles. They might be different, but there is no point in trying to size them up. It doesn’t matter if it’s being a woman, a man, pregnant, a workaholic, or an alcoholic. Every person has their own set of roadblocks.
Some people simply choose to avoid excuses. Some choose to overcome their roadblocks.
“Too busy.” Having children and a job is a tough committment, sure. You’re not too busy for the things that matter. You’re never too busy for the things that matter. When we choose to sit on our rear-ends for an hour looking at celebrity baloney on social media and then say we’re “Too busy” or something is “Too hard”, we’ve got a problem bigger than a lack of time.
Excuses are for losers. Winners throw excuses to the side and make things happen. The Wright Brothers competed against people with more money, resources, support, and still beat them to the first flight. They were more determined. The Wright Brothers had more grit and willpower, and they’re not alone. They didn’t use excuses. Hopefully, neither will you.
