Lose the Excuses

Lose the Excuses | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

A very inspiring text to start a new day. I totally agree, apologies are never a good idea and they will never give us success in our lives. [note mg]


As a college teacher, I hear my share of excuses. They all start with, but you don’t understand…


  • People from my neighborhood don’t…
  • People of my race won’t…
  • Women can’t…
  • Poor people never…
  • People my age shouldn’t…


I’m a very short (5’1”) African-American middle-aged woman. I have tons of excuses not to succeed, take your pick.


Discrimination does not have my permission to enter my life; therefore I have no use for the excuse. You may use any one of them to fail if you’d like. In the meantime, I’ll keep succeeding...

The Mother of All Excuses – I CAN’T

The Mother of All Excuses – I CAN’T | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Making excuses is a bad habit that anyone can slip into. I’ve done it, you’ve done it, and now it’s time to get passed it. Sometimes we make excuses because we are trying to be polite, or at least that’s what we tell ourselves. Maybe somebody invites us to do something that we really don’t want to do. So, we politely say, “I would really like to, but I just can’t today.”

 

Why do we do that? Why not just say, “No thanks”?

 

The funny thing about making excuses is that we can always come up with excuses for why we do it. That’s pathetic when you think about it. If we want other people to be honest with us, shouldn’t we start by respecting others enough to be honest with them?..
