One of the things you must learn in your personal life is to get rid of excuses. Do what you ought to do, say what you ought to say- at the right time, and in the right way. When you want to live a life of success and influence, you must shun mediocrity and excuses. Replace excuses with results. Be stronger than your excuses. Don’t let “one bad day” stop you. Don’t second guess yourself and make up excuses. Never worry about what others think about you; small daily improvements are the keys to staggering long term result. Success comes when your determination to succeed is greater than your excuses. Don’t be that person who always starts things but never completes them. The stone is broken by the last stroke; this does not mean that first stroke was useless – absolutely No! A river cuts through a rock not because of its power, but its perseverance. One of your greatest advantages is the greater One in you.
