Excuses That Keeps Us From Becoming Successful by molisk(f): 12:46pm On Jan 15, 2013
“Excuses are the tools with which persons with no purpose in view build for themselves great monuments of nothing.” ~Steven Grayhm




We are capable of accomplishing anything and everything our minds can imagine! Then what is holding us back? What prevents us from taking our first step? What we consider to be the CAUSE of failure or BARRIER to the destination is nothing but various masquerades of EXCUSE. Excuse convinces you to accept failure over success. It justifies your inaction and fear of failure, makes you arrogant to mark error and cocky to identify the opportunity, finds impossibility in anything and discourages you from transforming your dreams into reality.

1. It is very difficult

2. I am too young or too old to go for it

3. Nobody takes me seriously or I have been rejected

4. I am not that much educated

5. I don’t know how

6. I don’t have time

7. He/she is responsible for my failure

8. It is very risky

9. What if/could/would

10. The idea is not perfect or might not work.

Well said. Sometimes taking a thoughtful decision needs you to take time. One can call it procrastination or whatever.

Re: Excuses That Keeps Us From Becoming Successful by fellis(f): 3:50pm On Jan 21, 2013
Some of these excuses can also protect one from failure, excuses like
-It is risky (it might actually be risky and meant to be avoided)
or
-It might not work. Because whatever plan it is might actually fail and lead to loss of money and time.

in as much as we want be successful, we must be successful God's way. not to engage in illegal, immoral business or engaging occultic groups for money or wealth. we must be hardworking, do business that are legal and decent. then we can say we are truly successful in God's eyes

1. It is very difficult ---- of course it's very difficult to make it without believing in myself.

2. I am too young or too old to go for it ----- of course am too young to lose hope on becoming a billionaire.

3. Nobody takes me seriously or I have been rejected ----- of course nobody takes me serious but who cares, am doing great in my business

4. I am not that much educated ----- of course am not that educated but my business is fetching me money more than the educated ones.

5. I don’t know how ----- of course i don't know how but i employed an expert to do some works for me.

6. I don’t have time ---- of course i don't have time, am busy with my business making money

7. He/she is responsible for my failure ---- of course she was, but nevertheless i dumped her and moved on.

8. It is very risky ----- of course it could be very risky to jump down from mainland bridge for 10k

9. What if/could/would ---- of course what if am going to lose a huge amount, well let me invest little for a start

10. The idea is not perfect or might not work. ----of course the idea of killing for money is not perfect and might not work, so let me stick with my importation business because am making millions annually.

@ OP, now tell me how am a failure??
