Effort Beats Excuses Everyday

"The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will."
-- Motivational action quote by Vincent Lombardi --

Welcome to The Motivational and Inspirational Corner Newsletter. We're really pleased to have you join us as we talk about this month's topic - how effort beats excuses every day of the week.

Some of the most destructive actions (or in reality -- lack of action) known to mankind are all of the excuses we casually toss out each and every day. Most of us make far too many excuses; generally way more than we ever realize. We have an excuse for not doing this and a reason for not starting that. We have an excuse (or two or three or four) for why we didn't get this and dozens more for why we didn't get that. Excuses, excuses and more excuses. Why in the world do we make so many excuses? I guess because they are easy to make and let us off the hook to boot - or do they?.

"The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desire brings weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat."
-- Action quotation by Napoleon Hill --

When you get right down to it, there are only two times in which you can start living life on your own terms - now or never. Which do you choose? Winners choose to make things happen, while the would-be winners make excuses. The winners get to live their dreams each and every day, while the would-be winners continue to just dream about them.

"People begin to become successful the minute they decide to be."
-- Action quotation by Harvey Mackay --

Taking action and turning our lives around requires that we make choices and then take some chances along the way. These "make or break" moments of truth, when you decide once and for all to give it everything you have and go for the gold, are precisely those moments when the players are separated from the pretenders. A winner is quick to do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done while the would-be winner looks for a way out. A would-be winners whines about the way the cookie crumbles and offers up yet another in an endless string of excuses -- while the winner just goes about his or her business and proceeds to make history.

"I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of a man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor."
-- Action quotation by Henry David Thoreau --

How about you? Are you willing to give life your very best shot each and every day? Are you willing to stop making excuses and start doing your absolute best instead? When you've finally had enough of second place finishes and a second rate lifestyle and decide once and for all to take full responsibility for who you are, where you are and where you are going; then and only then will you finally give excuses the heave ho and clear the path for your trip to the top.

"At first, dreams seem impossible, then improbable, and eventually inevitable."
-- Determination quote by Christopher Reeves --

Henry Ford once said, "You can't build a reputation on what you're going to do." Nobody cares about what you're going to do or for that matter, what you can't do. No, all they want to know is what you're willing to do -- right now. When you're willing to go out and give your very best effort day in and day out and kick excuses out of your life once and for all, you'll soon find yourself living that life you've always dreamed of living.

Here's wishing you a power packed, excuse free day!
