of which are absolutely perfect."
-- Harry A. Earnshaw (1878-1953)
Isn’t that the truth….
Everyone of us at one time or other makes excuses for what
we did, or did not get done. We cover our tracks with alibis.
I’m sure there is very valid, justifiable reason why
you gave up—right? There always is. And in truth, there
is a time to quit. But how many of us have stopped just because
we were tired of the struggle. It wasn’t because we’d
really lost—we just got tired.
Or how many things could have been done, but the lack of
knowledge gave a valid alibi, or the possibility of looking
silly, or the not making the time to do it, stopped us from
attaining our goal.
you know someone in your life who is really good at something?
Maybe not a
world champ, but really good?
We all have things that are beyond our capability to do,
but many things we could be great at.
about it. Is there something you excel at doing—quilting,
speaking in public, tennis, running meetings, raising children,
being a great friend, making money, spelling, or something
get about as good, as the amount of energy and time we
choose to focus on our project. You
didn’t give yourself
an alibi. You just took action. You learned and you excelled.
Keep this up in those things that mean the most to you,
and you truly become unstoppable.
The Best of Success to You,
