Stop making excuses

Excuses are the number one culprit to getting anything done.

I'm too tired to hit the gym today.

I'm feeling too lazy to write this article.

I haven't got time to work on this.

Excuses are just obstacles that are standing between you and your goals. Once you learn to cross this hurdle in life, you're unstoppable.

He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.
— Benjamin Franklin

Once you've got your eyes set on a particular thing, just go ahead and do it. There's no one stopping you from doing that.

You'll always feel lazy. There won't be enough time. Guess what?

You'll have to figure out how to get shit done. Excuses don't get you anywhere, hard work does.

I had 9 mins to get this article published by today. I did it instead of bailing out.

People who get shit done, get shit done, they don't make excuses.

You can't please everybody

Be grateful for what you have
