A life filled up with excuses leaves no room for success.

You know, I was going to get to this post sooner, but I just got so busy and then the weekend came and I had soooo much to catch up on... and then this other thing happened, and... hold on a minute!!

You don't really care about what stopped me, do you? All you know is: this is getting done now, and not sooner. All that hullabaloo up there is useless... in fact, it's kind of a downer, isn't it?

Most excuses are like that.

Oh sure, they'll make sense most of the time... and you'll get excused for them (I mean, isn't that what an excuse is there for?)... you might even get sympathy... and then get an earful of someone else's excuses, so you can both feel better about not doing something.

But that doesn't get you very far, does it?

While an excuse might get you excused from failure... it also gets you excused from success as well.

Excuses are like candy... they taste good at the time and even fill you up for a little while... but they leave you feeling empty (or sick to your stomach) and you want more an hour later.

Success is more filling... and fulfilling... and tastes far sweeter than any Nutty Excuse ever could.

So even if there are reasons why this happened, and that didn't... cut the junk. Save your hunger for the really big stuff in life.

Here's to your success!!

Keep the light on!
