Results or Excuses?
“You can have results or excuses, not both”
Far too often I hear people complaining about not seeing the results, or progress they were hoping for. Whether it’s work, school or fitness related, this quote can pretty much apply to anything. “I dislike my body, why can’t I be thinner?”, is a common complaint that I hear a lot. If you took all the energy you put towards hating your body into changing it, you would be amazed with the results. People will find excuses to skip the gym, cheat on their diet, etc, and then wonder why they haven’t achieved the results they wanted.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you simply put your mind to it and do everything in your power to stop yourself from making excuses. Obstacles such as excuses are put in our way to see if what we want is actually worth fighting for. If you find a way to let excuses take over, you more than likely do not want it bad enough.
There are only two options: make progress or make excuses. If you want to be successful there’s one thing you have to give away, and that’s your excuses. If what you’re working towards is truly important you’ll find a way, if not you’ll find an excuse.
