We can always find a reason not to pursue our dreams, not to take action, not to stick our neck out. Our reasons seem perfectly well reasonable.
We can always justify why we can’t do something – especially to ourselves. Living a life of excuses can have very serious and lasting consequences. Not only will excuses prevent you from reaching your full potential, but people around you will also hold you back from recognizing opportunities, talents and skills you might have, to help you overcome your problems.
If you don’t challenge yourself to reach new levels, you will never really know what you’re capable of. New opportunities lie hidden around every corner, however you will never find them if you riddle your mind with constantly finding reasons to make excuses.
