A new week is ahead of us…let’s make it a productive one that gets us closer to our ultimate goals.
Remember, we can make excuses and we can make money but we can’t make both. Below are a few messages and a great video that serves as a reminder to JUST DO IT.

No Excuses By Ralph Marston
Every day offers you plenty of reasons to make excuses. But excuses bring you nothing of real value. Sure, a plausible excuse may enable you to save face, to appear more diligent and disciplined than you know you are. But do you merely want to appear successful, or would you prefer to actually be successful? Excuses hold you back because they enable you to avoid responsibility and the achievement it brings. You deserve more than just a life filled with useless excuses. Instead of making excuses, choose to make some honest, authentic progress. Even a tiny effort is infinitely more productive than a big, impressive excuse. Don’t settle for a growing list of reasons for failure. You can just as easily give yourself real, compelling reasons to succeed. Free yourself from the shackles of useless excuses. And see this day as the grand opportunity that it is.
No Excuses By Ralph Marston
Excuses are the sure and reliable building blocks of failure. Whether you find yourself offering them or accepting them, they are a definite warning flag that you are veering off course. Well thought out actions make up the currency of effectiveness, whereas excuses are the currency of futility. Every setback has a reason. Every mistake has a reason. You can either accept those reasons, and learn something positive from them, or you can turn them into excuses, and thereby allow them to defeat you. Each excuse is a small defeat, and they can add up quickly. The best strategy is to avoid them. Explain yourself, but make no excuses. Listen to reason, but accept no excuses. Experience life without excuses. Your own effectiveness and the effectiveness of those around you will skyrocket as a result.
Laugh at Every Excuse By Ralph Marston
The easiest thing in the world is to come up with an excuse for not taking action. No matter what the situation, there’s always an excuse that sounds perfectly reasonable and that can provide you with permission to do nothing. Rarely does it help to fight against the excuses, because that just leads to even stronger and more compelling excuses. So how do you get around them? Connect with a dream that is bigger than any excuse could possibly be. Grab hold of a dream that’s so compelling it makes you laugh at every possible excuse. If your goal is to do what you don’t really want to do anyway, even the weakest excuse can stop you cold. If, however, your goal is tied to an authentic, personally meaningful dream, that’s a completely different situation. And that makes perfect sense. Because if it doesn’t really matter to you anyway, there’s not much point in spending your precious time on it. Choose instead to live the beautiful, meaningful dreams that you truly desire to live. And no setback, no challenge, no excuse will have the power to even slow you down.
