You Might Have This Disease

Updated: Aug 5



"Excuse-itis!" 😮


Excuse-itis is the disease of one of the biggest enemies of success!


I hear these excuses from so many people during my 9 year career as a personal trainer.


They start with long alibis that always contain the two words...


Don't and Can't


This type of person will say things like:


1. "I don't really have the time to train anymore, my work schedule is crazy and I have my kids."

2. "I have a condition and I don't want to push myself too hard and give myself a heart attack."

3. "I can't make it to my session something came up. "


Their alibis get shorter as time passes because they realize after making statements similar to those I respond with the words, "No Excuses!"


I don't buy into their alibis or lies!🤥


"A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will not escape."


- Proverbs 19:5


They realize they can't get away with making those excuses and get frustrated with being called out so they shorten their alibi or lie with the expectation that I will just accept it.


But I repeat...


NO EXCUSES


If you look at what accomplishments these people have made in their life you'll find...


NOT MUCH!


Why?


They lead a life of MEDIOCRITY


"Mediocrity is the worst enemy of prosperity"


- Henry Ford


See I've been reading this book called,


The Magic Of Thinking Big


by Dr. David J. Swartz Ph.D.


He says in the book;


"You'll find that the more a successful person is the less that person makes excuses for anything."


One thing that is instilled in my speech. The responses that I make instinctively in my head and out loud when being tempted to explain a failure or to make an alibi or lie I correct myself immediately and respond with...


NO EXCUSES


It's pointless to try and make one up!


I learned this from being raised in a military family, attending Junior ROTC in high school and from my own experience in the U.S. Army.


See the military encourages a person to own their failure in completing a task and to find a way to complete it.


That's my message for today folks!


I hope that you enjoyed these words of inspiration and beware of this disease called Excuse - itis.


I'm heading back into my gym to get a workout in because I have NO EXCUSE.
