Giving excuses are the first defense of the insecure. While fixing every blame on our circumstances will often lead us to fixing the blame on others. So the next time you catch yourself making an excuse, stop and turn your attention immediately to what can be done to best rectify the situation.
To move forward we have to be positive and forward looking. If one approach does not work, stick to your goal but, try a different approach. Or, if at first, an idea you feel have merit is not accepted, wait for a better time and a different set of circumstances to make it happen. Remember to stop, reassess your options and find some other ways to push forward your idea.
Stay positive when faced with negative situations and negative people. Always look forward to the future and decide upon the best course of action given the existing circumstances because the hallmark of getting anything done have everything to do with our relentless focus on overcoming the odds and obstacles that stop most people in their tracks.
