Excuses




We have exactly twenty-one days before the end of 2012, what plans or goals have you written out for 2013? Are they goals that you are willing to see through or make excuses for? 

I collated a list of quotes on excuses for you, as a means of motivating you to make most of your 2013!

  • "For many people, an excuse is better than an achievement because an achievement, no matter how great, leaves you having to prove yourself again in the future; but an excuse can last for life." Eric Hoffer
  • “Excuses are monuments of nothingness. They build bridges to nowhere. Those who use these tools of incompetence, seldom become anything but nothing at all.”
  • Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure. ~Don Wilder and Bill Rechin
  • Don't do what you'll have to find an excuse for. ~Proverb
  • No one ever excused his way to success. ~Dave Del Dotto
  • Excuses are the tools with which persons with no purpose in view build for themselves great monuments of nothing. ~Steven Grayhm
  • Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anyone else expects of you. Never excuse yourself. ~Henry Ward Beecher
  • We have more ability than will power, and it is often an excuse to ourselves that we imagine that things are impossible. ~Fran├žois de la Rochefoucauld
  • We are all manufacturers - some make good, others make trouble, and still others make excuses. ~Author Unknown
  • One of the most important tasks of a manager is to eliminate his people's excuses for failure. ~Robert Townsend
  • The person who really wants to do something finds a way; the other person finds an excuse. ~Author Unknown
  • If you always make excuses to not follow through you deserve the weight of anxiety on your chest. ~Daniel, @blindedpoet
  • If God had intended me to make excuses for who I am, He would have given me better excuses. ~Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com
  • A man can fail many times, but he isn't a failure until he begins to blame somebody else. ~John Burroughs
  • The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins. ~Bob Moawad
