Into the FutureIf you are going to be successful in life — even if that just means creating a loving family or strong personal relationships, being a good person, or selling your handmade soap or paintings at a local crafts fair — you’ve got to stop making excuses.

If you want to get in better shape, or lose weight, or write that children’s book or start that gift shop or sell your artwork, you’ve got to do what all successful people do: go for it, unencumbered by the ball and chain of excuse-making.

Successful people don’t make excuses for not accomplishing things.

They point their eyes in the direction they want to go, and they start moving in that direction.

Success for many of us comes one step at a time.  And it is often followed by many stumbles along the way.

Keep in mind success won’t come over night, but it will come if you sustain your effort day after day after day week after week, year after year.
