Excuses have no place on a journey toward success. Obstacles will appear on your journey; there’s absolutely no way to avoid them and, honestly, you won’t want to. Why? Because obstacles and challenges build us into better people and better businesses. Without difficulties to overcome, we won’t become better.
The problem is that ego often gets in the way.
If you’ve ever struggled with a narcissistic boss intent on his way or the highway (despite the impending disaster everyone else around him can see), then you’ve seen ego in action. But what you probably haven’t yet realized is that you, too, also struggle with ego.
No one likes to admit they’re wrong. No one enjoys admitting defeat.
However, in order to live into your best life and find the success you have always dreamed about, you first have to take a good hard look at yourself to determine what has been holding you back. Is it the critics in your head, a lack of knowledge, a victim mentality that believes the opportunity just hasn’t been present, or is it one of a million other excuses?
Excuses are easy to come by.
The difference between those who have a winning attitude and those who don’t is in how they handle the obstacle. Remember: only 3 percent will succeed, and 97 percent are left behind. We can’t say this enough. The reason is the 97 percent stop believing. They let doubt, worry, fear, and ego crowd out the truth that success is within their grasp.
To have a winning attitude, you must take full responsibility for whatever happens. This means checking your ego at the door.
