John Maxwell has started a new teaching series where he presents a one-minute lesson on one word every day. Today’s lesson was on excuses. Watch the clip here.
Here are some other quotes on excuses:
“Ninety-nine percent of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.” —George Washington Carver
“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you are interested in doing something, you do it only when it is convenient. When you are committed to something, you accept no excuses only results.” —Kenneth Blanchard
“Obstacles are not excuses for failure, they are opportunities for growth.” —Craig T. Owens
“People who are good at making excuses are seldom good at anything else.” —Benjamin Franklin
Let’s stop making excuses and start taking responsibility!
