BECAUSE is a word used by quitters

I get a lot of emails from subscribers, fans, and followers who are trying to pursue something important – a dream, a purpose, or some big goal.

Giving UpToo often, embedded inside the emails I receive, are excuses why they quit.

The word BECAUSE seems to pop up frequently in those emails.

“I couldn’t do X because …”

“I tried but failed because …”

“I worked hard but had to give up because …”

ObstaclesSuccessful people have to overcome many seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

Rather than make excuses, they simply find a way to overcome those obstacles.

At some point in their lives, they eliminated the Poor Habit of making excuses.

They stopped using the word BECAUSE.

It’s so easy to find excuses for why we fail, make mistakes, or quit on our dreams and goals.

Excuses give us an easy out.

Excuses allow us to rationalize that it’s not our fault.

But that’s a slippery slope.

When we forge the Poor Habit of making excuses, we are essentially telling ourselves that we are not in control of our lives and that our circumstances are dictated by outside forces.

WinnersWhen you brainwash yourself into thinking your circumstances are outside your control, you will never be able to change the circumstances of your life.

You’ll be stuck forever, comforted only by your ability to find excuses for why your life is as it is.

Stop using the word BECAUSE every time something doesn’t go your way.
