“I attribute my success to this – I never gave, or took, any excuse.” – Florence Nightingale
The terrifying thing about excuses, is that it blinds us to our next move. If we excuse or try to justify a misstep, we at a subconscious level tell ourselves that this is “out of my control”. That this was a fluke, or a chance event, and there’s nothing I could do differently next time.
On the flip side, owning what happens is not about beating ourselves up or throwing pity parties. It’s solely so that we can open our vision on where to go next. To see the lesson in front of us.
Excuses are contagious, and horribly damaging. Let’s take the opposite road, as growth begins with responsibility.
