People will always be offering you excuses. Don’t take them.

Out of kindness many people will offer you excuses for why you failed. They are hurting you instead.

If you accept other people excuses, you stop learning about what really went wrong and you are almost certain to fail again If you really want to succeed you must face your failure and learn how to make the best of it and move on. This is the way you grow. You do not grow when you accept other peoples excuses.

Step up and accept responsibility for your failure.

How to be so good they can’t ignore you.

Deliberate practice is the key.

In order to get better you have to set up a system that gives you feedback as to how you are doing and then practice getting better in the areas that need development. Putting the time in on getting better is not enough, you have to know how you are doing. Look at what you are doing and break out tasks you can measure. Take these measures and develop ways to improve them. That is where your practice will pay off.

They are watching you, what do they see?

If you don’t do it now, you never will.

Every second you wait to do something increases the chances that you will never do it.

Having an idea and then not taking immediate action on it is the kiss of death for the idea. Develop the habit of getting to work on something the minute you think of it. Once an idea is not acted upon, it gets filed in with the thousands of other ideas you had, never to be seen again.

What is one step you can take right now to make an idea happen?

Play offense, not defense.

Playing defense means playing not to lose, playing offense means playing to win.

You need to play to win if you are going to move your life ahead. This means putting yourself out there, making extra effort, taking chances, and knowing you are going to win. You are a winner playing to win, not a loser playing not to lose.

Game on!
