What are excuses and how do they apply to your life?

Excuses are defined by Webster’s New World Dictionary (2018), as attempting to lessen the blame attaching to (a fault or offense) seek to defend or justify; release (someone) from a duty or requirement (Agnes 2018).

Excuses are a disguise for fear! Excuses prevent you from achieving your purpose in life! Excuses are negative energy! Excuses are things you make up so you don’t have to do something or take responsibility for things.

Excuses are barriers that you are making for yourself. Those barriers are causing you to be weak and defeated! They are deferring you from your purpose in life. They are lies!

Excuses misinform you, they prevent you from doing something. Think about it, you were presented with an opportunity and you made an excuse to why you didn’t do it! It was a lie!

Do you understand how excuses apply to your life yet? 

Excuses apply because everyone, from time to time, has made an excuse for something. Sometimes it is easier to just make an excuse, instead of owning whatever the mistake or misunderstanding was.

If you are making excuses, I encourage you to stop! Face your fears! Step up, and take responsibility for your actions in life. Take responsibility for you! If you don’t you will continue to delay yourself from your purpose.

Stop making excuses for things that are going wrong in your life! Stop making excuses for why you won’t let the pains of the past go! Stop making excuses for whatever it is you are making excuses for.

Change your approach to life, and want something better for yourself! Stop being a liar! Own your weaknesses! Own your strengths! Own all that you do! Own all the energy you produce!

You can stop letting those lies you are telling continue to be a barrier for you! You just have to stop making excuses! Seriously, you were born for a purpose! I encourage you to find that purpose!

Own your mistakes and change your approach to every situation! Stop making excuses and live for your purpose, whatever it may be.

Remember you were born to be great, and those excuses you are making are delaying you from that greatness!



“Most people don’t have that willingness to break bad habits. They have a lot of excuses and they talk like victims”

Carlos Santana
