There are plenty of very good reasons not to do what needs to be done. You've had a hard day, and you've got a headache -- that's a good reason not to make that one more call.

But what do you want more -- excuses or success?

Excuses may make you feel good right now. However, they will lead to pain in the future. A year from now, when it's too late to do anything, the excuse you feel so good about today won't do much to ease the pain of regret you'll feel for not having taken action.

You have two choices. You can resort to excuses, and thereby let circumstances control your life. Or, you can take action in spite of the reasons not to. Take control of your life. Live with purpose, passion and direction.

-Ralph Marston
