How to stop giving excuses

Why do some people give excuses all the time?
Should we blame our past, our fate or our bad luck for the misfortunes we experience in life?

After all why shouldn't people give excuses when they all didn't begin their lives with similar resources. Some people started their lives richer than others, others began their lives prettier than others while a third group started their lives with more resources than others.

According to these facts people shouldn't stop giving excuses, right?

Why do people give excuses

When Sam was a child his parents pampered him to the extent that they didn't allow him to learn any life skill. When he grew up he found himself less equipped to face life than others and so he started to feel that he is different. As a result he developed shyness and always tried to avoid social situations.

nowadays whenever someone invites Sam to to a public event he gives a different excuse. Some of the excuses he gave were i am busy, i hate loud music or i have to study.

Do you know why was Sam giving excuses? its because he didn't dare to admit that he was shy.

People always give excuses whenever there is something that they don't dare to admit. (see What is real courage).

This is how to stop giving excuses

in 2004 i decided that i will be a self made millionaire even though i was still studying at college and i knew nothing about the outer world. starting from July 2004 to December 2005 i attempted to start 3 different businesses and they all failed.

At such a point i could have stopped and gave an excuse such as "i am not lucky" or "life was unfair to me". Everyone was going to believe me then but because i understood that i have the choice to create my own destiny by not giving up i kept going.

In 2005 i started learning about the stock market. by the end of 2005 i made a good return on the initial amount i invested but in 2006 i lost all of the money i made in a stock market crash.

Again had i decided to stop trying and give excuses people would have believed me but i understood that there are people who succeed and there are people who give excuses and so i kept going.

by 2007 i was back on my feet but in 2008 i lost 80% of my lifetime savings in the global stock market crash.

during that time i started working on my website instead of giving excuses because i knew that the moment i stop trying it would be the moment that i admit defeat.

by 2010 i became a self made millionaire after my business succeeded. (See the Ultimate guide to becoming rich)

Stop giving excuses and you will succeed

If you told me that you weren't born rich i will tell you that i know hundreds of self made millionaires.

If you told me that you weren't born talented i will tell you that i know thousands of people who persisted until they developed their talents.

If you told me that life is unfair to you i will tell you that i know hundreds of people who never gave up until they forced life to become fair to them on the longer term.

You might not be able to control the starting point or the amount of resources you begin your life with but you are one hundred percent responsible for the end point.

Some people change the world while others give excuses.
The choice is yours.

I have managed to become a self made millionaire at the age of 28. This didn't happen by chance because i already wrote that goal down five years before i accomplished it. Becoming rich is not about luck, starting big or being intelligent but its all about having certain beliefs about money and life.

In The Ultimate guide to becoming rich i will teach you everything that you need to know in order to become rich.
