Alibis Lie

Alibis Lie

When it comes to excuses, the world is full of amazing inventors. Don’t spend half your life telling what you are going to do and the other half explaining why you didn’t do it. An alibi is the supposed proof that you did do what you didn’t do, so that others will think you didn’t do what you did. Mistakes have hidden powers to help us, but they fail in their mission of helping us when we blame them on other people. When you use excuses, you give up your power to change and improve. You can fall down many times, but you won’t be a failure until you say that someone else pushed you. Never mind who you praise, but be very careful whom you blame. If you find an excuse, don’t pick it up.
Failures are experts at making excuses. There are always enough excuses available if you’re weak enough to use them. The world simply does not have enough crutches for all the lame excuses. It’s always easier to find excuses than time for the things we don’t want to do. Find a way instead of looking for an alibi. There is no excuse for being full of excuses. When you make a mistake and then make an excuse for it, you have made two mistakes. “The fox condemns the trap, not himself”. Don’t find yourself talking like that old fox! Doing a job right is always easier than fabricating an alibi for why you didn’t. You waste time and creative energy thinking up excuses. An excuse is a foundation upon which one builds a house of failure. An alibi is worse and more troubling than a lie, because an alibi is a lie with other lies attached to it. It’s been said that an excuse is a thin skin of falsehood stretched tightly over a bold faced lie. Most failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses. When you’re good at making excuses it’s hard to excel at anything else. “All hard work brings a profit, but mere talk leads to poverty”. Don’t make excuses, make progress. There may be many reasons for failure, but not a single excuse. Never let a challenge become an alibi. You have a choice: Let the obstacle be an alibi or let it be an opportunity. No alibi will ever support your purpose in life. The person who really wants to do something finds a way; the others find an excuse. If you ask a person who has failed in life, you’ll be told that success is a matter of luck. Don’t buy that alibi!
