I was scrolling through my Facebook wall some days ago when I came across the image above.
The picture shows a boy in the Phillipines who is using the light from a MacDonald’s shop to study.
Now, that is a boy who is determined to succeed and won’t allow anything to stop him.
That is a boy who won’t take NO for an answer.
That is a boy who won’t give excuses.
There is an insane habit of people who struggle through life and this habit is known as “Giving Excuses”
The Bible even talks about such “failure based habits”
In Proverbs 26:13, the Bible says:
“The lazy person claims, “There’s a lion on the road! Yes, I’m sure there’s a lion out there!”
That tells you the length that some people will go to just to give excuses and even validate the excuses.
We all know that success is not a simple and direct thing.
The difference however is that successful people know this and they determine not to allow anything to stop them.
The picture above also reminds me of myself.
If you want to succeed badly, you will find a way anyhow.
When I got started in online business some years ago, I had nothing but I found a way.
I had to spend nights at the Cybercafe for overnight browsing over and over again because I had no computer.
In fact, it got to a stage that I had to study Dale Carnegie’s book (How to win friends and influence people) just because I wanted to befriend the operators of these cybercafes so that I can use their systems for free because I had no money.
And it worked.
Are you okay with your present condition right now like a lot of people out there who have “settled down” for life to throw them about?
Or are you one of the few people who won’t allow anything whatsoever to stop them?
These are the type of people who won’t allow anything to stop them.
What about you? Are you an excuse giver?
May God help us all.
