Someone can take away your home, car, job, money- even your children, but no one can take away your excuses. You’re the only one who can let go of excuses. Excuses justify why you’re where you are today and release you from an obligation to give more. Let go of the excuses of where you’ve been and where you are and take responsibility to where you’re heading.
