There are no excuses—only choices.

Many walk through life as zombies—totally unaware of how limiting their thoughts are.

False beliefs feed our minds:

  • I don’t have enough time to …
  • Someone else is to blame for my lack of …
  • Obstacles are bad!

It’s easy to focus on counterproductive attitudes and thoughts—instead of what we desire.

Try it. Catch yourself (and your team) trapped in negativity by dwelling endlessly on what’s missing.


Leaders don’t rationalize negative chatter as the new normal. They make choices, not excuses!

This is the first rule of the new you: You must accept responsibility for the choices you make.

No more defending, rationalizing, or minimizing.

You make a choice, and either it works or it doesn’t get the results you want—either way your choice must be no excuses.

Develop your desire. Give your thoughts and attention to who you want to become. Discipline your mind.

The only thing standing between you and what you desire are the crazy stories you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve something.

Life is like poker: You can play to win or play not to lose. I’m playing to win, what about you?

No more excuses. Make a choice!
