EmmanuelKumah:Overcoming Excuses

Have ever given an excuse in your life?Just a few years of existence on this planet , I have noticed how easily and readily people give excuses for every thing or misfortune that happens to them.Excuses is never a characteristics of succesful people.Today i would like to share with you ways to cure the excuses in your life from the great book ``The magic of thinking big`` Are you ready to cure all the excuses in your life and be more proactive to situations you face everyday?

3 ways to cure yourself of Excuses

1.Never underestimate your own intelligence and never overestimate the intelligence of others.
Don’t sell yourself short,no one is better than you ,you have the power to make great changes likewise concentrate on your assets-what you have know is far more important use them effectively,you should also discover  and use your superior talents,bring forth the hidden potentials and show the world what you`ve got.Remember it is not how much brains you’ve got that matters.Rather, it is how you use your brains that counts.Manage your brain instead of worrying about how much IQ you have got.

2.Remind yourself several times daily,”my attitudes are most important than my intelligence” At work and at home practice positive attitudes,see the reasons why you can do it,not the reasons why you can’t.It is quite unfortunate that most people prefer to focus on the negative aspect of thier life instead of the positive ,this should not be you, Develop an “I’m winning” attitude.Put your intelligence to creative positive use and know  that the ability to think is of much greater value than the ability to memorize facts,though our education system encourages memorisig facts ,think outside the box and engage your self in creative activities.Use your mind to create and develop ideas, to find new and better ways to do things.Ask yourself “Am I using my mental ability to make history or am I using it merely to record history made by others.”

3.” It is no use am too old or too young.Heard anyone say this -Age escusitis, the failure disease of never being the right age comes too easily identifiable forms, the “ I’m too old” variety and the “ I am too young “ brand.
You have heard hundreds of people of all ages explain in life something like “ I am too old or young “ to do it now, cure yourself of that excuses, age could just be a number after all,it is what is in you that determines who you become ,not the age.
