Reflective Thinking

One of the core failure diseases that a lazy person lives with on a daily basis is “excusitis”. I first learned about the failure diseases in the book The Magic of Thinking Big. When I first read it I was so angry that I was 21 years old and I had never been educated about this. Anger eventually turned to peace as I killed off that disease.

Action Idea

Read The Magic of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz.  More immediately, do your own reflective thinking and determine if you have the failure disease known as excusitis. If you identify that you do, reading that book is a great place to start. Next thing you do is increase your awareness of excuses you make and reverse course as much as possible. Eventually, you’ll have a new habit of not making excuses and taking full responsibility for your circumstances. Being cured of excusitis will give you a new sense of freedom from circumstances and confidence to take action to solve problems.
