Principle 1.2: You Have to Give Up All Your Excuses

99% of all failures come from people who have a habit of making excuses.

If you want to create the life of your dreams, then you are going to have to take 100% responsibility for your life as well. That means giving up all your excuses, all your victim stories, all the reasons why you can’t and why you haven’t up until now, and all your blaming of outside circumstances. You have to give them all up forever.
You have to take the position that you have always had the power to make it different, to get it right, to produce the desired result.
Here is a formula propounded by Dr. Robert Resnick, a Psychotherapist in Los Angeles 👉
Event + Response = Outcome.
It’s only when you realize that you have created your current conditions, then you can unrecreate them and recreate them at will. Take a step!

Like a chorus infered from D-clique song (Responsibility)
“Gotta be careful with what I do
I gotta control what I say
Gotta learn to listen to that reasonable voice I am about to make my own choices
