Invalid Excuses

Here's a little Sunday afternoon moitvation for ya...

As my senior year is coming to an end, I've been thinking a lot about the kind of future that I want for myself.  Granted, I haven't exactly been partaking in the typical senior year activities of choosing a college, applying for scholarships, weighing the differences of different majors, or even planning an exciting senior week trip.  Instead, I've been doing lots of PT, going to training, and doing everything I can to prepare myself for the journey of a lifetime that is Basic Training.  Trust me, it's still a lot of work.  A different kind of work, but work.

Throughout the past four years, I've come to realize what it really takes to be successful.  Thanks to my dad, I've understood the principle of hard work since I was very young.  I've come to know that a sense of entitlement will get you nowhere, good work ethic is a must, and that hard work pays off.  There's no substitution for a job well done, and a good effort will produce promising results.  Those are just the facts.

As I prepare to take on the real world, I have compiled a list of invalid excuses that I think we all use a little too often.  I encourage you to mark these off your list.  It's easier said than done, but it's definitely rewarding.

No matter what the mission is, the best way to do it is to do it right.  If we set aside everything that we think is holding us back, we can most definitely achieve whatever we set our minds to.

Best of luck on whatever your journey may be.
