I noticed a difference between two groups of people. A difference so startling, I was compelled to tell you about it. This video might alienate 197 very specific people, but it’s something I’ve been thinking about for two weeks and can’t hold back.
After seven years of observation, I can say that this is the biggest difference between people who are successful with their businesses and those who are not: Being a do’er.

Shut down the excuses, be someone that produces.
If you think you are one of the people I’m talking about – or very similar to those people – that’s something to think about in and of itself.
I’m guilty too sometimes.
So let’s make a pact, even if you’re mad at me for having the audacity to post this video, to look at our excuses for what they really are: a pack of lies. And start saying the truth behind them instead.
When you’re honest with yourself, “I’m really busy” turns out to mean “Oh, that sounds neat but I’m not willing to set aside Real Housewives for it.” Sometimes the the excuse for not doing something really means, “I’m afraid I’ll fail,” and other times it means “I’m afraid I’ll succeed.”
But the sooner you stop blaming outside factors (excuses) for your choices and priorities, the sooner you take control of your life.
This stuff is hard and it doesn’t get fixed with one blog post.
And that’s the beauty of growth – we’re never done. But we must always push on to do better and to be better.
