Stop giving excuses!

Make a no-more- excuses commitment!

Are you ready?

Do you let excuses stand on your way? Do you let excuses stop you?

This sound advice will do you good: no excuses. They will not help you.

Steve Keating says Excuses steal your potential. Steve is the founder of Lead today. He knows what he is talking about. Don’t hear from somebody else. Read Excuses steal your potential.

He has also written another post that caught my attention and I am sure it is good for all of us: The habit of making excuses which I highly recommend to you.

If you know the psychology of excuses, you will better understand how to treat excuses. I appreciate a post on this by Kaby in Collecting Puzzles.

There are people who cannot create a blog or are no longer blogging. If you ask them why, they will give you a long list of excuses – lame excuses.

If you are not writing that book you want to write because of excuses, I recommend a post by author Don Massenzio written in November 2018, Top Excuses for not writing your book and how to overcome them.

If you want excuses not to write, you will find them. You may want to take a look at these 101 excuses that one writer found for not writing. As he put it himself, some of them are ridiculous. Go through them and see how many resonate with you.

Excuses do not help. Excuses are an enemy to progress. Stop hiding behind excuses and failing to do the things which you can and should do.

No more excuses, right?

You have more power than you actually realize.” I agree with Roberto Stonegate.

I can say without fear of error that if you don’t stop hiding behind excuses, you will end up frustrated. Put away excuses and get into action. Do things. Don’t give excuses for not doing them.

Ariel Bella says to attract abundance into your life, stop making excuses.

I love the words of an anonymous writer on excuses:

Excuses are tools of the incompetent, and those who specialize in them seldom go far.”

On his part, Benjamin Franklin says, “He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.”

I fully agree with George Washington Carver who holds that “Ninety-nine percent of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.”

Leanne has declared 2019, year of no excuses. And in another post she gives her no more excuses commitment: What next?

Are you ready to make a no- more-excuses commitment?

Please, if you have written a post on excuses which we have not mentioned in this post, kindly forward the link to us.

If you know a post on this subject which can help someone somewhere, please, forward the link to us. We want to encourage all those who have written on excuses by sharing to reach more readers.

Hello friends, we had a brief break because we had to attend a communication conference in another city. It went successfully. Now, I am back. Let’s get to work.


I enjoyed a story on Boundless blessings blog about respecting the ones you love. It’s a very interesting and teaching story.

Many nations are torn apart by division.  What of yours?  And what do we do? In THE LIGHT BREAKS THROUGH blog  Keith Haney helps us find a way out. He takes the example of his own country.   Read ONE NATION UNDER GOD – HEALING RACIAL DIVIDE It was through this site that I got to know big faith Little city and to read the post Pearls of gentleness and respect.  Julee is a very strong Christian. Her faith is what keeps her “moving every minute of every day.” I encourage you to visit big faith little city.

I came across The Caterpillar story told in Anita’s Images.  What a big lesson told in a very simple way, with the backing of beautiful pictures. Anita is a “Curious hobby photographer, from Sweden but living in Malta.” It doesn’t take anytime to read The Caterpillar Story, but you go away feeling really edified.

  1. You probably have heard it said that your words shape your destiny. Have you ever taken time to think about it or listened to someone explain to you what that means? This is very important. Stephen Ogoe of Salvation Realities  has taken time and done a good job to explain this in a post titled Your Words Shape Your Destiny. I enjoyed reading this post which I find to be very edifying. I hope you find time to read it.
  2. We are not very far from the end of the year. When a new year comes, it is fashionable to take resolutions; but how many people keep the resolutions they take? If we keep the resolutions we take, the fruits we reap can be very abundant. But it is so hard for many of us to keep our resolutions. Dana Buchanan of Success Encourager has done an excellent job to help us in this difficult task through a beautiful post Turning Resolutions into lifestyle.  I encourage you to read this post. You will find much more on this site.
  3. In today’s world one of the greatest difficulties countries are facing is unemployment. Many people are not getting the jobs they want. Job-hunting is common and often ends in frustration for many people. Yet, some people move from one lucrative job to another. I have always wondered what is their secret.  I  got attracted by The Secret of Getting Any Job You Want published on It’s A New Age. This post is worth reading especially if you are in job hunting.
  4. You may not be a Lawyer, but you will find this article Building a Legacy interesting and useful. You will not only be thrilled but also inspired by the closing words  of Buck Lewis to the 2018 Leading As LAWYERS CLASS. Building a legacy will not be a bad thing for you, will it?

Welcome to what SIWO  proposes for your reading time today from the SIWO DIRECTORY. With so much to read but very little time, it is our joy to propose some of the best posts we have come across which can be beneficial to you. If you have written a post which you think can feature in our daily Directory, please summarize it and send to us in the comment box with the link.

  1. Do you want to know how to make a lot of money? For sure, there are many books in the market which will tell yo how to become rich, but while surfing the web I came across this book which is presented as “the greatest of all inspirational works on the subject of thrift, financial planning, and personal wealth.” The book, The Richest Man in Babylon,  will “set you on a sure path to prosperity and its accompanying joys.”  Read about The Richest Man in Babylon. That might be a turning point in your life.


2. Have you ever heard of Jim Rohn? He is somebody to meet. Jim Rohn left us; but I found a post by G. ALIVIZATOS on Bleed More which offers you the opportunity to draw a wealth of knowledge from this awesome man and change your life. Bleed More offers you:

Never wish life were easier, wish that you were better

You will not regret getting to know this amazing man. Alivizatos says if you want to succeed, you’ve got to bleed.


3. If you are married, you may want to read something that can inject more life into your marriage. Many marriages start off very well, but soon drift into disillusionment with quarrels, anger taking an upper hand. I found in Aleteia  how something a couple is doing just for  20 seconds a day is changing their marriage. This is a must to read and apply. On this same site, you will see how hugging can improve your health.


4. Are you a poetry lover. This aesthetic literary genre has become the darling of many  in the blogosphere. It has also become a darling of the SIWO world. Spend some time with SIWO and take a look at the poetry contest by two ingenious ladies, Amulya Bhardwaj and Preeti Gusain – SIWO POETRY CONTEST. You are welcome to participate. The theme is exciting and you will be recognized and rewarded.


5. One of the most amazing bloggers I have met is Theo Herbots  who has an amazing site. His posts are translated into some 110 languages. Check  and read in  your language. On this site you will find rare photos, lots of inspiration and contests.  Theo will be ready to welcome you to Theo Herbots Photography.
