“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.
I don’t believe in circumstances.
The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.“
George Bernard Shaw
We are all capable of so much more than we accomplish, and often fall short of our potential.
One excuse I often hear (and sometimes make) is how we did the best we could, and then blame our failure on “the situation.” For example:
“It might have looked like I dropped the ball on that one, but I did the best I could – given the situation.”
Sometimes that is a real reason – but more often than not, it is a temporary obstacle that you need to get through. And today, I will show you how.
