"An excuse starts as a protective measure. It shields us from pain, saves our pride, keeps our ego from getting punctured, allows us to obscure the brutal truth. That feels like a relief at first. We avoided the pain.
Then we lay another excuse on top of the first. Then another. Excuses make us feel safe. So we think, why not add another? Soon enough, you're wearing excuses like a knight wearing armor...But how fast do you think you could run wearing a suit of armor? How well could you climb a mountain? How well could you swim across a lake? How well could you hug your kids?
Excuses protect you, but they exact a heavy cost. You can't live a full life while you wear them." --Eric Greitens
