but is when the results be- come so positive or so painful that you are forced to take action. Psychologists refer to this as the Cognitive Dis- sonance Theory: either some- thing brings you so much joy or causes you so much pain and sorrow that you have no choice but to change your be- havior. If you keep repeating the same excuses rather than taking action then you aren’t at this point yet. It’s that simple. Benjamin Franklin said, “He that is good for mak- ing excuses is seldom good for anything else.” And you definitely don’t want Excuse Master on your headstone. The endless cycle of re- peating excuses could be de- scribed, in the words of Alan Watts, as “all retch and no vomit.” How grossly appropri- ate! When we allow ourselves to associate with thankless, negative, or even unethical people we become poisoned by them. It’s not their fault; it’s ours. When we lack the discipline or self-esteem to break a negative habit, in- stead clinging to our big buts, we poison ourselves. Better to be silent than to regurgitate the same old thing over and over. Albert Einstein defined insanity as “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” This includes making excuses. For things to change, first you must change, so eliminate the three letter “b” word from your vocabulary because a big but doesn’t look good on anybody. Tracey C. Jones is a US Air Force veteran, en- trepreneur, speaker, and publisher. She speaks to audiences across the na- tion on leadership, ac- countability, business suc- cess, and other topics. Her latest book is “Beyond Tremendous: Raising the Bar on Life.” n owlands, allowing for future expansion of the infrastructure. “The buyer, Lavalle Foods USA, expressed an urgent need to increase their warehouse and distribution space to accommo- date their growing business of importing fine foods from Italy,” said Leitner. “The buyer had outgrown their previous distri- bution site in Teterboro, which was nearly half the size. The acreage provides the buyer with the option to further expand their operations.” n

lost chances you will find for- tune and opportunity. What you say and what you think affects your circumstances in a very real way. Chang- ing what comes out of your mouth—and what you say to yourself in your head¬—can give you a whole new outlook. You can create a life of possi- bility and potential by avoid- ing a simple three-letter word. Don’t be an excuse en- abler: Excuses come in two categories. The first derives from things we will not do despite the direct negative impact of inaction, such as de- veloping a healthier lifestyle or pursuing a more fulfilling career. These buts are insidi- ous and pervasive when you just don’t care enough about yourself to take action. If you want it bad enough you’ll find a way; if you don’t you’ll find an excuse. The second category derives from things we will not stop doing. It could be an addiction, or allowing negative people to stay in your life. This but thrives on the guilt-and-fear excuse and an enabling personality. As much as we like to blame others, the fact is that you are the master of what goes on in your own head. That’s right, YOU. It’s that simple, and it’s that difficult. There is nothing positive or productive to be gained by making excuses or by repeat- ing them. Repetition gives them credibility and allows them to continue to drain you and others. Let’s face it; life is tough, even for the healthiest and wealthiest of us. Making excuses exiles you to a per- petual rut, while choosing to take responsibility for your happiness and your attitude frees to you to move on to big- ger and better things.
