Successful traders are ludicrously intolerant of excuses. Their own, and others.
When I was broke, I used to spout drivel about why it wasn’t my fault. One day I just stopped, cold turkey. Things turned around pretty quickly after that. Co-incidence? I think not.
The same goes for drinking and eating. You can’t keep on making excuses for being a boozer, or being overweight, if you want your future to look different from your past.
Making excuses is a malignant force in your life. People will be repelled from you. It’s a sign you’re deluded about your life, and it’s a sad statement of a lack of integrity. If you continue to do so, you’ll rob yourself of the chance to face reality and make the adjustments to your life that will under-pin the very fabric of your future success.
Hold yourself accountable. Stop believing your own drivel. Demand a higher standard from yourself.
The only way to move forward is to stop making excuses and just do it!
