Benjamin Franklin said, “He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” Excuses are nothing more than a cancer to the soul. It will rob you of ever achieving your highest potential. No matter where you are in life, and no matter what you’ve been touched by in life, you can achieve more, and receive more if you’ll only believe more.

Did you know that taking more time off could actually improve your productivity. Studies have shown that people who understand when & how to relax out pace others significantly with less effort. In this episode I share 10 ways you can relax and get more done.
Everybody has goals. Maybe you want to run that half marathon coming up in six months, or you want to finish up your degree and go for a promotion. Whatever you are working towards it is important to continually take steps towards success and find ways to improve yourself along the way.
Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done. You might reach an unexpected roadblock, or a task you need to complete might be much more difficult than you expected. When this happens, it’s easy to get discouraged, and lose your motivation. It’s so important that you don’t let this happen. Every step that you take towards reaching a goal doesn’t just get you closer to accomplishing something. It’s also a step towards self improvement.
I love sports because it can teach so much in every facet of life. Anyone in the Carolinas this year, even if they are a casual observer of sports has heard about the incredible season the Carolina Panthers are having. I would consider myself a huge sports fan, and a casual football fan in general, but this year I like many others in the Carolinas and parts of Georgia have become absolutely mesmerized by the performance Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers have put on.
A few weeks ago going to Atlanta to play the Falcons the Panthers were 14-0 and did not look like they could be stopped. Then they met a team hungrier than they were, and had nothing to lose. This is absolutely the worst kind of opponent to have whether in business, sports, or life. This kind of opponent doesn’t simply rest on their talent, skill, or preparation alone. They scrape all of their assets together no matter how big or small, and then mix it with just sheer determination, will, and pure uninhibited force. When you are facing that, regardless of your advantages, you’d better be ready.
That’s what happened on December 28th to the Carolina Panthers. They came in to play another game, but Atlanta came in to play their swan-song. Tough to beat, but the Ron River, head coach of the Panthers made a profound statement after the game.
Winning can hide your warts. I believe some of our issues will now be easier to address.
The pure brilliance and genius in this statement transcends sports, and really can be applied to any area of life. Here are some business lessons I derived from this.
