Your Excuse is Invalid


No Excuses!

I closed my office for the day and decided to check my Facebook while I had a few minutes.  One of my friends had this picture as her post and I became inspired.  I was downloading it to my iPhoto when my wife suddenly said to me, “Did you see that picture that Jane had up on her Facebook?”  I replied, “That is so funny because I am downloading it right now.”  That meant something to me that I was inspired and as I was downloading it, my wife also became inspired.

What is stopping you now?  Look at this picture . . .

This kid has every excuse to throw in the towel and to quit.  He has every excuse to not want to get off the couch and ask mom if she can get him his food.  I would understand if that was his life too.

Look at him again . . .

He is smiling.  He has come to accept that he has no legs, but with modern technology today, he is able to live a relatively normal life.  Better yet, he is able to get out there and compete in a sport that (usually) requires legs.

What is holding you back now?  Why aren’t you doing the things you want to do?  Do you think that the stresses you put on your life are really that important that they are holding you back?  Stop the insanity now and go out there and do something.  Start immediately.  Don’t wait for something major to happen for you to realize what is important in your life.

Thanks for sharing this inspirational picture.  I kinda wish I could meet this kid.  I love him.
