Got Excuses?

I am currently reading an e-book called "Your LAST Acne Solution" by Leo Kiesen. Now, before you all email asking me how much I spent on this book, and don't I know these things are scams... I cannot count how much money I have spent in the past several years trying to simply manage my acne (with no hope of getting rid of it). So a few small dollars on a system that addresses the causes of acne and makes claims of getting rid of it forever - worth a shot, I think.

Anyway, that's not even the point. The point is, he says something in his book that smacked me right in the forehead. I don't know if it's a "Leo original" or if he's heard it before (sounds like something I've heard before), but it's one of those sayings that is well worth repeating and mulling over for a while.

You can have excuses or you can have results, but you can't have both.

Want to lose weight? (see above)

Want to manage your finances? (see above)

Want to be more productive? (uh-huh, look up)

Want to get your children's behavior under control? (up there)

Want to grow closer to God? (yup, you guessed it)

It's actually worth saying again, because the simple profoundness of it applies to all things in life that require any amount of effort on our part.

You can have excuses or you can have results, but you can't have both.

It would seem that there is a bit of a theme going on in my world these days...

By the way, Bobbie, I am sorry that you hated my post yesterday. If it makes you feel any better I have slept in the past two days in a row. *hugs*

So what do you want to change in your life? And if you are not seeing results, what's your excuse?


  1. Im not wild about this one either.

  2. I am pretty wild about what you have to say!! It makes perfect sense, now it is up to each one of us whether we implement it into our lives. :)


I am so glad you stopped by! My hope is that we can engage in a conversation together. I love to reply to your comments, but I need your help to make that happen.

If you have a blogger profile, would you consider editing your profile to "show my email address?" Then, when I receive your comment in my email inbox, I can reply directly to you.

Alternately, you can check the box "email follow up comments to..." so that I can reply to you right here. (You will also receive other readers' comments using this method.)

I'm excited to get to know you better!
