THE TOP 20 ALIBIS FOR FAILURE
You will be surprised to know that the number one reason why most people fail at achieving their goals in life is not due to a lack of talent. Most people fail because they have alibis for their failure. They have excuses to cover up the real reasons why they aren’t able to achieve their goals. To succeed at attaining your goals, you have to be honest with yourself about your weaknesses and work hard to build on them. Ego has no place in long-lasting success. I put together a list of the top 20 alibis most people have for failure. This list can be found in Napoleon Hill’s book, think, and grow rich.
