If There’s a Will, There’s a Way!

Maybe next time…

Oh is that so? I didn’t know…

I don’t think I can handle that…

It isn’t my fault. It is their fault…

I don’t have time for that…

These are just some of the reasons we give away as our excuse to get out of something. It’s a collection of never-ending excuses that whatever you say, there is always a corresponding excuse. There is an alibi for each time and occasion.

As the saying goes, “if there’s a will, there’s a way.” If a person wants to do something, he will exhaust all means to do it. If it is something he doesn’t want to do, he will exhaust all excuses to get out of it. It can be very annoying to be with this kind of person, much more help him or her. These people are very pessimistic, pre-occupied with negativity and this is what is in their heart and mind and thus what comes out of their mouth.

This may sound like you. If it does, don’t be quick to get angry! Reflect on this first. If you are a person who always finds an excuse to get out of things, what are the things that you could miss out on?


You are missing out on every opportunity that comes your way.

Because you would rather be pre-occupied thinking of your weaknesses, that you are not capable of achieving things, opportunities pass you by without your even knowing it. The sad thing is that these may be the exact opportunities you have been waiting for all your life! You will then end up regretting your actions and wishing you could have done something. Regret always comes at the end.


This is how you will be. This is all you can become. Stagnant. Just like a clogged up waterway with no room to move anywhere. Your excuses and alibis are the reasons for your being in this position.

Things have stopped flowing even in other areas of your life. You are like a tree that has stunted in its growth, no leaves and no fruit. In other words, you didn’t just stop growing, you also stopped being useful. People around you have leveled up and changed for the better. You have become obsolete. Why so? Because you don’t want to change. You have too many reservations. You have too many excuses.


You always look at the negative and have not learned how to appreciate the positive. The result? A miserable life with a lot of regrets. You chose to play safe so you didn’t learn too much with no excitement and nothing happening in your life. You have slowly killed off your joy with your invalid, unreasonable and selfish excuses. So when you look back, you can’t even smile because of the many “what ifs”. Your excuses has limited your life.

These are just a few of the many things you miss out on whenever you make excuses to get out of things happening around you. While you still live, while you still have the opportunity, stop making excuses and grab the opportunities that come your way. Making excuses will not benefit your life and the lives of those around you.




Do you have a lot of excuses on reserve?

Are you ready to grab the opportunities, grow and have joy in your


Are you willing to give up your excuses and alibis for a better life?
