What’s Your Excuse? TPS187

TPS187 Recently I watched a video about Jennifer Bricker who was abandoned as a baby because she was born with no legs. After seeing gold medalist Dominique Moceanu, a gold-medal winner in tumbling, Jennifer decided she wanted to learn to tumble. She not only learned, she won titles and competed in the Junior Olympics. When I watched her tumbling and saw how she didn’t accept herself as limited, I thought about the excuses people use that hold them back. What’s your excuse?


  • Don’t focus on what you can’t do. Focus on what you can do or how you can help.
  • Many people have excuses for what they can’t do.
  • In order make lasting changes, you have to be willing to change your habits.
  • You have the option of blaming others. But it’s your decisions that determine your life outcomes.
  • If you don’t believe in “can’t” and you are willing to recognize your inherent limitations, you can make changes.
  • What’s excuses are keeping you from moving forward?
  • We can achieve things that are beyond our comprehension in the current moment.
  • You have to recognize the difference between an excuse and a real limitation.
  • You probably have experiences that qualify you to do or teach things that others can’t.
  • I share an experience of a friend who was having trouble putting an online course together.
  • If there’s something you want to do, find someone who can help you do it.
  • Ask for help! We aren’t meant to do things alone.
  • You need to be willing to do something every day to reach your goal.
