Excuses and overcoming them
Excuses, whining and Sacking up
As much as I love California there is one thing I immediately noticed,
people whine, make every possible excuse and bitch a lot. While it
may not be strictly a California issue, it sure is a lot more prevalent
here. If someone does not get a job or promotion, it is because they
are African/Asian/Hispanic/White. Not because they had a poor interview
or lacked experience. If someone is out of shape or
plump, it is because of genetics or because of the evil fast food
industry. Not because of their total lack of any physical movement
and inhalation of junk/fast/fating food. If you fail a test it because
the professor hates you and was out to get you, it had nothing to
do with you trying to cram 4 chapters of organic chemistry the night
before. I think you all get my point. So why all the excuses?
Simple. People do not want to be held accountable for their failures,
rather they need a scapegoat, because heaven forbid, they are at fault.
Of course if anything goes right, people are quick to praise them
self, however it is not a double standard as people will use everything
and anything to place the blame on.
Another personal gripe I have is how everyone takes everything for
granted. "So why are you in such a bad mood," I ask flustered
friend of mine. "I didn't get a chance to eat anything."
I want to slap him right there. Just because he did not get his daily
Starbucks frappuccino and low-carb burger, he has a perfectly valid
excuse for acting like an asshat to everyone. Obviously I am blind
to see that he has it much worse then the starving kids in third-world
countries how dare those kids and their infomercials when here at
home my friend didn't get his meal.
So where exactly am I going with this article. Simply put, to grow
a pair and sac up. Don't have time to workout? I am taking
17 units this quarter, have two jobs, an eight hour internship, volunteer
for a clinic on Saturday mornings and still make time to get drunk
with my frat and make it to the gym. Sure it means cutting a few hours
off the television and waking up a little early. "I am too skinny/fat,
and so are my parents there is no point in working out." That is B.S.!
If you are happy the way your body is then kudos to you,
but do not pull the genetics excuse on me. All around the world people
are doing extraordinary feats, look at Lance Armstrong, I personally
am not a Tour De France fan whatsoever but the guy isawesome.
Look at all that he has accomplished while overcoming countless obstacles.
So what separates the likes of Lance and others who are able rise
among the ranks. NOTHING, ABSOLUTLEY NOTHING. We all have the potential
to do TREMENDOUS things in our lifetime. Some of you will be world
class athletes, others lawyers, doctors any thing you can
imagine. Others will live with your parents and perhaps bag groceries
and one day move on up to fetching the carts in the parking lot. You
are your biggest fan and critic, which means you, can push your self
as far as you want and hold you back. Some of us are able to look
past our weaknesses and push through to reach our goals, others will
keep passing the blame and hope for hand me downs. I hope each and
every one of you got something out of my random rant. To finish, part
of a famous/motivational speech I have on my wall:
"Winning is not a sometime thing, it's an all-the-time thing.
You don't win once in a while, you don't do things right once in a
while, you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately
so is losing."
- Vince Lombardi
I hope you all make the right habits.
