"Excuses are like assholes.....everyone has one!"  Aint this the truth!!  How many of you have heard, or maybe you are actually one of these people, that before you workout with a group, or you go to a competition, or you have a test, or an interview, etc and you begin to pad the people around you with ALL KINDS OF EXCUSES about why you won't do well, how you are feeling very good, how you don't really care how you do, how you haven't been practicing, etc, etc, etcThe list could go on and on.  Why do we do this?  Well, here's the real reason: its painting the scene so that if we fail, well then it's obvious we weren't supposed to do very well anyways because of the "excuse".  Basically, no one will look down on us.  But then if we do well, then everyone will be so proud of us because we somehow overcame the issues of the "excuse" and the whatever we had to do all at the same time.  Congrats to us!! Come on!!!  This is one gigantic insecurity that comes out and bleed all over the place.  Do you care what other people think about you?  Hopefully not.  And if you don't then you won't feel the need to take these precautions to try to "save face."   Yes, you will have some days you are on fire and others where you just absolutely suck.  That's ok.  But instead of worrying about what to say to people, take the time come up with backup plans to your first go around.  It doesn't matter what you are doing, there will ALWAYS be the chance of things going south.  But if you are prepared for that, then if it happens you will be able to self-adjust and still keep moving forward.  In most cases, if you are still moving forward and making progress, then you will win, or at least do well. However, if you start to fail and rely on these cheese-ball excuses to try to cover up your "whatever" then you will always be that; just a cheese-ball excuse.  Don't give excuses.  Do your best and be proud of your best.  If you could have done more then you should have. It's that simple. :)

FEEL THE BURN!!!
