    Wisdom From A Navy SEAL on The Power of Overcoming Excuses

    How do excuses take hold? An excuse starts as a protective measure. It shields us from pain, saves our pride, keeps our ego from being punc­tured, allows us to obscure the brutal truth. That feels like a relief at first. We avoided the pain. Then we lay another excuse on top of the first. Then […]
