One of the biggest mistakes we make when we're challenged or we fail is finding excuses to justify our failure. We need to feel comfort in knowing that something out of our control had an effect in our shortcoming.

But making excuses isn't doing anything but stroking your ego & getting you pats on the back. The true key to overcoming your obstacles isn't increasing your excuses, it's increasing your effort!!!!!! If you've tried and failed at something, try something else! Don't waste time 'creating' reasons for why you failed – just go harder, faster & stronger the next time. Make mistakes & try harder. Stop dwelling on failure or thinking about the reasons something won't work.

The only reason something 'won't work' is because you're not committed enough to follow through with it.

If you approach a goal with an average mindset, you will crumble at the first sign of adversity.

A great message well written.
Thank you for sharing +Jeremy Crow

+Maya Davis loves her some pie. :)
"It tastes the way eating gold or a ray of sunshine might feel. And when I eat it, it feels like I'm being hugged from the inside out."
 
Some days are hard. Some weeks are even harder--so hard you wonder if anyone sees the struggle in the eyes or the pain dumped into a dark corner (because you just don't have time to deal with it). But, sometimes, in the middle of all of that, you may get a gift that says simply, "I love you," and you realize that even if no one sees how hard life is, some people are still good and kind.

This piece of pie was a surprise from my Mom today. It's a recipe my grandmother made (and possibly her mother before her). It's lemon and uses real cream, whipped into the lightest puff, for the topping. It tastes the way eating gold or a ray of sunshine might feel. And when I eat it, it feels like I'm being hugged from the inside out. My mom had no idea (I surprised us both by breaking down and sobbing when she pulled it out of her cooler) how I've been feeling, but I am oh so grateful (and I know how time intensive this pie is, which makes the love she put into it even more beautiful) that she is still with me so I can get that internal and external hug one more time. See that piece of pie? That is love. I am grateful for every crumb.

I worked in the same building on the 8th floor for several years, and ate lunch there in every season. They make fresh brick-oven baked bread for sandwiches that is to die for and you have to arrive at 12:00 noon on the dot to get it fresh, but it's the best in NYC! Also, the chef makes the best soups on the planet. The cream of mushroom, the three bean chili, the vegetable soup, all must be tasted to be believed.
