Even the Best Excuse Doesn't Feel As Good As Success by Dr. Tony Alessandra
*Years ago the swim coach had this taped to the door of the pool. I made a copy and saved it.
The world, according to author, salesman, and speaker extraordinaire Don Hutson, consists of winners and whiners. "Have you ever noticed that you seldom hear highly successful people whining?" he asks. Instead, everyone silently cheers when whiners leave the room and take with them their own personal dark clouds that have been hovering over their heads.
Whiners make excuses; winners just get the job done. Having a good excuse for a poor performance doesn't compare with the thrill of having produced excellent results.
