What have these 5 things in common? They’re some of the conscious or unconscious excuses we give ourselves to stop trying – ways to justify not doing more and feeling ok about it.
Driven people are never satisfied. They constantly come up and try to do more. If they scored 3 goals, they’ll be as hungry when they try to get the fourth as they were when they got the first 3.
You don’t necessarily have to be that intense but, if you don’t know when you’re making excuses, you’ll always have a hard time knowing when you’re underperforming and hurting your chances to reach further.
