You had an idea, but you didn’t do anything about it. Then you make an excuse why you didn’t do what you know you were supposed to do. Sounds familiar?
In this video, Jackie talks about:

The benefit of self-reflection
People who constantly make excuses try to alleviate responsibility and accountability. The problem is, the only person they hurt are themselves. So be real with yourself and start taking responsibility. Keep in mind that you have the power to receive or reject positive changes in your life. If you're not ok with being in the same place this time next year, stop making excuses.
