While it is a natural thing to give excuses, this book will be arguing that giving excuses is not good enough. The reason is, that each time excuses come up it is an indication of the possibility to provide solutions. While these opportunities may be hidden in pain, injustices, discrimination, and hatred, it takes seeing beyond excuses to come up with solutions. The way to become significant and make an impact is by providing solutions. But you will never rise to the occasion if all you do is give excuses. You will remain stuck where you are if you keep giving “good excuses.” The bitter truth is that no matter how good you think your excuses are, the only thing they are doing for you is keeping you stuck in your present predicament.
