Finding an excuse is easy. Finding an opportunity is not so easy. With the right materials, anything is possible. This is also true of the wrong materials, but that anything may not be the thing that you’re looking for.
I’m not sure I totally agree with Frank’s drawing of me today. Personally, I think that it’s an easy excuse to blame the materials (in certain situations). We can’t control how we are made, we can’t control who makes us. We can only control every moment after that. It doesn’t matter where you came from, it only matters where you’re going and how you’re going to get there. Sure, there are days when I’d love to bathe myself in an easy excuse… just to get through the day. But that’s just the day. What about the next day and the next and the next? Excuses eventually expire. The best bet is to not make any excuses in the first place. Right?
I’m not saying it’s easy. It’s way easier to find an excuse than an opportunity. Just keep looking.
Always keep looking. Always keep looking.
