47 Excuses that will keep you from being GREAT!

We all want to succeed, right? And for pretty much all of us, we define success as being great at something – whether it’s being the best real estate team in Billings, being a fantastic parent, or supporting the right football team (and here at the Ashley Delp Team, there might be slight disagreement about just what team that is!)  GOOOO CATZ! 
So what is an excuse? Well the definition is: 
3rd person present: excuses
  1. Attempt to lessen the blame attaching to (a fault or offense); seek to defend or justify.
The million dollar question, though, is how are you going to be great? Sometimes knowing what NOT to do is as important as knowing what to do.
