20 Motivational Quotes to Avoid Making Excuses

quotes for no excuses

Making an excuse is one of the leading factors which prevent you from achieving your goal. Everyone makes excuses at some point in their life. However, there are times when the reason is justified, but most of the time, we make excuses just because we are lazy, afraid, or we don’t care much about the things we need to do. Excuses confine us to our present situation and hold us back from moving forward in life. We need to find a way to get rid of this habit if we desire to go where we want to be. These excuses quotes can be a great way to help you become more focused and driven and not make any more excuses.

If you keep making excuses, you will sabotage your entire life goals and dreams. Be someone who takes action and not someone who makes excuses if you want to make your dreams a reality. Excuses will never make your dreams come true.

intrinsic motivation

“Pop” Behaviorism, Intrinsic Motivation, & Trauma

Stop the madness!


Token economies, level systems, behavioral management plans, IEPs, Positive Behavioral Support, RTI, light systems, and the list goes on and on.

It seems like everywhere you look in the helping, parenting, criminal justice, or educational world you see systems of rewards and punishments designed to control and change behavior.

Unfortunately, many of these are designed by people without much understanding of behavioral science or neurobiology and often result in unintended consequences that do more harm than good.

In this episode, Matt and Curt examine the cost of many of these popular approaches, how they fail those with unresolved trauma, and how we can help those we serve to find their own internal motivation.
