A: Hi, I am Angelina Neglia. I am here with Scott MacDonald, author of Saving Investa. In the book, Scott shares 25 lessons learned from his long and successful career.
S: Angie, winners find a way to succeed despite obstacles and unexpected difficulties. Successful people find a way to succeed despite the challenges they confront. People who fail almost always have excuses, often valid, sometimes not valid. But I have found when you are responsible for a project and all you hear back are excuses, you are probably dealing with a loser who is more comfortable making excuses than finding a way to accomplish the objective.
Successful people focus on what they can do and find their way around obstacles. They don’t waste time blaming others or feeling sorry for their situation. Blame does not solve problems and neither do excuses.
A: This is Angelina Neglia talking with author Scott MacDonald. So, no excuses. Look for Scott’s new book, available November 2015.
