Cure Yourself of Excusitis, the Failure Disease

Cure Yourself of Excusitis, the Failure Disease

“Make hay while the sun shines” is an apropos
in the contemporary time that felicitates the failure of the people in every sphere of life. In a more sophisticated way this psychological disease has been termed as excusitis or the failure disease.
This arises when a person who is mediocre in his/her approach to life procrastinates some work or aim in his life until the doomsday. This behaviour has become a very general form in the teenagers of our times, but we must get rid of this to be a successful person in life. After studying the lives of successful people and you’ll discover this: all the excuses made by mediocre men as well but they are never made by the successful persons.
You will never see or hear of a highly successful business executive, military officer, salesman, professional person, or leader in any field who could not have found one or more major excuses to hide behind. Roosevelt could have hidden behind his lifeless legs; Truman could have used “no college education”; Kennedy could have said, “I’m too young to be president”; Johnson and Eisenhower could have ducked behind heart attacks. 
Just imagine the places where Roosevelt and Truman would have if they wanted to just give in to the difficulties of their lives. But all of them went out to lead a life of examples for their fellow citizens and went on to lead by examples of success and hard work.

There are mainly four types of excusitis that a person experiences in general: health, intelligence, age, luck. As in case of some other diseases this disease also has a profound effect upon the common masses. If excusitis gets deep seated in a person then his subconscious mind will always be apprehensive of taking the challenge on face and accept the failures. The burden of failure will be pushed on a plethora of reasons which can sometimes be trifling to nonsensical. However, as with some of the problems there are some stepping stones as well in this situation that can help in the long run. The first and foremost is that u never underestimate in any given situation, while simultaneously we should not be complacent of others who are in constant competition with us. As a second step one needs to mend the attitudes. The attitude to succeed can at times be a much more of a guiding factor than the talent required for a certain work. And lastly, the greatest of all will be the ability to think rather than ability to memorise. The ability to think helps u to chalk out everything in a crystal-clear manner. While on the other hand the ability to memorise always traps you into a honeycomb from where there is no coming out. American author and the writer of the book: The Magic of Thinking Big, David Schwartz tells us that we need to upgrade our thinking in order to upgrade our life. The pre-requisite to “big” things in life is the ability to think that those “big” things are achievable. In the eyes of the author success has very little to do with intelligence, having rich parents, being lucky, or whatever. He claims that “success” is determined not so much by the size of one’s brain as it is by the size of one’s thinking.
On a concluding note we can say that excusitis will always dawn upon the populace as a great psychological stress that goes into a long-drawn illness of procrastinating the things that are the dearest to our lives. Doing things at the time that they are meant to be done goes in a long way to save us from the fatalities of time and save us from becoming a fish in the troubled waters when the magnanimity of the task burdens our shoulders. As we edge on the world of globalization and when we have to meet deadlines be it that of work or that of assignments, projects etc nobody will take failure to meet the obligations in due time. Also, through the various examples we can see that history has been a witness to the winners who have acted in the present and not though about failures of past and worry of the results of the future, and will continue to do so. In the end to summarise one quote becomes very pertinent to this problem: “Losers will have a thousand excuses as to why he failed, why he couldn’t do a work. But winners may have a thousand excuses of not doing a work but just one strong reason to do that same work, to be successful at last.”
