Making Excuses...


Clara F from 6B brought a book to school about making excuses called "No Excuses" How What You Say Can Get In Your Way" by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. This is what it says:

" To make or not to make excuses is a choice you have every day. Now here is another choice: you can throw away the list of excuses and make a promise to yourself that you will not let excuses get in your way. Without excuses, you are free to be anything you want to be!"
What do you think?
Thank you Clara!

Hi Miss Ale,

I think that what is said in that book is completely correct because no excuses in life are essential because when we grow if we are working and results are not good we can not have excuses because if the excuse is true or not you will be dismissed from work, so now that we are young we have to learn not to have excuses and to face the situation.

Hi miss Ale
She is right you shouldnt put excuses in your life because your life is going to get harder and maybe you lie and you give the fault to the other boy when its your fault, or you put excuses when you didnt bring your homework or you arrived late, your problems are your problems

Hello Miss Ale

I totally agree with this writer. One shouldn´t make excuses for ones mistakes but face the consequences. As we grow older, we will have greater responsibilities and we cannot avoid them with excuses

Hi Miss Ale,

I loved the sentence, what it said in the book is really interesting and correct. It was interesting that it started me to right all excuse words correctly to know how to write them. And in life you will always have or write excuse words and you have to spell them correctly.

Sometimes you have to give excuses when you don't want to do something. It's better than lie, but you have to say the true always!

Yes, I think that is better to do what you are supposed to do. Because in Spanish there is a popular saying: "Lies have short legs."

Hi miss Ale

I think it is very correct because if you say the truth almost always the thing that you did wrong will disapear and you will learn alot by telling the truth.

NOw i understand that excuses are like lies.. and everytime you make excuses it turns into a habbit and sometimes instead of putting excuses we have to face the situatyion ourselves. Because if not, when we grow we will make axcuses for EVERYTHING so we have to learn to put no excuses when we are young!

Hi miss Ale! How are you today? I am very well! Here I leave you my grate opinion!
I think that what says in this post is correct! I agree with all my friends! I think that the book that Clara brought is interesant to read, because all this NO excuse words are the ones in which we use them to escape from something wrong we do. And that are wrong solutions that we, humans do wrong. We dont have to be cowards, the NO excuse words dont serve for nothing. I think that we should use the "excuse words". That is all my opinion.
Regards for all!

I think it is completely correct because if we always have excuses we will never now have to face them so now that we still have time to face them we must try not to make excuses. We must learn to face the excuses and face the consequences instead of making an excuse that most of the people now a days do.

Hi! I am from Washington, U.S. I think that the book is correct. If you make excuses, you are weighed down by them. If you say you can't do P.E. because your foot hurts, you won't be allowed to walk to your friend's house.

Dear Miss Ale,
In my opinion, the book is absolubtely correct. Excuses would never be a good thing in life. Always say the truth and you will always be a grateful person. Excuses are similar to lies and there is a popular saying " Lies have a short life, but truth lives on forever ". That's why you'll never have to say an excuse or the soon or the later you will have problems.
See you tomorrow,

Hello Miss Ale

I think this books has all the truth because the exuses can be lies or they can be true but if we all think the exuses allways have solutions....

Hello mis Ale!! Sometimes it is easier to find excuses for not doing something. But in the end you olways have to finish doing what you have to do. So it is quicklier to finish it at once.

Hi ale
I think that the author had a very good idea, spesialy for some children of school who make exuses for not doing the homework.
And if you put an exuse then you are the one who later feels worst.
An exuse it the same as a lie.

Hi Miss Ale,

I think that this I just read is correct, and also think that we should try in life (if we usualy use excuses) to litle by litle rub them out of are way. Because sometimes we say I forgot to do the homewok, ou never mind I will have an excuse. The point is that if we live by inventing excuses when the time arrives to work will always lie and never get done are work.

Wow! I totally agree with what you stated from the book. It's true. People think that making excuses will help clear problems, but it won't. It will get worse. Even know, young people at our ages are thinking that making excuses will be a quick-fix. The problem will just get bigger. Just come clean and everything will be great. Think of it this way, Wouldn't you rather get a consiquence for doing something wrong or get an even worse consequence for doing something wrong AND making an excuse about it? Making excuses wont help you. At all.

Peace,

Samantha

Hi, I think that Dr. Wayne W. Dyer makes an excellent point. Excuses does just get in your way, and we should all try to avoid it as much as possible. Also, if you keep on making excuses everyday or everytime there's A strong possibility that you will keep on making excuses and make it a habit. From now on I shan't let excuses get in my way too.

I think is true
I sometimes say excuses like trying to safe of some trouble that im in.
