"You can get sympathy or you can get better but you can’t get both.
You can be in your comfort zone or you can have growth, but you can’t have both.
You can be interested or you can be sold-out-committed, but you can’t entertain both.
You can have excuses or have results, but you can’t do both.
Choose the path that develops your visceral fortitude.”
- Mario Cortes
Sympathy and excuses are just ways to keep you from having to face a challenge. Avoid them like the plague.
