Publisher's Summary

Do you make excuses? Then start listening and help yourself by getting it done!

Stop procrastinating and start living! These 50 excuses will be an eye-opener, as you may recognize some of them yourself (even I did). As human beings, we all make excuses, which is a softer form of lying, to ourselves and others. But facing the truth and doing something about it, help you progress faster and become more successful. In this book, I will point out each time:


What the excuse is. Some of these will blow your mind.
Why people use this excuse; the reasons make sense, some more than others.
The cold, hard truth, something you may need to see things in a better perspective.
And how to solve it. Things to tell yourself or to do in order to stop the lies.

Curious yet? Then don't wait and start listening. These 50 excuses will surprise you, and the help you will get from the solutions and the truth, could help change your life.

    "Positive!!!!"

    The title says it all. If you want to live a great life, don't make excuses. Recognize when you are making excuses and correct it. After reading Extreme Ownership, I already had these ideas implanted in my head, but a little positive reinforcement doesn't hurt.

    "Impressive one!!!"
    What did you love best about Excuses?

    I'm so glad a salesman told me how much this book helped him turn around his life. He had such a good energy. And I bought the whole house water filtration system he was selling with no regrets. This book showed me I'm on the right track at least..


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is pretty clear - stop fussing over what I don't want... I can't seem to get enough of it though and this book is exactly what I need.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Tingle – was your favorite?

    Great performance!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Great Grab!!!

    What made the experience of listening to Excuses the most enjoyable?

    You don't have to live your life being unhappy. Instead of wishing that your life could be different, get up and make it happen. Ditch the excuses and start reaching for the life you've always wanted.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yup heard it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    EXCUSES is the book for anyone who is tired of trying to make it work and can't seem to reach those unreachable goals. Don't let ordinary excuses ruin your dreams of success.

    "Gives excellent information.."

    I am so glad I did. I found this book a very easy listen with a kick. Mel does a great job at getting to the bottom of the internal demons I think we all have and shows a way to overcome them to live a life of fun, adventure, and purpose. This book, I swear, was written for my benefit. If you are serious about getting the most out of your precious time on this earth, read this book! Thank you Mel!!!

    Yes i heard it in one sitting!!!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good book that was quite inspiring. It really pulled my heartstrings and caused me to take stock myself as an artist and a child of God. I gave it four stars instead of five because there were some editing issues and unnecessarily repeated ideas. Other than those few things it was a great book

    "Worth it!!!!"

    This was a freebie when I downloaded it but I would pay full price (whatever it cost). I was so encouraged and inspired after listening it. I love that he writes humorously, straight from the hip. I have never been told before how creativity is like an act of worshipping God but it really is! It makes me appreciate my creativity instead of hide it.

    "Challenged to get started!!!"

    For many of us, just getting off the couch can be a challenge. This book forces you to consider what is keeping you there. It is a quick listen, which means I can listened it again and again. And I will.

    Recognizing that we each have something to offer others can be a tough obstacle to overcome. However, when we stop looking for fame or the approval of others and see what we do as an act of worship and obedience to God the focus shifts.

    If you are looking for some motivation to get started, or just some encouragement because you feel like quitting your creative endeavors, read this book and find both.

    "Excuses: Stop Making These 50 Excuses!"
    Where does Excuses rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This Book Will surely goes to a first position..<br/>when i grabbed it was in a good position and i liked this Book!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Excuses?

    It changed my life and when I start over thinking things, wondering why something is, I listen to parts of it and feel much better about what choices I have and that I just need to get on with it. Being human isn't as complicated as we make out sometimes!


    What about Michael Tingle’s performance did you like?

    Nice performance.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no reaction.

    "ALL NEED TO LISTEN THIS BOOK"
    Any additional comments?

    It started out good. I love the explaination and understanding of vibrational frequency and how it's out there in life looking for a match. There were several points where the narrator started to sound preachy and it was hard not to wander off mentally. I felt like it was contradictory to what The author was trying to advocate throughout her book on trying to stay on a positive frequency. I'll have to listen to certain parts again because of it. She kind of lost me later on in the book.
