Reasons Versus Excuses [Podcast]


We believe that there is a reason for our behavior. we do not believe that there are words, actions, or thoughts that are just random and have no meaning. If the opposite were true, how would you explain some self defeating behaviors?

In this week’s Real Life Podcast, co-hosts Lou and John discuss the similarities, differences, and consequences of reasons versus excuses.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why we self-sabotage ourselves
  • The difference between ‘nature’ and ‘nurture’
  • What role Common Sense plays in our excuses
  • Why choosing responsibility is the best way to live
