When a person takes up a task, his determination and willpower helps him to complete it. When the person is determined enough to achieve something, he will do it no matter what. But some people take up tasks and then give excuses for not doing it. These people lack determination to complete their work.
They tend to give commitment without their will. When it comes to fulfilling their duties towards the job taken up, they find excuses for not being able to do it.
They have a laid back attitude. It is difficult for them to say “no” to someone in the first place, they try to be good to everyone; so they are considered as good people. But eventually they do not keep up their commitments and end up giving lame excuses. As the saying goes,
“Excuses are just lies wrapped up in a pretty paper.” ~Coach Sonny
Imagine a student being asked the reason for not doing his assignment. He says that his pen had stopped working. The excuses of people having this trait are very much the same.
In psychology and logic, rationalization, also known as making excuses, is a defense mechanism in which controversial behaviors or feelings are justified and explained in a seemingly rational or logical manner to avoid the true explanation, and are made consciously tolerable.
But if such a defense mechanism is used over and over again, it is very likely that people would stop taking them seriously. The success rate of such people is very less because they fail to complete what they start by the excuses they give.
Instead of putting in his mind to find excuses, the person can use that much of his thinking on working upon the task that he has taken up. Developing the determination to achieve their goals and not finding escape to all situations will increase the success rate for such people.
