Not old but worth a few moments of cogitation about the "culture of excuses". :D :

"People spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being, and not enough energy putting themselves on the line, growing out of the past, and getting on with their lives."

Practice makes perfect.

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.

And maybe you've heard a play off of the first one: "Practice makes permanent."

There is one on our refrigerator that says "If at first you don't succeed, redefine success". :D

Timeless sayings from a post on how to avoid getting scammed. (MoneyTalks News)

1. Testimonials are a testament only to gullibility.
2. "Documented proof" is neither documented nor proof.
3. Guarantees are no guarantee.
4. It's not fine to ignore the fine print.
5. Haste lays your savings to waste.
6. Seek and you shall find. (check independent resources)
7. Before listening to strangers, listen to strangers.
8. Use the help you've already hired.
9. Getting something free? You might be the product not the customer.
10. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

2Tim. 3:16,17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Why if medicine is a science do doctors "practice" medicine?
The same question can be asked of lawyers as regards the law.
