Lynda Omerekpe: Excuses Are Predators.

Have you ever been in a situation where you made a mistake or did something wrong but couldn’t explain just how it happened? YES…I’ve been there too.

Then did you try to make excuses for your actions or try to blame someone else for what happened? Probably you had to make excuses to abate the effects of the consequences, e.g. using traffic as excuse for coming late to work…yeah I’m guilty of that too. But the worst mistake one can ever make in life is to blame the world, society, background, environment etc. for not achieving your dreams. Your life goes in the path that you decide not what it throws at you. What have you desired to accomplish that you’ve been making excuses for?

Excuses are life’s predators seeking to prey on those who are willing to succumb to its deceitful acts. It tends to feed on the part of a human that makes him/her take responsibility for their life, actions and decisions. Excuses take away the zeal to fight, the courage to push forward and the maturity to take responsibility for your actions. Sometimes, it can slow down a person’s growth in life…keeping him/her stagnant and ignorant. This is because when people know that there’s always a means of escape they restrain from pushing themselves out of their comfort-zone; choosing instead to wallow in quagmire. Till you leave your comfort zone, you never know how far you can go in life.

When you make a mistake, admit that you have; by so doing you stand a chance of learning something new by taking corrections. Taking full responsibility of your actions, makes you accountable for what happens in your life – this will motivate you to keep yourself in check, be diligent in all things and strive for excellence.

The key factors you will need are Determination and Focus. Someone who is determined has no limitations, there’s absolutely nothing he/she cannot achieve. When you’re determined, you will be willing to succeed against all odds and will want to learn from mistakes. You can literally spread your wings and fly as high as you can. Finally, NEVER lose your focus; keep your gaze on those things you need to achieve that dream, keep at it and never give up.

No more excuses…it’s time to take responsibility and do something.

 There’s a lesson to learn in every mistake,

An opportunity to excel in every challenge,

It all depends on how you look at it…

    I have been using this system for some time now; I will be showing you how to make unlimited cash with your liberty reserve account and a perfect money account. I will try to make it as short as possible. But clear, just like every other business your interest and seriousness counts.

    "The reward for hard work is success".


    1. open a liberty reserve account at ( this is free).

    2. Open a perfect money account at (this is free).

    3. Fund your liberty reserve account with a minimum of 11 USD, because of transaction charges, actually you needed a minimum of 10 USD.

    (Note: To fund or sell your liberty reserve, go to to search for an e-currency exchanger close to you.)

    4. Go to , and exchange 10 USD from your liberty reserve account to your perfect money account.

    1 LR——>1.28 PM, so 10 LR—-> 12.80 PM.

    5. Go to or , exchange 12.80 Perfect money to 11.01liberty reserve.

    1 PM —-> 0.86 LR, so 12.80 PM—>11.01 LR. You have gain 1.01 USD.

    6. Repeat the exchange process from LR—->PM—>LR.

    You can always increase your capital, because the more money you exchange the faster u make your cash. I can make up to 257 USD per day. Doing up to 25 exchanges per hour. But there is also no harm in starting small.
