“Excuses, to me, are the common denominator of failure because they paralyze us,” says Jon Taffer, author of the new book “Don’t ******** Yourself, Crush The Excuses That Are Holding You Back.” “When we give an excuse, it really rationalizes a mistake. When you give an excuse, either it’s because you didn’t do something you should have, you did something you shouldn’t have, or you made a bad choice -- or you would never use the excuse in the first place.”

TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Have family drama that needs that help?

Taffer, star of the popular TV show, “Bar Rescue” and co-host of the new show “Face The Truth,” joins Dr. Phil on Tuesday’s episode to offer advice to parents who continue to support their 31-year-old son. While the parents claim he is violent and refuses to move out of their house, the son says his parents aren’t doing enough to help him get on his feet. Will the young man listen to Dr. Phil and Taffer? Will he finally move out of his parents’ house? Check here to see where you can watch.

"Face The Truth" is executive produced by Dr. Phil McGraw and his son, Jay.
