When you did something wrong, or you forgot to do something you know you should have done, get in the habit of responding, "No excuses. I was wrong." This will increase your sense of courage. This will prevent many arguments. This will enhance your integrity.
The difficulty of saying, "No excuses. I was wrong," is only in the beginning. After saying this a number of times, one will experience these words as empowering.
(From Rabbi Pliskin's book, "Courage")
