It’s easy to say that we can’t do something or that it’s too difficult. That we’re failing or on the path to failure, or that someone else could do it better. We might as well give up and throw in the towel.
But, have we tried? Really tried?
Not everything in life is easy. As a matter of fact most things aren’t, especially if we want them done right. There are times however, when getting to the point of success can be exhausting, and the road begins to look bleak. We feel like we’ve tried everything we can think of, yet nothing seems to work.
So why keep trying? If it’s something that we want to be successful at, then we must. It’s not the time to give up. It’s time to try harder.
When difficulties come and we find ourselves at a loss of what to do next, that’s when we must look outside the box. Not everything is black and white. Not everything can be done ‘by the book’. We must brainstorm and try new ways; not just think about them. We must look in new directions and from a different point of view, and experiment to see what works.
If it’s truly important to us, then we’ll do whatever it takes.
Most importantly we must give it our all, not just half. “Half the effort equals half the results.” If we want success, then we have to work for it. Success doesn’t come on its own.
But, what if we’ve tried everything and it still doesn’t work? Sometimes it won’t, but that doesn’t mean that we’ve failed. Failure only comes when we fail to try. So let’s give it our all and see what happens. Success could be right around the corner.
