Trying Isn't Good Enough

I hate to tell you this but trying just
isn't good enough...

Whenever someone says "I'll try" it
should be followed with "but it ain't
gonna happen."

Don't get me wrong - making positive
change in our lives IS very difficult...

And we will all fail to reach our goals
from time to time...

And that's OK...

Our failures are just speed bumps on the
road towards our goals.

But if you're just "trying" you need 
an attitude adjustment pronto!

Google (which according to my daughter
knows everything) defines "to try" as

"Try - to make an attempt or effort to do something"

Hmmmmm....

Is making "an attempt" to do something good enough?

Not in my book.

Trying just isn't gonna get you to where you need
to be. It's a weak word that reflects your equally
weak commitment.












Instead of "trying" we need to STRIVE!

"Strive - to make GREAT efforts to accomplish or
obtain something"

So next time you think to yourself "I
should try that" STOP!

Re-assess your commitment level and
if it's something you really want make a
conscious decision to strive for it!

You can do it! I know you can - as long
as you don't try ;-))
