Don’t Stop Trying!

If it was easy everyone would do itGenerally speaking the best things in life come at a cost.

Whether it is money, or effort, or time; or some combination of those things, invariably there is some cost.

I would also suggest that very often that cost is greater than you expect!

So, when we want something or want to achieve something we need to keep that in mind.

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”  Dale Carnegie

The way we improve ourselves, and our lot in life is by investing in ourselves, by trying new things and by effort … a lot of effort!

More often than not, those ideas, projects or attempts at improvement will not work the first time.  They might even fail multiple times!

The biggest difference between those who achieve their dreams and those who do not is persistence … an unwillingness to give up on that dream.

“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Thomas Edison

  1. Thanks for this, I needed something like it today. I’ve been out of work for almost a year-and-a-half now, and no matter what I’ve tried — long story short, I’m like the William S. Burroughs of job hunting; you name it, I’ve tried it! — all I’ve had so far has been a couple phone interviews.

    It’s like the old adage: “Take one step forward, three steps back, just dig in your heels a little deeper next time”.


  2. I find that it is a matter of perspective. With the right perspective, problems become opportunities and what seem to be insurmountable challenges become more manageable. Finding this perspective often means taking a step back so that the bigger picture becomes more clear.
