Try Try Try

“But just because it burns doesn’t mean you’re gonna die. You’ve gotta get up and try, try, try.” Pink

Everyone has goals they want to achieve. We all have dreams and ideas about what we want to do and where we want to go. The easy stuff doesn’t take much, we just make a plan and get it done, but some things take a lot of work and trial and error. If we’ve been pushing toward something we really want and we keep hitting roadblocks or the way ahead gets blocked, or we get off track or a thousand other things get in the way, we may begin to think we can’t do it. Trying to do something new isn’t always easy. We can’t read the future and it’s impossible to see the end from the beginning. We don’t know what we don’t know, and the first or second or third or fourth time we try, we may stumble. Every goal we desire is worth what it takes to get it, but trying takes courage and may require great stamina and focus. It’s wonderful to win and succeed and when we do we may feel jubilant and satisfied, but the winning is the reward. All the lessons and growth we gain come when we’re trying and pushing ahead. We learn what doesn’t work, we see where the pitfalls are, and we discover new things about ourselves and the world around us. Running across the finish line is igreat, but the gifts we get during the journey to get there are the blessing. We are stronger and more powerful than we think we are, and can do anything we like. Every single destination awaits, and with patience, focus and determination, nothing can keep us from success.

There may be times when the challenges we’re facing are so intense and so overwhelming we may think there is no way we can survive. The bar is just too high and the cost is just too great. We are in control of our lives and if we want to, we can let go of any goal at any time. We don’t need to justify it or make excuses. We can simply step away and do something else. But if the goal is important to us and we want to achieve it, there isn’t anything that can keep us from it. The road may be difficult, we may have to bend in ways we’ve never considered before but that doesn’t mean we have to stop. Nothing lasts forever, and if we keep stepping forward, we will win.

It’s unlikely we’ll ever be in a life or death situation where if we don’t do something exactly correct we will die. It may seem during times of intense duress that we won’t live through it, but that will never be true. If we stop and look at everything objectively and openly, we will find the way forward even in the most complex situations. We are intelligent and wise, and there isn’t anything we can’t do. We have all the courage and strength needed to accomplish any goal and reach any destination.

Today if you’ve been trying and trying to reach a goal and it’s still far in the distance, trust yourself. Every road is there for you and you will find all the answers you need. Be confident and continue forward. All your dreams are possible and they are waiting for you. Stand strong and take another step. You are amazing and will reach success.
