Sometimes when I discuss the stock market, or a business, the person I am talking with will say they “tried the stock market once”, and the results they achieved were minimal if any.
As I listen to the language, I hear lots of things that are “tried”……
- I tried quitting smoking
- I tried starting a business once
- I tried the stock market once
- I tried losing weight
- I tried managing once
- I tried talking to him
- blah blah blah……
Almost always, after every one of these phrases, there is a big fat “but”……. “But, something got in the way of my success”. Could your lack of success be because you only “tried”?
I remember when I went to college, I didn’t just “try” college. I did college. I decided I was going to go, and I gave it all I got. Any time I have just “tried” to lose weight, I have been unsuccessful. Only when I decided to lose weight, and make the tough choices, did I actually succeed.
Stop just “trying” life. Instead, DECIDE to live it! Determine what you want, and give it all you got!
