If at First You Don’t Succeed, Try, Try & Try Again
5 February 2018
Hello all. Happy February! Today I am going to discuss the importance of not giving up! Try, keep trying and try again.
Set Backs Happen, Keep Going
Sometimes in life, we experience set backs. We get knocked down. Things don’t go to plan. But do you know what? That’s life. The best possible way to deal with situations you perhaps weren’t expecting is to not give in, ever.
Those of us who give in at the first hurdle are not dedicated. If you want something enough, you won’t stop trying. Yes, all of us have days where multiple little things seem to go wrong, however, it is your perception of these which ultimately affect how you feel. Don’t sweat the small stuff!
Take A Break
If you feel like things are getting on top of you, instead of uncomfortably pushing through your endless list of jobs, stop. Breathe. Take some time out for yourself. The state of your own mind is so vital to your happiness. Get up, get out, go for a walk. Clear your head, breathe in some fresh air. Calm your mind, meditate if you wish to.
No matter what is happening in your life, there are always a number of things to be grateful for. It is down to you to recognise them. Try not to let yourself get beaten down by anything, failure makes us stronger. Often, it really makes us realise our full potential and just how powerful we are.
If you allow yourself to see the positive side of situations, you will instantly feel a lot better about yourself. As the famous quote goes:
“If a first you don’t succeed, try, try and try again.” – William Hickson
I find this truly inspiring, it is a great reminder that we have the power in our own hands, hearts and minds to keep being persistent. If you want it, you will achieve it. Believe in yourself and the powers that be.
This is very applicable to my current situation and this post is, as always, written from the heart. I have inspired myself while writing it, so I hope at least one of you will find so inspiration today.
