I have learned from experience that the only failure in life is not believing you have the ability to succeed. If you try something new and like it or don't like it, you should try again just to make sure your first impression was correct. Self-reliance is the greatest gift you can give yourself.

If at first you don't succeed....

by bernardtwindwil

We all know the old shibboleth "Never give up."

There are times when it just doesn't make sense to keep failing. If you keep trying the same strategies to accomplish something and keep failing, reevaluate your strategy or goals.

Is your goal possible for you to accomplish?

Somethings are physically impossible. I cannot become an NBA center. No strategy will make that happen. A blind person cannot become a pilot. You cannot paint the vatican red.

Are your strategies rational?

I cannot go to art school and become a physician. I cannot harvest wild boar with a squirt gun., not even a super soaker. I cannot clean up post flooding with facial tissues. No matter how.

When your dreams and strategy are in alignment...

Ask a friend what they think. Ask someone you think is an expert. Get your ducks in a row. Then announce your mission to succeed.s.

Your dreams become goals as soon as you work on them.

The reality of goals are always derived from dreams. One who only plans is a dreamer. One who only works is a drudge. But one who dreams and works a plan is a conquerer.

Never, ever give up!!!!!!

There is not much in this world that is worse than to see somebody accco,plish your dreams after you have given up.

@michaelschulze @sivaranjanisent @rainandsnow @dory @jeremiah @rancelandstrong Every time you reach for the stars and fail you have to see that maybe you'll give up on the step ladder and try rockets.

I agree with the part where you say that one must try again to ensure that we like what we do.
