So……can you really “try” to do something?
You will either do it or you can’t/won’t.
No “ifs” about it.
Go get a pencil. Set it in front of you. “Try” to pick it up. Chances are you will – and fairly easily. OR you will just sit and stare at the pencil and you won’t/can’t pick it up. “Trying” to pick the pencil up would be futile, like the pencil was super-glued to the table top.
So next time you find yourself saying “I’ll try….” (sigh) or “I’M TRYING!” (grrr) stop and take a deep breath. And either do it to the best of your ability (some days are better than others!!) or don’t/can’t (and you can’t blame anyone else but yourself.)
GO FOR IT!!! MAKE IT A GREAT DAY BY DOING, AND BEING THE BEST YOU WE KNOW THAT YOU ARE! BELIEVE IT TO BE SO! (AND QUIT ‘TRYING’!)
