“I am not discouraged because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward”. - Thomas A. Edison.
Very hard to accept, but it’s all you need to succeed. In reality any successful person is a product of trial who knows the danger of not making an attempt, accept that looking stupid so to say is what is needed to be ahead, the rest are the opposite. I love how Mercedes Lackey put it to support my assertion, “If it is stupid but it works, it isn't stupid.” Come to think of it, no one ever negate the popular statement of “practice makes improvement or perfection”. I am not surprised anyway because of another popular slogan “easier said than done”
If you care to achieve great things, I think you will consider this according to Robert Francis Kennedy, the renowned American politician, and United States Senator. “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.” Wake up from your day dreaming, your role model is not a product of overnight success, if you love the achievement, investigate what it required. You don’t have to go far, keep trying whatever you could in such direction, and leave the rest. “Great things happen to those who don't stop believing, trying, learning, and being grateful” says Roy T. Bennett in “The Light in the Heart”.
“A bruise is a lesson... and each lesson makes us better.” - George R.R. Martin. Until you have what it takes to justify the achievement, you are purely wishing. You can’t achieve it sitting, but if you love wishing than the reality of having it, you are in a perfect state. Roy T. Bennett is aware that, fear and failure are good friend who have what it takes to make you better or worst when he says, “Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.” I guaranteed, trying will not only convince you, but gradually makes your dream a come true.
Never Give Up!
