You Don't Try To Pick Up The Pen, You Either Pick It Up or You Don't!

In life there are only two options, you either do something or you don't. Don't be one of those people that say, "I am going to try to make money online" manifest and visualize it and make it come true, just do it!

    How many times have I heard Tony Robbins (and many others) say to people when they said they will "try" to do something that it means they already failed.

    Try is a bad word. And so is should.

    Bandler talks about "don't try to do something" but rather "give it a go". Totally different phrases and can have a massive influence on the way you approach things.

    Of course, if you don't want to "give it a go", then just say "I won't" instead of "I can't". Also a massive difference in the way we talk.

    We must know to differentiate between "trying" and "doing". Trying leads to nothing but wastage of time but "doing" leads to either success or failure. Both ways we learn. hence "just do it" attitude is very important. Get the available resources in place and take a plunge.

    There are so many people who don't want to pick up the ball and get rolling but demand things when they aren't showing the results or just aren't doing anything about it.

    That's very Yoda, isn't it? What did he say? "Do or do not, there is no try." ?

    It's all about taking action to get closer to your goal/dream. Great to manifest and visualize to set the tone, but don't forget the next step is to take action.
