Stop Trying and Start Succeeding

Recently I was forwarded this You Tube video and wanted to share it with you. Some of you may find this a little cheesy. Apologies if you do, but I disagree, and think the sentiment and the symbolism are where the learning's based.

Too often in life we tend to 'try'. The inference is we've already failed or don't expect much to happen. When we give things all we have we tend to succeed more often than not. Nelson Mandela was so right when he said "we're not afraid of the dark, we're more afraid of the light". We've been programmed over many years to believe certain things to be true about ourselves. We're completely surprised when others see abilities in us we don't believe we possess. That's why it's nigh on impossible to succeed alone. We need help to grow into bigger versions of ourselves and the encouragement of others to bring out the latent talent and potential others see in us.

Let me know your thoughts on the video and what it brings up for you...

I have to agree with you. You don't necessarily need to try something to succeed. Sometimes you need to be dedicated in order to achieve your goals.
