If you don’t try, you never know.

You’ll never know if you could have accomplished that goal.

You’ll never know if your big idea was meant to be.

But just because you try one time doesn’t mean you know.

You don’t know.

One try means nothing. It’s not a predictor, a sign, or a trend. It’s just your first attempt.

More ceremonial than anything else.

Your first try is the starting line.

A new beginning. Starting something new.

Working towards a new goal.

Nothing amazing had ever been accomplished on the first attempt.

  • Robert Goddard designed two hundred ideas for rockets before he got one to fly into space.
  • Henry Ford went bankrupt five times before his automobile manufacturing idea started working
  • Fred Smith was giving a failing grade by his Yale professor because his idea for FedEx “wasn’t feasible”.
  • R.H. Macy went broke seven times before his clothing store caught on in New York City.
  • J.K. Rowling shopped her book thirteen times before a publisher would take a look at the first Harry Potter book.

So get started.

Try that first time.

Greatness is found long after trying has become interesting or fun.

You’ll never know unless you try. You still won’t know after that first try.

You’ll only know if you keep trying.
