Nothing you do once really works.

You might get good results from that one time, but you didn’t really change anything.

Success demand progress. And progress comes from momentum. That momentum is carved out of the bedrock of consistent effort.

So while trying is important, it’s probably not going to change much for you right now.

Which is why you might decide that trying isn’t all that important.

Because nothing change right away.

The results you thought you would get from trying something new didn’t end up as glorious as someone else promised you.

That’s because you’re confused about what trying really means.

Trying isn’t about how many different things you attempt, but rather the amount of times you attempt to do the same thing right.

Nothing works if you don’t work.

Finding success — getting the results you want  — demands sweat and tears and blood. It’s not an accident that happens in an intellectual laboratory somewhere.

It’s hard to keep trying the same thing when the only results from your past efforts have been failure.

You feel like a fool.

Those around you misinterpret your focus as stupidity.

Or belligerence. They tell you you’re doing the wrong thing — and you feel like they are every bit right.

But that doesn’t change the fact that getting the results that you want is all about how committed you are to keep trying.

That starts with belief. Belief in yourself. Belief in your mission.

Belief that success is possible.

The greatest breakthroughs in the world have all come about from the same formula of trial and error and trial and error and trial and error.

If you’re not willing to look wrong while you’re fighting to be successful, don’t ever expect to get it right.

You’re probably going to have to look like a fool and a failure on your way to being awesome.

Keep trying. That never fails to work.
