Ill give it a shot.
Ill give it a whirl.
Ill give it a try.
Have you ever heard someone make any of these statements before? Of course you have. People say they will give this or that or the other a try all of the time. As a matter of fact, chances are good that you have even uttered one or more of these overworked phrases yourself on occasion.
While giving something a try is a lot better than not trying at all, each of these statements are lacking something thats very important. So whats missing?
That missing something is POWER.
There is a BIG difference between trying to do something and getting it done. That difference is commitment.
Anyone, and I do mean anyone, can try something. After all, trying is in reality an optional route. Trying leaves the back door wide open, so in the event that whatever youre trying doesnt pan out, you can quickly retreat back to where you were before you tried.
Thats why so many people fail in their attempts to try to lose weight, try to stop smoking, try to make better grades in school or the hundreds of other things they try off and on in their lives. Rather than totally commit themselves to making the changes they want to make in life, they keep trying
Nothing really ventured, nothing really gained.
Since they didnt really put themselves totally on the hook to make the change, then it doesnt really hurt as badly when they invariably come up short in the futile attempt. Or does it?
After all, if something is worth trying, then isnt it worth doing? And if its worth doing, then isnt it worth doing it right now? So instead of just trying to do something, why not commit to doing whatever it takes -- and then JUST GO DO IT!
There is no power in trying something. Come on, can a half hearted effort ever produce the kind of results you want and deserve? I think you know the answer.
On the other hand, a ton of POWER can be unleashed the very moment you commit to DOING something. When you begin backing up your decisions with a indefatigable REFUSE TO LOSE attitude, your success is insured.
So how about it? Are you ready to replace Ill give it a shot with Ill make it happen?
Rather than saying Ill give it a whirl, doesnt Ill keep working until I get the job done sound a heck of a lot better instead?
And instead of offering up the feeble Ill give it a try, wouldnt you prefer to powerfully declare what you will do and then proceed to go out and do it?
When youre finally prepared to commit, heart and soul, to making your life everything youve ever dreamed it could be, it will become everything youve hoped for
The Bottom Line: The moment you stop trying and start doing, youll stop doing without.
