This is my main philosophy on life.
I have met so many people who use words and phrases like “I can’t” or “I guess I will try”.
Psychologically speaking, if you TELL yourself you are only going to try something, you are setting yourself up for a success/failure scenario.
Tell yourself “I am going to DO this”, and mentally you have given yourself a command. Its not about success or failure, it’s about taking action.
I am often dissappointed after talking with a potential client when they tell me after an hour long conversation, “We are not sure if we are even going to try”.
Life is short, and as we have learned from Steve Jobs, it is the awareness of inevitable death that makes us get up and DO things.
