Yes, it is true; you will miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. That’s thephrase often spoken that expresses the value of ‘trying’.
Trying is important and most certainly has value. Trying is a Good thing.
But let me ask you this: Is trying truly enough? Are we really giving our best when we settle for trying?
Trying is a word, an attitude, and mindset that can have a limiting effect.
When we use it as a soft commitment, a possibility, or a maybe, it becomes a crutch and an excuse to avoid accountability.
Trying is dangerously vague and uncommitted, leaving the door open to escape responsibility and not see things through.
On the other hand, simply replacing ‘Try” with ‘Do’ brings commitment to the forefront. Your action is no longer a ‘possibility’ it’s a promise.
A promise to create a plan, put in the work, complete the training. Continue to show up, prepare, practice, and achieve.
My point is, with best intentions, a lot of people will ‘try’ to do something.
“I’ll try to start exercising,” “I’ll try to be more positive,” “I’ll try to stop being on social media more than I know I should,” “I will try to be more present when I’m with my family,” or “I will try to prioritize my day with the most important items so I can be most productive.”
But here's the hard truth: Trying without a firm commitment often leads to a sense of stagnation and a feeling of not winning.
And a lot of people feel like they aren’t winning.
Perhaps, and don’t anyone get upset with me (I am your friend and I have lots of chocolates) –
You’ve been trying for too long.
Consider this: TRYING is an attempt to change with minimal commitment.
On the other hand, DOING IS A COMMITMENT TO ACHIEVES A SPECIFIC RESULT.
The answer could very well be found in this one small shift; this one word change…
By making the shift from trying to doing, we demonstrate our dedication to achievement.
Remember the wise words of the legendary teacher, Yoda, who said, "Do or do not. There is no try." These simple yet profound words highlight the importance of commitment and giving our endeavors our absolute best.
Trying can be a comfortable place, a safety net that shields us from the fear of failure. But true growth and achievement lie in our commitment to doing.
It's time to shed the vague promises of trying and embrace the power of action and commitment.
DO Your Best,
