Brief Thoughts On Our Desire To Succeed
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
When someone says they want to do something, he or she is likely intending to imply that they might like to do something, that is, as long as it’s easy, and convenient—that it doesn’t require effort or time. When we want to do something, we might rarely say it aloud in fear of others potentially attempting to stop us, ridicule us or simply criticize. Consider why you might project that other people might want to, or literally make such an effort in stopping you. What effect might be having upon your own need to succeed? It’s when we achieve things, large or small, it often and ironically appears to result as a reminder to others that they have not done as you have done. After all, setting and achieving goals for results would require effort on their ends as well.
