Try Again

Try again. Try again. There is success in trying again. There is courage in trying again. There is hope in trying again. Try again. Never stop trying again. Because you can’t live your life without falling down.

Whenever you drop to the ground, never stay there, keep going. Keep trying. If you fail at something, don’t call yourself a loser, call yourself a learner.

“Ever tried. Ever Failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.”- Samuel Beckett, Irish novelist

If you at first you don’t succeed at something precious to you- your goals, your dreams, your relationships with yourself and others, your medical exam, your driving test, try again. Try again. You can’t win if you don’t try again.

You can do it if you try again. You can’t go through life without running into trouble. Many. You can’t go through life without falling down. Many. When you fail, when you fall, when you make a mistake, try again. Don’t quit. Because you are not a quitter, you are a winner. You are not a victim, you are a victor. You are not loser, you are a winner. You are not a loser, you are a learner. You are not fat, you are free. You are not negative, you are nice. You are not a lonely person, you are a learning person. You are not a failure, you are success.

You can be it if you believe you can. Don’t tell yourself negative things. Always tell yourself positive things. As William Edward Hickson put it, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” No matter how hard, don’t quit, don’t give up, don’t surrender, don’t go home until you succeed. Why? Because there is victory in trying again. So if you want to be victorious, you must always try again.

If you fail at something, don’t quit, try again. If you fail your job interview, try again. If you fail your presentation, try again. If your business is not making money, if your business is not changing lives, if your business is not adding value to your life, try again.

The point here is: NEVER STOP TRYING AGAIN!

Why Is It Difficult To Practice Forgiveness?

“Never does the human soul appear so strong as when it forgoes revenge, and dare forgive an injury.”- Edwin Hubbell Chapin, preacher

Forgiveness is freedom. When you forgive who hurt you, you are free. The other person is free, too.

Forgiveness is healing. When you forgive who hurt you, you are healing from the pain. You are healing from the past. You are healing into the present.

But one thing is clear: forgiveness is a hard thing to do, but if you can do it, you will be free forever. If you find yourself struggling to forgive someone, you are not alone. We are all in it together.

People find it difficult to forgive because they can’t let go of the feeling of resentment. They can’t forget the past. They think they are letting the person go unpunished.

Forgiveness does not mean that you are letting the person who hurt you go unpunished. It means you are letting yourself off the pain of the past. It means you are freeing yourself from bondage. It means you are now a mature person, meaning you are bigger than the person who hurt you.

Forgiveness is your choice. It is a choice between staying in the past or moving forward. It is a choice between letting go or continue to live in pain. It is a choice between being a victim or a victor. Forgiveness takes time. It is a process. Don’t rush into it. Take your time to forgive and forget.

Forgiveness is letting go of the past. If you let go of the past, if you forget the past, then you can focus on the moment. But if you keep living in the past, if you keep dwelling on what happened yesterday, you will miss what is happening right now. Don’t let resentment steal your happiness away from you. Don’t let resentment steal your destiny away from you. Resentment is toxic. It is worse than cancer. Resentment allows us to continually live in pain. Resentment is dangerous to your health and well-being, so get rid of it.

Reinhold Niebuhr, theologian, said, “Forgiveness is the final form of love.” You cannot love someone unless you have forgiven him or her. Forgiveness is hard, but if you can do it, you are free forever. Enjoy your freedom!
