I read a post this week that I felt we all needed to focus on! It was on Google + by Tracy Myers, sharing this “profound statement” his 12 year old son had said that morning: “I’m not going to try and be successful. I’m just going to be successful.” Tracy added, “Positive affirmation works! Believe that!”
This statement triggered my mind into wondering: how many times do we make out our daily “to do” list and really intend to do it, or is it just a “try” list, and not a positive affirmation that we will do and not just try to do?
Do we realize the real difference between “try” and “do?” I found that in many other languages the word “try” is not used as we do! How many times do you find yourself saying “I’ll try” or “I’m trying” daily versus the mindset of saying Yes I am or No I’m not?
As for me I don’t want my doctor to “try” and solve my issues, I want him to do it, don’t you? How about the pilot on your next plane trip? I don’t want them to “try” to get me to my destination, I want to arrive safely and on time.
I’m sure my clients don’t want me to “try” and provide a speaker or presenter for their next event, they are expecting me to just “do it” and yes, bring the “WOW” factor as well!
In my business and life, I’m in agreement with Tracy’s son: I’ve eliminated the “try” stage in my mind, and in my language. Either I am being and doing, or I’m not! Do I fail? Sure, but then I learn and continue on being and doing!
Take a look at your day. Are you in the business of doing, or are you just “trying ?”
