You can’t Win, If you don’t even Try! – Robin Sharma

You can’t Win, If you don’t even Try! – Robin Sharma

If your life is not rewarding and you want to make a change but are struggling to get started, this quote by Robin Sharma inspires us with a reminder that:"You Can’t Win If You Don’t Try!"
So put your blockers aside, get up and take that first step.

Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness; Having a positive mindset of no matter what has happened, what can I do now. We can either be taken down by the events or rise above them. Be RESILIENT!

Listen to our Podcast & Guided Meditation on being Positive and Success:

If your past attempts or failures are blocking you then besides when things didn’t work out also think of what did work out. What you did learn and how the experience helped you grow, helped you be what you are today.

We start, we fall, we accept, we learn, and get up again. This leads us to reach the success that we once dreamed of. If we neglect the accepting and learning part, we walk like a lame person towards the end of life. The subtle incalculable and unforeseeable touch in your decisions and actions will lead you to the greatest life lessons that you would have never thought of. And once you reach the destination then you get to know that the essence of success lies through the hardships of the path.

You don’t have to fear failure, fear not trying. Courage does not mean the absence of fear; it is the art of knowing what not to fear. And in life, just remain courageous with your efforts and stay on your path despite the hindrances along the way.  Remember when you quit trying, you disappoint the whole world of hopes tied with your goal to achieve success.

You will always be better than those who never tried. Failure might get painful at some time but always remember, pain is temporary and sufferings are optional. Either you can cry with pain or you can utilize that pain to alleviate your standards. Resisting on taking your first step is itself a self-sabotaging behavior that can destroy you easily. Trying something new gives you the probability of failure but failure gives you the surety of getting one step closer to success. Nothing can be more absurd than not trying and then complaining about not winning. To achieve your goals, you just have to believe in yourself and if you do, then you deserve to accomplish your goals. So never be afraid to try something new because life might get boring if you stay within the boundaries of your already existing knowledge. Strive for more!

Robin Sharma said it right – “You can’t win if you don’t try”!
