If you don't try, you'll never know.
If you don't go after what you want,
you'll never get it
...and if you never ask,
the answer will always be no.
It's that simple.
You really do get what and how much you put in. If you want something and yet never try, never practice, never actually go after it, and complain that it's outside your reach...realize that you've never taken a step in the right direction. If you put all of your eggs in one basket and things fall through? Well then you might be left with nothing. So what? You took a risk, you did something you wanted, something you believed in. You actually did something for YOU. You gained so much more than never actually pursuing a dream, a goal, a desire. You went after what you wanted.
It's the simplicity of things. We want, want, want...think we need and beat ourselves up because we cant have it, cant do it, can't be it. But have you ever actually put yourself out there and tried? How many times have you failed? Sometimes, it's getting knocked down 5 times and about standing up 6. When things get rough, we learn, we grow...to be push down and stand right back up, show how badly we want something.
Have you actually gone out of your comfort zone and tried something different? Done something you want, for you and not for anyone else. Without fear of others, judgements, failing? How much you put in, is how much you will get out. Sometimes things are tough...challenging, frustrating, difficult. Somethings you have to work hard for. So what? You do it. You work hard, you go after what you want. You do something about what YOU want. And that will make all the difference.
Things aren't just going to happen to you. People aren't just going to happen to you. We have to go out and make things happen. If you're sick of your job, friends, a sticky situation...get out and run. Stop settling for less than you deserve and thinking this is all it will ever be. Because there is more, so much more and you deserve more. You know YOU want more. So get off your butt and go get it! Realize what you want and grasp it, with both hands.
And when you get it, don't let it go.
** Sometimes..it's all about the experiences. They might be challenging, hard, difficult, saddening, heartbreaking, strengthening, rich, and powerful. Experiences are everything. Sometimes we fail, sometimes we succeed. If we never try, we never know. And if we never move forward, we will always be stuck in the same spot. Do you want more? Do you deserve more? We all do. It's realizing this that is great. The power that comes from going after what you want, gaining new experiences...and sometimes, sometimes failing. It's the experiences that are worth remembering. They will change us, shape us...make us. Experiences are rich and worth every penny you put in.
