Why You Need to Try Harder
There’s a reason why you need to try harder. As complex individuals, our minds are continually swirling with ideas about the future, change, and success in life. Our potential is vast, yet we end up getting stuck doing the same repetitive actions day in and day out without realizing that the years are passing us by and our flame is slowly fading. The golden years waste away into reflections of what might have been.
If you don’t build your own dream, someone else will hire you to build theirs.
This is a great quote by Tony Gaskins that fits with the topic of going full out. If you want to accomplish your dreams or goals, you have to navigate toward them at all times. Minimize distractions. More time spent on the task at hand leads to progress. The last thing you want is to find out you’re too late because you’ve put it off. If you don’t accomplish your dreams, you’ll just be a part of someone else’s.
Why is going harder beneficial and important
You don’t have as much to lose as you think
Rational people always weigh the risks and benefits. Unfortunately, how often have the benefits exceeded the risks, yet nothing was accomplished? To have a chance at attaining your goals and dreams, you have to put in the effort and start. Then you go full out the whole ride there. What’s the worst-case scenario? You just go back to where you started and try again.
Anything less than 100% is unacceptable
If you don’t go full out, then expect mediocre results or none at all. You should be the definition of greatness. Don’t half-commit to yourself. If you don’t go full out, how can you expect others to give you 100%? Push yourself, and take the success you want. Take an example from SpaceX: individuals imagine the moon, but they’re aiming for Mars.
Set your goals high
How can you expect to exit your comfort zone if you continually set goals you know you can achieve? Setting goals that are 100 percent accomplishable are not goals – they are called tasks. Make the end goal hard and set the bar extremely high so that when you do win, it’s worthwhile. When you lose, guess what? You might not have reached your objective, but I assure you-you’ll be in a much better position than when you started.
This is a great way to build confidence because it’s a win-win situation. You either reach your potential when you succeed, or you learn that you have it in you to try – and I mean, really try. Just that alone will make you consistently progress.
Now is a good time to get your priorities together. You need to try harder. It can be a physical, mental, or financial goal, but let’s be serious for a moment; you haven’t hit all your milestones. Get motivated. Let this post be the start of your end game.
