Once you decide that something won't work you will give up trying. If you have tried everything you can then you will know for sure it can't work. If you simply tried it one way and gave up then you can not say for sure that it won't work you can only say that you don't know that if you tried it a different way it might work. I am sure you fell the first time you tried to ride a bike but you knew that if you kept trying you would figure it out. If at first you don't succeed try and try again.

When you take the time to think about what your actions will bring you will clearly see that your first reaction to a situation that angered you would only cause the situation to get worse. Now don't get me wrong acting on a situation that is done out of passion or compassion for something or someone needs to happen because those spontaneous first reactions make athe biggest impact on what positive outcome that your actions will bring. The old saying "You got to know when to hold them, know when to fold them and when to walk away" in this case it is best said "Know when to stop and think about it and when to go with the flow."

There are many "big problems" that we face that they can seem impossible to have a positive outcome. People want to help but they feel the problem is so big that their small help won't affect it. That is simply not true. Every small act in the right direction gets us closer to a solution As each small act makes the "big problem" smaller and eventually it gets small enough that it is easy to solve. Your small act will have a big positive impact on the person you help.

If you want to inspire someone don't start off telling them all their faults. If they feel personally attacked your "words of wisdom" that follows they will not hear because they have quit listening. Start with your "words of wisdom" that get their attention and they will open their minds as well as their ears and possibly be inspired by you. If you want to make a positive difference then keep the conversation positive. There will only be a negative impact if they only hear your negative comments. While their ears are open they will hear you. Don't let the only thing they hear be a list of their faults.

Don't abandon your common sense and bet that some too good to be true idea will be worth giving up the little but stable plan you have now. You know deep down that if it is too good to be true then it usually isn't true. Dreams can't be had by falling in your lap they will take hard work and determination to not abandon your plan as you work through all the trials and errors it will take to reach your dream. Don't risk what you have to chase what doesn't exist because what you had won't be there when you give up the chase.

When you find yourself lost after all that you tried has failed you will just have to regroup your thoughts from all the hard painful lessons you have learned and find a different way to get a sucessful result. If you simply give up then it will not be because you failed at what you tried but because you failed to get up and try again. Many great ideas that we see as necessities today had many failed attempts along the way but it is available today because they failed to give up until they were sucessful.

Anything worth having in life takes hard work. What if you just gave up everytime something was hard to do? You not only need to make a plan on how to get the job done but you must plan on doing the hard work that it will take to get it done. It may not seem like you are getting too far at times when it seems that you take one step forward and fall two steps back but could you imagine how far back you would be if you didn't take a step at all? There will come a time when the hard work is done that you will look back and say had you not fallen you wouldn't have taken that Path that led you where you are.

If it is up to you then what are you going to do about it? There are just some things in life that are not going to get done unless you do it and if it is important to you then you are just going to have to figure it out or it won't get done. The sooner you accept that it is up to you then you won't be waiting for someone else to do it and the sooner it will get done. It may be a dirty job but somebody has got to do it.

If you focus on where you are and where you are going in life then you will bend with the curves and go around the boulders in life and you won't get knocked down.
