Trying Is Lying
By Arthur Buchanan
What exactly do we mean trying is lying? It's been my experience that when a person says I will try that's when they start to look for ways out of dong it. I mean right in the name TRYING just spells failure. I mean how many people that you know when saying that they are going to try and quit smoking make it?
Can they truly and honestly try to give it their best? I did not think thought so. Then I looked back at all the times in my life when I said that I would try and really know that I wasn't going to make it. If I knew I was "TRYING and that was ok by me because after all I was "TRYING". It left a bad taste in my mouth. I knew that I wasn't trying to hard; just enough to let myself know that I was trying ever so litely and that I would eventually fail from the master plan, so yes trying is lying.
Now if you say you are going to do something and you really mean it the chances are you will pin your ears back and do all you can to get the job done. What if you fail even though you said that you would do it and then you don't? It could mean that you just weren't supposed to do that particulare thing after all at this present time. You really were trying then in this situtation you are not lying.
You knew you wanted to get it done you weren't lying, you really and truly knew you were going to get it done, but it just for some reason would just did not get done. Now were you lying to yourself? Probally not some things just won't get done no matter how much you will try and make it to happen. It's ok not to do everything that we set out to.
Something's just aren't meant for you to do. I will state for the record if you try to do something there is a 95% chance that you will fail because you really aren't taking things very seriously and trying is lying when you get right down to it.
If you are not trying then you are just going to stay the way you are but if you just try a bit then you also fail. When you set out to do something put your whole heart into it, don't just try, just do it and put one-step in front of the other and soon you'll be walking out the door. So don't try, just do it and you won't be lying to yourself or others.
