“But Anita, I’m trying!” I hear this a lot and sometimes it comes from me.
Trying is often a easy out when things didn’t go as planned or if a person wants to opt out and save face.
The challenge is the “trying” default can lead to missed opportunities, reduced confidence, and regrets.
So the next time you hear the “trying” or some variation of it come from you, pause and ask yourself if you want out or if that moment is the perfect opportunity to take action (even a small one).
Have a wonderful day,
