Just Don’t Expect Tomorrow To Be Awesome.

There’s no good excuse for not trying. Sure — you can find a justifiable reason why you don’t want to do what’s hard but necessary.

There are always experts you can find that will tell you that what you’re about to try isn’t something that actually returns good results.

There are case studies that will clearly point out that what you want to try won’t end up working.

There are websites with testimonials and social proof showing that your big ideas just aren’t worth the trouble.

That still doesn’t change the fact that trying matters.

There’s no good excuse for not trying.

You can’t do anything without first trying to do it.

You don’t just brush your teeth. You try to brush your teeth and end up accomplishing the task of brushing her teeth — try, do, done.

Trying is your way of moving from where you are to where you want to be.

It’s the feedback loop that constantly updates you on your journey.

If you’re not trying, you’re not moving.

If you’re not moving, you’re not doing anything.

If you’re not doing anything right now, you shouldn’t expect tomorrow to be awesome.

Because you aren’t trying.
