Here are the facts: You either decide to do something until it’s done or you convince yourself with justifications that it’s okay to give up. That’s it! There’s no such thing as try.
A student does not try to get good grades. They make a decision to get them or they convince themselves that it’s better to be cool and party and then give up on the pursuit of getting good grades.
A mother does not try to take care of her children. She makes a decision to do whatever it takes to make sure they have everything they need or she convinces herself that it’s no use or she’s not capable and resorts to other ways to compensate.
Someone that’s out of shape does not try to lose weight, they make a decision to stick to a nutrition and workout plan or they convince themselves that it’s too hard or the coaches fault; then they end up getting fatter and have to spend more money on medicine and surgeries down the road.
A husband does not try to be a great counterpart to his spouse. He makes a decision to do what it takes to honor the union he entered. Or he convinces himself that he’s missing out on so much and goes out and cheats.
