It is hard to gain motivation to do something today when you have no idea how it will turn out in a year, week or even tomorrow. There is no such thing as guaranteed success, no one knows of a secret formula or has the key. It is based of off trials, failures and luck.
“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”. – Wayne Gretzky
In order to succeed, you must be willing to take the risk and try something new. If you don’t try anything new, how will you become better tomorrow?
Failure can increase your determination and make you work harder in order to succeed. It also keeps you humble and level headed. How can you say you tried, when you have never failed?
This can be a very dangerous factor when trying to succeed. There is no skill and does not require hard work. You may get lucky once but how can you replicate that in the future? Will tomorrow really be as luck as today?
Becoming better than yesterday requires your dedication and determination. You must try your hardest, fail frequently but not too often and have a little luck.
