So true....people are so afraid in failure that they don't even try....failure is a learning experience and you just pick yourself up and dust yourself off.....I failed 3 times before I gave up smoking.....kept trying though and eventually got there in the end....gotta keep trying and not focus on the word fail.. I caught up with someone last week who is going through a divorce and kept commenting on a failed marriage...I said to her it is not a failed marriage at all. You had 10 years together and it ran it's course, nothing to do with failure, move on!

I'm thinking about all those people who need to lose a great deal of weight but only put out a commitment to lose a fraction of it at first.
It is lack of belief that stops them from committing 100%.
It is belief is THE important factor for success.

A great example of what Robert Kennedy is saying can be found in his brother, JFK.
He dared to commit his nation to the task of putting a man on the moon before the end of the decade.
Many of the top scientists at NASA lacked belief that it could be done.
On paper it would have seemed like a pipe dream - the Russians had trounced the Americans on all fronts.
First satellite, first animal in space, first man in space, first space walk, first woman in space and many more things.
Yet he dared - greatly...before the whole world and the dream became a reality when a man named Armstrong walked on the moon.

Or as Dr Phil put it so succinctly...
"YOU DO THE THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO DO"
I know that it is so true for me.
I find time for that I want to do and yet can procrastinate for Queen and country with the best of them on the stuff that I don't want to do. :lol:
