Another approach

When one approach is not working to reach the desired goal, that’s not a reason to abandon the goal. Instead, it is time to devise another approach. Sometimes the objective and the means to that objective become so intertwined that it is difficult to imagine one without the other. Yet there are many different ways to reach any particular goal, given enough persistence and creativity.

That’s why, for those who are able to consistently get things done, there is no such thing as failure. There are only approaches which have been proven ineffective.

There is a way to achieve whatever you desire, even when you’ve already fallen short of the mark. There is a way to do it. That way may not be obvious. It may well require some skillful, creative thinking. It’s there, though. Learn from each attempt, learn from each approach and you’ll surely discover one that works spectacularly.
