Do not judge me by my actions.
Do not judge me by your thoughts.
Do not judge me by what you can't see.

Do.

LMAO Yoda says it best.Although seemingly borrowed from various philosophies.

Many people forgot that trying is a half-hearted attempt and we should always give our full heart to everything we do.

...we should always give our full heart to everything we do.
As in trying our best, or giving "100%" in an attempt?

I think that when something is tried or attempted, it leaves room for hesitation and doubt, which then leaves room for the possibility of failure. But failure is always a possibility, thus we can only attempt to succeed, we can only try. Believing otherwise might set you up for some serious disappointment.

what if, when something is tried or attempted
you focus on trying or attemting insted of doing something..

an eksample. if youy try to ride your bike. you try to ride the bike, instead of just riding the bike. try seem to me as somthing made to be used in the past, you do or do not, if you make it, you made it, if you did not make it, you tried!
i just do not see how to try isen't somthing you did vs. somthing you do..
nice replys, thank you all :wink:

trying is fine
giving up is a bother.
relaxing is not giving up.
but the similarity could get your really mixed up.

I'm saying that you should put your whole being into what you do.

If you believe you will fail you are more likely to.If you strongly believe you will fail, you most likely will.The less room you leave for doubt, the higher the chance you have at succeeding.

Trying implies desiring to implement your imagined outcome onto the consesnus outcome of this reality. Fail or succeed, that which is simply is. The causes are infinite, as are the results, it only depends where we place our conscious observation.

or trying means it is too early to talk about it, you are in process. some testing is happenning and concentration is still required.

maybe beginning[/] is a more "sane" word for this context.

the word "trying" might be pollutted with to many associations that are confused.
