Try Again – Episode #053

“The only thing achieved in life without effort is failure.”  -Author UnknownIf you have done your best, you have nothing to fear.  Growing up my parents would always say, “We just want you to try.”  My response was typically, “I DID!”  But they knew better.  They knew when I was giving my all and when I was just half assing.  We know ourselves.  We know when we have given our best effort.  And sometimes we give our best and it still does not seem good enough.  You have more in you.  When you have reached the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!  Go another step.  Go the extra mile.  If you’ve fallen down or failed, get right back up and try again!  Remember that success is 99% failure.  That 1% is the key.  That is where you find success, on your 100th try!

Below you’ll find the song lyrics and video link to Aaliyah’s “Try Again.”  In the song she’s talking about a relationship, but this message can be applied to many different things in life.

What would you do
To get to me
What would you say
To have your way
Would you give up
Or try again
If I hesitate
To let you win
Or would you be yourself
Or play your role
Tell all the boys
Or keep it low
If I say no
Would you turn away
Or play me off
Or would you stay

[Chorus]
If at first you don’t succeed
Dust yourself off and try again
You can dust it off and try again

If at first you don’t succeed
You can dust it off and try again
Dust yourself off and try again

I’m into you,
You into me
But I cant let it go
So easily
Not ’til I see
What this could be
Be eternity
Or just a week
You know, our chemistry
Is off the chain
Is perfect now
But will it change
This aint a yes
This aint a no
Just do your thang
We’ll see how it goes…ohhh

If at first you don’t succeed
Dust yourself off and try it again
You can dust it off and try again

If at first you don’t succeed
You can dust it off and try it again
Dust yourself off and try again

[Hook]
If you dont wanna throw it all away
Might be shy on the first date
What about the next date
huh, huh, huh, huh

If you dont wanna throw it all away
You might be buggin’ on the first date
But what about the next date
um, um, um, um
