Try, Try Again

For those people who have tried and failed and then given up to never try again, here are some wise and encouraging words for you to consider. In life, failure is a constant; there is and never will be any guarantee that failure is only something that happens to other people. No matter who you are, or wherever you live, failure is as constant as the sky has stars. So, what is the point?

Quite simply, failure will always rise when least expected; it is something to be embraced but not kept. This means that failure, when viewed from a strategic point of view, can provide all the lessons one needs in order to avoid similar pitfalls in the future. Take, for example, one of the most famous inventors. I'm sure you are more aware of this inventor than you know because you use what he invented every day of your life probably without knowing his story. This person is Thomas Edison. He learned through perseverance, through failure after failure after failure hundreds of ways not to invent the light bulb. But, through his dedication, lack of staying stuck in past failures, rose to become the inventor of the modern-day light bulb. This invention helped to transform the world at his time leading on to many more modern conveniences that we have welcomed. If it wasn't for Edison's disregard for failure, who knows where we would be today.

Much can also be said for thousands of scientists who have lived over the past centuries. If you think that some of our modern vaccines, for example, were scientifically developed after only a few attempts you would be wrong. Instead, as like Edison and thousands of other successful people from all walks of life, these scientists prevailed after many, many false starts and disappointing results.

The message is of this poem, by J.J. Thorne, is crystal clear: Never give up - try, try again - a door never opens unless someone opens it - let this someone be you.

Try, Try Again
Poet: J.J. Thorne

The task may seem hard and difficult,
Doubts and fears may encumber the brain;
But resolution is half of the battle.
Try, try again.

Industry promises to old age,
A help as a crutch or cane;
If you stumble and loose foothold,
Try, try again.

Though your life be a terror,
And all constructions you have lain;
Fall a victim to despair,
Try, try again.

Conscience will help to smooth rough ways,
It is to duty a dressing pane;
If you have slubbered and run over life,
Try, try again.

Plod your way through the world.
Seek best methods to ordain;
Toil to prune the rose of perfection.
Try, try again.

Passions and temptations gears and hooks up,
Satan drives and holds the rein;
Ask of conscience the way to get loose,
Try, try again.

Conscience will give a true verdict,
Protest for right and wrong disdain;
And fill our hearts with gratitude.
Try, try again.

The good that others can do,
To live in harmony and leave no stain;
Why through love may not you —
Try. try again.

There is a place of paradise.
No sickness, sorrow, trouble or pain;
God will bless that ask advice.
Try, try again.
