To me, to keep trying after failing isn’t only to try once or twice after failing to achieve a goal, it’s trying every single time with all my effort. When I fail, I tend to try and not think about it aside from learning from it. The big message I think is missing from this sentence is that you must learn from your attempt before trying again.
Especially for budding freelancers and freshly-graduated college students, being able to keep your head up and not be personally offended after being rejected is very important. Every potential employer hasn’t seen you fail, therefore failing a few times in a row in life should not affect your next job (or job interview) negatively, only positively. Just like learning how to love again after a terrible breakup, one must teach themselves how to get their focus back after failing.
This article and responses are RichardStep visitor submissions and are about as raw and down-to-Earth as we can get, folks. Keep this in mind as there are varying opinions, ages, and stations in life represented. In the end, there are always some good hints, tips, and advice nuggets to grab from it all.
- If you want to do it, just do it. (Don’t hesitate.. don’t worry about how; if you’re on the right track, you’ll find a way.) It only gets harder as time goes on, and there will be more forks in the roads further up. If you decide not to, don’t look back. Make a decision and move from there. Some of the best things in life are those that were never thought about, planned for, or expected.
- Do not spend time worrying. It robs you of your creativity. Know that you have a Creator who specifically has a plan and purpose for you. Seek that purpose and live it out daily with each person and circumstance interaction you encounter everyday.
- At any point of time in your life you feel you are frustrated and unsatisfied. Stop and look for the reason. you will be able to find the answer to your problem as solution always is available with you but you are not able to see it. sometimes you may have to take strong decisions but it is always better to be clear than to be confused and troubled.
- I wish that I had the time to do more, and I wished that I tried the things that I have never tried before. Live your life like you knows it is going to tomorrow. Take every chance, prepare when you have the time to, live to love and spend every moment with no regrets. Don’t be like me, when you’re about to die, then only you realize that you have nothing to hold on to, and no legacy to live your generation to.
- My advice would be to take your time and discover what your passions are. I think our society is very fast paced and we want results right away. Don’t make rash decisions, take time to explore what excites and motivates you and pursue the things that energize and fill you with passion.
- I would say live is too short to give up. There is always room for change and who you are today can greatly change over time.
- Make time in your life to do things that you find fulfilling. Try to find meaning even in your work, and if you can’t, try to find work that does have meaning to you.
- If I were on my deathbed, I would tell any young adult that trying to be perfect all the time is just a wage of death. Sometimes the imperfections in life are the most beautiful. Sometimes you can find the light in the darkness.
- To love themselves and try to keep a positive belief through all difficult times in life
- Don’t waste your time trying to keep up with everyone
- If i was on my death bed, and had one last chance to make an impact pin the world by giving advice to someone, I’d tell them not to rush life and try new things because they’re are amazing and fun things to do out in the world before it’s your time to go, and try not to worry and feel insecure about things because it will only make life worse.
- Life is a test and lasts a short time. Make wise decisions and don’t waste time on trivial useless things.
- I would tell that young person to live life to the fullest. Never give up on their dreams and live life with passion. Spend time with the ones you hold dear, and continually learn. Strive to be the best you can and always give the most of yourself. Live with honor.
- I would tell them to keep trying. To never give up and that in the dark times things will get better.
- Life is not complicated. Life is lived by making one decision at a time. So, do the right thing each and every time you make a decision and it will all work out in the end.
- Don’t give up – work towards what you want. Sometimes it’s not always easy but worth it in the end.
- Do things that you love, don’t wait for “this” or “that” moment to happen before you can do it. time goes by so fast, you’ll regret every day that you waste.
- Don’t over-think things. I’ve wasted so much time trying to predict outcomes & plant things out–just imagine the end result (once) and GO FOR IT. Get moving!
- Life is not a place where you can make ready made decisions all the time, so think and decide upon anything.
- Get on what with whatever you’re doing and give it a very good try. What I mean is don’t waste your time and give everything you do your best shot.
- The best advice I could give someone is to always stay true to yourself. Don’t get pulled into the decisions of others. Be confident in your choices and keep ahold of your morals. Life is too valuable to live it as someone you’re not. People see strength in those individuals who stay true to themselves through hard times. Everyone else is already taken, so just be yourself and never doubts yourself.
- Never give up; you can do anything you set your mind to. I would give this advice because I’ve learned that once you set your mind to something, and follow through with it, you can accomplish anything. You will be surprised at what you’re capable of. If you don’t succeed the first time, try again.
- Be very particular with your priorities…at times v lack d ability the ability to decide about the correct thing to be done at that time…so beware and be conscious while taking a decision…
- Live your life to the fullest and have no regrets about the decisions you made because you decided they were the best at the time.
- Don’t grow up too fast. Take your time. Know that your past can come back to bite you. Be true to yourself and don’t give up who you are for someone else.
- I would tell them to spend their time loving people. Not to hold grudges and to try to remain more positive than negative.
- Love the skin you’re in an don’t waste time worrying about what others think. True strength comes from within and accepting yourself is the only way to ever move forward.
- Take your time and not get pushed to follow your dreams but not give up on yourself and be open to new ideas
- Try to balance your study time and also curriculum time and try the best to achieve your goal.
- One piece of advice that I would give a young adult that I feel would most change their life is to not try and do everything on their own. It’s important to find a mentor or an individual whom they can look up and ask questions, depend on, etc. They can go to this person in their time of need or if they need advice. While it’s important to be independent and self-sufficient, you can’t do everything on your own.
- There’s not enough time in life to worry about what other people think of you.
- Try not to be drawn astray by things that are inherently useless. There is only so much time for one person – it may seem like a lot but it is finite; you don’t want to have any regrets. Make sure your decisions are your own and to the benefit of you and your environment.
- As you go through life, be confident of your decisions. Once you make them, live them and don’t look back. Spending time on what already happened is wasted time that can be spent on what you can do now to make a better tomorrow.
- Do not do thing that will make you feel regret. Time is precious and once you choose the wrong path, you might not have enough time to turn and redo the whole thing again.
