Your Excuses DON'T's why

Recently, I watched a recording of a workshop done by Shanel Cooper-Sykes. During the workshop, she was demonstrating to an attendee the impossibility of trying. For her demonstration, she had the young lady "try" to pick up a pen.

Each time the woman would "try" to pick it up, she'd successfully pick up the pen. Frustrated, Shanel would again say, "Try to pick up the pen." And, as before, she'd pick up the pen. Shanel would shake her head and say, "Try to pick up the pen."

Now, confused, the woman would pick up the pen once again. After a few iterations of this exercise Shanel finally confesses to the woman that there is no such thing as trying. You either do it or you don't.

What a powerful statement to make.

The truth of the matter is that we either do or we don't. There is no try and, quite frankly, excuses don't matter in the world of success. Tune in below as I explain why.
