Let’s talk about doing and not just trying for once

0 Permalink

Welcome back! First things first: don’t try! Now, I always speak about believing in yourself and trying. In the end, if you don’t try, you won’t know your potential. So if I say don’t even try, it seems quite paradox, doesn’t it. Quite frankly, it does. Now, let me get deeper into the topic.

Of course, I am a big believer of chasing your dreams. Go for it! Don’t let time pass by and suddenly you wake up regretting that you did not “try” it. That is to say, speaking of trying in the past sounds so much better, doesn’t it? Still don’t get it? Let me try to explain.

I am a big believer in following your dreams and doing what you love most. My saying is and always will be: go for it! And these three simple words are all they are. There is no “try” in it. My personal opinion is that one should approach a new idea, an adventure, a task or whatever it is with the opinion and set of mind that one will achieve, will manage and will go for it. People that say they will try often don’t actually give their full potential. Understand what I am getting at?

I have heard it over and over again. I tried. I really did try. Ok, so basically your goal was to get rid of some extra pounds (classic, no?). Usually (trying to generalize), people that say I will lose 5 pounds will actually manage – no matter in what time frame. Those that say they will give it a try, usually are not putting in 100%. Think about it. Think about how you approach certain goals and how the mental strength changes from being unsure and potentially scared, to receiving adrenaline and believing in yourself a little more once you say (try sounding convinced!) YES I can do it and I will manage it.

To summarize: trying – when speaking about really having gone for something and (for whatever reason) failed – is of course normal and can happen. Yet, one should not use the phrase “I tried” as an excuse for not having achieved what was initially pursued. I understand this is often easier said than done, but I also believe that it’s a booster for once belief and mental strength. Now: dream, believe, schedule, work on it and win it! xo

Malta x Moving

Good morning! I am awake since 4.45am this morning and we are waiting for the truck. Of course, one disaster follows another. The truck wasn’t allowed out of the harbor because they made a mistake at the border control office. Fast forward 2 hours, I am now sitting here in a still empty apartment, but – with good news. I just got a call from my dad (whom went to the harbor at 5), that they are now allowed to continue. The truck should be arriving in 20-30 minutes from now and then we will start unloading. Unpacking is the theme for the next couple of days.

I thought I’d use this little mini-break though to update you and, provide you with some iPhone photos I was able to make last night. Since arriving here, we have been running errands constantly and in between I have been working on my laptop (business and studies – so much for vacation..). Now I am crossing fingers that everything goes well and that I can then enjoy the weather a little bit on the weekend. I brought so many nice, new bathing suits! It would be a shame to not use them. And of course, I want to use these few days to tan a little if possible.

The photos are from lasts nights dinner (horrific quality, I know), when we went to Surfside (a Restaurant here in Malta, right at the water). It has an absolutely breathtaking view and the food was amazing. At least, I can surely say that about my fresh salmon – and I can only recommend the place to anyone visiting Malta. The Restaurant has 3 floors to it, with a Shisha bar at the beach, a more lounge/bar area for enjoying just drinks and some great music (and from time to time supposedly big parties).

Now I need to jump – the truck is about to arrive! xo
