You can still give that thing you really love one more real pull or push. The reason you've not gotten it yet is you haven't gone right enough for it. The reason you're not there now is you haven't travelled the distance. The biggest winners never quit but rather they keep trying again smarter.
You can be wherever or whatever you want to be if you work hard at it. If you put enough effort you can move anything. It is more about doing the right things to get the best reactions getting those things done.
It doesn't really matter how many times you've tried but the most important thing is how well you finish. Just see your trying time as a learning process towards achieving and keeping your life goals. Why not try that thing again with only one mindset drive to settle for nothing lesser than success. Let's have a winning week ahead.
