The Difference Between Trying & Doing - Michael Hyatt

  1. 1. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRYING AND DOING How to Turn Attempts Into Accomplishments
  2. 2. “No. Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
  3. 3. WHY TRYING DOESN’T WORK
  4. 4. Tony Robbins gave advice to a woman who complained that she had “tried everything” to improve her relationship with her husband but nothing had changed.
  5. 5. Tony: can you try to pick up the chair? The woman turned around and picked up the chair. Tony: “No, you picked it up. I said try to pick it up.” The woman looked confused. Tony:“Try to pick it up.” The woman just stood there, not knowing what to do. Again, she picked up the chair. Tony: “No, you picked up the chair. I asked you to try and pick it up. You either pick it up, you don’t pick it up, or you try to pick it up.”
  6. 6. JUST STOP ”TRYING“
  7. 7. When we say we are trying we don’t really have to do anything.
  8. 8. You either do something or you don’t do it
  9. 9. Trying = NOT doing it
  10. 10. Eliminate the word “try” from your vocabulary SUGGESTION #1
  11. 11. Decide either to do or not do SUGGESTION #2
  12. 12. “No. Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
  13. 13. Commit 100 percent to the outcome you want SUGGESTION #3
  14. 14. “Failure is not an option. Play full out. Don’t quit. Don’t settle for merely trying.”
