TRY : The mystery of try.
The word “Try” can be best defined as “try” because there is no better definition for it, though it is defined as “an attempt to do something”. It takes courage to try even when failure seems imminent. That is why failure is impossible for those that tried and kept trying. This is because one can only fail when one quits or stops trying.
The mystery surrounding the word “Try” is that man can accomplish many things, even the seemingly impossible, by trying. Most discoveries and invention were made because some people decided to try and they kept trying even when they failed. An example is the known story of Thomas Edison when he invented the light bulb. Most people that made it to the top did so because they refused to quit but continued to try even when everyone thought it was a mission impossible.
Many mystic schools have come to know that one can only unveil some hidden knowledge and truth by trying. That why some of them use the word in various ways because it takes courage to take up a mysterious quest. It is because they know the mystery in the word “try” that they claim to be so powerful yet we know that anyone that has same courage shall achieve same fate.
For one to try does not necessarily, mean one is not afraid but it means that one decided to rise above one’s fears. Therefore the only thing that is regrettable is the failure to try and to keep trying. You cannot fail when you are still in the work so keep trying because failure is impossible for anyone that tries and keeps trying.
That is the mystery of try.
That is why some people call it the magic word, a three letter word, “Try” and any other definition will make the word longer that is why it is better defined as “Try”.
So never be afraid to try and you may never know the outcome or how close you are unless you try. That is the general rule of life because try is like doing the work and one cannot succeed unless one does the work. That why, those that know the secret of "try" are never afraid to try.
