The feeling we might experience from knowing we at least attempted a seemingly tough task may be enough to explain why giving it a go can bring positive results.
Many endeavours we are obliged to undertake do not offer guaranteed outcomes. The possibility of failing makes success sweeter we could say in such instances. And this is perhaps why giving it a go can bring positive results in terms of putting ourselves into the arena of life.
Winning is rarely an option if we are not prepared to at least ‘give it a go’. To underline why giving it a go can bring positive results, let me quote a saying attributed to the former professional ice hockey player Wayne Gretzky: “You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take.”
To avoid labouring the point I will stop now. In any case, if you’d like to share your input on the issue of why giving it a go can bring positive results, please feel free to leave a comment below.
