Two beneficial tools to have in your toolbox - being intentional and being proactive. Waiting around for success to happen will only result in a lot of waiting (and often times a lot of worry). Furthermore, when we only react to life as it happens to us, we will either keep treading water or it causes us to sink. If we truly want to move forward, make progress, improve and reach our full potential in life, we must be intentional and be proactive. Do something. Anything. Even if you fail at it. At least you are trying to improve and you are learning something from the failure, while also eliminating bad options. If you feel that you aren't capable or you aren't able to move forward right now in a certain area of your life, then instead of "trying harder", you should "try different". Like the paralytic at the well (John 5:1-15), don't expect someone to throw you into the water for you to be healed ... if you want to be healed, pick up your mat and walk.
