If you strive to be a Rocket Scientist and fail, you can still be a scientist. If you strive to be a surgeon and fall short, you can still be a doctor. If you want to be a Judge and fail it’s alright, because you can still practice law as an attorney.
Dare I say it?
Even if you’re wanting to earn a PhD in Psychology or whatever it is you may choose and it seems impossible or like you’ll never realize it, don’t fret. Because you can still be a Psychologist, Counselor, Therapist or even Professor. Don’t give up because you fail, just try again and fail better the next time. Eventually you’ll reach your goal.
Keep trying. Set your dreams high, because if you miss your anticipated or desired target goal you’re still better off than you were if you gave up or didn’t try at all.
