Chapter 2, Page 26, Book 16

Say 'yes’ to life! ‘Yes' to wonder, to joy, to despair.
‘Yes' to pain, ‘yes' to what you don't understand. 
Try ‘yes.' Try ‘always.'Try ‘possible.’ Try ‘hopeful.
Try 'I will.' And try 'I can.

Leo Buscaglia

February 26th - try with a little extra Umph!

Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.    

Author Unknown

The difference between try and triumph is the Umph.

A large part of life has to do with overcoming obstacles. Some obstacles require simply trying, while others demand more UMPH!   The more you try, the more you will triumph!  To succeed at most anything requires trying harder and doing more than you think you can

God doesn't require us to succeed; he only requires that you try.     

 Mother Teresa

Triumph is just umph added to try.  Triumphs without difficulties are empty. Indeed; it is difficulties that make the triumph. It is no feat to travel the smooth road. 

How do you turn attempts and trys into success and triumph? Add some UMPH to your life. Stop being so quick to throw in the towel, instead get off the ground, dust yourself off, and add some extra UMPH this time.

Don't just settle on trying, be triumphant. 

There are those who travel and those who are going somewhere. They are different and yet they are the same. The success has this over his rivals: He knows where he is going.

Hadn't looked at the word "triumph" like that before. It is a good lesson for all of us and one to teach children early to keep on going, do the umph and keep trying and you will accomplish most if not all you set out to do!

I am till smiling at UMPTH! GOOD ONE! I read once "Not all who wander are Lost!" That makes a lot of difference.
Thanks for the enlightenment and smile.

The decision to try is key. There's genius in beginning.
