Weekly Wonder Online: 14


W. C. Fields wonders...

"If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no use being a damn fool about it."

Listen to my thoughts about W C Fields' (Charles F Kettering's, Mary Anne's and The Rolling Stone's), inspirational quote in the video below. You'll also discover a bit more about my favourite place in London - Tate Modern!

What I Wonder...




(NOTE: Yes, I wrote any captions you see in this video. It's called self-deprecation, and it's mostly a healthy thing (I think!).)


As I say in the video - twice! - I love the Tate Modern building located near South Bank, London. And even though it's clearly not located in West Yorkshire (where I shoot all my Weekly Wonder videos, usually!) I just had to record a video there.

And as I'd already unsuccessfully filmed a bit of nonsense masquerading as a Weekly Wonder video there a month or so ago I thought some inspirational quotes about trying again most apt.

And my favourite of those quotations about trying (or not quitting) happened to be by W C Fields. It's easy to urge ourselves on and on and on to keep trying, trying and trying. But sometimes, you know what, it's time to call it a day and try something else!

And at the end of a long day's journey to London from Brockholes, West Yorkshire where I live, W C Fields amusing words just seemed to fit right for me...


You really should know what you're really trying to achieve with your actions.

Maybe you've lost focus.

Do you really, really have to have that job? Or would a job that gave you similar responsibilities or freedoms be just as valuable?

Same goes for relationships, homes, holidays... whatever it is that you keep trying to get right, but seem to fail at.

Do you really need to try, try again?

Or might success be recognising that your path lies in a different direction.

Of course, I'm not suggesting - via endorsing W C Field's funny inspirational quote - that quitting is always the right answer.

If it was, then fear of commitment, fear of rejection, fear of failure - all of these most common fears - would win out again and again.

I'm just saying that, maybe just maybe you need to give some attention to this, apply some good ol' fashioned "inner wisdom" or intuition .

And believe me! When I talk about you, I really, really mean ME here, too.

As ever, I'd love to hear your wisdom regarding any and all of these inspirational quotes to do with trying again (not quitting) - thanks! :-)

Thanks for reading,
Steve

Enjoyed This!
by: Steve

Oh how I enjoyed going down to London town twice to record these videos.

I kinda new that the first video wasn't very good, but I had no idea that the sound was so bad.

And I forgot to add my little end piece to the whole thing - such was my haste in getting the whole thing edited and uploaded to YouTube.

Hey ho! imperfect offerings and all that...

Hope these inspirational quotes inspire you to take some kind of different action SOON...

In short, well done 'mate' - I knew you could do it (eventually!)

Steve
