Do you believe a person can over-try or try too hard when it comes to reaching a goal? Can a person work too hard? There are times when reaching a goal will require patience and there are also moments when reaching a goal requires doing nothing. I ask this because I know people who want things so bad that it seems they become their own worst enemy.
I understand desire, but it is possible to want something so bad that it causes you to make poor decisions thus impeding your ability to reach your goal. I have experienced this personally. I think it is important to understand success is a balance of desire, effort and patience.
Being an impatient person I have to remind myself of this principle on a daily basis. What are your thoughts?
