In business and in personal affairs, you see motivation messages and motivational speakers re-engage folks to aspire to better or bigger or whatever. From the tales of Horatio Hornblower in the nineteenth century, with his chest up – chin out – pull yourself up by your bootstraps advice; to Sig Siggler, Napoleon Hill in the twentieth century – you are better than you think, stronger than you know, and more valuable than you suspect. To the over abundance of posts on Facebook and LinkedIn in the millennia – combining both centuries.

I’ve wondered – with these kinds of messages over the last 150 years, why is the world not a stronger, better, utopia place to live?

Because the message and the challenges do not match everyone to everything to anything. It soothes but does not relieve the pain. It distracts from the overwhelmed facts.

Maybe we as a planet need a different message –

try, fail, try, succeed, do - fail or succeed.

May put a few motivational speakers out of work, but may achieve a utopia.
