Those who yearn for anything they haven't had before have to do things they haven't done before.
It is difficult if not impossible to get ahead in life by just continuing to do what we have always been doing or what has always been done. It would be difficult to find examples of people who are successful and have not tried out things that were different if not radically new.
Nobody is perfect. Our imperfections seldom allow us to be successful the first time we try anything. Failures should not make us stop; instead, they should be used to learn; to make changes in the way we are trying to move ahead. Only if a thorough analysis actually reveals that what you have started out to do is not feasible should you stop.
And perhaps then you can take up another path that hasn't been explored.
