Basically this means that you will only ever succeed if you try and succeed. Success has a simple formula, and that's a combination of effort and determination. Combine the two and only then you will have the ability, or chance, to succeed. If you spend your life wishing that something will happen without trying to make it happen then you will never be able to succeed in anything. Those who 'will and dare' are the people that do things and take chances. The people that do things and take chances are the ones who give themselves the opportunity to be able to do something and get in the position to succeed.
If you do nothing but wish in your life then there's no chance of ever being able to put yourself to be in a good position - any position that could possibly allow you to succeed in anything.
So what can you do? You can start trying. No matter what it is that you want to succeed in, whether it's a life goal or work, you will never be able to do anything if you do not put yourself in a position to move forward. If you start trying more in work and applying for more positions, then there is more chance of you getting promoted.
Equally, if you want to achieve a life goal then taking risks and chances that are going to get you there will only be the way that you can achieve what you want. Stick by your guns and take some chances. It's something you need to do if you want to have a better life, and if you want to achieve all these little things. Believe in yourself and you'll soon see the difference that that can make.
