Self-Coach Sunday 68: Do Or Do Not

Trying is a waste of time. As Yoda said, “Do or do not.  There is no try.” Have you ever tried to pick up a pencil? Here is an exercise: place a pencil in front of you. Now TRY to pick it up. Do you have it in your hand? If so, you have failed the exercise. The instructions were to TRY, but you successfully picked up the pencil. You did it. You didn’t try. Trying implies that it isn’t done. So either do or do not.

I challenge you to change your language. Instead of try, do. Just remember, doing can have two outcomes: it will work or it won’t. If it works, great! If it doesn’t, discover what went wrong.

Trying is a waste of energy and goes against the natural flow of life. Shift your perspective and do or do not.
