Do or Do Not; There Is No Try

Do or Do Not; There Is No Try

Do you remember that seen in Star Wars where Master Yoda is training Luke to become a Jedi? Luke doesn’t believe in himself and he claims that he is trying.

Yoda then says “Do or do not; there is no try.”

Do you want to quit smoking?

Do you want to live a healthy lifestyle?

Do you want to be a successful entrepreneur?

There is no try.

The word ‘try’ is an excuse. You cannot ‘try’ to quit smoking. You cannot try to become a successful entrepreneur. You know what you need to do. You need to make the conscious decision and effort to do it.

To be a successful entrepreneur is as simple as this:

  1. Identify a problem.
  2. Build a solution to solve that problem.
  3. Charge money for it.

I realize that this is a bit of an oversimplification. But, there is no ‘try’. You should just remove that word from your vocabulary.

Do or do not. There is no try.
