So today is Star Wars day, as I’m sure you already know, and I figured there was no better way to celebrate this day than to provide you with my favourite pieces of advice from Yoda. Enjoy!
“Do. Or do not. There is no try.”
I’m sure almost everyone has heard this piece of advice in some form or another. It really sums up making your decision, choosing your action, and sticking with it. If you’re going to do something, do it right and commit yourself.
“Many of the truths we cling to depend on our point of view.”
I think this one is extremely true. It’s important to consider all points of view before choosing to stick adamantly to something that you see as your truth.
“Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you it will.”
Every step you talk in the wrong direction will make it one step further when you decide to turn back. Reflect on your choices as you go, and make sure to constantly reassess so that the dark can’t consume your destiny.
“Named must your fear be before banish it you can.”
You have to know and admit your fears before you can overcome them. Name it and accept it, and you’re one step closer to getting over it.
