In the movie, Star Wars, Luke Skywalker and Yoda, the Jedi Master, stand near the edges of the Dagobah swamps.
Luke is training in earnest to be a Jedi. Yoda turns to Luke and asks him to raise his sunken starfighter, which weighs several hundred tons, from the Dagobah swamps with the power of his mind alone.
Luke says “I’ll try.” “No,” scolds Yoda. “Do, or do not. There is no try.”
Yoda’s right. There is no try
If you doubt such wisdom, try lifting a spoon from the table.
No don’t lift the spoon. Put it down. Now try to lift it. You can’t try.
You can either lift the spoon or you can’t.
In business and in life you can succeed or fail, but you can never try. Get rid of your self-defeating thoughts and words. There is no try.
