I won’t embarrass or frustrate any one I personally know on this one, but there are some individuals, I can see their faces now that if they say they will do something, I know it will be done. I can just count on them. Their word is gold.
Unfortunately, I also know some others that if they tell me they will do something, I have a great uncertainty it will get done (if ever). These individuals are so frustrating because they are so unfaithful. It drives me crazy.
“Do, or do not. There is no “try”. a quote from Yoda to Luke Skywalker.
I love these words from the fictional character, YODA (he is fictional, right?) because they speak of resolve and commitment. It’s an “all-in” mindset that if I say I will do something, it will get done.
How well does this describe you?
Does your word matter?
Maybe it’s because I’m a goal-oriented person, but I love this saying from Yoda because it conveys to me the idea of vision and priorities. It challenges me to set my mind on accomplishing something to experience some desired result.
But it takes it one step further. What Yoda’s quote suggests to me is even something more than just wanting to see a completed goal because any one can wish for good things to happen in their life. Can’t you? If you were to take just a few minutes to look at all the things going on in your life, can’t you just imagine improvements or desirable things to make your life better?
Of course you can. I can too. But what Yoda’s quote says to me is that besides seeing a vision of good things, it conveys to me the issue of setting priorities and being intentional. It means moving beyond vision and mere talking about accomplishing some desired result one day (just “trying” in a “whatever” kind of attitude”) to the idea of commitment –I’m going to make adjustments in my life to make this happen. I love that resolve.
So, my friend, are you willing right now to listen to the advice of a little, green person and stop saying “I’ll try….” to “I will …” ?
Are you willing to start getting very purposeful about accomplishing the things that are most dear to your heart?
“Do, or do not. There is no “try”.
