“Do, or do not. There is no try”

I just remembered this quote from Master Yoda (Star Wars).

Of course there is “Try”. If something has a name then it must exist. BUT

Jedi Master Yoda When master Yoda trained young Luke to be a Jedi Master, there could not be a “Try”. Laser sharp focus and action. Otherwise he couldn’t control “the Force”.

Most of our actions in life is a “Try” and when we fail, we say “Oh, I tried but it was too hard…” and all the other excuses. A good basketball player never says to himself, “I’ll try to throw the ball and “with God’s help” it will score. (Attention Basket Ball trainers) When he shoots the ball he sees (or must see) it going through the hoop.
The first action of creation was bringing the Light to the world (There is a deeper meaning to why I phrased it so, but this for another time.)

God said “Let there be Light!” and “There was Light”. Yes, I agree that we don’t have the same power as God, but from this we learn that to succeed in our actions we need to act as if our goals are achieved.
Always Begin with the end in mind.

Most of you spiritual people know this principal but it is good to have a reminder from time to time. Be a Jedi and control “The Force”.
