There is no Try

In this clip Yoda teaches the greatest lesson. Don’t try! Do! Line up your action with your intention and there is no trying (which means no struggle, no trial as in testing or inquisition). If you watch the rest of the sequence in the movie you see the great effort that Luke exerts in failure and the deep focus and effortlessness of Yoda in success.

The other hidden gem, which I heard for the first time re-watching today, is Yoda’s comment that there is so much to unlearn. I think we have conditioned ourself with limiting beliefs about what we can accomplish. We reach the point where we won’t even try anymore.  We have so much to unlearn.
