“Do or Do Not. There is No Try”…Yoda (Star Wars)

I used this phrase on a friend of mine who said he was going to “try” to do something.  Immediately, and without hesitation of any kind, my mind recalled, and my voice regurgitated Yoda’s quote. 

My friend looked at me quizzically, and contemplated a moment, saying, “I’m not sure I buy that.” 

As I brought up scenarios where the logic applied…he brought up scenarios where it became in question, and I began to doubt what I thought I knew.

They call him “Coach”, and he asked, “If one of my players misses a tackle and gives his best effort…and maybe even slowed the carrier down so someone else could make the tackle and he comes off the field and says, “I tried Coach”…what is my reply? Do or Do Not. There is no try??

What do you say about this? Do you buy it as truth?  What are your thoughts?

This blog is centred on the proverb stating that there is no word such as try. The one has either to do it or don't do it. It is good to read about the experinces of authors supporting this statement. A great lesson given by this blog!!

Star Wars was a low budget science-fiction film that became a blockbuster box office success. The movie has been extremely popular with all cultures and ages for several decades. As well as being popular Star Wars also conveys many important themes. I believe one of the more prominent themes throughout the movie is the classic hero journey. The hero journey is a major part of stories and myths throughout the world. Both primitive and modern cultures use hero journeys as the basis for stories.
