Do Or Do Not. There Is No Try. Is Yoda Correct?
Is Yoda correct when he says, “Do or Do not. There is no try.”
Watch the video first, which is at the bottom of this post and then we can discuss it. I think I understand what Yoda is saying here and that relates to the person who cannot be bothered or just doesn’t believe that anything is possible.
There some things that are either impossible or virtually impossible and there are things that are definitely within our reach. If you said that you wanted to be a judge or a fighter pilot in your fifties. I would say that was virtually impossible if not impossible.
But if you were on assistance or the dole and you said, ‘I am going to build a business that will pay me a million dollars a year.’ Then I think that this a definite possibility. Can you see the distinct difference in the two ambitions. One is unlikely to happen and the other may well happen.
So yes, there are things that just can’t be done but there are many thousands which can be done. You have to exhaust all possible routes to your goal before you can say it can’t be done. Where would be without people like Henry Ford, Winston Churchill, Isaac Newton and Edison. So Yoda was partly right when he said, “Do Or Do not. There Is No Try.” But it is arguable both ways. I will let you decide for yourself.
