Do or Do Not. There Is No Try.

Do or Do Not. There Is No Try.

I sent this out a few days ago but I wanted to make sure you got to see it…

I’m a Star Wars fan.

I didn’t grow up being a Star Wars fan.

I married a Star Wars fan.

Now, I’m a Star Wars fan.

Our whole family is.

One Sunday a couple of weeks ago, the speaker ended his talk with, “I have spoken.”

(shout out to all the Mandolorian and Baby Yoda fans out there)

We all about fell out of our seats thinking how awesome it was.

I digress.

The reason I’m telling you about being a Star Wars fan is because I’m going to drop some Yoda wisdom on you, right now.

Yoda says…

“Do or do not. There is no try.”

I decided to drop the word TRY from my vocabulary.

You know what?

It was harder than I thought it would be.

I said “TRY,” a lot more than I realized.

I’m trying to remember to think my new thought.

I’m trying to stay in a good place in my brain.

I’m trying to be patient.

I’m trying to trust that everything will work out.

Trying isn’t DOING.

Now, I take the word ‘try’ out of my vocabulary…

look at how my words and sentences have changed:

I’m remembering to think my new thought.

I’m staying in a good place in my brain.

I’m being patient.

I’m trusting everything will work out.


Those thoughts feel much more empowering.

They feel more grounded.

More true.

They sound like the me I believe I am.

They sound like the way I want to show up in the world everyday.

Do or do not. There is no try.

Not just in the actions of our lives…

Actions come after thoughts.

The change has to happen in our brains first.

Jesus never said, “I’m trying to be me.”

He said, “I am.”

He never said, “Try to repent.”

He simply said, “Repent.”

He never said, “I’m trying to be the way, I’m trying to be the truth, I’m trying be the life.”

He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”

There is great power when we stop trying and start BEING.

In case you’ve not watched it yet, I created a FREE webinar to celebrate the launch of WARRIOR WOMEN!

If you’re feeling stuck in your life in any way…

If you made some New Year’s resolutions and you feel like you’ve already failed at them…

If you keep trying and not having success…

If you’ve tried to set up systems for yourself…

If you’ve taken courses and made plans and they keep not working…

If you can’t seem to get yourself motivated in your life, business, or health…

If you have done everything you thought you could do and you’re bored or don’t know what to do next…

If you look like you’ve got it all figured out to everyone else but not to yourself…

If you keep getting stuck in cycles of anxiety, stress, overwhelm, discouragement…

If you never feel like there is enough of you to go around and you don’t get to show up in your life the way you’d really like to…
