To celebrate the 4th May and Star Wars Day here is a previous post re-published
Trying doesn’t work. When we say we’re going to try, it presupposes failure.
I tried for years to make certain changes and do certain things. What I didn’t realise was that the feeling of trying was becoming familiar. People like what’s familiar, so once I got used to trying, my neurology didn’t want to shock me by having me succeed. So I went on trying for years.
Have you become familiar with the experience of trying or struggling? If so, it may be time to find out what happens when you move beyond trying. What happens when you imagine getting what you want? How does it feel?
There is another phrase I like to use when people use the “TRY” word. “The worst angle you can approach any problem with is the TRY-ANGLE – However I do highly recommend the DO-ANGLE”
As Yoda said “Do or do not. There is no try.” Trying doesn’t work.
May the 4th be with you!
