Try Not. Do, or Do Not. There is no Try
Yoda said the above quote, “Try not. Do or do not. There is no try”.
(Well it was Frank Oz actually but I didn't want to ruin the moment)
If I tell you, “I tried to open the door”, you know I didn’t open it. If someone tells you they will “try to be there” you can guarantee that they will not be there.
Try is another word for fail, unless you play rugby of course.
Don’t even think about trying to do something, do it and be determined that you will ‘do it’. If not, you will merely try.
Here are a couple of things to forget.
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try and try again”.
Why bother? If you don’t succeed, make sure you do it next time. Or hide all evidence you attempted it.
“The whole world loves a tryer”.
Of course they do. People love tryers because they never really achieve anything and it makes them feel better to have someone less successful than them around.
You must be a do’er and not a try’er. Achieve things and be a success.
If you are not, don’t try to be. Just Be a success!
