“Try not.

Do or do not.

There is no try.”

~ Yoda

Are you “trying” to do something? That word is quite a trigger word for me. Remember Yoda from Star Wars?  “Try” gives us space for failure and, in fact, gives us an excuse for it.

“I am trying to lose weight.”
“I am trying to learn to knit.”
“I am trying…”

Sound familiar?

How about…

“I am losing weight.”
“I am learning how to knit.”
“I am doing it.”

Just do it. You may be not the best at it. Who cares! Stop trying and just do it.
