Try is a lie

Motivational Speaker: George Torok

Trying is often an excuse for failing. How many times have you heard a reluctant person say “We will try” or “At least we tried”.

They usually hang their head in doubt or shame.

You might know the line from Yoda in Star Wars, “Do or do not – there is no try.”

You might enjoy this anecdote from my friend.
At our tai chi class, I heard our instructor use a little verbal
trick that you might be able to use.

Instructor: I want you to hold your hands like this.
Student: I’ll try.
Instructor: No, don’t try.
Student: I shouldn’t try?
Instructor: You should not try. “Try” means “lie.” Don’t try to do it.
Simply do it.

Wisdom from Yoda and Tai Chi instructors.

In the haze of the early morning, these things tend to meld together.

The feeling of placelessness is a bit like a dream: the heightened romance, the intense brooding, the inherently transitory nature of the whole affair. Placelessness happens…
