Better to Do than to Try

Beyond a shadow of a doubt
Post Written By Eugene Morgan

“Do, or do not. There is no ‘try’.”- Yoda (‘The Empire Strikes Back’)

When we say to ourselves or others, that we will ‘try’ to do this or that, we’re leaving room for doubt. It is natural to have some doubts when we’re challenged to do something we feel uncomfortable doing. We can think of many reasons why we get afraid to do something.  We have two choices; we can listen to doubts in our head, or we can ignore the doubts in our heads. Doubting is a circular thinking exercise in the mind that keeps us from doing. The fastest way to expel doubts from our heads is just do it, take action. Something about taking action breaks up the doubts in our heads. We have more opportunity for success if we do than if we try.
