Words to Avoid: ‘Try’

Yoda already told you, “There is no ‘try’, only ‘do’.”

If you meditate on this briefly, you’ll see that he’s got a real point.

The moment you tell yourself, or someone else, that you’re going to try something is the very same moment that you’ve decided you are OK with failing.

As I mentioned in my ‘Words to Avoid’ post the other day, the language you use is of the utmost importance.

It sets the stage for whether you will succeed, or fail, at any given task.

Remember: what you tell yourself, inside your head, matters just as much, if not more, that how you speak to others.
