I think it quite clear that I’m a Star Wars fan, or at least you know that now. One of my favorite movies is The Empire Strikes Back with Yoda being one of my most favorite characters. All though he’s not in the film for very long, his insight transcends film and is easily integrated into daily life. Assuming that “Do or do not, there is no try” is the most known movie line in the Star Wars universe, I’m glad to name it as my favorite as well.
To “do or do not, there is no try”, speaks volumes to me. I spent a majority of my life trying something new but never giving it my all. Maybe that was okay when I was younger, but now that I’m 25, I think a change is completely necessary. How can I expect a different outcome when I’m repeating the pattern that got me to the same place, each time.
In case you’re wondering, this is in reference to blogging. I’ve been blogging or web designing since high school. Since I was about 15 years old, I taught myself to code, use HTML, PHP, and how to use Photoshop. But then I get discouraged by the lack of readers, the numbers. Those numbers don’t mean anything to me anymore. By being able to allow myself to acknowledge that fact, I feel like a gained a universe.
Success and wealth aren’t determined by how many people comment, like, share, or view my blog. Success and wealth are the good feelings that I pour into my blog, and hopefully, reaches someone who needs that positivity. The way I feel, the way you feel, is much more important than a number. Focus on that and you will be able to do anything without even trying.
