If wisdom you want, read this you must!

This weekend as I lounged and watched Star Wars Return of the Jedi I was reminded what an awesome motivator and speaker of the truth that Master Yoda is. So, I compiled some of my favorite words of wisdom for Motivation Monday by the beloved Jedi master.

“[Luke:] I can’t believe it. [Yoda:] That is why you fail.”

Empire Strikes Back

As Luke attempts to raise the X fighter from the swamp but fails Yoda responds with these famous words as he lifts up the X fighter with some Yoda mojo that seems effortless, teaching us we first we must believe to accomplish.

“Fear is the path to the dark side… fear leads to anger… anger leads to hate… hate leads to suffering.”

Phantom Menace

While evaluating young Anakin Skywalker, Yoda foreshadows his dark future with these wise words warning of the path down which fear will lead you.

“You must unlearn what you have learned.”

The Empire Strikes Back

As Luke becomes frustrated with Yoda’s request to move the X Fighter he gets schooled once more by Yoda’s insistence that he can no longer cling to that which he once believed to be true.

“Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not. Attachment leads to jealously. The shadow of greed, that is.”

Revenge of the Sith

In speaking to young Anakin Yoda serves some words of wisdom to dealing with loss in life and resting the urge to grasp and more importantly the repercussion of doing so.

“Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.”

Revenge of the Sith

Instructing Anakin in the way of the Jedi and overcoming attachment Yoda mutters these simple yet profound words.

“You will find only what you bring in.”

Empire Strikes Back

As Luke prepares to face himself in the cave Yoda grants him these words to help enlighten him to what lies ahead.

“Ohhh. Great warrior. Wars not make one great.”

Return of the Jedi

As Luke returns to the swamp in search of a “ Great warrior” the always clever Yoda slips these words in with a laugh.

“Do or do not. There is no try.”

Empire Strikes Back

Perhaps Yoda most famous words, spoken when with Luke at the swamp when he declares he will try to move the X fighter, teaching us all that it is never a matter of "try".
