Yoda will Make You Win at Life with These 3 Pieces of Advice:

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

You’re terrified to take action. You’re afraid to apply for that job, you’re afraid to ask for that interview, you’re afraid to jump out of your comfort zone.

Let go.

The truth of the matter is that you don’t have anything to lose. Whenever you’re afraid to do something, just ask yourself, “What’s the worst that could happen?” Almost always, asking this question will make you realize that you need to just do it. (there is no try)

2. “You will know (the good from the bad) when you are calm, at peace. Passive.”

Angry people never make good decisions. Most people already have a hard enough time deciding what the right course of action is. How harder must it be to make good decisions in a moment of anger.

I’ve experienced betrayal. Did I want to lash out?

Yes.

Did I?

No.

I will admit, it took some time, but after hurt feelings faded, and anger subsided, I realized that, at this point, the only person I’d been hurting was myself.

You must build the skill of being able to emotionally remove yourself from a situation if you want to make sound decisions.

 Let go.

3. “Do or do not. There is no try.”

It’s a cliche I know, but seriously…

Stop trying so hard and JUST DO IT!

Stop planning to do it. Stop thinking about doing it. Stop contemplating doing it. Stop wishing you were doing it. Stop wanting to do it.

Do it.

Whatever your “it” is.

You may fail-scratch that-you WILL fail, but you’ll learn from your failure.

 

Remember, there can be no success without failure. And in the end you’ll find true happiness and success!

Book of Sith – SWBTF #80

Play

Book of Sith, Darth Bane, Darth Plagueis, Mother Talzin, Darth Sidious, and more, all on the next Star Wars Beyond the Films. YOUR Star Wars discussion podcast! YOUR ticket to the EU!

This week true believers, Beyonders, Fanboys, Fangirls, respected aliens around the galaxy, The Defender of the EU; Mark Hurliman, and your EU Guru; Nathan P. Butler, sit down to discuss Star Wars: Crucible. Strap in and tighten your crash webbing Fandom, Star Wars Beyond the Films is setting off on another rapid-fire trip into the galaxy far, far away!

Mark talks about his holocron hunt.

Nathan discusses a fandom reaction to Jedi Path when the ebook version released. As well as the differences between the hard copy and the ebook versions of Jedi Path, and how the ebook enhances the original experience. Nathan hope they do similar with Book of Sith somehow.

Mark mentions his Jedi credit from Jedi Path and how Her Universe should sell them and other Sithly trinkets.

The guys ponder other Sith who might have had their works lost and thus missed getting into the book. Sith like the Sith Emperor for instance. Though Mark points out the Sith Emperor has to be left out to leave the mystery of what happened to the Pure Bloods….. those who bred with the Dark Jedi. Originally we thought they were hunted down and killed, but in light of The Old Republic MMO we learn that the Pure Blood Empire thrived, in fact it was this Empire that Revan sought out to stop at the end of the first KotOR game. The same mystery could be said as to why we don’t see Darth Krayt show up. Or the book slipped out of that Galaxy before his time.

Mark points out how Dan Wallace is real slick with his Tuckerisms. In this case as seen in the image above Dan used The ForceCast’s Eric Geller.

They also talk about the next book in the line…

THE BOUNTY HUNTER CODE. They discuss some of the other potential books in the line we might one day see as well.

So, once again, your dynamic duo cover entirely too much Sith Secrets in their ONE hour, but don’t worry, give it a go; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even get a little education on the EU while you’re at it. But no matter how you slice it and dice it, you’ll be having another adventure Beyond the Films. So sit back, hang on, enjoy the show, and may the Force be with you!
