10 Inspirational Quotes From Yoda In Star Wars You Need To Know

10 Inspirational Quotes From Yoda In Star Wars You Need To Know

If you are crazy about Star Wars movies like me, I bet you are totally mesmerized by the legendary Grand Jedi Master, Yoda.  He was created by George Lucas and made the first appearance in “The Empire Strikes Back” in 1980.  Yoda was only 26 inches tall, more than 900 years old and a member of an unknown species.  He was widely known for his remarkable power, unique personality, a far more intuitive knowledge and a keen sense of awareness.

As the greatest Jedi Master of the Jedi Order, Yoda influenced generations of Jedi with enlightened advices.  By providing guidance and sage wisdom, he was the driving force behind the heroes like Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Yoda’s most important apprentice was probably Luke Skywalker, whom he trained to become the future of the Jedi. Yoda would time to time rigorously test his trainees to mental and physical extremes and yet he was humble and gentle. His students often strongly disagreed with him at first, but gradually came to understand his insights.

  1. “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
  2. “You will know when you are calm, at peace. Passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack.”  – The Phantom Menace
  3. “Do or do not. There is no try” – The Empire Strikes Back
  4. “Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is.” – Attack of the Clones
  5. “Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.” – The Empire Strikes Back
  6. “Ready are you? What know you of ready? For eight hundred years have I trained Jedi.  My own counsel will I keep on who is to be trained. A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind. This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away…to the future, to the horizon.  Never his mind on where he.  Hmm?  What he was doing. Hmph. Adventure. Heh. Excitement. Heh. A Jedi craves not these things. You are reckless.” – The Empire Strikes Back

  9. “Do not assume anything Obi-Wan. Clear your mind must be if you are to discover the real villains behind this plot.” – Attack of the Clones
  10. “Yes, a Jedi’s strength flows from the Force.  But beware of the dark side, Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they.  Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight.  If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will, as it did Obi-Wan’s apprentice.” – The Empire Strike Back

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

The Need for Change

Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

    Signs It’s Time to Redefine

    “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

    So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

    In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

    “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

    The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

    When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

      Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

      And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
