In honor of Star Wars Day, here are the greatest lessons I learned from Master Yoda.
* “Wars not make one great.”
* “Size matters not! Judge me by my size, do you?”
* “CONCENTRATE!” –just good every day advice.
On daily tasks: * “All his life he has looked away to the future…to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was.”
On accomplishments: * “Do or do not. There is no try.”
On faith: * Luke: “I can’t believe it.” Yoda: “That is why you fail.”
On aging gracefully: * “When 900 years old you are, look as good you will not!”
On being organized: * “Lost a planet, Master Obi-Wan has. How embarrassing.”
On parenting: * “Truly wonderful, the mind of a child is.”
On humility: * “Anger, fear, aggression…the dark side are they.”
* “Much to learn, you still have.”
And my favorite: “Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. And hate leads to suffering.”
