10 Powerful Insights On Life By Master Yoda

There is no denying of the Star Wars charm and lure, with the latest film in the series: The Last Jedi hitting the theaters, it has already seen a rise in a new generation of fans with the epic characters, well-devised plot and several insightful lessons for life.

Although the new films produced under the Star Wars banner have seen an introduction of new, younger characters- nothing beats the fact that reappearance of originals: Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker is what attracts people and fuels their excitement.

10 Lessons From Master Yoda

As filmed in The Last Jedi, the focus is on Luke and how his student- Kylo Ren, would turn and use his training for evil.

This leaves Luke conflicted to the point of feeling angry and disheartened- he is unable to let go of the past and that is when Master Yoda appears with his deep and wise thoughts.

‘The greatest teacher, failure is’

Failure teaches us important lifelong lessons while it’s natural to feel depressed and lost when failure comes our way- the key is not to internalize and cling on to it, rather gather insights on what the failure has taught you, let go of the past and make way for the future.

Direct your effort, time and energy to understand what went wrong and then align yourself for success and progress.

One’s attitude should always be ‘onward and upward’. Take risks, make mistakes, learn from failures and prepare yourself for success.

Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.

‘Train Yourself to Let Go of Everything You Fear to Lose’

You are not living if you are fearing. Success does not come to those who constantly worry and fear.

One needs to develop resilience and courage if he/she has an aspiration to grow and succeed. Learn to challenge yourself and be ready to face consequences- tell yourself: ‘come what may, this too shall pass’.

It ties to getting comfortable with failure and accepting losses humbly.

Don’t let that shake your core in fact let that serve as fuel to your inner fire and understand it is okay to struggle and that eventually success shall come your way.

Have faith!

Challenge Your Beliefs And Learning

It is important to question what you have been taught and whatever you have learnt so far, challenge concepts for rationale and background. Try viewing perspectives from a neutral standpoint and be open towards embracing change.

What you have learnt, you have learnt- but there are times when you need to unlearn certain habits, skills and beliefs.

You may eventually find out that you need to adapt yourself to foster progress and maybe challenge and change your mindset and ways of doing things.

Don’t be resistant, let the change flow and be curious. ‘Unlearn what you have learnt’ and leave no space for ‘I Can’t’.

Don’t rely On Assumptions And Hearsay

Like Yoda says: ‘clear your mind must be’.

Get rid of biases and don’t be driven by what people say and you assume. Experience things for yourself, challenge information you receive and don’t be hasty in passing judgments.

Make an effort to balance your mind, heart and gut- promote neutrality and question evidence.

By the virtue of cultural and religious backgrounds, we are raised with a preconceived set of notions- understanding one’s background and then independently viewing information and getting rid of biases and judgmental sentiments is important.

Be Firm In The Decisions You Take

‘Do or do not, there is no try’ as Yoda puts it clearly signifies the importance of being decisive and firm in your decisions.

Compose your thoughts, weigh all the pros and cons you want but once you take a decision- stick with it.

Either you decide to move forward with something or you don’t- don’t linger on and stay confused in the middle, pick a side and go with it.

Being conclusive boosts inner peace but one must train him/herself that once you have taken a decision, you should not look back and regret because hindsight is always 20*20.

Decisions you took are yours to make but leave no room for regret- stay put and be firm.

Adopt 3D’s: Determination, Dedication and Diligence

Yoda coaches Luke to ‘do’ and not merely ‘try’- this is a fine difference.

You need to keep trying, keep making efforts but at the end of the day be determined to achieve your object, have a dedicated mindset and be diligent in the efforts you invest.

Your focus should be towards doing and achieving rather than simply trying. Put your best foot forward towards accomplishing your goals.

Aim for Skies But Be Mindful Of the Present

Yoda was skeptical about Luke’s presence of mind when deciding to train him, stating that he was always dreaming about the future at the cost of present.

It’s important that one must not lose sight of what’s happening ‘now’ and get carried away by what ‘will’ be.

We are not against futuristic approach as means to determine direction, but it should not come at the cost and compromise of what you are currently doing.

Live in the moment, focus on what needs to be done now, sharpen your presence of mind and you will become more observant.

Patience is a Virtue

Yoda decided to go into exile at the end of Revenge of Sith rather than spending time fighting the New Empire and gathering small groups across the galaxy- he chose to wait.

Good things come to those who wait and this was proven as Luke showed up a few years later and Yoda trained him for winning. Develop stability and patience, don’t be short sighted and jump towards taking decisions- take your time and think things through before reaching a conclusion.

We live in a fast paced world where everything can be managed by a few clicks or is at the convenience of our fingertips- we are conditioned to get what we want and this has left us with a nonsensical sense of entitlement towards everything.

One must develop a strong resolve towards waiting for things to happen at the right time.

Have Belief in Yourself

During one of the training sessions when Luke said “I can’t believe it”, Yoda reiterated “that is why you fail”.

If you won’t have self-belief, how will you succeed? If you won’t trust that you will be successful you are bound to fail.

One needs to adopt an attitude for success- you need to have faith in yourself that you will make things work despite the challenges. If you will not be confident with your own self, you are bound to lose.

Quit fighting with yourself and align your mind and heart to balance.

You Shall Reap What You Sow

Fundamental law of life is you attract the same energy you create. When Luke is about to enter the dark cave, Yoda tells him “you will only find what you bring in” and Luke ends up discovering a likeness of his own self.

Karma exists- what you will reap, you shall sow. If you are constantly negative and have a pessimistic mindset then you will find yourself in a depressed, low, lost zone.

You will feel you are bombarded with difficulties and are struggling often.

On the contrary, if one feels grateful and positive- life resonates with this feeling and one will feel things to be easier and more pleasant.

Bad things can happen to anybody- the strength of a person lies in dealing with hardships in a humble manner and a positive attitude.
