In Star Wars the movie, Yoda gives some wise instruction to Luke Skywalker.

Luke has a belief, or a lie that he tells himself, just as we all do, that it is Impossible. At this point in the movie, Luke has already moved stones with his mind, but a spaceship? It is too big he says, I have already tried and it cannot be done.

Improvement Comes from Change

by Mickey O'Brien in TUPS Comments: 0
