2009: Do or Do not, There is No Try

BAN TRYING. eliminate trying from your life. Just Do it. Cold Turkey.

you can, we can, unlearn what you have learned. unlearn the negative, banish the doubt. Go back to when you had faith, and you could dream.

Reach!, stop being afraid of failure, that's the only way you learn to skate. Be Happy.

mostly importantly BELIEVE! look for it within you & BELIEVE in yourself!! then act, and achieve whatever it is that you want.

Don't forget it. Make notes, Send postcards to yourself, videos, letters, just remember you are great, you're important, and you can do anything, cuz it's your life, so make it rock, and be the greatest & happiest version of yourself. Make your mark!

few years ago I made a resolution to eliminate the negatives (most especially people who made me feel bad about myself, etc) & keep the positives & neutrals.

This year. No Negatives, Neutrals are becoming so much and boring, positives are almost absent.
so 2009, I will put the positives in my life, I will be surrounded by joy, inspiration, be it a novel like the Alchemist, or a youtube video, or song, or a friend, I will be happy. And the positives in my life will be more, and I will try to become a positive to the people around me.

Here we go. HAPPY 2009. & may the good Lord I believe in, or what you believe in Bring you & I, joy, happiness, inspiration, strength of body & mind, greatness, faith, and friends in the years to come.
this 10 minute video inspired this post, watch it, it's pretty good. OMG and who else is inlove with Kanye's song Pinnochio Story:

  15. Happy New Year's miss.

    Ban trying. I love it.

    Pinocchio Story isn't my favorite track, but i like the lyrics.

    what an inspirational vid. "trying" is safer for us to say than actually doing because subconciously, we think we will make a mistake and fail, but nobody is perfect and we have to make mistakes in order to succeed.

    It's on that Geico status, but it's so simple, we all can DO it. Genius.

    Try... eh, I mean have a good year, lol.

  16. Happy New Year! I feel you no more trying just do like NIKE "Just Do It!"

  17. Great post, inspiring and I plan on staying motivated too!

  18. happy new years. Great hair cut you look good.

  19. You know what? This is great advice. Thank you for the New Year's wishes, and I hope you have a fantastic year yourself!

  20. very true. choices/action. i don't have any 2009 resolution..i have a mission lol...and in it for the long haul...creating positive habits...;)

    Happy New Year!

    I too plan to banish all the negatives from my life.

  42. I couldn't agree more. Don't "try." Instead, "do!"

  43. AHHHH That's like my favorite quote ever...shout out to Yoda.

  44. I totally agree. I find myself still saying "try" and I stop/ restart my sentence without the word. Someone told me to stop saying "try". I have abolished "try", "can't", and any other words out of my vocab. Amen
