In this episode Christy and Rob discuss:

  • “Try” doesn’t get people anywhere 
  • What to say instead of “try” 
  • Do or do not, there is no try 

Key Takeaways: 

  • “Try” is a very noncommittal word. When you say you’ll do something or you won’t do it, it’s committing either way while “try” is the ugly middle ground between that. 
  • Our bodies pay attention to our subconscious. If you say “I’m committed to doing this”, there’s an energy that creates a whole state and you start committing and deciding and moving towards what you do want. 
  • Learn from Yoda, say you’ll “do” or “do not” instead of “try”. That means that you will fully commit when deciding to do an action and also that you will say “no” when you decide that you’re not going to do it. 


“If you say it out loud, if you say it to yourself, say it with conviction. Do it with feeling, with every single cell believing that you’re moving in this direction.” – Christy Whitman
