Star Wars Quotes To Motivate You
If you are a Star Wars© fan, you may already be accustomed to Star Wars Day. May the 4th is a day marked by the fans to celebrate a movie franchise that is widely beloved and has found a way into everyday culture. One of the reasons Star Wars has such an incredible following is the story-telling. Who doesn’t love a story of someone facing challenges and finding a way to deal with them?
This got us thinking — sometimes our fitness journey forces us to deal with challenges head-on. Some of the wise words spoken in Star Wars can apply to other areas of our lives, giving us the motivation we need to keep working hard. So, to celebrate May the 4th in true SWEAT style, these are some of our favourite Star Wars quotes to help motivate you through any challenges!
Do what must be done. Do not hesitate. Show no mercy.
— Darth Sidious
The perfect motivational quote for starting any workout! Do what must be done and do it without hesitation. When you don’t give yourself the option to back out of your workout, you’ll be more likely to turn up and crush it. Discipline is the best road to accomplishment, after all.
It’s a chance for you to make a fresh start.
— Mon Mothma
Sometimes a workout just doesn’t go to plan. Maybe you struggled to complete all of your reps or you weren’t able to lift the weight you did last week. Mon Mothma has these words of wisdom to stop you feeling discouraged. Having a little self-compassion and forgiving yourself for mistakes or issues is important in order for you to grow. Remember that there is always tomorrow and always a chance to try again, or even to try something new!
Your focus determines your reality.
— Qui-Gon Jinn
Qui-Gon recognised the value of following his own instincts without losing focus or acting rashly. With this quote, he reminds us that the things you focus on can lead you to where you want to go, if you put the right energy into it. We naturally tend to put more energy into the things we find important, so it might be a case of adjusting your mindset to set you on the right path. So, maybe it’s time to check in and ask yourself — are you fully committed to what it is you want to achieve?
In my experience there is no such thing as luck.
— Obi-Wan Kenobi
The Jedi Master passed on a valuable lesson to his apprentice — hard work provides chances that luck never can. Wishing for a change doesn’t bring it any closer but working towards it and having a plan to reach those goals can make a difference. Many people believe you create your own luck by working hard, thereby giving yourself the best odds for success.
This is a new day, a new beginning.
— Ahsoka Tano
Ahsoka may not be everyone’s favourite Jedi but she definitely shows growth and change throughout The Clone Wars. Growth means facing difficult moments and finding a way to overcome them, something we frequently have to do throughout our fitness journey and our lives. Remember, every day brings a new opportunity. If yesterday didn’t work out the way you wanted it to, you can always start fresh today.
Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.
Perhaps one of the wisest characters to appear in Star Wars, Yoda offers lots of advice for adjusting your mindset. Too often, we allow the fear of failure to hold us back from doing something. It’s nice to be given a gentle push to set your fear aside and just go for it!
For the majority of us, our health and fitness journey is never going to be all smooth sailing. Take some inspiration from Star Wars and remember that having patience and a strong support system can help you to step forward and become who you want to be.
May the 4th be with you!
