Can't wait to see the glorious return of Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon? Let's take a look at the wisdom of the Jedi, The Force and Master Yoda, to find lessons Star Wars can teach us about life.

(But even if the words "In a galaxy far, far away…', don't ring a bell for you, the rules are universal, so feel free to apply them in order to make your life better. And May The Force be with you!

Live the life you want to live (you can do it!).

“Do or do not… there is no try.” – Yoda in The Empire Strikes Back

There's no reason to waste your life being stuck in fear and uncertainty. You're free to be whatever you want to be. Just make a decision and stick to the plan. Remember, The Force is on your side.

Keep close to people who have faith in you.

“I find your lack of faith disturbing.” – Darth Vader in A New Hope

Warning! Pessimism is contagious. Stay away from people who make you feel bad about yourself. In other words, say NO to energetic vampires. The rule is pretty simple: be with those who support you and believe in you.

Be honest with yourself. You know what the right thing to do is.

“Already know you, that which you need.” – Yoda

Let your heart guide you. You carry all the answers within. Just listen to the voice of that inner Yoda of yours, and you'll find the way.

The Star Wars - A Story Full of Lifehacks

Nothing is impossible.

C-3PO: “Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately 3,720 to 1.”

“Never tell me the odds.” – Han Solo in The Empire Strikes Back

Even if your odds of success are really (I mean, REALLY) small, don't let this fact stop you from staying true to yourself and to your heart.

You succeed by overcoming failures.

“Strike me down and I will become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.” – Obi- Wan Kenobi in A New Hope

The road to success is paved with failure. No matter how hard you try, you can't avoid mistakes. After all, we're all humans here, aren't we? So, the point is to make proper conclusions out of those mistakes and to prevent them from happening in the future.

Don't let fear be your guide.

“Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” – Yoda in The Phantom Menace

When you're scared, you're vulnerable. You can't see clearly if you're paralized with fear. Keep in mind that very often our fears are causeless. Just pull yourself together and don't let the imaginary monsters impact your life.

Humor always makes it better.

(as garbage compactor closes in) “One thing’s for sure, we’re all gonna be a lot thinner.” – Han Solo in A New  Hope

Freaking out is a common reaction when something goes wrong. But will it help you to solve the problem? Doubtly. Humor, instead, will make you feel way better and give you some time to think the situation through. Humor is the key to success (and to girls' hearts as well ;))
