The great Star Wars movies have remained popular for generations and have become a part of our culture as have some of the phrases, perhaps the most notable being "may the force be with you." It's a lovely thought and one that you probably should wish upon a friend, but, a more contemporary and practical spin on the phrase came from an interview with Harrison Ford as he spoke about his involvement with the films. He talked about what the "force" was all about. The former Han Solo personalized the phrase turning it into a retrospective statement, saying, "May the force be within you... force yourself." It's true, we all have the power and the strength within us. What we don't all have is the motivation or the drive to force ourselves to be our personal best at whatever it is that we choose to do. A boat is useless without water to float on... and so too, are our dreams rendered useless without the passion from within to support them and turn them into reality. Focus on your life's goals... fuel your fire from within and then dig deep inside and force yourself. And may the force be "within" you.
