    We all enjoy watching Star Wars, but have the films been a source of inspiration or teaching to anyone?

    This has been a particularly tough year for me and has resulted in me really doubting myself. But I keep hearing Yoda, from The Empire Strikes Back, say "That is why you fail." My litte green guru reminds me that success comes from self-confidence and beleving in yourself.

    Does anyne else have stories of things that they have learned from the Star Wars films or from fellow Star Wars fans?

    Has SW been an inspiration for real-life stuff...you better believe it!

    When I am at the gym, I have movie soundtracks (typically one of the SW soundtracks) playing on my CD walkman. Try giving up on a set of bench press...when you've got that scene where Yoda lifts the X-Wing ;)

    2003 was probably the worst year of my life, and the only way I can describe how I felt was like Luke getting hammered with Force Lightning. Alot of what kept me going was alot of that Star Wars philosophy you're talking about.
