Saw the Star Wars Trilogy again. Got to thinking about the Jedi and
whatnot. Yoda says "Do or do not. There is no try." Sounds good, sounds
rational, sounds true. Question: is it?

A synthesis of "Do or do not. There is no try." goes like this:
In any action, success must be visualized and the subject must believe
in success. Otherwise, subject will subconsiously sabotage the action,
leading to defeat.

Question: is it possible to take an action, and succeed, without belief
in success or defeat?

Question: is above synthesis accurate? If so, how accurate?
