Darth Vader Could Have Been Your Life Coach

by | 26. June 2018

The most infamous anti-hero of our time could have been a life coach. Give or take a few acts of evil. No one can say Darth Vader lacked potential. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, Yoda, and the Emperor Palpatine were amongst the believers in Vader’s abilities to bring the Force into balance — and to wreak havoc in the galaxies. In other words: life coach material.

Customer acquisition cost probably would have been relatively high for Vader…maybe some potential customers would hesitate…
Sure, Vader used his potential for twisted domination as a minion of an Eee-vahl Emperor. But his words reveal his commitment to a few principles life coaches believe in.

Darth “Potential-Gone-Wrong” Vader reminds us to pick the right people to guide us…or you’ll end up badly burned, estranged from your kids, and have a bewildering case of helmet hair.

If Darth Vader were your life coach, this is what you would hear. Out of love.
