“Everything in the Universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.” Rumi – This is a simple statement that plays out in our lives regularly. It comes in the form of the word “no” and negative phrasing. “I can’t do a headstand.” “I am overwhelmed with work and can’t do that.” “I do not have time to practice 5 x a week.”
What if you already know everything? What if you really can do anything you set your heart to? What if we define failure as not trying? How we define success is often the most important step in any project we take on. It is the way we evaluate and how we know when we are “done.” What I am really proposing, is that we define success as the level of commitment we make. Did I commit my energy fully to that or did I attempt to do that with one foot on land safe and dry?
Your commitment to your family, job, life, yoga practice and community is what creates success. It starts with you, today – now. Ask more of yourself than anybody else…then shine with all of the knowledge and experience within and share your talents with the world!
