Do Something By Silvia Mordini
“People of accomplishment rarely
sat back and let things happen to them.
They went out and happened to things.”
~ Leonardo da Vinci
The question is should you do a yoga teacher training? Is now the right time? Are you ready? Just by asking the question means you are ready. Don’t let the worry of doing it or not doing it steal all your energy. Otherwise while you’re waiting life will just pass on by and another year will be passed. Face your stories and choose to create a new story RIGHT NOW.
“Action is about living fully. Inaction is the way that we deny life. You can have many great ideas in your head, but what makes the difference is the action. Without action upon an idea, there will be no manifestation, no results, and no reward.”
That pretty much sums up our @alchemyofyoga philosophy!
DO SOMETHING NOW
If you wait until you are “ready” and things are “perfect” you will get stuck in the inertia of inaction. Get started in taking small steps towards your intentions within the next 24 hours. Do not let self-doubt cripple you into statis. And know that once you’ve begun then keep acting on your goals a little at a time. The smallest efforts keep the momentum going and create powerful change. As they say in South America, “little by little one travels far.”
DON’T GIVE UP
Part of our humanness is our ability to be really hard on ourselves especially when things don’t go the way we had envisioned. When you meet yourself on the path you’ll quickly learn that acting on things doesn’t always yield the results you expected. That is no reason to stop. Instead amp up your efforts to keep doing something. Like the Lotus Blossom which rises up from the mud of the swamp through murky waters, moving free into the air and up towards the sun pristine and white don’t stop sticking to your vision. As Florence Scovel Shinn writes, “Every great work, every big accomplishment, has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision, and often just before the big achievement, comes apparent failure and discouragement.” Therefore let us be as firm and resolute as the Lotus Blossom, in manifesting the most joy-filled, peaceful and healthful life we can envision.
I also learned from my parents to practice gratitude with enthusiasm every day. Through the doing of life and manifesting joy it is important to maintain your motivation by sharing your gratitude for your attempts as well as your achievements. A positive attitude may get you started in doing something but what keeps it sustainable is appreciation for those that play into your success.
My yoga practice reminds me of all three of these aspects of living an inspired life. I get on my mat each day and “do something”, I do not give up my practice when life is inconvenient, and I certainly give thanks to all who made it possible for me to move, breath and celebrate my joy at being alive in this moment! And in turn this stokes my rebel spirit to go out and happen to things.
If you feel the call to take a deep soul dive dedicated to yourSELF then DO SOMETHING. Sign up today.
See you on the mat in #Bali or #CostaRica 2019!
Love yourself, love your day, love your life! Silvia
