The Yoga of having things your way

The Yoga of having things your way

russell_simmons_yoga_caro_page-bg_22853 the cofounder of the hip-hop music label DEF JAM and the creator of several clothing fashion lines BURST INTO MY YOGA CLASS Sunday 7 minutes late….. He unapologetically asked that others move their matts as he took a spot right in the front. He wasn’t rude… he was just focused on his goal of showing up to improve his health.
The next several minutes I moved about my matt lost in thought. How many times had i missed class because I was going to be a little late… afraid of being rude… or being judged. How many times have I had an excuse in my life not to take what I wanted for fear of being judged by judgmental people…or stuck judging myself?
Some may say he was allowed to get what he wanted because he is rich and famous. However, I believe it is because a person allows him/herself to go after what he/she wants that they become rich, famous, happy, prosperous… or what ever else they want.
How often do we let the smallest thing stop us from having what we want?… from going to the concert, from asking for the date, asking or the sale, demanding the raise, or demanding more out of life? How often do we let ourselves off he hook because we’re a little late and say why even try, why even show up….
Some of you have a cheat meal then give up on your diet… give up on your whole program.
You know how you can keep yourself from starting over again???
Stop giving up.
Stop letting little things… or even big things stop you.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” -Jobs
