Do you believe that you can create your own reality; with everyone and everything in it? Do you have absolute faith in your potential? Will you set a goal and attain it? Do you have the tenacity, the motivation, the willPower to create the changes that you want to make? Don’t waste your time in guilt or misunderstanding. This is just wasted precious energy and time. (Yes, my dear, I’m talking to you.)
“Faith consists in believing when it is beyond the power of reason the believe.” Voltaire
In the Yogic practice, there are two interpretations of posture. One is that you should make adjustments in your posture so that it &lsquo’fits” your body; the concept is that you should never be too uncomfortable that it distracts you. The other philosophy is that to grow, and strengthen yourself, you will place yourself into uncomfortable positions – sometimes you will boarder pain. When you find yourself there – you should breathe and relax and believe that you are crossing a threshold.
“To believe in something and not to live it is dishonest” Gandhi
Believe in crossing a threshold, and finding strength, dedication, commitment and conviction on the other side. Change is not always a fun work in process – and it’s certainly not easy… but the benefits are priceless.
Ultimately, please recognize this truth:

Use good directions; a smart roadmap.
Experience this life and everything that it will offer you.
