Growth Is the Most Important Thing There Is

Growth Is the Most Important Thing There Is

Where in your Life are you staying in your comfort zone?

The thing is what's wrong with staying in the comfort zone?

Nothing!

It's safe. It's safer than not knowing what will happen beyond the comfort zone. What's beyond the comfort zone is scary! Because there is uncertainty and you're scared of what you don't know.

But what's possible beyond the comfort zone? Beyond your Edge?

Growth.

And the opportunity to test your secret super power of Courage.

The 3rd principle of Baron's Baptiste's "8 Universal Principles of Stepping up to the Edge" is about acknowledging that Growth is the Most important there is and that in order to grow, you need to accept your Fears as it is. Your fears are stopping from what you want to make happen in your life.

Be in the Now and You’ll Know How

Are you with me or are you not with me?

I’m committed to living and breathing the 8 Principles for Stepping up to the Edge from Baron’s book - “Journey into Power"; one Principle at a time.

Are you willing to Step up to Your Edge?

The 1st principle ask that you be NOW HERE in the present moment and to let go of the stories in your head, which brings you to NOWHERE.

And this post delves the 2nd principle which gives you access to answering the HOW - if you are NOW HERE, and then HOW?

We are Either Now Here or Nowhere

So starts my journey into sharing more about Baptiste Yoga and how it has impacted my life. And following up from last weeks on post on 8 Universal Principles of Stepping up to the Edge, taken from Baron Baptiste’s book “Journey into Power.” Every other week, I’ll explore each principle and share my personal insights and quotes from the book. 

In Baptiste Yoga, there are 3 practices - Asana, Meditation and Inquiry. By sharing my story, I am in Inquiry, which is an access to discovery and new possibilities. 

I invite you to be in discovery of what's possible for you by joining me in being Now Here in in your life, practice and teaching one week.

The 3 Practices of Baptiste Yoga

In Baptiste Yoga, there are 3 Practices — Asana, Meditation and Inquiry - practices that we want to embody ON and OFF our mat. It’s not always perfect where we can be in practice of the physicalness that will lead to the awareness and self-discovery. All we can do is to be willing to try and let be.

10 Practical Ways To Create a Worry-Free Life

10 Practical Ways To Create a Worry-Free Life

I have anxiety issues. I Worry a lot. I’m not afraid to admit it.

This post started a while ago because of what I was experiencing personally in my life. Then someone close to me, in fact 2 of them - shared their deep worries and thoughts. And I desperately wanted to help them. Then I realised that I was trying to fix them when there is in fact, nothing wrong with them.

They don’t need my advice. They know what to do. They need a space to be heard.

The only I could do is to write, and keep on writing. And so here are some practical steps to help lessen your worry load, as they did help with mine:

  1. Practice Deep Breathing

  2. Focus on the present moment

  3. Keep a journal

  4. Be in Action 

  5. Acknowledge your worries

  6. Let your worries out into the light.

  7. Get physical

  8. Take your worries on an adventure

  9. Cut yourself some slack

  10. Listen to Bob Marley
