Yoga can do more than improve your figure, it can teach you life lessons you can use towards your own career.
It is often said that the effort you put on the yoga mat is the effort you put in your life outside the mat. This has proven true for many people who partake in yoga, and many report that the results can be seen in their career. Yoga helps remove mental blocks that keep you from achieving your potential. Here are some lessons that yoga can teach you about life and your career.
- If you don’t keep on track, you will never reach your goal.
There is always a reason NOT to do something: “I’m too tired,” “I can never get the pose right anyway,” “I’ll do it later.” Instead, focus on why you should do that thing: You feel better after doing it, you enjoy the process, and you’ll eventually reach your goal.
- If you say you can’t, you won’t
Do you find the crow pose impossible to hold for more than 3 seconds? This may be because you tell yourself that it’s difficult, which leads to not trying. Believing you can’t do something before trying will only lead to failure.
