Weakness to Strength

Last week we talked about making a conscious effort to bringing "namaste," out of the yoga rooms and into the work place, into the home, deeper into our lives.

This week we talked about "turning a weakness into a strength."

Turning a weakness into a strength is easy to locate and addressing the fitness and health sense. When we look in the mirror, we might say "I need to run more," or "I need to workout more often." If we don't feel right, we pause and usually take care of it. If we have a cold, we take medicine, if we have a headache, we take Tylenol.

But what do we do when it's about relationships in the workplace or at home or w a friend? So that's our focus this week. Lets take a moment to first acknowledge the issue, whether big or small, and think about what we can do to improve it.
A) what is it youd like to improve?
B) what is your plan to improve?
And remember, avoid pitfalls of old habits that have already lead to this "issue," needing addresses to begin with. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results... Don't go insane. Don't be afraid to do something different.

Imagine your envisioning this issue the same way you would a weight loss goal. If it were a weight loss goal, you'd wake up early in the morning for cardio, maybe workout on lunch and possibly even a third workout in the evening. Your address the issue, set a plan and work the plan. Now do that same thing for your "personal," goal.
Address the goal, set a plan, work the plan.

Namaste
