We’re just back home to the mountains after a super transformative time in Europe for the Berlin Weekend of Ease as well as Amsterdam’s 200+Hour Leadership: Spark Your Creativity. We practiced improving how we move, having meaningful conversations with our breath, and dropping the extra tension and stress we are so good at holding onto. These in person moments are magical. I’m humbled as this community grows and expands all around the globe. Strala Guides literally have friends everywhere and maybe that’s what makes me most proud. How we are is what we share and it’s super special to be in a group of people prioritizing feeling better.
I want to share with you one of the many amazing takeaways from our training and conversation time. Hopefully this will help you connect to yourself as you expand your big ideas into the world.
1. Embody what you want to share
When you are a living, breathing example of what you aim to share with others, you automatically share your passion with whomever you come into contact with. To practice what you preach means that you are moving in alignment with your highest self, and the universe will support this by presenting you with more opportunities to keep sharing your magic. If you find yourself trying to convince yourself that you are X, Y, or Z, go back to your practice and continue working on yourself until you naturally embody the medicine you want to release into the world.
2. Beginner’s mindset leads to mastery
Contrary to popular belief, embracing a beginner’s mindset is necessary for continued improvement. Continued improvement is key for being fantastic at what you offer. Anyone worth admiring in the professional space is constantly revamping what they do, who they are, and how they can serve. It’s like how in yoga, it is imperative to address the parts of your practice that feel particularly challenging. Working on these tricky bits allows you to elevate your own practice and life, enabling you to help others do the same. It’s when you get interested in improving that you become really interesting to others.
3. Don’t force your passion to be your paycheck
Before taking the plunge into monetizing what sets your soul alight, give yourself time. Time to practice, improve, and create opportunities for yourself that allow you to organically feed your passion and serve. Eventually, this will lead to you spending more of your time doing what you love, and naturally a suitable financial life will follow. We are able to accomplish so much more when we work towards process and efficiency, rather than end points and short term success. This is true in both our yoga practice and in our careers. Remember, you are a priceless human – don’t sell yourself or your passion short.
We hope to see you at a Strala Training in person soon. Berlin, London, Sundance and Miami are coming up.
