Can achieving success really be that simple?
Well, yes! But first, let’s add in a few additional ingredients and details to take action.
To start, let’s get clear about what defines “success” when we’re seeking it. I like to think of success as something you set your mind to and achieve. Perhaps success is transitioning to a more fulfilling career, to travel three times a year, learn how to hold a handstand, or resolve a conflict with a family member.
All of these various examples of success require clarity, effort, and patience to achieve. To get to that level, we need tools.
As a business professional, yoga guide, online content creator and TV host, one of the most incredibly simple, yet powerful tools I have used to achieve some leaps and levels of success is breath work, commonly referred to in yoga as pranayama. Specifically, conscious breathing has been known to lower stress levels, alter energies, feed healthy cells, and sleep more soundly, along with many other studied and proven benefits — including success!
Looking back at our steps for achieving success (clarity, persevere and patience), I’m going to share with you two exercises to feel limitless and empowered in whatever your highest potential endeavors are calling out to you. You can be anywhere, positioned any way to do these exercises, but preferably seated with a long spine. Most important, offer your self the patience and time to set a foundation to take these steps. Because, like building a home, what good is the second floor bedroom (which I would probably turn in to a yoga room) if the foundation isn’t solid?
