Keep Growing

tree-1247796_960_720

It fascinates me how some people are confident enough in themselves to know that they do not need to keep learning and growing.

Or, perhaps I am just different.

I am learning and constantly reminding myself that everyone is different and therefore, will not think the way I think or value what I value.

It is still a challenge for me.

Why?  Because there is a side of me that wishes I have their confidence and self-belief.  I still sit and listen to my yoga teachers and think that I what I know is just a tiny drop in their ocean of knowledge.

Yes, I do realise that I know a whole lot of what I do know.  I have a masters degree in Exercise Physiology.  I am a certified in NLP to Train the Trainers. I am an international master trainer for Les Mills International. I have a whole list of fitness and sport coaching qualifications, and a bunch of other training courses that I have been on.

And yet, I feel I know nothing and believe what Shunryu Suzuki says, “If your mind is empty, it is ready for anything. In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities; in the expert’s mind there are few.”

And I wish that everyone believes the same.

But, everyone is different and they are on their own path.

So, I breathe and remind myself that I am on my own journey.

I can tap into the kind of confidence that these other people have and yet stay true to me.

I believe in constant growth, because otherwise, I believe we stagnate or even die.  I believe that if the human race has the same value, we would keep growing and there will be peace.

I have been very fortunate on my Les Mills journey to be surrounded by other Trainers and Presenters who believe in constant growth, and that is why I am still proud to be working with them.

I have had the pleasure of working with other Network Marketing Professionals who also believe in the same.

I have faith that one day, more people minds will be open to that same belief.

Till then, I keep breathing.
