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.
