Being ~Doing

How you doing on those resolutions and goals for the new year? Goals are awesome and have their place yet they come with a self-defeating shadow side as well. The cultivation of discipline is one of the most valuable skills you can have in life and a skill set I teach to all my students yet it doesn’t happen in a vacuum and a significant number of people were raised in a environment contrary to it. Even those who were provided the tools for self discipline from a young age can struggle. There is I feel a better way to progress towards excellence than a mere carrot always in front of you. It’s way of being, rather than only a external target as your impetus. Here is one article that touches on the subject.
