I have to admit, there are times when I feel so disappointed in myself. And I hear the same from friends and clients all the time.
“I’m so embarrassed. I should be able to…” …stick to my meditation practice on my own…exercise regularly on my own…figure out my priorities and stay committed to them on my own.
I totally get it. I feel that way often.
So, what can you do about this?
1. Recognize that it’s normal. We all get pulled off track from time to time. It’s an expected part of the journey.
2. Remember that human beings are also social beings. Even those of us who are do-it-yourselfers, introverts, or not terribly social. (I’m raising my hand for all three.)
3. Cultivate high-level, supportive relationships. These may be friends, partners and special communities. And don’t underestimate the power of connection with trusted teachers, mentors or coaches who can non-judgmentally help you see your potential, overcome your negative habit patterns, and grow as a healthy, spiritual being. I have several coaches and mentors that I rely on in my own journey and am very grateful for them.
So, bottomline…There’s nothing wrong with you! And you can use your awareness of your disappointment to move forward into something even better. That’s the yogic solution!
