|how amazing, that from birth they fight for their lives and find their own way- one step at a time|
And if you have achieved your goals, it is equally important to investigate the things you did to make it happen, including, circumstances, attitude, motivation because you should not mistake your success as chance and recognise the effort you had put forward.
And if you have not achieved your sankalpa, try again! Our practice tells us that if we keep practicing, it will come. Repetition helps us learn. In each repetition, we gain more experience and do more things right. Eventually we all get there. If you try once and give up, you loose a great opportunity to succeed the next time. The second, third, fourth..... times are always better. And if it is important enough, then it should not matter how many repetitions we have to make.
Dump the unnecessary stories your mind creates to stop you trying again (because, after all, giving up is much easier than trying) These stories are 'maya' - illusions. And these illusions mask the true potential within us. I love this quote i found on artist Nick Gentry's blog
"Each day holds 1440 minutes. The possibilities are endless"
