Whilst browsing the web this AM, I stumbed upon a great post over at Hangry Pants about lots of subjects, including a bit on yoga. Heather talked about doing an audio yoga and how at one point, she was supposed to do a head stand during the class. She said the instructor talked about how people say, "Oh I don't do that", which is what she was thinking and exactly what I think! I hate headstands. I never do them in yoga class. I never do them. Period. (Did I just end that sentence with, basically, 3 periods?) I like handstands…I would venture to say I love handstands, but headstands…not so much.
You know what the yoga instructor said about the whole no-headstand thing? He asked, "Why set limits?" It's a great question and an even better quote…one I think I will write down for inspiration.
The quote reminded me of one of my all-time faves, which goes, "What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?" I love this quote because it really makes me think and puts things in perspective. I wonder what I hold back from trying for fear of failure. What do you think you would try to do if you knew you would succeed?
