The Power of “Yes I can!”

207 faburlifekhloe

People who have never done yoga in their lives or even yoga beginners often find yoga challenging and intimidating. Their first reaction to advanced yoga postures usually are “not a chance”, “there is no way I can do this”, “never going to happen”, “I wish I could do this”, etc. The list of believing how impossible it is to do it can go endless.

Believe it or not, I’ve also gone through the same phrase when I first started doing yoga. I was scared of falling. I was scared of injuring myself. I was basically scared of trying any of the advanced yoga postures. I was stuck at doing the same basic yoga postures for a year and a half. I couldn’t get myself proceeded to the next level. I started to question myself trying to figure out where the problem was. Keep thinking whether I wasn’t strong enough to handle the advanced postures or I wasn’t flexible enough to do the postures. The problem was I didn’t believe in myself. There were always some negative pre-assumptions running on my mind. What if I couldn’t do it? What if I injured myself badly? What if …?

As soon as I started to tell myself “Yes I can!” before attempting to do the advanced postures, I got it done usually in 1 to 2 weeks. It wasn’t a story telling me how flexible I am (In fact, I was born with a moderate flexibility only). It wasn’t a story telling me how great I am at doing yoga. It wasn’t a story telling me how crazy my body can be. It was actually a story showing me the power of “Yes I can!” and how our mindset can change the way we react. Β Obstacles in life are often as challenging and intimidating as the advanced yoga postures. We can either choose to stay in a comfort zone by believing how impossible to conquer the obstacles or to believe in ourselves by saying “Yes I can!” to let go of our fears and start facing. We always have a choice to choose, but the result will end dramatically different.

Stay strong and positive,

    1. Glad you loved the pics! πŸ™‚ It was one of the hardest to be honest as I was doing yoga on a large paper in a studio. It was very slippery. Glad it had a uplifting effect and that’s a huge compliment to me (blushing blushing now)!!! πŸ˜€ You’re welcome Ady. πŸ™‚ It’s always good to inspire you all. Yes, keep it up!!! Yoga is really good for health. πŸ˜‰

      1. Thank you for reminding me sweetie! πŸ™‚ I always do it on a mat, but there wasn’t any white yoga mat in the studio (i think not even in the market). My yoga master brought me a black mat instead, so the professional photographer had to use a large white paper to cover the black mat in order to match the white background. Glad I’m still alive after all lol. πŸ˜€
