Day #11: Breathing and Balancing
Today, I want to share two key quotes that inspire me be energetic, strong, and resilient. They inspire me to (En)Lighten Up! and move forward...
“If you know the point of balance, you can settle the details. If you can settle the details, you can stop running around. Your mind will become calm. If your mind becomes calm, you can think in front of a tiger. If you can think in front of a tiger, you will surely succeed”
Mencius – the most famous Confucian after Confucius. 327-289 BC
For me, therefore, a first step is cultivate a mindful state to stabilise and bring clarity to my mind.
“Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they’ve got a second. Give your dreams everything you’ve got and you’ll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you”
William James (Superstar psychologist and philosopher - nuff said)
Second step is to breathe to (re)energise and find my second wind to bring out my best.
Happy Saturday everybody!
