“When someone tells me “no,”

it doesn’t mean I can’t do it,

it simply means

I can’t do it with them.”

30-Day Challenge, Day 10

Nine days down, beginning day 10. Twenty more to go.

We are a third of the way there already!

My yoga challenge is going well.  I have been focusing on flexibility over strength building. My transitions from pose to pose are becoming more fluid. Each day my forehead gets ever-so-slightly closer to my knees but I am still far from being able to fold in half.  Yet seeing daily progress is keeping me motivated.

How’s your challenge going?

Bright-Side of the Web: Shawn Achor

I am rounding off this week with a very humourous and enlightening TED Talk video from Shawn Achor.

Shawn is a psychologist who studies the relationship between potential, success and happiness.

In his talk, he discusses potential. How do we measure potential?

Potential in schools is measured by the average that a group of students perform then based on that finding, teachings are geared to the average learner. Shawn says:

“If we study what is merely average, we will remain merely average.” 

If we change our focus, our potential will change too.

Shawn also describes
5 exercises to create lasting happiness. 

Well, why don’t I stop rambling and let him it explain it for himself. Enjoy:

30-Day Challenge – Day 5

So four days of yoga are under my belt. I’m still jerky and stiff but I am seeing small progress everyday.  Day 5, here I come. Only 25 to go. 

Don’t forget to continue through the weekend. Those days count too. 

How’s it going with you? Have you kept up with your challenge?

The Bright-Side Of The Web: Danielle LaPorte

It is hard to describe Danielle LaPorte but these words come to mind: vivacious, inspirational, cut-to-the-chase, motivational, energetic, Canadian…and the list goes on, and on, and on.

I do not know Danielle personally and only discovered her a few months ago through some random kismet connection through another site. Don’t ya love those! I immediately subscribed to her site and created a folder in my email system to save every post I received.  (Her site is one of my links in Positive Websites I Like →)

Although all of her posts are thought provoking, I have selected this post as this week’s Bright-Side of the Web. Enjoy!
