GRATITUDE AS A YOGA TEACHER

We frequently look at what other people have or can do and then feel inadequate about ourselves. ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

After reading Brene Brownโ€™s Atlas of the Heart, here is her definition of comparison.

โ€๐˜Š๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ค๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฎ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜บ ๐˜ง๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ง๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ โ€“ ๐˜ช๐˜ตโ€™๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜บ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต.โ€

According to the comparison, โ€œ๐˜‰๐˜ฆ ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ, ๐˜ฃ๐˜ถ๐˜ต ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ณโ€.

Wow. Thatโ€™s a powerful statement. ๐Ÿ™Œ

I recall feeling insecure as a new teacher.

When I saw the success of other teachers, I felt incompetent. I compared myself to others and desperately tried to keep up with or even be like them.

โ€œ๐˜ž๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ค๐˜ฐ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ, ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ ๐˜จ๐˜ฆ๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ค๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ข๐˜ฅ๐˜ฐ๐˜น ๐˜ฐ๐˜ง โ€œ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ต,โ€ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ธ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ฅ๐˜ด, ๐˜ธ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฏโ€™๐˜ต ๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ๐˜ท๐˜ฆ๐˜ด,โ€ Brene added.

Itโ€™s a case of a โ€œfit in but winโ€ situation.

It canโ€™t be good, can it?

We canโ€™t pretend to be someone else. We can only be ourselves if we want to be authentic teachers.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Stop trying to be other people. ๐Ÿ‘‰ Stop trying to get what other people have. ๐Ÿ‘‰ Stop the urge to compete.

We discuss the importance of practicing GRATITUDE. So, what does GRATITUDE mean to you as a yoga teacher? ๐Ÿค”

As a yoga teacher, I believe that being grateful means being content with what we have rather than focusing on what others have.

Play your STRENGTH. Appreciate the GIFT that you already have and use them fully and wisely.

And when we allow this attitude to guide our actions, we will be the authentic teacher we want to be. โœจ
