There are several lessons from Yoga for us entrepreneurs to adopt for success. We’ve shortlisted five of the most important lessons you can learn from yoga that will make you a role model for young entrepreneurs worldwide.
Your yoga is elevated because of how much focus you put into it when you’re practising it. You don’t allow anything to distract you. You stay in the moment and focus all your energy on the asanas. The same should be true of direct selling. Focus on the task at hand. Don’t let your mind be distracted by doubts or doubters. Stay focussed on your path.
Let Go Of Your Ego
In Yoga, there are good days and bad. In order for your mind, body and soul to be in sync, you have to leave all your ego outside the door, and concentrate on your form. It is the same with any business undertaking. For success, you need to put in an extra effort to let go of everything that affects your ego, and work on learning more and being better.
Open Your Mind
One of the biggest lessons from yoga is that you need an open mind to be able to do the amazing strength and balance combinations that otherwise seem impossible. Even when things are difficult, you start slow and build up to the unbelievable. In your direct selling journey, you need to do the same. When things get overwhelming, open your mind and push yourself to achieve the foundation steps first.
No asana is out of your reach if you just breathe, breathe, breathe. When things get difficult or emotional, just like with yoga, you need to learn to breathe at the right moment and for the right duration. When you feel like giving up or quitting, just tell yourself to breathe. When you are afraid or anxious, remember to breathe. It will make all the difference.
Once you’ve mastered a yoga pose, there are several more poses you can be an expert on. There isn’t a finish line. You are constantly learning and growing as a yogi. What makes it so exciting is that it is a journey, just like in direct selling. As you achieve milestone after milestone, there’s even more you can conquer. You will continue to level up and become better and better. There is so much to accomplish every step of the way!
