NO PAIN NO GAIN

If you ever want to improve on something, you need to work at it. There is no easy way through life without ever having to put our soul into doing, into applying, into practising – those very things that promotes a ‘growth mindset’ and ‘conscious leadership’.
It is not enough to just read e.g. quotes, inspirational or motivational books, attend inspiring seminars etc., without having to apply those underlying principles. I am referring to some basic underlying principles such as ACCEPTANCE, GRATITUDE and HUMILITY. Those principles that govern how we live our lives on a deeper and more meaningful level. These principles that strengths your learning, your practice, and enables you to take responsibility for your actions (rather than blaming others).
The results are evident in the application – taking some form of action (in doing), otherwise things remain the same. If they do change, it may just be on a superficial level. Those principles have in many cases been tried and tested by yourself (without being fully conscious), and others that you respect and admire.
The challenges which we face are in the application of those fundamental principles (apparent in our materialistic world), which are difficult to live by let alone practise. That is our real test!
