Howdy! Everyday I ask my clients and riders to give a little bit more than the day before. I ask them to find a place within that is untouched, untapped, masked, hidden… a place that they may be afraid to look at and acknowledge… Or maybe just a place that they didn't know was there, but exists. I don't know if most of them get what I am asking or know how to find that uncharted territory on their own, so I try to take them on the journey; a discovery trip, an exploration of self.
Just as the universe is large beyond comprehension and infinite knows no bounds… you are all of that and more. No matter how long and how far you delve into yourself, you will always have more. More ideas, reasons, thoughts, feelings, desires. No matter how much work you believe you have done, you haven't even gotten to the surface of you. Think of yourself as the earth. You have only circled one block in Rhode Island at this point. You haven't even conceived of Papua New Guinea as existing within you, or existing period. You are so vast that it takes many lifetimes to learn the neighborhood of the block you've been circling in this lifetime, let alone the city, state and country of origin for that block.
Knowing that there is infinitely more that is unseen than seen is where you begin. Once you embrace the fact that your perspective is limited and your knowing super-duper small, when it comes to what is possible, you can swing to the other side where everything and anything is possible (and is). You can begin to imagine yourself where you want to be in whatever form that takes. You can see yourself doing gymnastics, aerial work, having no cellulite, building strong abs, flaunting your toned body, or feeling GREAT all of the time. Once you embrace the idea of anything being possible you can stop using the excuse of not ever being perfect as a reason to give up. You can begin to open your heart to what you don't know in reality but you know must be.
So, the next time you are doing the same thing you've done before, make it different. Open to being more, giving more, getting more. Understand that growth happens on an atomic level and, like a fractal, just keeps going and going and going. You are changing and growing with every moment. So when I ask you or you are asked to do more than the day before, be open and feel what comes.
