Namaskar Everyone and Merry Christmas,

About the original purpose of this thread within the frame work of New Yoga Teacher Questions - Success is the first step toward achieving. That said, success is finishing what you plan to do. If you plan to become a yoga teacher, you must take the first steps toward that goal.

Success requires goals that lead to achievement and happiness. Failure is a result of a learning process and possibly a lack of belief in yourself.... We all have self doubt. But keeping self doubt under control is a difficult task.

If you describe success as earning $60,000 per year, being completely a self employed yoga teacher, and living with your family full time - these are honorable and realistic goals. But it requires a plan of action and a realization that all of your desire may take a little while to come together. Unfortunately!

One last point: It is easier to focus on one goal than many goals, all at once. If the purpose of all of these goals is to stay home with your family, it may be a frustrating development process. It will be hard but not impossible to build anything, if you are on the road most of the week. This may require more time than somebody who lives at home every day.

Om Shanti,
