The posts on this thread have mentioned many interesting facets of success. Because most of you are yoga teachers, you have one generalized definition of success. This isn't always a good thing. The popular view of success wasn't conceived by yogis alone.
If you are a yoga instructor, you see the concepts of all forms of yoga within Ralph Waldo Emerson's writings. Example - "To give of one's self" = Karma Yoga and so on. Don't expect the rest of the world to see the deeper meaning of success, even though famous authors, yogis, and spiritual leaders point to the higher meaning of life. Sorry but it appears Bashmaki wants instant money and he wants yoga to be a vehicle of instant payment. He might have assumed a financial burden in the past and now yoga must pay for it.
I don't want to verbally assault anyone, but this retail mindset is not good for a person who wants to become a yoga teacher. It may be better in internet marketing or opening a reputable franchise. Yoga isn't a instant wealth formula. You will have lot's of fun and make money teaching yoga. But Yoga can't pay for the sins or mistakes of the past with big whopping checks.
My friend Bashmaki: You should seek out an internet business, but it may cost more than $400 to start and more than $70 per month to maintain. Also, it will take time and effort.
