Some Yogic methods leave students thinking, “Why am I doing this?” Common student questions are something Yoga teachers should be prepared to answer in simplistic terms.
This is not meant in an arrogant way, but please consider this: If I think my life is a lesson in defeat, and a hopeless journey, it will be. On the other hand, if I see opportunities in life, and act on them, at the right time, I will live a life of success and abundance. There is no special entitlement to the path of success. The power to find it is in your mind, and a positive attitude will help you when the time is right. The practice of Yogic methodology will turn any attitude into a positive one. As teachers, we spread the word and do our personal best to be good examples. If we manage to point our students toward an optimum lifestyle with success along the path, we have fulfilled our mission.
