Weekly Question: Are you successful?

Weekly Intention: Generosity/Serenity

Be generous, and take good care of yourself…


“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill

Are you successful?

Let’s start by defining ‘success…’


1. The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.

I would add… success is having a clear goal; in which you have taken action to accomplish, everyday or as often as possible. If you’re doing things, discovering things, you’re succeeding!

Ya gotta have a clear goal…so define it and make sure it speaks to you.

Let’s continue by defining ‘generosity…’


1. The quality or state of being giving or kind.

I would add… generosity can exist inside communication and action.

Ask yourself…

Do I care about how I say something; or how a person might feel, if I say something; even if I say something difficult to say…can I say it in a way that is generous and compassionate? 

There is always an intention, emotion, or spirit behind generosity.

Ask yourself…

What is the spirit behind the generosity? Is it pure, is it truly generous? If it isn’t truly generous, don’t do anything…it’s o.k.

Are you generous, because you feel obligated?  If you feel obligated, don’t do it. Are you resentful, when you are ‘being generous?’ If you are resentful, it isn’t generosity. Don’t do it, don’t do anything, for now, unless you feel joy…it’s o.k. Just take a look… You may need to take care of yourself, first.

Be generous with yourself…

If you notice you’re in the moment, you’re present, you’re paying attention to every detail, savoring the moment, you win. You are a success! If you notice you’re not in the moment, you’re not present, you’re not paying attention to every detail, not savoring the moment, you loose. 

The End.

Articles, books and videos on “peace, healing, being present, expressing yourself, following your dreams, treating yourself, creating your life, enjoying the moment, simplifying your life, getting unstuck, moving forward, having fun, forgiving, pushing yourself, feeling your feelings, following your heart, loving yourself, having a positive body image, laughing, finding flow, being different, possibility, trusting people, grounding yourself, letting go, happiness, finding your calling, creating peace of mind, setting an intention, etc.” Enjoy!

Imagine what could happened if we all focused on the intention this week! The purpose of focusing on an intention, or question is to practice it, so it can be called upon always and forever.

Remember, everyone is on their own path at their own pace, and we all have the same value. Also, while examining the intention and answering the question, make sure you’re not hurting yourself or anyone else.

Please practice yoga safely, and pause or stop when you need to pause or stop.  Listen to your body! Also, please consult a doctor before engaging in the practice of yoga. The Yoga Book blog, it’s affiliates, etc. do not take any responsibility for injuries, actions etc. which may occur as a result of doing yoga, focusing on the question/intention, or doing “Today’s Class.” Also, The Yoga Book blog is not intended to be a substitute for professional help. It is simply information based on experience and some research. Remember, you are making your own choices ~ following your own path, your own heart. ‘Tis up to you, what you do, and your sole responsibility. It is also your responsibility please, to seek the professional help you may need in dealing with the issues that may arise in your life.

…And we all need a little help, sometimes 🙂

The Yoga Book

“The idea for The Yoga Book came to me in a yoga class! I saw it clearly in my mind and I needed somewhere to write it down. Also, I had recently met with a Indian medical doctor, who had said “Different styles of yoga effect people differently, so it is important to know which ‘style of yoga’ is right for you.” So, I decided to create a book, where people could journal about their experiences in a yoga class, write about the different postures – how they felt, get inspired, and write about their insights… Sometimes I would come to class with a problem, any problem, and leave with a solution! And when I did, I’d write it down somewhere, so I decided to create The Yoga Book.”
